Denial in the lions’ den
Zookeepers thought visitors were joking when they complimented them on the lion cubs playing with their mother – because they believed the three lions in the enclosure at Hang Zoo, in lower Austria, were two females and a sterilised male!
Simba had supposedly been sterilised before he was imported into the country as part of a routine birth control measure, the orangenews website reports. But after several people repeated the compliment, the keepers checked and discovered that there were indeed four baby cubs in the cage.
“We even thought it was a joke when we got to the cage because we couldn’t see any babies,” one said. “But then we found that one of the female lions had gone into one of the caves in the enclosure and when we checked we found that she did indeed have four cubs with her.
“We had noticed that Pia the mother was putting on weight but we thought we were just feeding her too much – and had even put her on a diet. Because we thought Simba was sterilised it just didn’t occur to us that she might be pregnant.
“But mother and cubs seem to be doing well thank goodness – and Simba seems very proud of his offspring.”
