    Rafiki is a 7-month-old lion cub now living at In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center in Wylie.

    Four rescue lions are headed to their new home in North Texas.

    This week, the In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center in Wylie will get the lions rescued from a facility in New York that was unable to handle the big cats.

    Rafiki, a 7-month-old cub, is part of that group and arrived at the Wylie shelter on Tuesday.

    On Thursday, another male cub and two females will arrive.

    The new arrivals come after a difficult year at the wildlife sanctuary, where eight big cats died from an outbreak of canine distemper.
