15-year-old Lion Feels Grass for the First Time

In a heartwarming tale of resilience and hope, Reuben, a 15-year-old lion, experienced the feel of grass beneath his paws for the first time.

His journey from captivity to freedom is a testament to the indomitable spirit of animals.

Born in a private zoo in Armenia, Reuben’s early life consisted of isolation and neglect.

All the animals found new homes when the zoo closed its doors, except for Reuben.

He was confined to a barren enclosure of concrete and bars for over five years.

The absence of fellow lions took a toll on Reuben’s spirit.

The ADI Wildlife Sanctuary in Africa came to Reuben’s rescue.

The journey was long, spanning 15 hours, but the team ensured Reuben’s comfort.

The most magical moment came when Reuben stepped out of his crate onto the African soil.
