The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa is home to many incredible beasts. But one lion in particular has a strong connection with Richardson, a.k.a. “The Lion Whisperer.”
Because of a huge dental issue, Aslan – the white male lion – had changed into a much unhappier cat, according to Richardson. So, when Fixodent offered to come in and help with the necessary surgery, Kevin was delighted.
The operation took over six hours to complete, more extensive and severe than they had imagined. With all of the complications, however, everyone agreed that Aslan would come out on the other side so much happier.
After his stay in recovery, Aslan was finally introduced back into the preserve with the rest of his pack and his reception was amazing!
