Childhood is usually an exciting period that is filled with lots of memories. What makes it intriguing is that you can still remember some events that took place even while you were still a kid. As a child, your parents will always show you much love and affection ensuring they provide everything needed to make you happy. Children get more attention than adults, this is because they are more vulnerable to certain occurrences like accidents. As a mother, your priority is to ensure your kids are well-protected from anything that can harm them. Children love gifts especially toys to play with, buying them such items will get them excited.
Dickson was the last child born from a family of 4, his parents were farmers in a small town in Ireland. At age 5, Dickson had a passion for wildlife, he loved playing with pets like dogs, cats, and other domestic animals. The parents will always take him and his siblings to a wildlife to see some creatures. When they return, Dickson will spend time drawing and giving them names. He was such a great artist with a good photographic memory even at that early age. For over 6-months, Dickson’s father had not taken his children to any wildlife to see some animals. This became a problem for this young lad, suddenly he became very sad because his father refused them an opportunity of visiting a zoo to see these animals.
On a particular day, when the father went out to check on his crops, this young lad sneaked out of the house. For several months they had not visited any wildlife and the boy wanted to go again. He enjoyed seeing the monkeys jump on trees, how the lions roar at other smaller ones. While the father was still away, Dickson ran to the zoo, when the father returned, the boy couldn’t be found.
It was already getting dark and still yet, he wasn’t found, suddenly, they received a call from the wildlife attendant. The young lad was seen playing at the zoo, on getting to the site, the parents noticed their son playing with the animals. He was seating among lions and drawing them, nobody could approach these wild creatures, not even the attendant. It took them more than 3-hours to get him out of that area.
That was unbelievable to see such a thing, it has never happened before, anyone that ever tried to get close to lions ended up killed by the wild creatures. But, here was a boy having fun with no fear of what could happen, the whole family was astonished at such a scene. Within a few minutes, there was a massive crowd at the site with people taking pictures of the child with the wild beast. it was a great event that ever took place in that small town, Dickson grew with a passion for these animals. In the whole of that town, nobody ever attempted to get inside the zoo except this young lad.
