Lioness dies of old age in Gir
Times of India
The carcass of a 16-year-old lioness has been found from Sasan range of Gir wildlife sanctuary. Postmortem revealed that the death was due to old age. According to forest officials, the carcass was spotted by beat guards on patrol on Saturday. "Incidentally, it was the same lioness which was unwell some four months ago.
The lioness was then rushed to Animal Care Centre in Sasan from where she was released later after being provided with treatment. However, at the time of her release, veterinary doctors at the centre had termed her as terminally ill due to rheumatism and had predicted short life-span for her," said a forester. The PM report released by the Animal Care Centre in Sasan also corroborated this fact. Meanwhile, sources in the forest department said the department is in the process of locating a few ageing lions to provide them with nourishment medicines to enhance their life span.
