BLOODLIONS

PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS MESSAGE if you agree that CANNED LION HUNTS and BREEDING OF LIONS IN CAPTIVITY in South Africa should be STOPPED! #bloodlions

Blod-lions

Yesterday evening I watched an excellent documentary – titled BLOODLIONS – on this subject at the 36th Durban film festival.

Pippa Hankinson, the film’s producer, recently stayed at Thanda and we had a talk on the subject. After that talk I decided to go and watch the film.

I think that regardless of what one thinks of the moral and animal-rights issues it is in the best interest of South Africa as a country to stop these hunts and the breeding in captivity as soon as possible. And if other countries (99% of the hunters are foreigners) join Australia in banning the import of Lion parts then they will help tremendously in this cause.

Tourism is one of the most important parts of the South African economy and its reputation must not be damaged by just a few thousand ‘canned’ Lion hunters being allowed to get their trophy! Currently thousands of Lions are bred and raised just to supply these hunts and the Lion bone trade business.

  1. I made a comment earlier, but it got lost somewhere. Canned hunts are a rich persons pathetic attempt at killing a lion without putting effort into it. Then hanging the trophy on his wall. It isn’t a sport! It is cruel. It shouldn’t be legal anywhere!
    As World Wildlife Fund States: “Stop Wildlife Crime. It’s Dead serious!”

  2. I made 2 comments, both disappeared. Where they too strong? Was I politically incorrect, and or step on someones toes?
