Amazing Three Legged Lion Shows Resilience After Losing Leg to Poacher’s Trap



Given their power and place in the food chain, one may not expect to see a vulnerable side to lions. Unfortunately, trophy hunting and poaching have drastically affected the big cats’ populations, historic range. And as in the case of Clarence, a dominant male lion.

In 2011, Clarence became trap in a deadly poaching snare in Uganda’s Murchison Falls National Park. H was found by rangers from the Uganda Wildlife Authority. They immediately brought him to the park’s vet upon realizing the shocking state of his nearly severed left hind leg. To spare Clarence from a life of pain and possible infection, vet decided to amputate the limb, leaving the poor lion with three legs and a unique limp.

Clarence immediately adjusted to life three legged lion and was warmly welcome back by his brother, Bernie.

Sadly in 2013, Bernie was killed by a trap similar to his brother. Furthermore visit African Wildlife Foundation’s website.
