UP: Another sick lion dies premature death

Etawah: In a jolt to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav's dream project of setting up a lion safari, yet another lion died at the Etawah Lion Safari in UP.
Since 2014, Etawah Lion Safari has seen at least three adult tigers and five cubs perish. Deputy director of Etawah Lion Safari Sanjay Srivastava mentioned that the lion, Kuber, was brought from Lucknow zoological garden in 2014.
Kuber had reportedly been sick for some weeks. His post mortem had been performed by a team of doctors. The safari now has three lions and four lionesses.
Taking serious note of anoter tiger death in Januray this year, the Chief Minister had removed chief forest conservator S K Upadhyaya.
The lion safari project was started by the Mulayam government. It had reportedly failed to make progress during the previous BSP regime. After SP came to power in 2012, Akhilesh had revived the project.
