Lufkin lion cub getting along well with father

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

The Ellen Trout Zoo has released video of Ashur the lion cub playing with his father, showing how the introduction has been a success so far.

The zoo released the video on its Facebook page.

"In the wild, female lions separate from the pride for the first several weeks when they give birth and then re-join the pride with cubs," the post states. "Over the past two weeks, Ashur was slowly introduced to his dad so that the family is now together. He can play with and learn from both his parents."

Ashur was born on July 15.
