Lion Brothers Freed From Life Of Cruelty Can’t Stop Hugging One Another

Pancho and Temuco are lion brothers who were snatched out of their natural habitat and forced to perform in a circus for years. Only days before this video was taken they were rescued from the circus by Animal Defenders and for the first time in their lives they got to enjoy each other’s company without someone cracking a whip.

Their rescuers were in tears when they saw these two, now elderly brothers enjoying little things in life, like hugging, rolling around, and generally being bros. I hope this is just the first step towards them being released back into the wild.
