Aware Trust Zimbabwe gets an alarming call—apparently, there's a frantic lion snared just outside a busy village! Keeping their distance from the angry, scared growls coming somewhere from in the brush, wary rescuers fire tranquilizing darts blindly at the hidden lion. Even though it's a bullseye, the loud excited crowd keeps the groggy lion dangerously awake. Can the rescue team free the half-conscious beast and load him onto a truck for medical care before he completely wakes up?
