Oh well, in the meantime that all this experts continue to discuss about it poachers continue to massacre the lions so I don't know why just they don't stop and do something concrete!!!!!

I think one of the problems would be that you would not only be fencing in the Lion, but you would also be fencing in the animals that move vast distances, like the Elephant, and also it has been found in the past that migrating animals, or animals in search of water, will try and get over those fences, herds of Wildebeest or Eland and many smaller animals might die of thirst in the process, I think there is a lot still to find out...meanwhile private game reserves in South Africa dropped all their fences between them and the Kruger park, so that they animals can move more naturally during migration season.
Thanks Cher...we will watch proceedings.
