There is no shortage of sad stories about animals being abused for tourism. One of these stories happens to involve a lion cub who had his legs broken and his spine damaged so he would stay still as tourists took pictures with him. Luckily, this is one story with a happy ending. The baby lion has finally been rescued and is getting a second chance at freedom.
According to reports, Simba was a lion cub who was kept in a barn in Russia in an effort to attract tourists. The little cub was found with several injuries on his body, mostly on his legs and spine. It is believed that Simba was also tortured and beaten by his captors. Luckily, the young lion would eventually find a savior.
Simba was in a sorry state when he was rescued
Simba’s savior is Karen Dallakyan, a veterinarian based in Russia who has been rescuing abused animals. The kindhearted doctor took the cub in and nursed him back to health. In addition to fixing Simba’s broken legs, Dallakyan also made sure the animal got all the love he deserves.
