In 1983 Tippi Hendren established the Shambala Preserve in California’s Mojave Desert, a wildlife sanctuary for lions and tigers. This lions name is Togar. He was brought to the sanctuary but had never been around any other lions. He had to live with humans or be put down. His teeth were pulled before he was brought to the sanctuary. The girl in bed with the lion is Melanie Griffith. This family took him in and loved him and he never hurt anyone.
Um he has teeth in the pictures..
Well spotted, Yes he does.
His big teeth, the canines are pulled. It would be cruel if they pulled all his teeth.
If you look, he has 3 of his 4 canine teeth. They may have been filed or broken, but they are there. It’s a shame that she has taken such a reverse position on animal ownership, especially since she and her family are proof that responsible ownership can be rewarding for both animal and human.
The top canines were pulled and the bottom canines were filed way down.
How would he eat they can’t pull all of his teeth. Just the big sharp teeth
Thank God you took this Lion in and saved his life!!THANK YOU FROM ME AND ALL THE ANIMALS THAT HUMANS SAVE!.INSTEAD OF KILL,HUNT,AND DESTROY.
HUMANS AND ANIMALS GOD CREATED TO LIVE TOGETHER IN PEACE AND HARMONY.
WHY IS IT HUMANS THINK THEY SHOULD INHABIT THE WHOLE EARTH??
?I JUST LOVE MELANIE GRIFFITH & HER MOTHER FOR THEIR LOVE OF BIG CATS!!!THEY ARE HUMANS ANIMALS LOVE & TRUST!!
I thank Tippi Henderen & Melani Griffith for their love of big cats. They acted to save the life of an animal. And for Togar he got to experience and give love and coexist with a human family. What a great example to send to other human beings who are ignorant about Lions,Tigers,big cats in general all wild animals!
AWESOME…..What a wonderful thing to do…thank you for chooseing Life.
UTTERLY AMAZING!!!!!! BUT IS IT REAL??
This is INCREDIBLE. <3
Thank you !
Togare is very real. And his previous master missed him deeply to the end of his days. His original master was both famous and infamous, a wicked and brilliant gentleman. Togare was given to Hendren because neighbouts near his original home were terrified of him.
