Very sad to see such a powerful animal unable to move like that. I hope they can figure out what it is that is ailing Ariel. If not, I don't think that this is any kind of life for a Lion.

Thanks Naoko for this story. I hope they can do something for this poor creature. Like Lisa said, this is no life for a lion.
