What a disgrace for a country.
I bet politicians in Romania have brand new higher class cars.

This is totally absurd and unfeeling, I find it totally unacceptable, get the kitties onto a drip and start nursing them back to health

Romanian authorities at all levels
are no more concerned with these animals
than their children.

Do you recall the horried institutional
conditions unwanted & diabled children
were discovered to be kept in a few years ago?

Romania needs to step into the 21st century!!

I hope Yorkshire Park is able to raise the funds needed to relocate these beautiful neglected lions. As the site says "originally created to keep the people happy". They have not deserved the deplorable treatment in the past and deserve a bright future. That is the very least that can be done. Please see the link Cristina S. has provided. There are also bears and wolves in poor condition. We need to find out how to help them also.
