Horrific images show lions like ‘walking skeletons’ rescued from zoo in Nigeria

Shocking footage has revealed the state of some captive lions which have been likened to “walking skeletons” at a zoo in Nigeria.

The clip shows the lions lying down in their cages, looking emaciated with their bones on show.

The footage was taken by international NGO Wild at Life – who work to reduce and halt the illegal trade of wild animals and rescue mistreated animals from zoo s – after a call from a concerned visitor about two of the lions.

The group described the lions as looking like “walking skeletons” due to their diminished appearance – calling the establishment keeping them a “horror zoo”.
