The Bolivian Lion Rescue Diary

1 Nov

The highs and lows of the lion rescue as it happened, from start to finish – updated with more video footage.

These animals are the first to be freed from circuses after Bolivia banned animal circuses – a ban due to come into effect next month. For ADI, who have rescued animals all over the world, it has been one of the most challenging rescue operations ever.

    My congratulations to Bolivia Government for being the first to ban live animals for entertaintment. They will finally get to live a life of freedom. Why can’t the rest of the world follow suit.

    This was a massive undertaking to enable this group of people to pull of such a spectacular feat. Thank you to all at ADI, and especially Bob Barker. I am quit sure that without his help and funding this would never had been able to happen. It is so nice to see how well all of the animals were treated, and how happy they are in their new homes.

    Thank you all so much for the rescue of these magnificant lions. All the hard work, incredible organization and calmness which seemed to take place during the rescue and transport was awe inspiring to watch. Now if only the U.S. would ban the use of all animals for human entertainment and profit, including dog and horse racing, rodeos, sport hunting, SeaWorld, etc. Conservation and education programs to save endangered species…yes. We all have the obligation to rescue abused and mistreated animals around the world. The ADI Organization has my donation and I’ll be happy to pass the word on. Saving Gods creatures great and small, you are angels. Thank you.

      I do not know that Dog/Horse racing too includes violence of animals. People who put animals in small cages will be prosecuted. First People should be vegetarian. civilizations includes vegetara\iansim. If Dogs/Horse have been suffering in races/ competitions. It should be ban; I will support ADI as no other organisation of Animals works as sincere as ADI.
