Staff at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya in Africa called veterinarian Michael Ngatho Njoroge of the Kenyan Wildlife Service on an urgent matter. Siena, a lioness, was clinging to life after having been gouged by a buffalo's horn. The result was a gaping wound;11-year-old Siena's flesh dangled from her body.

Njoroge and his team spent 90 minutes working on the lioness at the Maasai Mara National Reserve, adminstering antibiotics and treating the wound.

Thanks to the veterinary team's efforts, Siena is now back with her pride, which includes her cubs.
