Like a scene directly out of The Lion King, this baboon stole a lion cub and groomed it for over an hour.

In an attempt to reduce the threat to their troop, it is common for baboons to kill young lions before they grow up and start hunting on their own.

However this grooming behavior has never been documented before.

Reports from around the park later in the day confirmed that the lion cub was later killed.

Sorry to disappoint but they were never gonna be best friends.
