IN PICS: From circus cages to veld – big cats finally taste freedom
One of 12 tigers and 5 lions that have been transported from Guatemala after spending their lives in circuses arrives at OR Tambo Cargo Depot, 21 January 2020. Guatemala recently banned all animals in circuses in that country. These animals are destined for a sanctuary in the Free State. The operation dubbed Liberty was organised by Animal Defenders International (ADI) and supported by GreaterGood.org. Picture: Neil McCartney
