So nice to have a happy ending. 🙂
This post is dedicated to two Lion cubs, George and Yame and the compassionate humans who took them on an extraordinary journey to safety.

Made to perform in a travelling circus in Europe, George and Yame had a miserable start to life.
Things worsened when they were sold to a Spanish woman who ran a theme park, Terra Mitica Park, Alicante. Tourists paid 10 euros to pose with these lion cubs.
It is reported that, in order to keep the cubs small and easy for tourists to handle, they were fed watered down milk to stunt their growth.
This meant a prolonged and agonising death for George and Yame.
It was a fortunate day for the cubs when American CJ Munoz and her Spanish husband Luis rescued and helped nurse George and Yame back to health in Madrid.
