It’s incredible how some people think of animals as items they can use and not as living beings who can feel pain just as we do, both emotional and physical pain.
When will this exploitation of animals for the benefit and entertainment of humans end? No one knows, but we are definitely getting closer.
Unfortunately for one lion cub, he had to live through one of the worst cases of abuse we’ve recently heard of. This poor lion’s cub hind legs were broken by a photographer so he can’t run away from tourists who wanted to take photos with them on a Russian beach.
The monster tortured and beat the cub into submission and only fed him scraps.
“He was practically not fed, and for some reason in the frost water was constantly poured over him, this was a real hell.”Yulia Ageeva, who led the rescue.
When the helpless lion was no longer of use to the photographer, he was dumped out in the country and left to die. Fortunately, rescuers found the poor cub tethered in a dirty, old barn near death.
Simba, as he was named by rescuers, was flown then to see specialist vet Karen Dallakyan, who performed surgery to try and repair some of the damage that was done to the poor animal.
Simba is slowly starting to recover and able to walk again, but is permanently deformed due to his extreme abuse.
Dallakyan said the cub suffered, “an ocean of pain from humans”.
Sadly, the vet claimed that Simba was not the first nor will he be the last to suffer at the hands of humans.
“Evil photographers break bones like this so those wild predators cannot escape and behave calmly for pictures [with tourists].”
Vladimir Putin himself was so shocked by the cruelty that he personally ordered a criminal investigation.
