Animals, like all living creatures, need to stay in their natural habitat.
These creatures thrive best in a familiar environment, whether it be land, water, or air. They get the best food for their health and growth, and they are at the right temperature to keep them safe and healthy. If they are in known territories, it also coincides with their knowledge of their predators and kicks in their survival instincts.However, this is not true for many animals all over the world.
Many animals are caged and bred in captivity. You see most of them in zoos, amusement parks, or aquariums. Others keep them as pets even if they are meant to be free in the wild. And when humans do this to animals, humans, too, should take action to bring them back to where they belong.
Angela, Bellone, Saïda, and Louga were born and bred in captivity. They spent their whole lives going around France and performing for a circus company. They were forced to perform and do tricks in front of loud, noisy crowds.
They are cramped up in cages as the circus moves from one place to another. Who knows what they were fed, but we bet they didn’t get the best nutrition either.
The foundation started to raise funds to transport these lions back to South Africa. Other animal welfare foundations and partners, like Lazy Lions, gave specialized care for these big cats.
