523 lions and one voter live in Gir forest. This is how he casts his ballot

20 May

There are lions in India. At least 523 of them, according to the 2015 census, though unofficial counts put the number north of 600.

Unlike their more glamorous tiger cousins, who live across the country in natural reserves, the Asiatic lions are all concentrated in one location: Gir forest, a large savannah-like setting in the Junagadh district of Gujarat. They live there, protected by wildlife laws and hopefully multiplying, with hundreds of leopards—which are far more ferocious, and dangerous to humans—and a much rarer species: A lone specimen of Indian election voter.
