This Lion Was Rescued That Had Only Skin And Bones Left

Lions are considered to be the king of beasts. These ferocious creatures are known for their strength and grace, but unfortunately, sometimes, they too become victims to the harsh realities of life in the wild or outside the wild. 

Recently, a starved lion rescued in Colombia had only skin and bones left, and his story has captured many hearts around the world. Jupiter, the lion, was moved on to a location nearer to his mother, Ana Julia, to save his life. Jupiter was found in a state of extreme malnutrition at a young age in a circus. He was so weak that he could barely walk on his own and even stopped eating food. His bones were visible through his skin.

His situation was dire and it was clear that he needed immediate help if he was going to survive. First of all, they transported him to a hospital, where he was given proper food, water, and medical care. Within a few weeks, he began to recover and also gained weight. The team of veterinarians was extremely happy that their hard work paid off. However, Jupiter’s journey to recovery was long and difficult, thanks to the dedicated team. He eventually made a full recovery and was released to live on his own.
