VET Andy Fraser sits in a plane with three huge lions — hoping the only roar he hears is from the engines
The Kalahari lions, each weighing 200kg (31½st), were sedated for a private jet trip.
They were being moved across South Africa from one game reserve to another to reduce the risk of inbreeding.
Conservation group The Bateleurs, which has 200 volunteer pilots, said: “Kalahari lions are renowned for being the largest, with highly sought-after genes.”
