URGENT ACTION NEEDED! STOP EGYPTIAN LUNATIC FROM MURDERING LION TO BUTTRESS EGYPTIAN TOURISM!
3 years ago
| VALLEE'S PETITIONS/NEWS

 

Dear Friends:  
An Egyptian "man" has announced he has purchased an African lion from a breeder for $4,200 U.S. As you can see from the photo, the lion is caged and familiar with the owner. This lunatic, allegedly given permission by the Egyptian Minister, plans to "fight" this lion with a shield and dagger to "defend" himself prior to killing the lion with his "bare hands" inside of a cage at the Pyramids of Giza. This "fight" is to buttress "tourism" in Egypt. Said individual, who claims he prepares "mentally" to "fight" the lion four hours a day also claims to jump tall building and possess "supernatural powers."
We cannot allow this spectacle to move forward and must get this lion out of this idiot's hands.
Please sign the petition below and forward/share with as many friends as possible. We need a Care2 petition on this front as well. This monster plans to murder the lion on June 25th, so no time can be wasted. TY Michelle >^..^<

I found this address at a government contact site for Egypt. I believe if we bombard relevent parties with as many voices (via email) as we possibly can, we will make an impact and save this lion's life. Trust me....if he doesn't do it at Giza, he'll murder the lion in a back yard or alley for kicks. We MUST get the lion out of this lunatics hands into safety! TY >^..^< Michelle

My letter to the embassy:
Dear Madames/Sirs:

I speak for animal advocates the world over, including those in Egypt, when I say that the planned murder of a caged lion by Al-Sayed al-Essawy on June 25th for the purpose of buttressing Egyptian tourism is utterly
appalling and needs to be stopped.

The said individual, who purchased the African lion from a breeder for $4,200, has been given the green light to "fight" the animal with a dagger and shield, then kill it with his "bare hands" in front of the Pyramids at Giza by the Ministry of the Interior.

This individual, who claims to be able to eat rivets, drag cars with hooks, jump tall
buildings and possess supernatural powers
clearly lacks mental competence.

This lion is in grave danger and needs to be removed from the possession of this individual immediately. If the Ministry of the Interior thinks that allowing
Egyptian soldiers to murder endangered species for public spectacle will improve Egyptian tourism, they are sorely mistaken. Visitors to Egypt relish seeing artifacts of antiquity, not endangered animals being murdered by
lunatics.

Please intervene at once and ascertain the safety of the animal in this individual's possession. I urge you to demand the Ministry step in on behalf of the lion and stop
this senseless blood spectacle from moving forward.
