Lion cubs bred to be shot by foreign hunters - Safari operator and environmental writer Ian Michler has exposed a multi-million dollar industry in South Africa, where lions are bred in captivity to be shot by trophy hunters. And that the practice is being partly funded by donors who believe they are giving to lion sanctuaries.

The canned hunting of lions - Late Night Live - Canned hunting is the practice of hunting where the target animal is unfairly prevented from escaping the hunter, either by physical constraints, such as fencing, or by mental constraints, such as habituation to humans and the industry is booming in South Africa.

Re: Responsible advertising and responsible tourism

Your Advertisement for the Lion Park in Johannesburg on your 'confirmation ticket' email, and your 'in flight magazine', is endorsing the canned hunting industry and the death of thousands of lions every year. The cub petting industry is just the beginning of the cycle of abuse to these magnificent animals. Your advertisement says it is OK to use cruel methods of removing the cubs from their mothers, using them to make vast sums of money and then sell them to be brutally shot by hunters. Your advertisement is endorsing the Lion Park and sending all the wrong messages to unsuspecting tourists visiting our country.

March 15 Global March for Lions

The world needs to know - stop supporting the cub-petting and walk with lions experience – the first steps of untold misery for cubs ripped away from their mothers soon after birth. The march is a call on our governments to BAN the deplorable Canned Hunting Industry. We will raise awareness to educate the rest of the world regarding every stage of the life-cycle of torture of a canned lion.

The fraudulent luring of ignorant volunteers who pay for the “privilege” to “care for” the cubs – all destined to be killed in an enclosed camp where they will have no way of escape. Often shot numerous times to prevent "spoiling" the trophy with a shot in the head, which will be mounted on a foreign wall and the bones exported to Asia for bogus medicine - all for top dollar.

Join us and help us expose this crime – a crime against the very essence of morality. A crime against nature, a crime against Africa, a crime against humanity!

Please join us, and if you can arrange a march in your city/town, please let us know. We want our message to be spread in, and to every corner of the world – however remote. It matters not how big or small your march – join us – save our lions!

The march supports of the work of Chris Mercer and Bev Prevan – for more information about their work see
