Unlikely animal friends: Lion, dog and rabbit play together

Monday, June 25, 2012

They're an inseparable trio and they are out to prove that everyone can be friends regardless of what they eat or how they look.

Simba the lion cub, Monty the dog and Thumper the floppy-eared rabbit — who all live in Scotland — play together every day and this video captures some of their wrestling matches.

Thirteen-month-old Simba’s hunting instincts seem to be temporarily absent — he prefers a snuggle with his bunny mate to a killing spree.

The third member of the group, Monty the dog, sometimes dominates Simba when they are playing. Simba, who usually lives at an Edinburgh zoo, was taken to a keeper’s home after he became ill.

That’s where he met Thumper and Monty, who have reportedly helped the lion cub recover from his illness.
