The zoo was nearly destroyed and most of its animals including a lioness, monkeys and rabbits were killed or died of starvation. Although alive, both animals (Simba and Lula) look miserable and are suffering from many diseases.
Four Paws' veterinarian, Dr. Amir Khalil, treated them and hopes for their quick recovery. The organization continued:
The food will be distributed with the help of local volunteers. The health condition of the animals is still far from good, but veterinary care should help them to overcome the hardest time and we are hopeful they will recover.
The local volunteers, who are living in a war-torn city and can hardly find enough food to feed their families, brought food to help the starving animals. Please make a donation to Four Paws to support them in their brave work and rescue missions in Iraq.
