The mother of David and sister, Rapunzel, reportedly died after giving birth in her circus cage. When ADI tracked down the circus, we found David, Rapunzel and father Muneco living in a cage about the size of a double bed.


Before our team could move in, the circus disappeared into a remote jungle area of Peru. Muneco died. When the circus emerged, the ADI team moved in and rescued David and Rapunzel, with the circus announcing it would go completely animal free. The two lions are very close and sleep up against each other every night.
