How sad that they have diminished by hunters. Beautiful beasts, and it made me smile to see that pride freed again. Thank you

Cried at it and still crying. Thank you so much for sharing this. I hope everyone realises that if they go to the site they can sign a petition to help stop this trophy hunting of lions. How on earth can people enjoy killing such a majestic animal? I have posted to FB.

Has everyone seen the film called The Last Lions. It's very sad that we don't take care of the wild animals the way that G-d wants us to take care of them.

Christina T - you said there was a petition to sign - I have searched and searched and looked on - and there doesn't seem to be one. Have I missed it or has their petition crashed for the day?

Our arrogance and disrespect for our planet and all that reside on it will eventually be our destruction.

Pat you have to go to and you can click on "take action" at the top of the page the click on action alerts and you will see many issues that you can sign that you may be concerned about that will be sent to your representatives in congress and the Senate and the White House.

After going to the "visit site" it takes you to youtube. Then I clicked on the contact in the information that is in blue That takes you to the Bornfree site on this page it has the video and below that a petition to sign which says "I wish to sign Born Free's petition to save Africa’s wild lions and help prevent the suffering of captive lions in need." Hope this helps.

I, of course, bawled while watching and then became ENRAGED.

I so wish I was rich so I could get a HUGE group together and go find every last Mother f***er who even looks the wrong way at Lions or any wild creature and do a little trophy hunting ourselves..I am NOT a violent person but if and when I see someone being hurt, Im a Mama lioness., and Ive never had any kids! How can I feel so protective over people and animals and others can be so cold, cruel, and selfish? Which has the serious defect? the problem is that stupid thing called MONEY.

Im going to sign the petition...thanks for the beautiful video even though now Im pissed.

Correction Nicole; I choose to see this as a chance to SAVE the lions!! Just hearing the words 'born free' makes me cry so I bawled when I watched the video. There once was a show that came on once a week entitled 'Born Free' back in the late 60's and everytime I watched it and the song played I cried like a newborn baby because I couldn't stand seeing the lions get killed. Then my brother explained that they were tranquilizing the lions so they could help them. It still makes me cry. As many of you may know in my profile statement I have; 'To make sure all God's animals stay Born Free!' Will go right now to sign the petition. Thank you so much Christeen for posting and Christina for helping us find the petition.

God it has been that long? I saw the movie when it first aired. And all the change has been for the worse.
I signed petition but last page said to go to my inbox and confirm petition signed. Have not gotten this email after several attempts. I hope the slaughter stops.
Thanks Chisteen

Thanks Christeen. Wonderful video but so sad and disturbing that since the movie's release in 1966 the lion population has declined to approximately 25,000 from 100,000. When will the majority of humankind wake up and star to love this planet and all her creatures. Thanks also to Pamela W. for the heads up on this post. Viewed, noted and signed. Petition signed: "Thank you for making your voice heard for lions."

Thank you for posting Christeen. I love the remake video of Born Free. One of my all time favorite movies!! I hope it will help create more awareness for the lion's plight & how trophy hunting, with the US being the biggest culprits here, is driving these magnificent big cats to near extinction. Lions must be put on the endangered species list & ASAP!!! I posted to FB also.

Thank you for posting this. I remembered seeing the original movie when it first came out and loving that too.. So sad that future generations may never see a lion in the wild, only in cages or a Zoo. Are people really so greedy that we want the whole planet just for ourselves?

to protect animals and our planet, we need to know and understand.
Is difficult to see this video that shows the end of the king of Africa, but I do it and we must do in the hope that future generations can see lions free in your environment
Signed and noted - Thank you so much Christeen and Nicole for the fw

In the last year 5,660 lions were killed for "sport"? And 64% of them were exported to the United States? Those are not statistics we should be proud of. How manyTrump-types are there in this country? Anyone can be "courageous" when armed with a high-powered rifle and some experienced guides. Being rich should never be confused with being brave.

Thanks for sharing this Christeen, damn this song always makes my cry and to thik that people would actually shoot a lion for sport turns my stomach. My boyfriend hunts and he only shoots what we will eat, so far just deer. I do not understand trophy hunting at all, really are their units so small they have to prove their manhood by killing a lion?
