Lions are Cheaper Than Buffaloes: Talking about animals, the lion is considered to be the most powerful. No matter how cute or big an animal is, the story of the king of the jungle is unique. However, the king of the jungle is not getting any special value in the neighboring country of Pakistan. The condition is that preparations have been made there to sell lions to people for less than buffaloes.
According to local reports from Pakistan, the administration of Lahore Safari Zoo is preparing to sell its African lions, that too at a very nominal cost. The interesting thing is that some lions are being sold for less than buffaloes. In the first week of August itself, they are preparing to sell 12 lions. It is strange to hear this, but it is true that they are being priced less than buffaloes.
lion cheap and buffalo expensive
The administration of Lahore Safari Zoo is ready to sell some African lions at a nominal price of 150,000 Pakistani rupees per lion i.e. only 50 thousand rupees in Indian currency. In comparison, a buffalo is available on the online marketplace for a hefty amount of Rs 350,000 to Rs 10 lakh. The Lahore Safari Zoo management is expected to sell 12 of its lions in the first week of August to raise money. Three lions have been reared inside the Lahore Safari Zoo.
Why are lions being sold?
The Safari Zoo of Lahore is the largest zoo in Pakistan. Spread over 142 acres, this complex has a variety of wild animals, but it is recognized only because of the lion breeds present in the zoo. In such a situation, the decision to sell them is making headlines. This is being done because not only their upbringing is now costly for the zoo. According to the zoo administration, they sell some lions and the money from it is used in the management. Last year also 14 lions were sold in the Safari Zoo citing lack of space.
