To save a lions life

I was touring in the Serengeti earlier this year when I came across this female lioness with wire wrapped around her waist.
We notified the vets and they were on the scene within 2 hours. We darted her and after examining her wounds decided that we would not put her to sleep but rather to try our hardest to help her recover. On our inspection 3 weeks later we found her and another female mating with 3 male lions. Some months later I photographed these 2 lionesses with these beautiful cubs. This is what makes me passionate about my job.

Unfortunately, it’s not only finding snares on lions but we do get them on all sorts of animals through parks in Africa. We will continue saving these animals as best as we can.
