After 20 years of being forced to perform for a Peruvian circus, Mufasa the mountain lion was set free from his chains.
In Peru, wild animals in circuses are banned. However, most circuses did not follow through with the law when it was implemented, and instead kept wild animals in their act.
This was the case of poor Mufasa, who traveled chained to a truck.Animal Defenders International (ADI) was not one to stand for this kind of behavior. Showing incredible resolve, ADI tracked down each animal one by one and rescued them from their captivity.
