Concerned about them - This relocation was made possible thanks to the chiricano Emilio Knox, who has been living in the United States for more than 30 years, and who promotes the creation of new laws to protect abused animals. Another who helped was the Englishman Nigel Cosans. The wildlife expert, who works for Fox television and National Geographic, made a video of the transfer and the arrival of the lionesses at the sanctuary. He said in one year might this documentary might be shown by the National Geographic Channel.
In better condition - The lionesses will be living in a pen five times larger than where they were in La Chorrera, and they will be with other lions. Edgar Chacón, National Director of Protected Areas and Wildlife of the ANAM, said the rest of the animals at the zoo were removed and taken to other zoos in the country. (Dia a Dia)
