Love is a truly amazing thing, even in the animal kingdom! 

Sheila, a gorgeous lioness, was rescued from a terrible situation and was close to death. 


The female lion had been used as a prop for birthday parties and events, and was extremely malnourished and miss-treated. 

When she was rescued by In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue, Sheila was unable to eat, and spent most of her day either vomiting or trying to sleep. 


Once she was back on her paws, the young lioness was introduced to Khan, who was rescued from a very similar situation months previous.

Needless to say, it was love at first sight! 


The loved-up lions have lived together in the same enclosure ever since, and are clearly the best of friends. 

Sheila has made a full recovery, and now lives a happy and healthy life with her "husband" Khan. 

Everybody say 'awwwww'! 

The man who abused Sheila has had his licence revoked, and is no longer allowed to own wild animals. 



Ah, like many of us, Ariel Winter has caught the tattoo bug, and now's she's onto her fourth inking in only seven months.

The actress showed off her new art in Hollywood hotspot, the Nice Guy nightclub, and we absolutely love it.

Sweeping her hair over her shoulders, a lion's head tattoo was revealed on the top of her back. 

Ariel opted for a black and white realist sketch which seems to be her favourite look in tattoo design.

The Modern Family star was certainly out to impress on the night too, as she wore a plunging white dress, with peplum detail around her waist and topped it all off with a sexy, vampy make-up look.

Slay, girl.

He was controversially denied the coveted Star Baker title – despite constructing an INCREDIBLE lion entirely from bread.

However, Great British Bake Off's Paul Jagger, 49, has at least achieved another great honour: he's sparked waves of online memes and tributes which affectionately nod to his delicious show-stopper. 

The prison worker's feline was created using a white bread head, a wholemeal tail, and a body filled with figs and walnuts.

Even the notoriously grumpy Paul Hollywood couldn't help but be blown away: the judge declared the lion to be "one of the best things I've seen in bread – ever!"

Mr Jagger was subsequently given a "special commendation," – with GBBO presenter Sue Perkins explaining that the honour was being bestowed because Mr Hollywood "has never ever in his life seen a bread sculpture as magnificent as that one".

Still, Paul was ultimately pipped to the Star Baker post by rival Ian Cumming – a decision which caused countless viewers to take to the likes of Twitter to vent their frustration. 

With a full six days to go until next week's episode, and in order to pay our respects to Paul's magnificent lion, SHEmazing! has decided to round up the very best online responses to the great Great British Bake Off lion…
















In the face of an international backlash – fuelled by celebrity input – American Walter J Palmer has hired a PR firm. 

The dentist controversially killed Cecil the lion – one of Africa's most famous big cats and the star attraction at Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park – around three weeks ago. 

He paid €45,000 to shoot the animal with a crossbow, later leaving him skinned and headless on the outskirts of the park after posing up proudly for photographs with his body.

And it has now been revealed that the medic has gone into hiding. He has received numerous death threats since news of the lion's slaughter first emerged earlier this week.

Indeed, he has employed Austin & Associates, a public relations firm based in Ohio, to handle to controversy. 

In a statement – the first time he has spoken publicly on the matter – Dr Palmer claimed: “In early July, I was in Zimbabwe on a bow hunting trip for big game.

"I hired several professional guides and they secured all proper permits. To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted.”

“I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favourite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt,” he continued.

“I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt. I have not been contacted by authorities in Zimbabwe or in the US about this situation, but will assist them in any inquiries they may have.

Again, I deeply regret that my pursuit of an activity I love and practice responsibly and legally resulted in the taking of this lion.”

His Minneapolis dental surgery has since been forced to close. Activists have also left flowers, cards, and stuffed toys – in particular lions – at his place of work and his home.

Some have also dressed as 'dentist hunters' – armed with water-guns and wearing lion masks.

Cara Delevingne, and Ricky Gervais, as well as models Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel – who hail from Namibia and South Africa respectively – are just some of the celebrities who have take to social media to criticise Dr Palmer's actions. 

In an emotional appeal, American television host Jimmy Kimmel also asked viewers to donate to the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit in retaliation. 

And Peta said on its Twitter account that he should be "extradited, charged and, preferably, hanged," for his actions. 

Yesterday, Emmanuel Fundira, the president of the Safari Operators Association of Zimbabwe, confirmed at a news conference that Dr Palmer is wanted for the death of Cecil.

The Zimbabwean authorities are acting fast too: Dr Palmer's hunting colleagues, Zimbabwean Theo Bronkhorst and local landowner Honest Ndlovu are due to appear in court today on poaching charges.

If convicted, the men face up to 15 years in prison.  



The ripped look is back, and what better way to guarantee that you’re on trend than with a pair of “Designed by Tiger” jeans.

A Japanese designer came up with the idea of getting bears, tiger and lions to rip up denim material in order to create the customised look.

Zoo volunteers wrap denim material around car tyres and rubber balls and throw them into the animal’s enclosure.

The tigers, lions and bears chew, claw and tear the fabric which is then retrieved and sewn into jeans.

Three pairs have been made so far and has already attracted several bids, with some being priced at $1200.

It might be expensive but it’s all for a good cause, as all money raised from the jean venture will be given to the animals at Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City.
