This very unfortunate lion called Mufasa was trapped in the back of a pickup truck for 20 years. He was a part of a traveling circus in Peru. The circus lion was having a really tough time being caged and forced to live such a sad life. People are not aware in what conditions these animals live nor how horrible their training is. They are constantly locked away in cages and whipped in order to learn that new trick.
However, in 2015 the Animal Defenders International finally rescued the poor Mountain lion. The organization was working hard trying to shut down the Peruvian circus when they found him. Luckily he is now able to live the rest of his days in the wild. He can enjoy hunting and having a normal life that he truly deserves.
Do you think these animals deserve a better life?
