A video from Amreli, Gujarat, has gone viral on social media in which a pride of fourteen lions can be seen quenching their thirst from a man-made water pond. The water body is situated around 20km from the Gir sanctuary. Once a rare sight, spotting a lion pride has now become common in recent times. A recent internal count conducted by the forest department shows that the population of these big cats in Gujarat is at a healthy figure of 700.
