Lion Hysterectomy

EPISODE SYNOPSIS

We took our cameras into the field recently to film an innovative surgery on a lioness: a hysterectomy. Lion populations in small game reserves need to be closely regulated – but how do you manage this without upsetting the natural balance or resorting to culling? Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa is solving this problem by performing partial hysterectomies on female lions.
