Someone left a little lion cub locked in a cage in the middle of a field. We need to make sure authorities find that someone!
When a jogger found him, the cub was so distressed that his nose was all cut up from trying to escape. Lions don’t belong in captivity, especially not in conditions like these.
Please sign the petition now to demand that local authorities find out who abandoned this lion cub and charge them with wild animal trafficking.
While the story thankfully ends well for this little lion, who is now living in a sanctuary, one big problem remains. Who procured a lion and then abandoned him?
There is some speculation that the lion had been smuggled in from another country by an illegal breeder or a circus. If that’s the case, this could be a huge clue to finding international traffickers and punishing them. We have to be sure the authorities take this crime seriously so that the wildlife trafficking ends here.
Please sign the petition to keep the pressure on!
