Some 6,000 cubs are bred every year in lion ‘factory farms’ for canned hunting, where semi-tame animals are shot in enclosures.
Raising a wild animal and releasing it in a fenced enclosure to be hunted, defenceless, by people devoid of emotions, further devalues the already poorer reputation of the human being among all living beings that have existed on this planet.
Canned hunting is the hunting of captive-bred animals in a confined area from which they cannot escape.
Each year, THOUSANDS of lions are bred in captivity and slaughtered to sell their bones to the far East where they are ground down for traditional medicine.
Due to South Africa’s barbaricbig cat industry, there are currently four times the amount of lions in captivity than in the wild. The lions who are born into captivity go on to lead miserable, brutal existences before their fate is decided by trophy hunters or wildlife traffickers. This is why we need your help!
More than 8,000 captive-bred lions are kept in more than 250 breeding facilities in South Africa, where they are exploited for profit at every stage of their lives.
In the lion breeding industry, paying volunteers are recruited to help hand-rear captive-bred lion cubs under the false impression that they will eventually be released into the wild. Tourists pay to take selfies while petting cubs or walking with lions. Ultimately, many of the animals will be shot by paying hunters, and this is the sad reality.
Lions are facing an unprecedented crisis…There are around 12,000 lions in captivity, while there are just 3,000 in the wild, This is why we need your help.
