In the video, a lion is lying lifeless on a bench and forced to sit up so that a group of tourists can pose for photos with him. These lions are later KILLED with their bones sold to the Far East.
It looks like the poor animal was given a heavy dose of sedatives. The video shows him fast asleep on the bench as his head is dragged upright and face is tapped with a baton to keep him "in position".
Canned hunting is the hunting of captive-bred animals in a confined area from which they cannot escape.
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.
