A lioness has given birth to three cubs in the Gir forest region of Jafrabad taluka in the district, forest officials said on Tuesday. The cubs were born on Monday night in the forest region near Nageshari village, they said. Lions are enlisted as a Schedule-1 animal under the (Indian) Wildlife Act, whose existence is considered to be on the verge of extinction. The Gir forest is spread in three districts of Junagadh, Amreli and Bhavnagar, and is considered to be the last abode of Asiatic lions. Earlier this month, a lioness had died after falling in a well in Khamba taluka.
