Cameron the lion and Zabu the tiger were rescued from a rundown roadside zoo. Keepers tried to breed them in the hope of selling 'liger 'cubs.

They were saved by Big Cat rescue, a sanctuary in Florida.

Cameron weighed just 200lb due to starvation at the zoo. He was very possessive over Zabu, so they spayed and neutered the big cats.

Big Cat Rescue is a true lifesaver and is home to more than 800 big cats.
