Noted and signed - I pray that for every lion they kill they get eaten by another one. How barbaric, savage and brutal are we towards our defenceless animals. I am sick to my stomach to think that every second of every day horrendous cruelty is just being inflicted upon each and every living animal.

To do this with such endangered animals on the brink of extinction yet! How I hope that we can put all of these people with no conscience or scruples out of business permanently!!

In Nairobi, there's a restaurant called "CARNIVORE" where you can buy just about every ''exotic'' meat possible. Foreigners love it.

I hate it.

It's not about turning off the hunger, but the cruelest human arrogance. Satisfy a desire, gluttony, feeding on animals considered exotic. It is a disgrace to society and also to allow farms where cruelty is exercised in all animals everyday consumer, should be avoided and even eliminated, now also have to be vigilant about these beings, which can not be considered within the human species capable of all for greed, gluttony. No qualifiers. Signed the petition and uploaded to twitter to circulate.

Signed and noted, of course. I recall there was an exotic meat market in the South Suburbs (I think it was Lemont or Orland Park) that had all kinds of meat that should NEVER be eaten except in extreme emergency. Lion, Giraffe, Tiger, etc. I tried 20 years ago to get friends to help me get them down to Deer, Elk, Caribou, Buffalo and Ostrich.
