Lion Was So Sick She Almost Died — But Then She Found Love

Kahn is a beautiful male African lion, his roar is deep and powerful and his magnificent mane helped him to attract his wife, Sheila.

Sheila and Kahn are finally living happily, in safety and comfort after both African lions were rescued from an abusive situation.

The pair were rescued by Texas’ In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center from the same place, but not at the same time. There were months in between the two rescues. Kahn and Sheila were owned by someone who would use cubs for profit by renting them out for photos or taking bigger cats to events. Once the animals were older they were less desirable so the owner would stop caring for them. Founder of In-Sync said, “When they are no longer useful to him, he throws them aside and stops taking care of them. He’s since got his license revoked.”
