Little Tyke

Have you come across these Bible passages?

Genesis 1:29-30King James Version (KJV)

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

And here:

Isaiah 11:6-8 King James Version (KJV)

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.


This is what science says:

From here:

Protein And Fat:

Big cats require diets very high in protein and fat – considerably higher than that of other large carnivores or domestic carnivores.

It is always safest to purchase a vitamin/mineral supplement ready-made from a reputable firm that has a nutritionist on staff when you live in a part of the World where they are available and you can afford them. Many are on the market. This is only one of many (ref).

Vitamin A:

These large cats – like their small domestic cousins – have also lost the ability to convert pro-vitamin carotenoids such as beta carotene into active Vitamin A or retinol.

Arachadonic acid:

Arachadonic acid, a fatty acid derivative, found in the membranes of all body cells, is also essential in the diet of large cats.


If big cats do not receive sufficient amounts of the amino acid, taurine, in their diet they will loose their vision and have a short life-span. The lack of taurine, leads to vision problems (central retinal degeneration), heart failure (acute cardiomyopathy), immune system dysfunction and blood clotting disorders. This ingredient is deficient in the stale meat many facilities are tempted to feed.

And many, many, many other things that say lions must eat meat.


The story of Little Tyke

From here.

Little Tyke was a very healthy, very powerful vegetarian lion:

At four years old, the mature African lioness weighed 352 pounds. Her body stretched 10 feet 4 inches long and could run 40 miles per hour. Her skull, highly adapted to killing and eating prey, possessed short powerful jaws. Normally, African lions eat gnus, zebras, gazelles, impalas, and giraffes. This particular big cat, in her prime and perfect health, chose a more gentle way of life, vegetarian!

She was killed by Hollywood, not literally, she caught pneumonia whilst on a three week movie shoot in Hollywood.  It would appear God put Little Tyke on earth to shut science up.


She did not like meat from the start

With the advice of experts the Westbeaus began weaning Little Tyke onto solid food at three months. Leaving only a favorite doll, they removed most of her rubber toys, replacing them with bones from freshly slaughtered beef. They carried the small cub to the bones. Unexpectedly, she violently threw up!
Experts told them in no uncertain terms that lions couldn’t live without meat. In the wild, lions ate only flesh – eleven pounds a day for an adult female. Alarmed at Little Tyke’s strange behavior, they wondered at how they could introduce meat into her diet? In the meantime, they continued feeding Little Tyke baby cereal mixed with milk.


The answer

The caretakers of this gentle animal sought out animal experts, always asking them about diet. Finally, one young visitor set their mind at ease. With serious eyes he turned to them and asked, ‘Don’t you read your Bible? Read Genesis 1:30, and you will get your answer.’ At his first opportunity Georges read in astonishment, ‘And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.’ At that point, after four years, the Westbeaus finally stopped worrying.


Slurp of the tongue

Little Tyke’s only previous experience with new chicks had been with a hen and her chicks who had wandered onto the lawns around their home on the ranch. Georges thought nothing of it until he saw Little Tyke acting peculiarly, slinking into the house, and looking guilty with lips tightly closed over obviously open jaws. He called ‘Tyke! What have you got?’ Instantly her mouth opened and a little chick popped out, unharmed. Flapping it’s little down-covered wings, it almost flew back to its upset mother. Apparently Little Tyke had affectionately licked the tiny chick, as she was prone to do when, with one huge slurp of the tongue, the little chick had popped into her mouth, and she hadn’t known how to fondle it further!
With the amazed camera crew filming, Little Tyke strode over to the chicks, hesitated long enough to lick the chicks carefully and gently with the very tip of her tongue, and moved away with a yawn.



If you are seeking God, this is the fastest way I know for you to be saved.

I so love the story of Little Tyke I have watched it over and over again!! God is so faithful that he put Little Tyke on earth for a good 9 years to remind us of Paradise and Genesis 1: 26-30. That once upon a time every creature lived in harmony with each other and that this Peaceable Kingdom is coming back again and WE should already NOW on earth work with God to get it established by LIVING as vegans, reconciling creation WITH God and reminding humans that their self-destructive meat-eating lifestyle WAS NEVER God’s plan for ANY living… Read more »
