Following a successful operation in Cuzco, Peru, today Smith the lion (whose life had been threatened after the attack on a woman at the circus), Kiara’s two cubs and Pepe the monkey were all taken from Circo Monaco. The huge operation involved the police, ADI, SERFOR and ATFFS. The animals are now on their way to our Spirit of Freedom temporary rescue centre. ADI commends the determination of the Peru authorities in the face of considerable aggression.
ADI is making a massive commitment to this operation, providing all funding, trucks, cages, crates, veterinary, food and care to rescue animals. Today was a good day for animals but we urgently need more funds for Operation Spirit of Freedom. Help us get them to safety.
