Veterinarian Nicki Grint usually performs acupuncture on dogs, but she’s been using the ancient Chinese practice to treat a bigger beast at the Paignton Zoo in Devon, England.  Lucifer, a 419-pound Asiatic lion, had a tumor removed from his right hind paw before he was recently transferred from the London Zoo to Paignton. (He was born in captivity at the U.K.’s Cotswold Wildlife Park in 2002.) His wound from the procedure wasn’t healing, so his keepers at the Devon facility took an unconventional approach.
