This will break your heart, an Will the ex-circus Lion, freed from his cage feels the earth beneath his paws for the first time
Will had been forced to preform in a travelling circus in Brazil for 13 years before being rescued and taken to a sanctuary.
I’m not keen on circuses or zoos for that matter, so it’s great to see how he clearly enjoys feeling the earth under his paws![youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxOInRU4vT4[/youtube]
Prior to being rescued and taken to the sanctuary, Will had been forced to perform with a traveling circus. For 13 long years, the lion had been confined to a cramped cage and denied any semblance of a normal existence. Within seconds of his release, Will can be seen eagerly running his paws through the soft soil — tragically, a foreign material for a creature who, up until then, had known only cold metal floors.
