King the Lion
Rescued from a Parisian apartment in October 2017 by the French charities, Fondation 30 Million d’Amis and Refuge de l’Arche, King was being kept illegally as an exotic pet in a small dirty cage.
Beaten and kicked by his owner who posted images of the abuse on social media, he was rehabilitated at Natuurhulpcentrum Rescue Centre in Belgium. Then Born Free relocated him to its big cat sanctuary at Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa. He now lives there with lifetime care, free from harm in a natural enclosure.
The donations from the Vintage Roots Wild Thing collection help fund King’s care including food veterinary care and enclosure maintenance.

“Born Free is working hard to tackle the wildlife trade and were delighted we could give King a lifetime home at Shamwari. It was an incredible moment when King bounded out of his travel crate at Shamwari – the whole team were elated and relieved to see him so relaxed despite his long journey and new surroundings.”
