• Short Summary

    Unpleasant item where lions tread on fly papers that have been laid out in their cage.

  • Description

    Titles read: "A sticky business. Flypapers, we suppose, were originally intended for flies, and until recently these lions adhered to that belief. Now they're stuck up!"

    Del Monte, California, United States of America.

    At Gaye's Lion Farm we see various shots of lions walking about their cage, trying to avoid treading on fly papers that have been spread about. Some get them stuck on their paws and start jumping about to try and get rid of them. This is pretty gruesome.
