Sick Gazan lioness finds new home in West Bank

A lioness in the zoo in the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah is moved today to a zoo in the West Bank city of Tulkarem.

According to Israel Radio, Palestinian officials asked for Israel’s assistance in the move, which requires transporting the animal through the Erez crossing between Gaza and Israel, and through Israeli territory.

The eight-year-old, 200-kilogram (441-pound) lioness is sick, officials say, noting that the Tulkarem zoo is better equipped to care for her.
