In this heartwarming video, baby lions climb, hug and lick a park worker on his last day on the job.

It's not certain if the man in the video is a volunteer or an official worker at the lion park, but one thing is for sure -- these animals don't want to let him go. Their squeals alone are enough to make you shed a tear.

While Asian lions are already listed as an endangered species, African lions have a shrinking population and could be headed in that direction.
