After the media highlighted the deteriorating condition of Shankar, the 11-year-old lion in the Jaipur zoo, it seemed to be a fit case for euthanasia. After a serious attack of paralysis crippled Shankar’s hind legs, the wildlife department of Rajasthan had sought permission from the Central Zoo Authority in Delhi to put the animal "to sleep". The permission was granted. But then in stepped an NGO, the Morarka Foundation, which agreed to fund the animal’s treatment and save it. So, X-rays were taken and the required injections imported. The treatment finally began in October this year and Shankar has since responded to it. The lion has reportedly made an 80 per cent recovery and could be fully cured by year-end.
