Mufasa is a mountain lion who spent almost 20 years in captivity as a Peruvian circus animal. He was tied up most of his life in the back of a vehicle. But after all those years of imprisonment, this gorgeous animal is finally free. Peru banned wild animals in circuses, but most of the circuses disobeyed the law. Animal Defenders International (ADI) stepped in and tracked all these circuses down.
When the last circus was cornered, even the riot police were called for aid. Many wild animals got a second chance at life and Mufasa was the last to be cut free from his chains. This beautiful mountain lion was returned to the forests after spending his life in the back of circus pick-up truck for 20 long years.
According to the new update on Mufasa, he now enjoys the sights and sounds of the Amazon forest, within a secure ADI natural habitat where the rescuers can continue to provide him with the specialist care he needs. After being in captivity, it’s likely he doesn’t know all there is to know about being a truly wild mountain lion, so they keep a watchful eye on him.
This organization is doing great things for these wild animals who never should have been captured and trained in the first place. Humans can find lots of ways to entertain themselves without watching wild animals perform unnatural and stupid tricks.
