Thirty-three lions rescued from circuses in Peru and Colombia will be airlifted to Africa this week, if the money still needed to carry out the operation can be raised, Animal Defenders International, or ADI, said. One of the lions is nearly blind, while another is missing an eye and all had their claws mutilated, ADI said. "These lions have endured hell on earth and now they are heading home to paradise. This is the world for which nature intended these animals for. It is the perfect ending to ADI's operation which has eliminated circus suffering in another country," ADI president Jan Creamer said. ADI has raised half the funds needed to pay for the airlift and is accepting donations at GreaterGood.com to cover the remaining costs. (laht.com)
