Meet Leo. The former circus lion has suffered a lot of grief and suffering in his life, but now that he has been rescued, everything has changed. Surrounded by care and affection, the old lion has blossomed and given free rein to his inner kitten. Leo and 32 other lions were rescued from various circuses in South Africa where the animals had been mistreated.
“When we rescued Leo from the circus, he seemed so sad and broken,” ADI wrote on Facebook, “but in ADI’s care he has absolutely blossomed.”
ADI had a surprise for the rescued lions for Easter. Leo was very excited when he received his gift!
The gift was filled with hay, spices, clove water, egg crates and balls of rope, ADI wrote on Facebook. It seemed like nothing special, but it made Leo feel like a kitten again!
