Abused in the big top
Jora and Black were Bulgaria’s last two circus lions. Taken from their mother as small cubs. Exploited for years in a big top. Forced to ‘entertain’ misguided audiences throughout eastern Europe. As you know, circus animals lead miserable, deprived lives. Trained to perform stupid unnatural tricks. Undercover investigations and court cases have revealed horrific abuse and systematic mistreatment. Thankfully Bulgaria has made a stand against this. Since January 2015 the country has banned the use of wild mammals in circuses. A move welcomed by Born Free and other animal welfare experts.
PS Your gift today will give these two magnificent lions the future they deserve!
