Dozens of lions rescued from deplorable conditions are starting over. Rescuers say some have missing teeth others with no claws came from a life within the circus.
The lions were saved from their cages during a mission to help enforce bans on wild animal acts in South America. The 18-month operation reportedly raided every circus and rescued more than 100 animals.
The lions were sent on a flight to South Africa where they’re relocated to a protected sanctuary.
