Should Trophy Hunting of Lions Be Banned?

Nowhere in the world is it legal to hunt wild tigers, as each remaining subspecies of the giant cat is infamously on the verge of extinction. Yet the close cousin of the tiger, the lion--almost equally large, equally charismatic and, in places, equally

Yes, as should all other forms of killing animals. If it continues like it's going, we will have nothing to show the grandchildren or their children of our wildlife. They will view them in books to see what they look like. (or the net). Sad, sad, sad. Thanks, Cher for this.

Why do you need some trophy on your wall or floor? Is this a recessive gene exerting influence on behavior? I have no trouble killing an animal or fish provided it is for food but there is no excuse for trophy hunting. I'm going to be the bad guy here. Responsible hunting serves a purpose. Many animals when overpopulated and starving then become problems for their specific species or for humans. I do believe in relocation whenever possible. However, it is sometimes necessary to cull. In Ontario we have problems with coyotes, bears, Canada Geese and other animals. Sometimes the road to hell is often paved with good intentions in the sense that by not dealing with a problem such as overpopulation which results in malnourishment it creates a greater problem with interference and possibly disease such as Lyme. So yes, I do advocate responsible hunting and fishing and quotas and severe penalties for those who don't honor the game laws.JMO

Forget the word trophy, and concentrate on hunting overall.

Absolutely. No animals should be hunted for trophies. Thanks, Cher.

a friend and her husband went to africa so her husband could kill a few animals, take photos with the dead animals and ultimately have them stuffed. she had many excuses that the tour company gave her in their brochures. people need to be educated, learn why trophy hunting is NOT good for the economy (which was her major excuse), and decide they do not want to hunt.

The Big Cats are dwindling all over the world. Some species faster than others. Some are approaching
the status of an endangered species. Others are approaching extinct in a matter of years.

ALL Big Cats, no matter the species anywhere in the world, must be protected.

Here is a list of petitions to help protect, save the Lions:,+petitio
