Lions of Lyon

Lions of Lyon

Four little lion cubs desperately need your help.  All only a few months old, they were taken from their mothers and found in terrible suffering – battling the pain of glaucoma, extreme hair loss, skin irritations and diarrhoea.

Shockingly, these cubs discovered in France, were found in captive conditions no animal should ever be subjected to – an apartment, a garage, even a Lamborghini.  Selfishly being kept as pets and deprived their life in the wild.

The cubs are currently in temporary accommodation in Lyon, but our intentions are to give them a permanent home at our big cat rescue centre in South Africa, where they will receive lifetime care in a safe, spacious and enriching environment, surrounded by the sights and sounds of Africa.

This is the biggest lion relocation in our 35-year history, but these four cubs are probably the smallest we have helped- will you help to give this urban pride a life worth living.
