A lion was found dead in a village in Khamba taluka of Amreli district on Thursday morning. The cause of death is yet to be ascertained, the forest department said.

According to sources, the carcass was found in the morning from the field of Babu Vekariya, which is located in Tulsishyam range of Gir (north). Foresters rushed to the spot and took the carcass away for postmortem examination (PM), the report of which was inconclusive.

Confirming the news, district forest officer of Junagadh M Raja said, "The lion was about nine to 10 years old. As the cause of death was not ascertained from the PM, we have sent the viscera of the animal to Junagadh's forensic laboratory." The other parts of the animal were intact, Raja added.
