Photos of the Day: June 7, 2012

Two-month-old lion cubs are seen on June 7,2012 in a quarantine room of the Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) headquarters in Nairobi, following their rescue by the wildlife rangers who were forced to shoot dead the cubs' mother after it was spotted in Nairobi's Karen suburb and it charged before it could be darted. Conservations warn of the growing likelihood of closer interaction between wildlife and humans if development is not managed in a sustainable manner.
