Footage shared this week by Rancho dos Gnomos Santuário in Brazil revealed what was likely to be the greatest moment of lifetime for a lion named Will. The majestic cat spent 13 years living in a metal cage and had never felt the earth beneath his feet.
He had been forced to perform with a travelling circus his entire life, and was confined to the cramped cage where he could barely move. In 2005, thanks to the kind hearts of the group that rescues domestic, exotic and wild animals from abusive environments, that all changed.
The video, just released by the ecological sanctuary, captured the amazing moment that the lion touched grass and soil for the very first time.
