Unfortunately there will be more incidents like this as long as wild animals are subjected to cruel solitary lives behind bars.

Noted with sadness for the suffering of both this young boy and this lion.

I could not agree more with Gail. I feel the same way.

Thanks Cher!

The Chinese use other animals to feed the lions usually but they may have 'progressed' to using orphans!?@# Just appalling.Nothing the Chinese do would surprise me but I sincerely hope this was just an accident. Poor child.
