Lion trapped in truck, locked up for 20 years – When they cut his chains, he can hardly believe its “freedom”

This poor mountain lion named, Mufasa, was held captive by a Peruvian traveling circus for 20 years. During that time, he was kept locked in a pickup truck. Sadly, this isn’t uncommon behavior for circuses.

Thank goodness The Animal Defenders International finally found and saved him! The lion was freed into the wild and can now live life the way it was intended – free. Watch to the end to see this amazing rescue and release!

You have to see the lion’s reaction when they cut his chains… Just watch the video!

He was so brave… This brought tears to my eyes – Rescues like this are worth seeing more than once, especially with a beautiful ending like this.
