Pakistan Couple Uses Sedated Lion Cub As Prop For Wedding Photoshoot, Gets Highly Slammed


Pakistan Couple Uses Sedated Lion Cub As Prop For Wedding Photoshoot, Gets Highly Slammed

We humans have ashamed humanity on many instances by committing a number of crimes but what is more worrisome is the fact that we have been targeting the innocent animals as well. First we usurped their habitat by taking our cities in their forests and then we abduct them and made them do tricks for our entertainment or keep them in zoos so that public can go and have a good look at them.

As per the reports, a Pakistani couple from Lahore has been facing the wrath of everyone after they used a sedated lion cub for their wedding photoshoot. During the photoshoot, the lion cub was seen in a sleepy mode while the couple got clicked in different poses.

Various Pakistani non-profit organizations which work for animal welfare have criticised the incident on the social media networks. JFK Animal Rescue and Shelter has not only made a post on its Instagram account but is also thinking of taking legal action against the studio in which the photoshoot was done.

The founder of JFK Animal Rescue and Shelter told a leading daily that the management of the studio is saying the lion cub was brought to the studio by a friend and it’s just plain coincidence that the shoot was going on at that time so they thought of using the cub for photoshoot.

The name of the studio which carried out the photoshoot is Studio Afzal and they also posted the clips on their Instagram stories under the hashtag #SherDiRani (Lion Queen). However, they deleted the clips after people started slamming them for being cruel towards the lion cub.

Another animal rights and welfare organization “Save The Wild” also took to micro-blogging site Twitter and posted a video of the photoshoot with caption, “@PunjabWildlife does your permit allow for a lion cub to be rented out for ceremonies? Look at this poor cub sedated and being used as a prop. This studio is in Lahore where this cub is being kept. Rescue him please”.

Soon Twitter was flooded with reactions in which people expressed their anger on such incidents. Here are some of the selected tweets:










Such incidents of animal cruelty should stop soon and the culprits should be punished strictly.
