Junagadh/rajkot, December 15: Recently, a forest official rescued two lions 
from a well in Jepur village. Both the lions were fighting over a mate when 
they fell into the well.
On November 29, another lion with a fractured lower jaw was rescued and 
treated for four months at Sasan animal care centre.
A lion fell into a well in Pichhvi village in September when it was fighting 
with another lion. The injured animal was rescued by the forest department and 
treated for multiple fractures. At present, it has been kept at Devadia 
intepretation zone.
Four months ago, a farmer hit a lion on its head in self defense and injured 
the animal severely. On noticing the uncommon behaviour of the big cat, 
foresters caged the animal at Hiranwell village in Gir forest and shifted it to the 
animal care centre at Sasan Gir.

cruelty is beyond understanding. Please help to stop this madness."
