Reportedly Malnourished Lions Forced to Eat Their Own Deserve Justice

Target: Charl Terblanche, owner of Farm Olivia

Goal: Get justice for the deaths of 30 allegedly malnourished lions.

As massive fires sweep through the Free State area of South Africa, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SCPA) has been moving through the region, caring for injured animals. One area in particular was especially gruesome. Farm Olivia is a game reserve located outside of Bloemfontein, and when inspectors from the SCPA came to the farm they reportedly discovered 59 lions, tragically abused. The owner of the farm allegedly knew for 5 days that the animals were injured, and yet administered no medical treatment, nor did he call for help. The lions were reportedly discovered huddled together, unable to escape the flames not because of a fence or enclosure, but because they were too malnourished to move. Several of the cats were apparently too weak to stand, and were so famished that some turned on one of their own, killing and eating it. 

Vets from the SCPA treated the animals for days, but 30 of them were too weak and injured to save, and in the end had to be euthanized. The owner was not present for either the inspection or the euthanization, and inspectors say he laughed when presented with a warning and refuses to comply with any subsequent warnings or spend any money on his lions. You can also visit the Bloemfontein SPCA’s website and click on the donate button to help care for these animals. Use the reference ‘Lions.’

The alleged behavior at Farm Olivia is absolutely disgusting, and the horror the cats seem to have gone through is tragic. While a lawsuit has been leveled against the owner of the establishment, it is vital that he never be allowed to hurt animals again. Sign the petition to ensure that he does not profit from the abuse and mistreatment of these lions.


Dear Mr. Terblanche,

The recent allegations of animal abuse levied against you by the SCPA paint the image of a morally corrupt man profiteering off of the mistreatment and neglect of animals. Your apparent behavior is horrifying, even before the fires that burned and suffocated the cats that you own. You allegedly knew that these lions were suffering, and yet did not raise a finger to alleviate their pain in any way. You reportedly laughed at their pain, and now you must do the right thing by paying for their treatment, along with stepping down from ownership of Farm Olivia, a position that you appear incapable of maintaining. 

Shame on you, Mr. Terblanche.

  1. These beautiful 😻, and majestic 🐈🦁cats are treated like garbage by this turd. The monstrous turd deserves jail not a fine. Lowlife, hateful, cruel turd and monster.

    I wonder if Charl Terblanche will laugh at his own pain if he gets burnt in a fire? Let’s hope HIS farm is the first to be seized in the planned “expropriation without compensation” law, when it is passed and enacted.

  3. There are NO WORDS for such depraved cruelty — the torturous suffering had to have been unbearably horrific — WHAT KIND of Human would allow this — such a sadistic, immoral, hateful mindset MUST NOT be allowed — throw this IDIOT in PSYCHE Ward — he’s a DANGER to society.

  4. There is WAY too much abuse of animals in South Africa!

  5. Manitou Calmstorm says:

    They should have fed the lions alright, on the carcass of the piece of shit who abused those magnificent cats.

    Just who the hell does he think he is? I’ll tell you who be is, a lowlife pile of lion shit, because they should feed this bastard to those starving babies.
