Species: African lion
Come from: Poland
Cesar and Elsa
Cesar and Elsa arrived at Stichting Leeuw on 24 September 2019. These two were owned as cubs by a private couple in Poland. The man went to jail and the woman had to get rid of the lions. Cesar and Elsa were taken to a temporary shelter in Slovakia, where they lived for a while. They were already on the waiting list for Stichting Leeuw, but had to wait for Simba and Isolde to move to South Africa. But time passed and the lions had to leave the temporary shelter, so they came here. Cesar and Elsa were in quarantine for a bit longer than usual.
Both lions found their place at Stichting Leeuw. Elsa is a very playful lioness and Cesar is a calm lion, and loves his new home.
