WEB DESK: Actress Babra Sharif adopted a lion cub under the Lahore Zoo adoption scheme on Wednesday, local media reported.
The actress also deposited Rs. 2 million cash for the food of other animals. The zoo will now place a plate on the cage of the cub bearing Babra Sharif’s name as the sole adopter of the animal.
The adopted cub is in bad health. Zoo vet Dr Babar Saleem said that the next two months were extremely critical for it.
“The cub has developed rickets owing to malfactorial disorder. The second major reason behind cub’s deteriorating health is that it could not have her mother’s milk,” he said.
The lioness had A Galactia (loss of milk production owing to hormonal imbalance) and she stopped giving attention to the cub.
