It has really been business as normal for Leo since his return to the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary following surgery to remove an eye due to a cataract which had become inflamed. It was feared Leo might lose his sight when we first rescued him from a circus in Peru, because his eyes were in such poor condition. However, thanks to the right care, that was over seven years ago. Leo, who is 17 or 18 years old, is recovering well, back with his companion Muñeca, and walking about the enclosure as if nothing has happened.
The animals at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary have nearly all been rescued from abusive conditions in circuses in Peru, Colombia and Guatemala. Our thanks to everyone who supports the veterinary care necessary to address these challenges.
