Elsa the Lioness (BBC Documentary)
Elsa the lioness (c. January 1956 to January 24, 1961) was raised by game warden George Adamson and his wife Joy Adamson in Kenya. Elsa and her two sisters, ‚Big One‘ and ‚Lustica‘, first came under the care of the Adamsons when only a few weeks old. They had become orphaned when George was reluctantly forced to kill their mother during one of his safaris. Her two sisters were eventually sent to the Rotterdam Zoo in the Netherlands, while Elsa herself remained with the Adamsons until she was released into the wild, following the Adamsons‘ efforts to train her to survive on her own.
