Grass Under His Feet

The Rachos dos Gnomos animal sanctuary in Brazil released a video last week that showed the first moments of a former circus Lion exiting his tiny cramped metal cage and feeling the grass under his feet for the first time in his life.

The Lion named Will had spent 13 years in a cage traveling around forced to perform in a circus.

Will can be seen in what can only be described as a true state of joy as he rolls around, scrapes the dirt and relishes in freedom. I don’t think anyone can deny he is fully aware of his surroundings and new life. A Lion like Will who was born into captivity, suffered both physical and emotional trauma could never be released back into the wild, but this sanctuary would give him the next best thing for the remaining 5 years of his life.
