Though the circuses are places of entertainment and make many people including children have fun, the mistreatment of animals there is inhuman. Many animals are overweight or treated very severely just for doing some fascinating tricks.
Recently 33 caged lions were set free from traveling circuses in Colombia and Peru. Now they are enjoying the African sun on their backs and playing in the enormous areas without anyone accompanying them.
The poor lions were rescued by Animal Defenders International (ADI). Tim Phillips, the Animal Defenders International co-founder, said that they faced many difficulties but they overcame the challenges and managed to bring happiness to these lions.
