In whats being called the largest-ever lion airlift, 33 lions rescued from circuses in Peru and Colombia are being flown to a sanctuary in South Africa.
The flight is scheduled to take off in the early hours ofFriday, April 29. The nine Columbian lions will be collected from the capital, Bogota, on a cargo aircraft, which will then pick up the remaining 24 lions from Lima before flying to Johannesburg. The lions will then be taken by land to the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa.
Over the next fewmonths, the sanctuary will expand the size of their environment and gradually introduce them to each other to ensure the shock of the new home isnt too much.
The rescue and flight arepart of an initiative by Animal Defenders International (ADI), who have lobbiedto ban the use of wild animals in circuses in Peru and Colombia.Twenty-four of the lions were rescued through raids in Peru, while the remaining ninewere voluntarily given up by circuses in Columbia. Nearly all of the lions, however, have suffered. Some havehad their claws removed, many have brokenteeth, one has lost an eye, and another is almost totally blind.
Jan Creamer, the president of ADI, said in astatement: These lions have endured hell on Earth and now they are heading home to paradise. This is the world for which nature intended these animals for.It is the perfect ending to ADIs operation which has eliminated circus suffering in another country.”

Dogs and cats are supposedly natural enemies, so the last thing you’d expect to see is a dog playing with a very big cat. But that’s exactly what happens here in this scene from South Africa where a dog plays with two lions. The video is from February, but just went viral now.

The cameraman assumed it was all over when he saw a pack of fourteen lions attack a young elephant. Lions can take down a fully grown elephant when they are really hungry, so it seemed the little guy didn’t stand a chance. But amazingly, he never gave up. Finally, after apparently realizing that cats hate water, the elephant ran into the watering hole until he created space between him and the cats.
