Leaving them be is the greatest gift we can give them
This lion did not deserve such mi.stre.atment; fortunately, he was saved!
This 20-year-old Mufasa lion has almost spent his entire life at the disposal of others and has been kept in cap.tiv.ity. He is a powerful mountain lion, but he had to travel through Peruvian cities in an old truck known as the “road circus”!
It’s a [ter.ri.ble] sensation for anyone. Animals experience similar emotions when they are forced to live in one place their entire lives and do things they despise just to entertain people.
If an animal is “interesting” or “cool,” that doesn’t mean it should spend its entire life entertaining people!
Many animals are forced to live in small cages as if they were [im.pris.oned and st.ar.ved]; they deserve a life of freedom, to return to the wild and be with their family and herd!
That seemed impossible for Mufasa, but in 2015, Animal Defenders International rescued the mountain lion. They found him while working to close down the Peruvian circus where he had been performing.
Mufasa’s release from his sh.ac.kles and return to nature was truly moving; he had finally been given the opportunity to live his life as he desired. – Hope that no more animals will have to live in captivity, all animals deserve to be free!
