Europe does not have any lions except as statues (or in the zoos), where they are common as symbols of power of kings. The lions in today's images are from Italy, France and Austria.

यूरोप में कहीं शेर नहीं बचे केवल मूर्तियों को छोड़ कर (या चिड़ियाघरों में), जहाँ राजसीय ताकत के प्रतीक के रूप में अक्सर दिखते हैं. आज की तस्वीरों के शेर इटली, फ्राँस व ऑस्ट्रिया से हैं.

Europa non ha più i leoni se non come statue (e negli zoo), dove si trovano spesso come simboli del potere dei re. I leoni nelle immagini di oggi sono da Italia, Francia e Austria.



  1. India is facing tough time saving wild animals & controlling human population. Encroachments of jungles is increasing. In last three months three incidents were reported * Leopard entered Meerut Cantt schools closed in that area for two days but was never caught* Leopard entered Lakhimpur & * Leopard entered Bijnor & beaten to death by villagers with sticks. If things persist we shall also see the wild animals in statues & zoos.

    1. You are right Harsh Wardhan. Europeans had another mentality and here the wild animals were almost elimited in the past centuries. However, with better standards of life, people became more aware of environment and today Europe has very strong ideas of protecting wild habitats. In India and other countries, the conflict between humans and animals is also a conflict of poverty and competition for the scarce resources.
