A step in the right direction. Now we must go further until there is no more lion hunter of any kind ever again. Noted.

"This decision is a victory for citizens everywhere who now can begin, again, calling on President Zuma to end the brutal lion-bone trade, before lions are wiped out for good," said Avaaz campaign director Emma Ruby-Sachs.

Do whatever it takes to stop poachers.

Thanks Cher but I prefer to not comment, I'm tired to hear this type of news when lions and others animals in dangerous continue to be imported in some countries just to kill them for sport!
