Just ask Kiara and her daughter Mahla, who are now loving their new home at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in their native Africa.
Back in Peru, mum Kiara was cruelly torn away from Mahla and her son Scarc by their circus handlers during a confrontational rescue. Kiara had cried for her babies every day they were apart.
ADI returned to the circus with armed police and SWAT teams to seize Scarc, Mahla, and another lion, Smith – and as you can see, the family are overjoyed to be back in each other’s paws!
Fancy adopting these cuddly lionesses?
