Lion That Was Caged For 13 Years Feels Grass And Dirt For First Time

By : Sam Ridgway |



I don’t know a great deal about this Lion’s story, but what I do know is that he was imprisoned as a circus act for 13 years and that his home was a metal cage.

The following video shows the moment he was finally given a second chance, and released into a sanctuary, free from his imprisonment and a tiny cage that he called home for the majority of his life.

No animal should be used as a circus act, and it’s videos like this that prove how inhumane it is. Watch as the handsome lad finally feels grass and dirt for the first time. It brought the feels.
