Rocket Attack Causes Injury to Lioness in Zoo near Kyiv

In a tragic incident resulting from a rocket attack carried out by Russian forces on January 2, the lioness named Yuna, residing at the Wildlife Rescue Center near Kyiv, suffered severe injuries.

Debris from a downed missile fell approximately 300 meters from the lioness’s enclosure, causing a serious concussion and complete loss of coordination, according to the center. “After reviewing the surveillance camera footage, we can confirm that this was not a typical injury, as Yuna did not have a chance to defend herself. She is currently undergoing the necessary treatment, and we remain hopeful for her recovery,” stated the center authorities.

As of 4:00 PM, the mass rocket attack on Kyiv on January 2 resulted in the unfortunate loss of two lives and left 49 people injured.
