    Ben Britton of Wild Animal Encounters is hand-raising three lion cubs: No Cookies | dailytelegraph.com.au

    Anyone know where the mother if the cubs is likely from (Bullens?)?

    Website of Ben Britton's business Wild Animal Encounters: Wild Animal Encounters - Unique Wildlife Displays

    The cubs have probably been bred for his "Private Animal Encounters" at a "private zoo in Western Sydney" which features "African cats, primates, reptiles and more". Even more interesting is the school serval display!

    How many "private zoos" in Western Sydney are there then? You could only assume that they came from the Bullens one, yes?
