Bachelor lion in Paraguay 'welcomes visitors'

Help

A sole male lion at a zoo in Paraguay has had some welcome new visitors from a travelling circus.

The only African lion at Asuncion Zoo, Rubio, has been alone for years but now six circus lionesses are temporarily lodging at the zoo while their paperwork is reviewed by Argentine customs.

The director of the zoo, Emerson Aguilar, said he hoped Rubio would finally find a partner.
