Back in the 1960's there were over 200,000 lions in Africa. Today there are less than 16,000, a decline of more than 90%. Of those 15,250 remaining lions, only around 2,000 are adult males - the target of lion trophy hunters.

I am shocked. No I'm not! Sadly Lions can legally be hunted down and killed. Shame on those that legalized it and shame on you a-holes that want these beautiful animals hanging on your walls or walking on them as if they never had a heartbeat! People like you disgust me, and you should really reevaluate your obligations and your morals for being on this planet!

Rhinos extinct in Mozabique and now lions on the same trajectory with approximately 2,000 males in all Africa and going down that will see then extinct in 3 years. Don't they know it takes a male and a female to perpetuate the species? The only kind of safari or 'hunt' that is allowed should be with a camera! Perhaps we should open a hunting season on hunters with lions having the weapons!

I have joined the lion Aid Organization in an effort to assist in the ban on lion trophy hunting in Africa.
To avoid extinction of the lion species entirely, further steps must be taken in the areas of canning,
trapping and poaching.
Thank you Cher.

There is no more time to waste! The world is losing our most majestic species and it is all due to human folly. We must put all of our efforts towards preserving these amazing animals and put a stop to all efforts of eradicating them from the face of the earth. Trophy hunting should be a crime and anyone who supports it should be brought to justice and made an example of.

Murdering sentient beings through high -powered weapons at a safe distance for self full-filllment to hang a dismembered head of a dead being on your wall does not make you a "trophy hunter". It does make you a sniper and a murderer. It makes you the destroyer of lion prides and decimates the numbers even further. If you have ever heard the roar of a lion and how far it carries you would never even consider this activity knowing that you are silencing that beauty forever. This is NOT hunting. This is NOT entertainment. This IS annihilation of majestic sentient beings. It is unconscionable and indefensible and an atrocity. This is one activity we can all do without. Try trophy photography instead! Use the pictures on the wall instead!

Why would anyone have a dead animal on their wall? Trophy hunting does nothing but take the males needed to maintain a viable herd. Stupid. Flies in the face of sound game management. There once was a blind man on my flight, he was on his way to go trophy hunting. His son would aim the weapon and he got to pull the trigger. I changed seats.

Signed noted and commented - disgusting...hard to believe that there are people out there that kill for a business! Lion hunts are not hunts! These lions are raised use to human, let out to a bait trap, goes t the food, while some BRAVE man stands there with a gun, and kills it. This is not hunting, of any kind, or a sport. They think they are so brave..they are cowards..and so disconnected from nature, and wildlife.
