Twisted Root Burger Co. Helps Save Sick Lion

Meet Aramis. He is an 8-year-old African lion living at In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center in Wylie. Aramis is sick and requires a special diet but all he will eat at this point is elk.

Vicky Keahey, founder of In-Sync Exotics, called hunters to help but so far she has not been able to secure enough meat for Aramis. Yesterday Jason Boso of Twisted Root gathered 53 pounds of elk and hand-delivered it to Aramis. Customers of Twisted Root may go without elk burgers for a while but that seems like a small price to pay for the live of a sick lion in captivity. In-Sync Exotics is dedicated to the rescue of neglected, abused, and unwanted exotic felines.  To learn more about In-Sync Exotics and Aramis the Lion, click here.
