Lions are majestical and powerful creatures, so seeing them in captivity is always such a sad thing. Especially when they’re in a circus and don’t even have grass to roam on. These two lions endured 8 long years without grass, before the special moment when they finally touched grass was caught on video.
Luckily, the animal advocates became aware of this and organized an operation to save them.When the big moment came, it was almost like Tarzan and Tanya didn’t even know what to do. Little did they know, they hadn’t even got to the good part but first they would have to get back to good health.
Fortunately, after years of deprivation and hardship, Tanya and Tarzan were eventually taken to a rehabilitation center and then taken to a sanctuary in South Africa, where living conditions are as close to natural as possible.
