It is in this vein that George and his staff end up killing a man eating lion and its lioness, resulting in their three young female cubs being orphaned. Although difficult to begin, George and Joy are able to wean and take care of the three cubs, who they adopt as pets.

But soon, they know they have to provide a more suitable environment for the cubs, namely sending them to Rotterdam Zoo, that is except for the smallest, whom they have named Elsa and to whom Joy in particular has become attached as the emotional fighter among the three.

As Elsa grows into lioness maturity, George and Joy provide her with greater freedom away from their property, which may get her into trouble as a largely tame animal. Ultimately, John Kendall, George's boss, directs them to send Elsa to a zoo like they did with her sisters, especially as with anyone in George's job he is soon being reassigned.
