Birds, monkeys, tortoises, porcupines, an emu and Laziz were all rushed to safety - most of the animals found a new home in Jordan's New Hope Center. Laziz was transported to Four Paws' Lionsrock Lodge & Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa. It seemed Laziz was more than ready for a new start in life. According to Four Paws, Laziz's new home features two acres of grassy land and a swimming pool.
"Laziz made a start and went into his transport crate without hesitation," Four Paws wrote on Facebook in late August. "He even seems to behave more calm in the crate now than he ever has in his desolate cage."
Throughout his transport, Laziz was pampered with fresh water, food and "air conditioning" - his crate was kept cool with ice and a fan.
