Operation Lion Ark: Releasing the Lions

26 May

Pancho, Temuco, Chitara, Delila and Kenya are released into their huge 20 acre enclosure.

They are the second pride to be released, after the family of eight lions were moved into their own enclosure in April.

Rescued from a tiny circus cage in Bolivia following ADI’s record-breaking Operation Lion Ark, they have never known anything like this.  With your help, we can bring this happiness to many more animals.

Thank you.

      Gracias a Uds, hermanos bolivianos, por este maravilloso triunfo. A ver si la Argentina se pone en marcha ahora para abolir la tortura de los circos. Es hora, ya. –Saludos. ____________________________________________________

    A thought… In Genesis, the first book of the Bible, when God gave Adam dominion over the birds of the air, the animals, the fish, etc., do you think he meant total control as to destroy at will as well? No he did not, in Aramaic this word “domain” actually means “the responsibility for the care of all of his Creation” (GOD).

    Dear ADI
    I have just watched video in which Pancho, Temuco, Chitara, Dalila and Kenya released into their 20 acres ground. It is very nice, and I am happy.

    The UK govt came forward to ban Elephants and Big cats in circuses. It is small success of ADI. In fact animals are not want to be see by people as they are very danger always to them

    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I cried tears of joy watching this. May these furry angels live the rest of their lives in at least some peace now. The cruelty that humans are capable of for money is just incredulous and leaves you with a feeling of despair and hopelessness at what can be done to prevent it. But it’s incredible acts like this that can restore a sense of hope and optimism! People like yourselves are angels on this planet.

    Rescue animals from small cages is a great think and looking after them in safe place which wide area with trees and some artificial water falls is adventure. Thank you ADI for their out standing rescue work.
