Baby lion cub at Chester Zoo (RIP)

Lion cub taken just before Christmas at Chester Zoo, England. He was out playing with his mum and dad keeping the small crowd entertained!

 

An update on this little fella (via becki):

 

It is with deep regret that Chester Zoo announces the death of Asiatic Lion cub Chakra. Chakra, who was born in August last year, was put to sleep on Friday evening (January 9).

 

Regrettably, Chakra had been diagnosed with a developmental disorder which had recently become apparent as he grew and became more active. - link - January 9 2009

 

Really sad and tragic news :(
