Bolivian courts recently ruled it illegal for circuses in that country to hold hostage any performing animals. As a result, four lions were releaeed into a natural setting refuge center run by PAWS (Performing Animals Welfare Society.)
These lions had been living in rusted cages hauled about in the back of a truck. They had never in their lives felt grass under their feet.
Each time I watch these videos, I cry. I cry from the joy of seeing this happen and from the sadness of knowing there are so many other performing animals who are yet to be rescued.
