Ridiculously Cute Lion Cubs Hug Man and Melt Our Hearts (VIDEO)

Awww! 8

doug hamiltonThere's nothing more adorable than baby animals -- especially wild ones who are domesticated and love & trust human beings. What's cuter than seeing a baby from a typically ferocious breed cuddle up to a human like a parent?

I've never been able to resist wild animal babies who don't exactly know just how powerful they will grow up to be. (If only they could stay that loving and sweet forever!)

A man named Doug Hamilton has gotten plenty of extra hugs and kisses -- from a group of lion cubs who just can't resist showing how much they adore him.

Take a look at this video clip below of Doug getting more than a few lion hugs -- and see if you can resist cracking a smile.

Do you believe how special those little lions are? I have to admit -- watching this video kind of makes me want one. Or at least I'd like to visit these particular lions and let them snuggle up to me for a while. (Something tells me my neighbors wouldn't appreciate me having a jungle cat in the backyard.)

This video just goes to show that all creatures are capable of love, and respond to people showing them compassion and kindness. If only we could all warm up to each other like these precious lions, the world would be a much nicer place!

Would you ever want an exotic animal as a pet?
