Lion cub abused at circus gets second chance
Barely days after he was born, Magnus the lion was separated from his mother and turned into a tourist attraction by a Spanish Circus. Lions grow at an incredibly fast rate, but his owners wanted him to remain small as long as possible. To achieve this, Magnus was fed ONLY mixture of YOGURT AND BREAD! This abusive diet had severe effects on his bone, muscular and general development, creating what is called a Stenosis of the Esophagus, that is, a narrowing of the esophagus passage that renders impossible Magnus' normal food ingestion. At that point the circus owner, having no use for a sick lion, took him to a vet to have him euthanized. An EXTRAORDINARY GROUP OF PEOPLE joined forces to save this incredible little lion.
