Dream ending for circus lions

33 lions rescued from 10 circuses in Peru and Colombia are going home Africa in the biggest ever airlift of its kind.   

The lions, who were rescued by Animal Defenders International (ADI) after enduring years of terrible treatment, will be heading on their way to huge natural enclosures at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa.

The airlift, which is due to take place in October, will be the culmination of ADI’s work with the Governments of Peru and Colombia to eliminate the use of wild animals in circuses.
