This Lion’s Transformation Is Remarkable!

This is Aslan, a white lion living in South Africa. Aslan has literally lost his bite, after having broken four of his canine teeth. This, as animal behaviorist Kevin Richardson – more commonly known as the “Lion Whisperer” – describes, has left the lion increasingly aloof and agitated. In order to be relieved of his chronic pain, Aslan needs six hours of surgery to fix this, whilst under general anesthetic.

This amazing footage shows Aslan both before and after the procedure. It demonstrates just how withdrawn Aslan was before the operation, as well as the intense joy he feels afterwards, having been relieved of such suffering. In fact, Aslan’s transformation is so remarkable that he is reintroduced into the wild!
