It’s Not Easy Being A Lion But Every Once In A While A Human Will Come Along To Patch You Up
What does it take to want to save a wild animal? What if the said wild animal was a mother?
These images show a lioness with a severely huge cut across the side of her leg. It is possible that she received the cut from a fierce fight with an elephant, rhino, or wildebeest. There are no lack of animals with the ability to cut a wild cat like this one down to size.
As you can see, the animal rescue group draped some cloth over her head, presumably drugged her unconscious, and stitched her up. It’s not clear how much time passed between photographs, but as you can see in the final picture, in the end the cat could move again with her stitches, and watched over a group of young’uns.
Lions are vulnerable in the conservation status scale, meaning they are not endangered yet, but unless changes occur around the circumstances surrounding their survival and reproduction, they may soon be. We hope that lions survive to be recognizable to future generations.
