Drakenstein Lion park, “Samson”
As promised, here is the next article about the Drakenstein Lion Park :
As explained it in the previous post, the Drakenstein Lion Park is a place where lions have access to a new and better life.
This week we decided to tell you Samson’s story.
Samson was born in approximately 2003 and was rescued and arrived at the Sanctuary on 10/12/2008.
Samson was rescued from a French circus where he was kept in the most appalling conditions. He spent most of his life in solitary confinement, jailed in a small circus trailer with barely enough room to move.
Samson’s relocation was made possible by :
Refuge De Le Arche, Foundation Assistance Aux Animaux and Animal Travel Services (www.animal-travel.com/) who once again assisted with the import free of charge.
Samson’s enclosure was sponsored by the Marchig Animal Welfare Trust.
