A lioness and her two cubs, a male and a female, are now on display for visitors to the Songkhla Zoo in the southern province.

The two cubs, now 4-month-old and healthy, were born on July 22 this year, said a zoo official.

 

The three made their public appearance for the first time on Friday.

 

During the upcoming New Year holidays, visitors would be allowed to hug the two cubs. Meanwhile, Zoo keepers will prepare them for the close encounter.

 

VDO footage on Nation website shows the mother lion and her cubs moving from their enclosure to an open area where visitors can see them closely.

A wild beast snatched from another continent, caged and deprived of the life that it was meant to have, all for the sake of a few shekels and the amusement of a few idiots.

How very Victorian, how very sad.

It's not a "pride":

 

"A lion pride consists of a few adult males, related females and cubs."

 

It's a "single parent family".

I visited Songkhla zoo about 18 years ago. Like most other zoos it was utterly depressing seeing the animals restricted and caged.
