Rescued Lions and Tigers Have A Happy Halloween

Halloween is not just for humans; even the majestic lions and tigers get to partake in haunting Halloween festivities.

At the Animal Defenders International Wildlife Halloween came early for the big cats.

These animals, who once suffered in illegal circuses across countries like Peru, Colombia, and Guatemala, now have spacious enclosures that mimic the wild.

The ADI sanctuary believes in the importance of an enrichment program for its animals.

This program ensures that the animals remain active, curious, and content.

On the eve of Halloween, the caretakers at the sanctuary decided to surprise the big cats with carved pumpkins filled with catnip. The reaction? See for yourself. Swipe up!

They were seen rubbing, biting, and sniffing the gourds, fully immersed in the Halloween spirit.

Apart from the seasonal treats like catnip-filled pumpkins, the sanctuary provides these former circus animals with catnip bags, tires, hay bales, and giant play balls throughout the year.

Such initiatives are crucial for animals that have faced trauma, ensuring they lead a fulfilling life in their new homes.

Populations are dwindling due to habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict, and poaching. Conservation efforts worldwide are trying to reverse this trend, ensuring that future generations can witness the grandeur of these animals in the wild.

The Halloween celebration at the Animal Defenders International Wildlife Sanctuary is more than just a festive event. It symbolizes hope, transformation, and the unwavering spirit of animals that have faced adversity.
