So Tragic: Starving lions in Sudan zoo

Video taken of lions at a zoo in Sudan’s capital city show they are in a desperate state.

The malnourished lions are at the Al-Quarashi Park in Khartoum. Apparently, the zoo is unable to feed and look after the animals. It’s reported many have died. Three skeletal lions remain.

The Voice of America posted this disturbing video on its Twitter account.

Several lions are gaunt and starving at a rundown zoo in Sudan’s capital, drawing an impassioned response across the world.

Advocates are saying that many international organizations are willing to help, including an emergency rescue group expected in Sudan shortly.
