Circus Lion Was Locked In A Steel Cage For 13 Years… Watch Him Feel Grass For The First Time.

Is easy to take the little things in life for granted: The comfort of a hot cup of coffee, a hug from a best friend, or the feeling of fresh grass beneath your bare feet. In 2006, after 13 years of imprisonment, Will the lion can definitely relate. He was in a cage where he could barely move, held captive by a circus. Miraculously, Will was rescued by Rancho dos Gnomos Animal Sanctuary and they caught his first outdoor venture in 13 years on film.

Here's another heartwarming video of chimpanzees being freed after 40 years of medical testing.
