Animal lovers were quick to express their anger after seeing the harrowing photos of the animals, prompting them to question the zoo’s treatment of the wild cats. Many have accused the zoo staff of neglecting the animals.

Apparently, the lion suffers from a genetic defect yet its appetite and activities are not affected.

The official also claims that the Beijing zoo staff had attempted to help the lion gain weight but was unsuccessful. Most lions in zoos, according to the official, tend to have genetic defects because of inbreeding.

On the other hand, the poor-looking tiger was the result of inbreeding among a small group of white Bengal tigers, the official reveals.
