Cliff-hanger! Lion cub saved by mum in dramatic scenes caught on camera as he cries out pitifully for help
Last updated at 10:14 AM on 26th September 2011Clinging on for dear life to the side of a vertical cliff, the tiny lion cub cries out pitifully for help.His mother arrives at the edge of the precipice with three other lionesses and a male. The females start to clamber down together but turn back daunted by the sheer drop.Eventually one single factor determines which of them will risk her life to save the youngster – motherly love.
The drama begins: The mother arrives at the edge of the cliff as her son cries out for rescue after being trapped when he slippedOn the brink: Four lionesses look over the edge before aborting their rescue mission because of the sheer dropSlowly, agonisingly, the big cat edges her way down towards her terrified son, using her powerful claws to grip the crumbling cliff side.One slip from her and both animals could end up dead at the bottom of the ravine.Just as the exhausted cub seems about to fall, his mother circles beneath him and he is snatched up in her jaws.She then begins the equally perilous journey back to the top. Minutes later, they arrive and she gives the frightened creature a consoling lick on the head.The dramatic rescue, captured by wildlife photographer Jean-Francois Largot, was played out in Kenya's Masai Mara game reserve.Despite the presence of wardens to deter poachers, day-to-day life for the lions is not without its dangers … as the cub learned the hard way.
Rescue mission: The mother inches her way down the cliff face to rescue the terrified cub before locking him in her jaws and making her way back up the cliff face
Motherly love: The mother gives her son a lick to say that all is well in the pride following the drama

Hi there grass.pg,
Would you be able to help on the homeless puppies. Appreciate that.
Good Day PASS team,
We have recently come across these family of 7 while doing volunteer work in Charis Old Folk's Home in Relau, Penang.
The home is a charity home and don't have the capacity to take care of the dogs.
They are not in a healthy living condition and don't have proper food.
We are urgently looking for adopters to take in the mother and 6 pups. The home can no longer afford to place the dogs there for fear of health problems with the elderly, and also funding to feed the dogs. They have to remove the dogs in a week or 2 from now.
Currently 2 pups (1 male 1 female) have been sent to Peng Aun Veterinary Penang and is boarding there for treatment because 1 has maggot infestion in an open wound and another has some skin problems.
We are now paying for the treatment, but we hope we can get some form of assistance to get medical treatment for them, to get them vaccinated, spayed and most importantly have them adopted by animal lovers
We appreciate if your society can provide us any form of assistance.
I can be contacted on this email or 0124029108.
Please help spread the word
The dogs are in Relau Charis Old Folk's Home.
A stray mother dog went there and gave birth to 6 pups. The folks in the home are temporarily taking care of them but being an old folk's home, they don't have the capacity to care for the puppies and mother dog for long.
They will put the dogs out on the streets by end of this week.
Please urgently help to seek genuine animal lovers who can foster or adopt these little friends.
Your kind deed is most appreciated.
Please contact me or Pauline Liong if you are interested
Urgent! Please forward out...
There are 6 puppies just arrived in this world for less than 2 months. If you wanna adopt them, please let me know or go to Relau Charis Home (Old Folks Home) directly.
Please help to forward out urgently to your friends who wants to adopt puppy cause' no one from Charis Home is able to take care of them & the person in charge is planning to throw them out to the street… ~~Sad~~

Recent research is demonstrating the various benefits of companion animals to people's well-being, personal growth, and quality of life.
In order to enable their presence and ensure the harmonious companionship of animals in our lives, owners, and governments both have duties and responsibilities.
IAHAIO members have adopted five fundamental resolutions at their General Assembly, held in Geneva on 5 September 1995. IAHAIO urges all international bodies concerned and all national governments to consider and activate the following resolutions.
There is much research now available to prove that companion animals can add to the Quality of Life of the humans to whom they may provide practical assistance or therapy.
IAHAIO members believe that those who train animals and deliver the service to others must ensure the Quality of Life of the animals involved. Programmes offering animal-assisted activities or animal-assisted therapy for the benefit of others should be governed by basic standards, regularly monitored, and be staffed by appropriately trained personnel.
IAHAIO members have therefore adopted four fundamental guidelines at their General Assembly held in Prague in September, 1998. IAHAIO urges all persons and organizations involved in animal-assisted activities and/or animal-assisted therapy, and all bodies governing the presence of such programmes in their facilities to consider and abide by the following points.
Organizations adhereing to the above four guidelines will be invited to join IAHAIO as Affiliate Members.
Given the strong evidence that has accumulated in recent years demonstrating the value, to children and juveniles. of social relationships with companion animals it is important that children be taught proper and safe behaviour towards those animals and the correct care, handling and treatment of the various companion animal species.
Realising that companion animals in school curricula encourage the moral, spiritual and personal development of each child, bring social benefits to the school community and enhance opportunities for learning in many different areas of the school curriculum, IAHAIO members have adopted fundamental guidelines on pets in schools at their General Assembly, held in Rio de Janeiro in September 2001.
IAHAIO urges all school authorities and teachers, as well as all persons and organisations involved in pet programmes for schools, to consider and abide by the following guidelines:
Any programme involving personal contact between children and companion animals must ensure:
a) that the animals involved are
safe (specially selected and/or trained),
healthy (as attested by a veterinarian),
prepared for the school environment (e.g. socialized to children, adjusted to travel in the case of visiting animals),
properly housed (either in the classroom or while at home), and
always under supervision of a knowledgeable adult (either the teacher or the owner);
b) that safety, health and feelings of each child in the class are respected.
Prior to the acquisition of classroom animals or visitation of the class by programme personnel with companion animals that meet the above criteria, both school authorities and parents must be informed and convinced of the value of such encounters.
Precise learning objectives must be defined and should include:
a) enhancement of knowledge and learning motivation in various areas of the school curriculum
b) encouragement of respect and of a sense of responsibility for other life forms
c) consideration of each child's expressive potential and involvement.
The safety and well-being of the animals involved must be guaranteed at all times.
Given the scientific and medical evidence proving the beneficial effects to human health and well being arising from interactions with companion animals, given the biological and psychological evidence for the innate affinity of humans to nature, including other living beings and natural settings, the members of the International Association of Human-Animal Interaction Organizations unanimously approved the following resolution and guidelines for action at the IAHAIO General Assembly held on October 5, 2007 in Tokyo, Japan.
It is a universal, natural and basic human right to benefit from the presence of animals.
Acknowledgement of this right has consequences requiring action in various spheres of legislation and regulation. IAHAIO urges all international bodies and national and local governments:
1. To enact housing regulations which allow the keeping of companion animals if they can be housed properly and cared for adequately, while respecting the interests of people not desiring direct contact with such animals;
2. To promote access of specially selected and trained, healthy, and clean animals to medical care facilities to participate in animal-assisted therapy and/or animal-assisted activities;
3. To recognize persons and animals adequately trained in and prepared for, animal-assisted therapy, animal-assisted activity and animal-assisted education;
4. To allow the presence of companion animals in care/residential centers for people of any age, who would benefit from that presence;
5. To promote the inclusion of companion animals in the school curricula according the “IAHAIO Rio Declaration on Pets in Schools“.
