It just hurts my heart to see what's happening to the magnificent big cats.

These gorgeous animals must be protected. I am afraid of the day when there won't be any roaming the savana anymore...

Too saddening. I long for the day when the hunt on humans will be legalized.

Valentina, the hunt of some humans used to be legalised. Have you seen 'Schindler's List'? Some Nazis did hunt Jews as if they were animals...

We as humans NEED to do everything we possibly can to save these amazing ,beautiful creatures.This saddens me and angers me so much to think that the worlds most majestic top of the line predator could disappear right in front of us,how very shameful.What is Africa without lions,without that roar,without prides and the cutest little cubs,?????without them what do tourists see??? if we let these gorgeous animals go then what???? Maybe each and every one of us needs to sit down and watch Born Free then i dare anyone with a heart beating in their chest not to want to save these beautiful animals.I say long live the king of the jungle for without them there is no jungle.
