What a wonderful story and lovely photos. How brilliant that they are back together again, and obviously in an amazing enclosure at Longleat.

Thanks Doogs. A good smile and a happy way to end the afternoon.

Doogs. Saw that on the news last night, and meant to post it. Amazing they both recognised each other after 3 Yrs, and to see the hugs was brilliant especially as they are both Males, and that can be a problem sometimes even though they are related
