Thanks to a new animal-release supercut from The Dodo, we can see lions, tigers, chimpanzees, seals, rabbits, and even chickens stretch their legs, wings, and tails in their newfound environment outside cages and laboratory facilities.  “Huge-hearted humans dedicate their lives to rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing injured animals to sanctuaries and the wild,” Emily Pelleymounter, The Dodo’s video producer, said in a statement. “And that moment when an animal gets his first taste of real freedom? It is unforgettable for animals and humans alike.”
