A new life in South Africa has begun for over 30 lions rescued from circuses in Peru and Colombia.
Most of the lions were taken from circuses in surprise raids and were moved to Africa in what's thought to be the biggest airlift of its kind.
The group landed in Johannesburg over the weekend and soon will be living on a 12,000-acre private sanctuary.
It's unlikely the lions would've survived if they'd been released into the wild instead. Many had broken teeth and their claws were removed before being rescued.
The use of wild animals in circuses was banned in Peru in 2011 and in Colombia in 2013. Nine of the lions rescued were voluntarily surrendered by a Colombian circus.
