Watch Abandoned Lion Cub Cuddle To A Teddy

 

A lion cub cuddles up to a teddy bear in a crib, a ticking clock inside the soft toy imitating the heartbeat of the mother who abandoned him. At the Machia Safari Park in Jodhpur, it was as if a fairy tale had just turned real. Until the wake-up call came just five days later. On Sunday, the two-week-old cub succumbed to the punishing summer heat and weak immunity. “On June 14, he fell ill. We tried to revive him by putting him inside a crib with a teddy bear. We even put a ticking clock inside the toy to simulate heartbeat,” said Sharavan Singh Rathore, wildlife veterinary doctor at the park.
