Lion Cub Who Was Rescued From Abandoned Car Is Nicknamed Brave Playing With His New Primate Friend

Since he was found struggling in the province of Sirnak, the sprightly looking lion cub named ‘Brave’ has been pictured playing with his new primate friend in Gaziantep Zoo.

The cute images, taken in Gaziantep Zoo, show the little cat getting up close and personal with a monkey named ‘Can’. Officials at the Wildlife Protection Department said Brave was around one-month-old when he was rescued. They had to feed him with a special blend of lactose-free milk to slowly build up his strength.
