This cute leopard cub is nursed back to health with the help of a stuffed animal.
Two-month-old orphan Simba was starving when she was found by animal welfare workers.
But after a year of being snuggled up to the stuffed animal and bottle-fed by Wildlife SOS volunteers, Simba is now perfectly healthy – and has also learned to climb trees.
Kartick Satyanarayan, CEO of the charity, said: “Our team has worked tirelessly to save Simba. That
Toys served as a source of comfort.”

Kartick believes Simba, who now lives at Manikdoh Leopard Rescue Center in Junnar, India, may have been left to his own devices after his mother died when she fell into an open well.
The little leopard has now become the face of a campaign to help save other animals from a similar fate.
So far, Wildlife SOS has rescued more than 40 other leopards.
