We'll admit this story made us cry happy tears. Last April, rescue organization Animal Defenders International and local law enforcement in Peru conducted a raid on a traveling circus. They were looking for Mufasa, a mountain lion held captive since he was a cub. The poor creature had lived his whole life in deplorable conditions.
After an eight-hour standoff between the circus and the rescuers, Mufasa was finally handed over. He was then transported to the Spirit of Freedom rescue center near Lima, where he was treated for a number of ailments. Now, after a long, hard road, Mufasa's journey is about to come to its happy ending.
