This is Kahn, an African lion that is easily recognized by his deep roar and unique mane. Kahn and his mate, Sheila both had abusive pasts but are now living as lions should. Both Kahn and Sheila now live at In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center in Texas.
Before they arrived at In-Sync, the cats were seized when the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) got a tip that an entertainment facility was neglecting and abusing wild cats.
Their former owner would rent out big cats to weddings and birthday parties.
When the cats would no longer bring him any money, they were neglected. The USDA took the newly rescued Kahn to In-Sync.
