NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Staff at a zoo in central China took action after a lion's paw began bleeding.
A lion named Lele began limping and one of its paws was bleeding.
Turns out one of the lion's nails had grown so long that it had curled inward and grown back into one of its pads.
The lion was tranquilized and then zookeepers began trimming the lion's nails, afterwards disinfectant was applied to the affected paw.
Staff members believe the lion will recuperate in a week.
