Animal rescue: Lion, wolf find safe passage out of Ukraine war zone

Animal rescue: Lion, wolf find safe passage out of Ukraine war zone


Radauti, Romania

Simba the lion and a wolf named Akyla have been evacuated from a zoo in war-torn Ukraine and brought to security in Romania in what an animal legal rights group concerned in the procedure suggests was a 4-working day mission “full of dangers” even further hampered by border entry bureaucracy.

The grownup male lion and the gray wolf, who ended up fully awake throughout the risky journey owing to lack of tranquilizers in Ukraine, arrived Monday at a zoo in Radauti, from a zoo in Zaporizhzhia in southeast Ukraine.

Now at a safe and sound distance from the conflict and after expending four times in cages in the back again of a van, the two animals had been recovering from the journey in their new enclosure Wednesday, regaining their power as they lounged in the shade.
