Loved you Simba!!!!! This lion was rescued and saved when he was a 3 months old cub. He is not caged or malnutritioned . He is kept in a natural habitat at a farm house and was taken to this house only for a day. He loves human beings and can not be sent back to jungle since he feels more comfortable with the owner and cant survive without him. Thanks to all you for the concern but Simba is well taken care of and a super pampered lion who is well bred and not on drugs. Thank you @AzlanShahOfficial for this gesture. ❤❤❤ #lion #simba #animallovers #animallove #animallover #wild #truelove
