About This Book

This is the story of a lioness that refused to eat the flesh of other beings..

In America, during the mid 20th century, an African lioness in frustrational zoological confinement, neurotically killed it's cubs after 4 consecutive pregnancies..

The 5th child was waited for anxiously by zoo attendants, who managed to step in and save the little fellow before the mother was able to inflict more than injury to one of her daughters leg..

"Little Tyke", they called her.

She was given to the care of Georges and Margaret Westbeau, who have since written the story of her life in the book "Little Tyke" (By G. Westbeau - Theosophical Publishing House, IL, USE, 1986).

From the start, the young Little Tyke, a clearly advanced soul, refused to eat flesh. She also steadfastly chose not to accept any gifts of bones that were naturally offered to her. In fact, Mr. Westbeau observed that she could spend an hour at a time eating the succulent tall grass in the fields.

This caused a good deal of concern and anguish for the Westbeaus, who both felt strongly that she should be eating the flesh of others in order to maintain her own health.

Their attempts to trick her into doing so were all unnsuccessful.

They even tried adding a few drops of blood to her milk in order to accustom her to the taste of flesh, but just one drop was enough to make her turn away from her milk in disgust.

Her diet consisted predominantly of cooked grains of various sorts, raw eggs and milk. At 4 years she weighed in at around 160kgs, and one visiting zoo curator apparantly even claimed that Little Tyke was the most healthiest of her species he'd ever come across.

Sadly, at the age of 9, while in Hollywood for filming of a nation-wide television broadcast, Little Tyke suffered from Pneumonia and died some short weeks later.
