Another Lion Rescue by ADI

Hello All,

For those of you who have been following my "Work In Progress" on Simba the lion, I thought I would share a wonderful video with you!!

I just got an email from Lisa, at Animal Defenders International (ADI) and they have recently rescued several other Lions from the Bolivian Circus!  This video shows Pancho, Temuco, Chitara, Delila and Kenya all being released in their new 20 acre habitat.  It is unbelievable, that up till now, these lions lived in a cage no larger than a bed for all of their lives.  It is so incredible to watch them in this video romp and play after being released to their new habitat in Colorado.

ADI is an incredible organization who are doing incredible things for these captive animals.  Enjoy the video of Pancho, Temuco, Chitara, Delila and Kenya in their new habitats.


  1. Such handsome animals - how lovely to see them being returned to some sort of 'normality' - I loved the first section with Pancho/Temuco playing in the water.

  2. Hi Sue.... Yeah, that's my favorite part too.

  3. This is just great. Can you imagine being given freedom after so many years? How wonderful to be able to do this for them. What a great organization.

  4. Yeah Linda they really are a great organization. It's so nice to see someone being an advocate for these animals and it's so great to see them finally have space and play.
