Canned Hunting Legal! Share
Sad news for lions in South Africa. After years of legal wrangling, the predator breeders have won their court case challenging new legislation aimed at curtailing the abhorrent practice of canned hunting.
After 13 years of public outcry at the brutal and barbaric practice of breeding lions in captivity for the sole purpose of being shot by some perverted sicko who gets their kicks from killing tame lions, canned hunting will now officially continued unchecked and probably flourish even more.
At least 3 captive bred / hand reared lions are killed in SA every day and this number will probably increase dramatically.
For 13 years there have been petitions, court cases, documentaries and print media articles against canned hunting, to no avail! It is now time for normal people to stand up and be counted. Do not support ANY facility that breeds lions in captivity. Do not support ANY facility that offers cub petting opportunities. If you do, then you are probably supporting canned hunting!
Do not believe the lies you are told about rehabilitation / conservation. Captive bred lions in SA are either funneled directly to canned hunting farms or they are used to breed victims for canned hunts. By supporting a facility that breeds lions in captivity, you are supporting canned hunting.
I think one should go even further, do not associated with people who visit places where captive lion breeding occurs, educate them if possible, but if not, then they should be alienated. Do not support companies who offer tours to facilities where captive breeding / cub petting occurs and let them know why.
You are now the only hope for the captive bred lions being slaughtered in SA every day.
