✒ I was thrilled to read the re­cent Yours ar­ti­cle about Chris­tian the lion cub. I didn’t re­alise it was 50 years ago, but back then I worked in Knights­bridge and on my way home to Put­ney I would love to go in and see this adorable lion cub that grew into a very hand­some amaz­ing crea­ture. Time went on and I heard later how John and Ace had bought him and later re­leased him into the wild. I love to think that I was there at the be­gin­ning of his life and to read the won­der­ful story about his legacy re­ally made my week.

Yours says: When Chris­tian was at Har­rods in the late Six­ties the UK was still seven years away from leg­is­la­tion that would ban the sale of ex­otic an­i­mals. To­day Chris­tian’s legacy is help­ing to raise aware­ness of the threat to all wildlife. Chris­tian the Lion: The Il­lus­trated Legacy is out now, rrp £14.99.
