Second abondened cub dies
Divya Bhaskar
Briefly translated from Gujarati

Few days back two cubs of about 2 months were abonded by mother lioness few days back near Meldi temple in Visawadar range. One of the cub died three days back at the range office in spite of care by forest staff. Surviving cub was sent to Sasan Animal Care Centre. It also died yesterday even after necessary care. DFO Katara informed that when the cubs were found in heavily dehydrated condition and hemoglobin level had gone down upto 2%. Mother may have abondened cubs may be because of mating or nay be it was mother for first time, he added.
