After 4 years of legal wrangling regarding the abhorrent practice of 'canned hunting' of lions in South Africa, the Supreme Court of Appeal in South Africa gave their final verdict on Monday, 29 November, 2010. Distressingly, the Supreme Court ruled

South Africa is getting to be increasingly like China in it's lack of Animal Welfare......canned hunting & rampant poaching v bear bile farms and the fur trade. Boycott them.

Maybe they're just scared that the lions may attack them that's why they're making the first move

The lion is the king of the Jungle.. Feared yet loved by his entire kingdom…
Fear the wrath of Nature..
Respect life… never treat an animal bad for no matter what, it would never treat a human this way.. Man has stolen its home.. and gloats on his inventions look at the planet today mans inventions have destroyed every life’s home…what was natures gifts, enough for all lives.. to live in abundance… he put a price to it.. Man fights for his rights but dare not look over his shoulder to think of the silent angels who in their own way have helped in this circle of life…
Strange an animal even in death has loads to offer man.. when we turn this statement around… man even in his death has nothing to offer the animal..
Respect life...

What about the white people who have been exterminated since the alleged evil aparthied regime was removed from power. Oh that's right. Exterminating white people is THE GOAL of well financed communist agitators such as care2 dot something.

Israel is not apartheid, you know why? Because south africa did not shoot little nigger children like the Israeli's shoot small Palestinian children. South Africa did not build gigantic walls separating whites from blacks, like Israel does. South Africa did not have WHITE only roads like Israel has JEW only roads.

Now that niggers are killing off the lions because they killed off the white farmers, so the only food source left is Africa's wildlife, how the fuck do you justify blaming whitey for that.

Oh that's right, this website is a jewish communist organisation chock full of clueless pieces of trash that never did a fucking thing useful for this world. This planet needs to regurgitate the useless eaters, mostly white liberals and jews who somehow reside in America and England.

Where did Margaret Mead go wrong? You people escaped being aborted?

Apparently the majority of the people in South Africa don't respest animal's lives.We have been reading about their tradition of tearing bulls apart with their bare hands.So this really doesn't surprise me.The humane people in this world must voice our disatifaction with their cruelty.

This is so sad and disgusting, the hunters and canned hunting industry should be hunt not the lions.

People have no moral conscience if they can participate in this cowardly blood sport. It is not sportsmanlike to gun down a lion who is defenceless and trapped in a cage. Any self-respecting hunter would never call this hunting (and I believe that hunting itself is barbaric and would best be outright banned). What is the most distressing is that this will impact on wild lion populations which are already under serious pressure.

South Africa need to be WHIPPED into shape with their callous attitude on animal welfare.

Why do people like Woodhead(Woody) even bother to comment of things that have nothing whatsoever to do with the news item listed...........why do we attract trash like him? Ah well - guess we just ignore him - and report him as INAPPROPRIATE - WHICH IT TO PUT IT MILDLY.
