A tweeter in Sudan, who has been leading a campaign to save five starving lions being kept in cages in Khartoum’s Al-Qureshi Park, says one of the animals has been moved to a clinic because of its serious condition.
He tweeted: “The extremely sick female was loaded this morning in a cage and said to be transferred to Soba Clinic for better care. According to them there is improvement, difficult to know the truth.”
In another message the tweeter urged people to pray for the lioness.
He added that food had been donated for the other lions.
An online petition had been launched to rescue the animals.
They had been suffering from shortages of food and medicine for weeks, according to a report by news agency AFP.
