He said: ‘This friendship between an 11 pound wiener dog and a 500 pound lion is the only of it’s kind in the world ever seen.’ Mr Reinke, who lost both his legs after a bungee jumping accident, added that the friendship between Bonedigger and his pack is unique. ‘He wouldn’t be so friendly with other dogs - it’s all down to them being pals since he was a cub. ‘ Milo often gives his best lion impression, copying Bonedigger’s ‘puffing’ - a deafening lion growl that can be heard over a mile away. Wild lions use it to communicate with other prides in their natural environment. ‘Milo does his best to copy Bonedigger when the lion tries puffing to communicate with other lions in the park ,’ added John. G.W. Exotic Animal Park has recently been affected by the deadly tornado that swept through Oklahoma on May 20th. The park was damaged and flooded, but is still managing to provide shelter for domestic and wild creatures that are homeless because of the storm.
