14 year old Zulu and Arusha have spent their entire lives together and were forced to perform in half a dozen movies and many live shows.  This type of life is grueling for captive animals.

These two sisters were rehomed to LTB by former exotic animal trainer, Brian McMillan. Brian spent much of his life training lions for everything from circus acts to the movies.  But, as time wore on, Brian began to feel more like an animal advocate than an animal trainer because he was always having to plead for better treatment of the animals. He has since ended his career because he believes that the animals deserve better.
