Don’t Worry, Lions, Bob Barker Will Rescue You
Bob is staying busy after leaving the Price is Right. It’s probably just rumor but he might be starting a new show with all lion contestants.

It’s just a rumor, but that would be an exciting concept right?
Twenty-five lions, most of them rescued from Bolivian circuses, were being flown to Colorado to start their new lives at a wildlife sanctuary.
The 13 males and 12 females were scheduled to land at Denver International Airport late Wednesday afternoon.
The animals were rescued from deplorable conditions after a law was passed last year in Bolivia prohibiting all performances involving animals, Animal Defenders International said.
Television personality Bob Barker financed the rescue. He and Jorja Fox, a CSI actress and ADI ambassador, plan to welcome Operation Lion Ark and offer the lions their first drink of water after they land.
