Samson was born in approximately 2003 and arrived at the Sanctuary on 10/12/2008.

Samson was rescued from a French circus where he was kept in the most appalling conditions. He spent most of his life in solitary confinement jailed in a small circus trailer with barely enough room to move.

Samson’s relocation was made possible by:

Refuge De Le Arche, Foundation Assistance Aux Animaux and Animal Travel Services ( who once again assisted with the import free of charge.

Samson’s enclosure was sponsored by the Marchig Animal Welfare Trust
