Mufasa is a mountain lion who was used in an illegal traveling circus in South America. He was chained to the back of a pickup truck for an astounding 20 years after being taken from the forest as a baby.

Animal Defenders International (ADI) raided the circus in Peru and freed Mufasa from his lifelong chains. The elderly Mufasa is the last cat to be rescued from this circus.

He was taken to ADI’s Spirit of Freedom rescue center near Lima to rehabilitate. Following his rehabilitation, Mufasa then began a three day journey by land and water to Tambopata reserve in the Amazon rainforest where he will live out the remainder of his life.

The mountain lion who suffered his whole life in chains now experiences freedom to move around the reserve. As you can see in the video, his transformation from chained circus animal to freedom is complete.
