Jazz, Shazam, and Sheila, white lions seized from a Kaufman County wildlife exhibitor, are adjusting to their new home at In-Sync Exotics in Wylie. It’s probably going to take awhile, since they arrived there on Friday with pressure sores from lying in one spot, and so malnourished they have trouble eating or even keeping their heads up. “I’d call this probably the worst I’ve gotten,” Vicky Keahey, who runs In-Sync, says. But, she adds, at least they’re not scared of their new surroundings:
“With them, it’ll be an issue of getting healthy. Not being fed and [being] neglected leads to other problems.”
There is one bright spot for Keahey. At least she didn’t have to take in this White Lion.
