Don't make the mistake of reading the comments...a bunch of people who don't know any better keep claiming the lion's in pain, probably because they don't realize what lion roars sound like nor what a sleeping lion looks like.* He's in a wildlife sanctuary, rescued from a Bolivian circus.
* I claim to be an expert in sleeping lions, because 99% of the time, the lions we saw in Africa were sleeping!
