"These zoo lions had no hunting experience, and so it took them about an hour to kill a donkey"
I did a Care2 news article on this-just disgusting,no words for it,also there is a petition for it.
save Dianne, gracias
I mean signed, sorry!
Yes, that's the difference. The poor Donkey suffered needlessly for money and so-called entertainment. These are not Wild Lions therefore don't know how to kill efficiently. Aye Alicia, se me parece que tu estas muy cansada tambien come mi. ja,ja. Save Dianne si, si.. Couldn't send you Eco Warrior and Dianne Lynn a green star sooo...*greenstars*
Back at you Vinnie :)
UP-DATE 12/12/12.Petition closed at 4,050 signs.... Reza Javalchi, president of the Iranian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, based in Tehran says, %u201CMany people went to see the donkeys being fed and filmed these gruesome scenes. The zoo had made the feedings into one of its main attractions, with advertisements for it all over the place. While there were very strong reactions to the videos on Facebook, the state radio and television showed no interest in reporting on this. We asked the head of the zoo to put an end to the feedings. He argued that this was what happened in the wilderness. We explained that in the wild, lions kill their victims in a matter of minutes, while these zoo lions had no hunting experience, and so it took them about an hour to kill a donkey. He finally agreed to halt these feedings for the time being. In Iran, there is no serious punishment for animal cruelty; in the worst-case scenario, perpetrators will be fined about 50 euros.%u201D Evidently, the donkey feedings have finally been stopped. Observers, france24 THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SIGNED AND SHARED,DIANNE LYNN ELKO
