Some are lucky as they are rescued in time by kind people while some can’t wait until rescuers come to help them. It’s a heartbreaking story that none of us wants to hear.

Regarding Kika, Djibril’s mother, she was rescued from a circus where she had been abused by cruel owners. She didn’t have any maternal skills, so she left her baby at birth.
