This is Roman the lion, this handsome boy is one of the star attractions at the rescue. Roman was a “pay to play” cub, where people would pay money for photograph opportunities with a cub. The problem comes after 5 months when they become too big and dangerous and are typically sold or killed. Luckily for Roman, he was rescued and visitors can see him today in Pittsboro, NC and hopefully hear is amazing roar which vibrates through the air.
