Panamian Lion Rescue
In Panama, many lions were rescued from a zoo next to the Gamboa Resort. 3 female lions and many other animals were locked up in cages and have been there for 14 years. The Denver Wild Animal Sanctuary contacted the police and ANAM (Panama's environmental arm of the government). To help, the Denver Wild Animal Sanctuary Carried the lions to a truck. The truck transported them to a plane, where they would be taken to the sanctuary. Now, the lions live peacefully with the other lions in the sanctuary. The other animals at the zoo were taken to a rehabilitation center, soon to be released into the wild.
