African Lion Charlie Brown has surgery.

Wednesday 19th January : African Lion Charlie Brown has Surgery.

African lion Charlie Brown has unfortunately been losing his hair, and the vet has been keen to get skin samples. As the surgery is very minor it was performed in his accommodation block - this was better for his welfare as it meant he was anaesthetised for the shortest possible time.

We filmed the procedure so have a look to see what happened!

Charlie recovered well from his surgery, so we are now waiting for the results.
