Samson the lion cub pays CBS 3 a visit Thursday

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

The Forest Park Zoo in Springfield is babysitting Sampson, a lion cub on loan in our community.

Sampson and his handlers came by the CBS 3 Studios for a visit Thursday and gave Sampson a field trip downtown.

He'll be here in Western Massachusetts for the next six months for families to come visit, though the zoo is hoping he might become a permanent member of the family.  

The zoo needs to raise about $250,000 to make him a permanent resident. The money will pay for a proper enclosure to help Sampson grow big and strong.  

To find out more about the zoo's plans, visit www.forestparkzoo.org.
