The 200 Pound Lion Who Became Part of the Family

Jeff Glennon - October 26th, 2017

Hipp was orphaned by his family at 4 years old. After a tough childhood in Arkansas, he ran away from the orphanage at the age of 12 and joined the circus.

He immediately felt a deep connection with the exotic animals, and cared for them deeply while working as a circus showman.
