The amazing story of a 500-pound meat grinder and a little Wiener Dog
In this particular case Bonedigger – a five year old male lion – became the best of mates with seven year old Milo, a Daschhund or wiener dog relating to their sausage shaped bodies.
Being close friends Milo often fearlessly cleans Bonediggers teeth after the big lion had his fill of bloody raw meat.
After being introduced to each other by one of the park’s animal keepers Milo and Bonedigger have been inseparable over the past seven years, providing both keep their health they will stay best mates for years to come.
Watch the following video and read the story about this incredible friendship.
One should never try to come between an lion and its dinner
It’s universally understood one should never try to interrupt eating lions because the taste of meat, the smell of blood and not in the least the fierce competition at the dinner table brings all sorts of primitive instincts to the surface in even the tamest of lions.
We all know the images of lions growling to each other over a fresh kill even fiercely fighting among each other for a place at the “dinner table” and not seldom drawing blood on family member’s snouts and noses.
But the remarkable friendship between the tiny Dachshund Milo and his pal the gigantic 500-pound lion affectionately named Bonedigger is not limited by the boundaries of nature’s law.
Not only is a after dinner Wiener Floss one of Bonedigger’s greatest pleasures in life., Milo is keeping his mate’ s teeth in good health by licking the morsels of fresh meat from his teeth, but Bonedigger even allows him to join in at dinner time and gladly shares his daily portion of raw. bloody meat with the little Wiener dog.
Here’s their story
A 500-POUND lion and a cute miniature sausage dog have completely turned the idea of “fighting like cats and dogs” on its head.
Bonedigger, a five-year old male lion, and Milo, a seven-year old Dacshund dog, are so close that Milo nonchalantly licks the massive lion’s teeth to clean them.
The two have been inseparable over the past five years at G.W Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. Bonedigger and his pack of dogs cuddle, feast on raw meat and play in the grounds together.
The park also provides shelter for domestic and wild creatures that are homeless. Donations to the park are welcomed at http://usza.us/Emergency-Fund.php.
Now what this story makes even more incredible is that the keeper responsible for looking after Bonedigger, and for initiating this remarkable
firendship between the little Dachshund and enormous lion, has lost both his legs in a bunjee-jump accident but the never kept him from doing such a great job.
The three of them can often be found in the lion’s den spending a relaxing break from work and enjoying each others company.
