Hope For Paralysed Lion After Facebook Plea





12:09pm UK, Thursday July 14, 2011
A lion suffering from paralysis in all four of its legs could walk again after Facebook users donated thousands of pounds to help pay for his treatment.





Ariel can only lie on a mattress, his limbs supported by toilet rolls

Ariel, who is three years old, suffers from a degenerative disease, similar to multiple sclerosis, which causes his immune system to attack itself.
The condition has left him unable to use his legs and he is only able to lie on a mattress, his limbs supported by packs of toilet rolls.
Vet Livia Pereira is currently caring for the lion at her home in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with the help of the creature's owner Raquel Borges.
However, an internet and Facebook campaign originally set up to inform people of Ariel's progress is now helping to pay his £7,135 monthly medical bill.
It has brought in so much money, it could also pay for life-changing treatment.
Ms Pereira and Ms Borges said they had received an offer from a Brazilian doctor to perform the blood-cleansing treatment plasmapheresis on Ariel.
Israeli veterinary neurologists also flew to Brazil to perform extensive tests on the creature, a trip paid for by donations.

Ms Borges said: "When the Facebook campaign began in May, we had less than five followers, because it was designed to inform people of Ariel's case, not to ask for help.
"But then we started asking for donations and the number of people following Ariel's case soared."
She said Ariel was born in the shelter she and her husband run in the southern city of Maringa, where they care for sick or abandoned animals.
"He was a perfectly normal and docile lion that slept with me until he was 10 months old," Ms Borges said.
But last year Ariel started limping and within days he was unable to move his two hind legs. After surgery to remove a herniated disc he was unable to move his front legs.
"He was submitted to a battery of tests and medical examinations that failed to show what was wrong with him, so three weeks ago we brought him to Sao Paulo where there are better-equipped veterinary clinics," Ms Borges said.
"One thing we will never lose is our hope that Ariel will recover and start walking again," she added.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
