Lion cubs bred in captivity are ripped from their mothers at less than a month old. At just a few weeks old, cubs will begin to be handled by tourists for pictures, often roughly, causing them chronic stress and sometimes injury. Any aggressive behavior they display is punished using fear and pain. Tourists are even instructed to hit the lions if they act unruly. When they are not being handled, they are kept in small concrete enclosures and fed inadequately.A group of lions in a facility in

Amazing News! Scientists Have Just Discovered a Hidden Group of Lions

New Species of Lion!   Some lions in Ethiopia look a bit different than regular lions: they have a dark mane that extends from the head, neck, and chest to the belly, & are smaller and more compact. It wasn't known, however, if they represented a distinct species. Now, a genetic analysis conducted on a group of these lions found only at the Addis Ababa zoo has shown that they are a genetically distinct species — a discovery that has prompted immediate action to protect them in the wild.

'This was the first graphic novel I ever read and it cemented that graphic novels were going to be a part of my life from that point on. I was completely captivated by this true story of a group of lions navigating the desimated streets of Baghdad after the zoo in which they live is destroyed by bombs. The story is a gut wrenching, heartbreaking and surreal glimpse into the Iraq War that is perfectly illustrated in the gorgeous artwork of Niko Henrichon.'Submitted by Lisa Koski, Facebook
