Wild Animal Sanctuary prepares to welcome 33 new lions
33 lions which were earlier this year captured and rescued by Peruvian authorities from a number of illegal circuses in Peru will be taken in by the Wild Animal Sanctuary which has been working day and night to ensure that the arrival of the 33 wild animals will go down with no incidence whatsoever.
Pat Graig, who has been running the Wild Animal Sanctuary for 35 years now, is taking a task that he considers as the most challenging to date in his time at the sanctuary.
The sanctuary which has been located in a quiet town of Keenesburg, has been given the task of ensuring that all the 33 wild animals have been transported safely from Peru and that when they arrive they will have ready built habitats that are suited for them.
If the whole process of transferring the lions is successful, the sanctuary will have 93 lions which call it home.
There has been an increase in the number of nations which are banning the use of lions in circuses and Peru recently also banned the same activity.
Currently, the Wild Animal Sanctuary is building a fence that spreads on an area that is about 100 acres that will be divided into 10 separate habitats for the 33 lions.
In the past few months, dentist from the sanctuary have been making trips to Peru so as to ensure that the teeth’s of the lions are well fixed. That said the sanctuary has also put in place a number of veterinarians who will be ready for the lions once they arrive t the sanctuary so as to ensure that everything is okay with them.
