A tiny lion cub with a mighty name needs your help! Please visit: http://bit.ly/_LongLiveTheKing- 🦁

Kept illegally as an ‘exotic pet’, King was found in an abandoned Paris apartment, half-starved and cowering in a small, dirty cage. He had been found after shocking footage was circulated on social media of a man kicking and punching him… Little King is now at a temporary rescue centre. Your kindness and support today will allow Born Free to take King back to his ancestral homeland of Africa, to our big cat sanctuary, Shamwari Game Reserve.

#TBT When a farmer accidentally disturbed a serval with her four cubs, the mother made off with two of them, leaving Shalla and Ajee alone. The farmer took the two frightened servals in, fed them and reported this to EWCA (as it’s illegal to keep wild animals in Ethiopia).

The decision was made for them to be relocated to our rescue centre, Ensessa Kotteh, for rehab and release. When they arrived, Shalla and Ajee were taught how to fend for themselves and released back to the wild!
