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.

    Tony Street the owner/manager of Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse has also donated Elk steaks to In-Sync for Aramis Monday the 28th and is coming out Saturday to visit Aramis and is bringing him some more Elk. Thank You so much to Tony of Y.O. and to Jason of Twisted Root for their very generous donations!

    Although I’m not a great fan of Twisted Root’s burgers, I am an avid cat owner. So, I will stop by Twisted Root and have a meal as way of saying “thank you” to Jason for his thoughtful generosity.

    I watched Aramis chowing down on some of the donated Elk meat last night on the news and it made my heart feel good. Especially as they “hid” his much needed medicine in the Elk meat.

    I fulfilled my promise to have a meal at Twisted Root today. So, along with three friends, we had a “thank you” lunch for Jason’s feeding Aramis as stated in my previous post above.

    Still not enamored with their burgers but to me, a promise made is a promise kept.
