Lions Rescued by Big Cat Rescue

Nikita was seized in a drug raid and sent to the Nashville Zoo, but zoos don't want animals that are of unknown parentage. She had been chained to the wall of a crack house and was a skeleton of a cat. She had huge swellings on her elbows from laying on concrete her whole life. There aren't many lions, especially males, in real sanctuaries because when people are trying to get rid of them the owners of canned hunts will pay for them, often telling the former owners they are a sanctuary. Then people will pay $2000.00 to shoot the cat so they can stuff him as a tribute to their sportsmanship.
