She could have lived until 40 in the wild, where the average life span of a lion is double that in captivity. But Maiza is frail and nearly blind after 18 years in the circus, jumping through flaming hoops and performing at the point of a trainer's whip.

"Circus animals never have a nice day. The worst zoo in the world is not as bad as the best circus." OK, I am ill again...what will happen to the animals? Set loose somewhere to fend for themselves? Sold off to breeders or worse? Lord, keep them safe and get them into sanctuaries somewhere, somehow! TY, Cher...good post
