The African lioness named Queen has given birth to five healthy cubs. Lions normally have litters of two or three cubs.
Owner Malik Fazal Abbas said he has had 4-year-old Queen since she was 2 months old. She mated with a male lion that Abbas also keeps at his home in the city of Multan.
Abbas, who is a cotton and mango grower, says he has a license from the Pakistani Wildlife Department to keep lions as pets.
There are other cases of wildlife kept as pets in Pakistan. The tiger is a symbol of the ruling party of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and some supporters keep tigers that they bring out during election campaigns.
