Circus Cat Chained To The Back Of A Truck For 20 Years Finally Tastes Freedom

For the last 20 years, Mufasa the mountain lion has been chained in the back of an old truck and used as an act in a traveling circus. During a raid earlier this year, wildlife officials and Animal Defenders International (ADI) rescued Mufasa and took him to ADI’s Spirit of Freedom rescue centre. After being nursed back to health, Mufasa, who’s unreleasbale, was taken to his forever home on the edge of the Tambopata reserve in the Amazon rainforest. These are Mufasa’s first steps of freedom.
