250 Emaciated Lions Found During Trophy Hunting Farm Raid





Thanks to one manís activism, 250 lions were rescued from being killed by affluent trophy hunters.

Itís a lesser-known fact that the African lionsí numbers are diminishing rapidly due to persecution by livestock farmers, habitat destruction, and human greed which has led to trophy hunting. In effect, only 10,000-15,000 free-roaming African lions remain Ė a steep decline from 50,000 a decade ago.

Unfortunately, itís not uncommon for these facts to be overlooked by egotistical hunters who would prefer to slaughter lions for sport than preserve their species. As a result, trophy hunting farms have sprung up in many countries in Africa.

At least for one private hunting farm, its get-rich scheme is under wraps after a German individual spotted emaciated lions in cages and took pictures to alert the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The activistís actions resulted in the farm being raided and 250 starving lions being rescued. ..............(more)

3. You know what, the Continent of Africa, the entire planet for that and this matter

really needs to take a really hard look at themselves/ ourselves, on this and other animal welfare issues, because tourist dollars are the long term prospect and generate more wealth, that is a simple fact, because once they (animals) are gone they are gone, then what do they/ we do?

Get information from some book with a picture------------------I mean really, the human species really needs to grown-up.

15. Nope, but I think you'll find other trophy farms

all over the west. It is a horrible, brutal business catering to the worst human beings on the planet.

My fantasy is that the big cats escape, interbreed with our domestic cougars, and the lot of them start to stalk and eat trophy hunters.
They have certainly had enough experience spotting them. Oh, and if they ate the owners of the trophy farm to overcome some of the malnutrition, that would be justice, also.

10. I was all for that

but they might poison the already sick lions

there is no value in killing wild animals

this ain't a guy with a knife and bare feet stalking and tracking a man killer

this is a guy with a high powered weapon, that could stop a tank a half a mile away, with a support group of 20, that makes sure no

harm comes to their meal ticket with a rifle.

7. This is disgusting!

Sometimes I hate the human race. We kill, pillage and use at random for selfish reasons. We really need population control.

20. I can't read things like this without wanting to smack a lot of humans.

And smacking them won't solve anything. I'd feel better, of course but nothing would change.

I'm glad someone reported them. That gives me a small measure of hope.
