The Canned Hunting is an activity inhuman and uncivilized born and practiced in South Africa that is spreading across Africa, Asia, the United States and Canada. We are talking about hunting is not random.
The procedure to perform this shame, first of all consists in removing wild animals from their natural habitat and bring them in factory farms for the sole purpose of making them become targets in an enclosed area from which they can not escape.
Most lionesses are continuously fertilized to produce targets of hunting. To the puppies females is broken neck and crushed his head because hunters like only males as trophies!
Some lionesses, which are subtracted puppies, they cry all the time and try to reach them, trying to gnaw the fence that separates them, suffering numerous injuries to the nose and mouth.
Many eyewitnesses claimed to have witnessed terrifying scenes, lions junkies and fired upon in tiny cages, during the course of a whole day, causing them a slow death.
The trophies made ​​from wild animals are ended, the hunting industry has folded on captive breeding, to have a profitable continuously supply to be allocated to victims of this horrible practice.
WWF, UNEP (United Nations Program for the Environment) and IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) have started to support canned hunting as a way to raise funds that will then go towards programs for the conservation and protection of nature and of animals.
These organizations have generated the principle of sustainable use, asserting that the use of natural resources is legitimized as long as it's wise and that is not excessive.
The hunting industry has conceived the principle of sustainable use to justify the lies that hide CRUELTY AND GREED

dear curzio is so knowledgeable and writes so well, that it puts chills down my spine. this obscene form of entertainment is only performed by the most depraved and mentally ill humans. this is not sport, nor funand games, this is holding a group of precious animals who stand NO chance of escaping or fighting back.little ones watch their own mothers being ripped apart, and then they are next. i want to scream, but that will not help. our family of care2 people will fight till this ends, i am sure of it. thank you,cher. signed.

I cannot even begin to list all the horrid things I wish on the sick shits who murder the lions. It is even more enraging to know what they do to the female puppies! Starting with guberterminator ugly as hell jan brewer on down, may the get the karma they richly deserve. I no longer know what millelium I am living in, when atrocities like this are going on!

Any human who goes to a "canned hunt" is pathetic and should be called human. This is killing of innocent animals because of some blood thirsty so called sport. Sad humans if you ask me. What the heck is wrong with people they can kill innocent animals.... sick bastards! What next, I hate to think!

I just learned about a canned hunt scam in 2006 involving Troy Gentry of the country music duo Montgomery Gentry. S.H.A.R.K. did a film about it and it is heartbreaking, but the narration is funny because it humiliates Gentry most satisfactorily. It is on some website I forgot where. It's worth watching to fully realize how barbaric and shameful canned hunts are. I always hated this cowardly practice, but it is much worse than you imagine.

Noted and signed - the savage bastards love canned hunting in SA - hence the reason our wildlife is being exterminated at an alarming rate. I honestly could just sit and cry my life away over this. These bastards are ruthless and heartless and it is horrific to know that these poor animals cannot even defend themselves or for that matter even speak!!!! I so wish i could round these rubbishes up and put them behind fences and shoot the crap out of them!
