After 13 Years in a Cage, Lion Relishes the Feel of Grass

It’s a bittersweet story. This lion spent 13 years in a circus, confined to a cage too small for an animal this size. He was confiscated and taken to Rancho dos Gnomos sanctuary in Brazil, where he has a much larger enclosure.

It’s not the savannah, but it has room to run, grass to roll in, dirt to dig in, and trees to rub against. You can almost feel the joy when he realizes what a great place this is -compared to what he had. -via Boing Boing
