Abused lions en route to new home

Abused lions en route to new home
8:55 AM Sunday Nov 9, 2014

Heartbreaking photographs have emerged of a group of badly abused lions rescued from a circus in Peru as they await their move to a safe animal shelter in America.

One of the lions had been so badly hurt while owned by the circus in Chiclayo, in southern America, that it was missing one of its eyes.

The animals are now en route to their new home at the Wildlife Animal Sanctuary in Denver, Colorado, that offers the US's best habitat for large carnivores.

The shelter is also home to various breeds of tiger, as well as varieties of wolves, black and grizzly bears, leopards, lynxes and bobcats.

1. Here I am outside just outside of Denver...

And I didn't even know about this sanctuary. It's just so horrible to see cats in cages. I'm making a donation. Thanks for the information, Judi Lynn.
