Also Known AsAdam
Adam was rescued by Team Ubuntu and a group of Salesforce volunteers from a lion hunting farm in the Free State Province. He was used a breeding male and lived happily with his own pride of four lionesses.
Adam’s only saving grace was that his life was closely followed by the woman who raised him, and had since turned reporter and activist against lion hunting, lion bone exporting and all forms of animal abuse.
Adam’s case was quite unique in that a permit for his 1) euthanasia and 2) a transport permit were issued. In a race against time we managed to get him out of the farm with literally hours to spare before his planned death. He arrived at Ubuntu, severely traumatized and not trusting humans. But, as with all animals at Ubuntu, Adam received special treatment and attention and over a period of two years, Jurg managed to build up his confidence…and today Adam is a proud, dominant male…and very protective of his new girl, Eve.
As the saying goes… “We may not have made a difference in world…but we did make the world of difference for Adam”.
