Sasha plays ball

Sasha plays with her Robust-a-Ball at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary, South Africa. Fun for Sasha and important physiotherapy for a lioness with a titanium implant in her leg. Sasha suffered a traumatic declawing process, crushing a toe, as a cub in a Guatemalan circus. It became infected and turned into cancer.After ADI rescued her, veterinarian Peter Caldwell performed groundbreaking surgery, replacing diseased leg bone with a titanium plate. Sasha’s original limp is still evident, due to contracted tendons – a legacy of years of limping in the circus, but she is now pain and cancer free. Enrichment, like these balls, is vital for keeping animals physically and mentally healthy.
