Facebook campaign to save paralysed lion in Brazil

Help

A three-year-old lion suffering from a rare disease has found a unique home in Brazil - his vet's living room.

The lion - called Ariel - has been receiving alternative treatments, such as acupuncture.

And through an internet campaign Ariel's owner is raising funds to pay for his therapy.
