Truly horrific’ photos of starving lions at Sudan zoo prompt global outcry

    Photos of malnourished and dying lions at a zoo in Sudan have sparked global backlash and a growing online campaign to save the animals.

    The five African lions were found in an emaciated state by activist Osman Salih in Khartoum’s Al-Qureshi Park.

    He posted the photos on Facebook, saying the sight of the sickly big cats “made my blood boil” and started the hashtag #SudanAnimalRescue to raise awareness and seek help.
