Vets Give Rescue Lion Sight-Saving Surgery

A team of surgeons successfully removed the lens from a 330-pound male lion’s eye. Joseph, a 17-year-old big cat, began squinting in May of this year and staff at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida knew they had to act fast. After he was sedated with a dart gun the team worked to get the huge beast onto the operating table and begin the process of removing his lens. It had become luxated, or detached, which can be a regular problem for lions that are reaching their senior years. After being loaded into a crate and reaching the operating table a team of four vets got to work on the sedated animal.Videographer / Director: Big Cat RescueProducer: Dan Howlett, Chloe BrowneEditor: Sonia Estal
