Boston-based international animal protection organization, FOUR PAWS International sends giant-sized toys to lions and tigers in South African sanctuary.
International animal protection organization, FOUR PAWS International, has recently added a new component to their Big Cat Sanctuary, LIONSROCK in South Africa– Boomer Balls! Boomer Balls are manufactured exclusively in the USA in Grayslake, Ohio, as indestructible, and quite sizeable toys that provide excitement and enrichment to wild animals in captivity. FOUR PAWS International USA Executive Director, Wim DeKok arranged the shipment of 10 Boomer Balls, and six weeks later, they arrived at the South African sanctuary. Within minutes, the balls elicited curiosity from the big cats.
Hildegard Pirker, Head of Animal Welfare at LIONSROCK: "The animals were intrigued with the Boomer Balls as soon as they saw them. They began to paw at them, and play with them, and they were especially excited when the Boomer Balls rolled into the water!"
