South Africa: No More Canned Hunts!
Lions are being trapped and bred for trophy hunting in South Africa. Stop the savagery!
Sponsored by:The Animal Rescue Site
Canned hunting is a type of hunting in which animals are placed in a confined area, then followed and gunned down by hunters. Also called trophy hunting, canned hunts are popular in South Africa, where lions are often bred for this purpose alone. Hunters come to these “canned” areas and pay large fees to hunt the lions.
With canned hunting, the animal is sure to die since it’s being held in an enclosed area with no chance for escape. It’s a completely unfair and brutal practice, and only exists for the entertainment of morally challenged hunters.
Sign the petition asking the head of the South African Department of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries, Peter Thabethe, to put a stop to these cruel canned hunts for good.
