  • Description

    Full VIP treatment was given to "Zimba", a lion cub with a paralysis that has afflicted lions in the Etosha Pan area of South West Africa and has so far puzzled veterinary surgeons in South Africa for several years.

    A South African Air Force Dakota flew the cub from its home country to Ondersteport, near Pretoria, where the animal doctors will treat it.

    During the flight an Air Force coporal fed "Zimba" with liver and offal. All the time the cub shivers as if in a fever. The Onderstoport veterinary surgeons hope that by examining "Zimba" they will find a way of either preventing the spread of the virus or at least discover some means of curing animals striken by it.
