NGO Four Paws rescues hungry lions in Sudan

These emaciated lions were starving to death in a Sudan zoo, whose managers claim they no longer have the means to look after all the animals. But NGO Four Paws sent a team on site to care fo them.

Osman Salih didn’t expect to make this sinister discovery

One day, he was walking with his son in the Al Qurashi zoo located in Sudan. While Sudan is going through an economic crisis, the zoo’s managers claim they no longer have the means to look after all the animals. Worried about the health status of these starving animals, Osman Salih decided to sound the alarm on social media. But it was already too late.

On January 20, one of the lionesses died. Alerted by this, the NGO Four Paws decided to intervene. A few days later, a team from the NGO arrived on site, with the veterinarian Amir Khalil. They first focused on caring for the lioness Kandaka and the lion Mansour, who appeared to be in great danger.

After examining the lions, they put Kandaka on a drip to rehydrate her. After 2 weeks of treatment, Four Paws published new photos of the lion Mansour.

    That is why all zoos should be closed & huge sanctuaries in semi-natural habitat started. Not to talk about criminals in USA that are breeding them & killing them for fun 😞

    Those cages are far too small. Please move them to a safe safari type park...plenty of natural open spaces for them to rest and play.

    This go's on all over the world now we have to get serious with all Animals. A high council will be very helpful for the ones that must be fixed.

    They had no business keeping these lions at their zoo if they couldn't care for them. Surely they had the means to contact other zoos who could come to collect them & take over their care. The poor creatures were defenceless. There's no excuse for this neglect. Thank goodness they were saved from a painful cruel death.

    Close the damn zoo and put the animals in a Wildlife rescue far away from the people that caused this.

    If they can"t afford to feed them call for help and find someone to come to your aid its better than letting them starve.

    Why don't they go out and hunt animals required to feed them! WTF! If you have a sanctuary for Lions, have a way to feed them! Criminals would do... poachers, serial killers, child and animal abusers...
