The first lion named King appeared in the family Berberova after architect Lev (amazing coincidence name and animal) took the cub at the zoo, where waived his mother, and was able to leave it. So lion was in the family Berberova, which consisted of four people: Lev Berbers, his wife Nina and two children - Roman and Eve. Different animal calm disposition and showed no aggression toward people. Of animals in the family, in addition to the King, were also cats, dogs, parrots, hedgehogs, raccoons, snakes, and dog Chap. Twenty-four hours a day, a lion cub was under the watchful attention. At first he was fed milk from the teat. Then, when the cub grew up, went to the meat ... the cub gave a resounding name - King, which means - King. From a small and puny in front of King turned into a real king of beasts. A year later, it was already a mighty handsome man with a proud carriage and luxurious mane. A noble character is quite answered his royal descent. "My husband Lev loved all living creatures - says Nina Berberova - Therefore, in our hundred-meter apartment, besides me, daughter Eva and son Roma, had a lot of animals and birds. cub and did not appear by accident. Somehow, my daughter decided to take a walk on the Baku zoo. In one of the cages Eve saw a small gray ball of pathetic and said to me: "Mom, look, there's a dog dies." I replied, "Daughter, it's not a dog, it's a little lion cub , the king of beasts. I guess he got sick. "I begged the zoo director to give us this unfortunate child. We knew a veterinarian Mikhail Smirnov, who helped us to get a lion cub. Dubbed we its the king of beasts, of course, King. When the lion bit stronger, grew up and became a handsome lion, we would like to return it to the zoo. But when they tried to take him there, he made ​​a real scandal, not just the car flipped. We were told not to live in a zoo or in the wild, he would not be able. had to leave our pet . " History of the content of a lion in a city apartment has gained great popularity in the Soviet Union, Family and manual lion was shot several documentaries. For the experiment, the scientists watched with interest. King became a star of the silver screen after starred in several films - "The Lion ran away from home," "Girl, boy and a lion" and especially "Unbelievable Adventures of Italians in Russia." Lev Berbers architect quit his job and became a "producer" of the king of beasts. Berberova Nina: "King adored Leo L. and gently towards me, apparently realizing that I - a woman! Whether it awakened the jealousy of the male, whether it was another reason, but as soon as he felt his youthful age, King was to spend the night on our marital bed between me and Leo Lvovichem. And very often in such a night, I woke up by the noise and found her husband on the floor next to the bed. This King would push his master bed since he did not understand that in this situation odd man ... So late Lev by the grace of his pupil filled his not one lump "From the memoirs of photographer Vladimir Alekseev, who often came to visit Berberova ruffled mane huge lion and the will of fate had witnessed the bloody denouement. "They were stoned King heaters, fed him all sorts of mixtures of nipples. Initially, the cub did not act forepaws. So they turn to massage them for days. Gradually, the lion began to walk, but the defect is for life. If you look closely, in "The Extraordinary Adventures of ..." to see when King runs down the street, its front paws raking as flippers. King grew big-very big, beautiful-prekrasivy. And the good man - which the world had never seen. King behaved exactly in exactly like an ordinary house cat. The only problem: this "cat" and strove to lick the guest, but the tongue of a lion - just sandpaper. But if you really really bored, it could tsyknut, shove. Leo went meekly in a corner or climb on the mezzanine, where it was his rightful place. " Artistic ability was at the King in childhood, when he played a variety of scenes with her ​​toy friend Boniface - plush lion. At the same time he showed uncharacteristic for such a beast wit . Later these qualities in him noticed and Azerbaijani filmmakers, who took him in two films: "A girl, a boy and a lion" and "The Lion ran away from home." However, the neighbors were not happy with the famous movie star. The spacious apartment on the second floor prestigious district of Baku was the smell - even hang up the ax and wear a mask. And then there came a lion! .. Besides King from time to time, most of the night, proclaimed its royal origin loud roar. Dozens of people living in neighboring apartments, asleep jumping into a cold sweat. walking a King on a leash in the park early in the morning, but when it came to the entrance, no, no, but faced with the neighbors. Not all safely transferred when the stairway to the wall of their pritiskivala dvuhsotkilogrammovaya carcass of a lion. On Friendship lion and a dog "Balcony of our apartment overlooking the roof, we have put on it the grid so that King could not get out on the street, and quietly allowed him to walk across the living space - says Nina Berberova. - Sometimes, when he got bored, he came into our bedroom with her ​​husband, climbed onto the bed, face it me or Levu, went belly up on his back and slept soundly. In the morning, wake up with the others, had breakfast, played with the kids. They pulled his mustache, drove like a horse: with it you can do anything you want, no matter what he did not take offense and never answered back. King friendly attitude not only to all the two-legged, but also to the four-legged: respect for all animals, that we had in the house. Especially with friends Chapoma, a small black dog, vesivshey less than four pounds. Chapu was already six years old, when there was a King, so he thought he was a such a "grandfather", and King youngster. If the "young man" was trying naprokaznichat, tiny Chap ran him through the apartment and barked. Huge King crawled under the table and draws in the tail. They slept together, too, first went to the King, and then Chap was arranged in his huge "plush" legs. Ate from the same bowl: the first "dish" Chap tried, then was coming King. Chap was tiny and ate very little, as King for lunch needed a refrigerator products: a few pounds of meat, eggs, fish oil. Salary we had a small, and feed a huge adult lion was very difficult. So we had to take part-time job: to accept the proposals of the shooting.Work in "Unbelievable Adventures of Italians in Russia" was for our King and stellar last hour. " Deadly Game and worldwide fame - "posthumously" As a temporary housing for the period of filming in "Unbelievable Adventures of Italians in Russia" Berberova gave the whole school. According Leningrad every day drove a car with a loudspeaker and warned that such a school is living a lion, and it is not necessary to approach this place. vowel But this ban had an effect at all. Berberova Nina: "On that day, our assistant Sasha in a school gym playing with King football. Huge windows in this room came out just at the apple orchard. Sasha left for a few minutes one King went out, pour yourself a cup of tea. And apparently, at this moment appeared Markov (never forget his name). King saw a new man and went to the window. According to eyewitnesses, Markov was making faces and jumping, turning a face, then back to the lion. For King it was a call for the game: our assistant so rehearsed with him for an episode of "Italians" when the lion runs for man and knocks him to the ground. He stood up on his hind legs, giving the glass in the window, ran to this Markov, threw him to the ground. Girl waiting for him at the fence, yelling, "Help me, a lion tearing a man!" And then we heard shots. Then he learned that from lunch back police lieutenant Gurov. He heard the screams, ran to the fence, not understanding what's going on, shot at King. Leo immediately moved away from the guy at the side of the broken window. But Gurov apparently appeared excited, and he emptied the whole clip in the King. Student Valentin Markov escaped with only minor scratches. " Thus ended the life of a movie star - the King of beasts. Everyone is very worried, crying. After movie rental abroad came to the King world fame. posthumously. Berberova From memories of Eve: "Dad jumped out the window and ran to the claps . King lay on his side, close to the fence, with wide-open one with wondering eyes. Not realizing what was going on, Dad rushed to the King, and embraced him, but the King was no longer breathing. At this point, my mother ran. From a small crowd outside the fence of a woman's voice: "Your lion tore the man" ... The next morning, all went to an open truck. King was nestled in some mourning veil, a head wind stirred the dead lion's mane. We went to the cottage to the writer Yakovlev, where the lion recently visited and where they decided to bury him. Remember hitch when King started filming from the car, a huge circus Jura who worked with us in the movie, crying, all suspended, took the King on his shoulders and carried him to a young oak. We realized that with the King to the grave out irreplaceable part of the soul, that this beast caught us terminally ill cub, many times difficult to be ill, and saved us from death, answered us with love, devotion, spiritual communion and intimacy, becoming his own son, kinship with whom we will be proud of all my life ... " But more all suffered Chap. When we returned to Baku, in the hallway left of the box with things King, collars, leashes, bowls. Chap first ran, wagging his tail, looking for the King, and then climbed into one of the boxes lying there and sighed. vet said it will not last long, because it PIS. Indeed, the next day and did not become Chapa. caused the death of Leo serious psychological trauma to family members. At night, children Eva and Roma hysterically screaming in his sleep: "Kika! Kika! Let's go home! Kika do not go! ". It was necessary to save the children. Berberova So the family got a second cub, whose memory of the first Lion King was also named ... "I was opposed to the start of the second lion, but her husband insisted, - like a presentiment Nina Berberova trouble. - Yes, and the Moscow intelligentsia is very excited about the idea. Sergey Samples, Yuri Yakovlev, Vladimir Vysotsky, Marina Vlady raised money and started looking for a new cub in the entire Soviet Union. Found in the Kazan Zoo. Month, he was held in Moscow quarantine, then he solemnly handed to us.Second King was not at all similar to our first pet: that we saved from death, and he thanked us for this respect and a good attitude, the same required to respect it.
