I’m sure at one point we’ve all considered what it would be like to own an exotic animal as a pet; whether you’d want a monkey, a lion or even a giraffe the imagination would make it possible – if only for a moment.
Fortunately for some of us those dreams become a reality in time, exactly like with starlet Tippi Hedren. She eventually ended up owning a lion as a pet, even going so far as to keep it in the house with them! So it’s safe to say her daughter Melanie Griffith had one of the coolest (if not weirdest) childhoods ever, growing up with the great beast and even playing with him. The video you’re about to watch tells a story of that family and the lion, including the tragic ending.
