Playful Sasha

Sasha was rescued by ADI from a Guatemalan circus where her front toes were cut off to prevent her claws growing, crushing one toe in the process, which became infected and turned into cancer. Once at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary, South Africa, Sasha underwent groundbreaking surgery, which involved replacing diseased bone with a titanium implant. Although now pain- and cancer-free, the tendons in her leg are contracted due to a lifetime of limping, so we are providing her with ongoing physiotherapy and rehabilitation – this tire filled with catnip, kindly provided by Kunduchi Pet Products – perfect to help keep this playful lioness mobile and her spirits high.
