This enlists rage into me. It is one thing to buy and raise an exotic wild animal as a house pet, but a whole other thing to let it go because it got too big. If you are stupid enough to buy a lion, then at least take care of the thing instead of letting it go because it doesn't fit anymore. He should have known that the lion wouldn't be a good pet after it stopped being a cub. If a person shelters a baby animal until they get bigger because they lost their mom or something that is totally fine, but the way this is written, it doesn't sound like that at all.

That lion came from five generations of zoo lions. In my view, the life it currently has (well had) is much better than what it would have been given at a zoo.

you are an idiot. clearly he was no longer allowed to keep it probably due to change in laws, not the fact it didnt fit anymore.
who would get rid of a lion anyway..

Clearly? In the picture it "clearly" says that he let it into the wild when it got too big, not because of law changes.

Let's say you had a pet lion, you kept it for awhile, but THEN it got WAY too big for your home/apartment. Would you KEEP it or let it go FREE in an open space with OTHER lions? Yeah. That's what I thought. There was also some other reasons that maybe this guy didn't list, maybe FEEDING it? He did what he thought was appropriate for his lion. If you look at the NEWS or some other shows it will show other people who own panthers, they are kept in a HUGE cage, and they're RICH. If he let it go because of size he had no other place to PUT him.

If you are going to buy a lion, then you better have room for it, or else you shouldn't buy a lion. you aren't going to buy a car if you have no place to park it.

Would you think that far ahead? Maybe he thought he DID have enough room, and even if you did have enough room, why would you keep it confined to a small area when it can be with other lions at the zoo or wild life preserve?

Why buy a lion if you want it to have room!?

The post's story is wrong anyway, you could tell that it's not very believable.
The story may have been true but was summarized wrongly. How sure are we that the lion was really bought? How sure are we that any of this is true?

Try and take out the picture and read it again. To me, it looks like a poorly made story.

Maybe he thought the lion wouldn't get that big..? Just trying to be proportionate usually doesn't work if you don't know the exact dimensions.
