A very touching story happened in a national park in Kenya. In order to help a wild lioness, the caretakers had to sedate her. But the lion, who was nearby, seeing the tranquilizer dart in his beloved, rushed to help her. It cost the veterinarians a lot of effort to drive this protector away.

During an inspection the vets discovered that the lioness had a wound on her leg which must have been inflicted during the last hunt. To treat the leg, the lioness had to be sedated by shooting her with a tranquilizer dart. But the caretakers faced an unexpected problem. The young lion, walking with the lioness, started pulling darts out of his weakening girlfriend in an attempt to help her.
