An amazing story from lion Baringo

 

In 2004, Baringo, who was barely 3 weeks old, fell off a circus truck on the way to Mayenne. A local man discovered in astonishment that the little ball of fluff lost in the ditch wasn’t a dog, neither a fox, but a starving lion cub. He took the animal in, gave him milk, before warning his district mayor and a vet. Entrusted to the Refuge de l’Arche, Baringo is today a wonderful 150 kilos male.
