Rescued circus lions land at DIA

On Wednesday February 16, 25 circus lions landed on a plane from Boliva, refugees after the country banned animal circuses. The lions were rescued by Animal Defenders International and reportedly were safely resting at the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado on Wednesday night. The lions will roam 80 acres there. Former Price is Right host Bob Barker and CSI actress Joria Fox were at DIA to greet the lions. Photos by Kate Levy.
