If these darn 'trophy hunters' would use my method, there wouldn't be a problem; the biggest concerns the hunters would have is getting the animal focussed against an ideal background in their telephoto lenses before tripping their camera shutters, and avoiding being attacked by other resident wildlife while setting up their 'ultimate trophy shots'. A life sized wall image of a pride of lions in their native Africa beats a mangy head on a wall mount!

Fred your post is truly Ab Fab I sent you a star but your brilliant comment is meritricous of a 1,000 stars. Donald trump/dumps sons went to Africa for their lion trophies, does not say anything good about them nor any male who does this kind of wanton killing. All men are males, but killing any innocent animal does not make them a MAN!

These people are so defensive , I visited a hunting site a few years ago and asked why they do it . The responses were really violent ,surprised they didn't find my home and bomb it . I was quite polite and said just a few words---I was shocked at how over sensitive ,these insensitive ****** are. I felt horrible for quite some time ,I felt abused and threatened so I don't think they would ever listen to anyone Else's point of view.

I am a passionate lion lover,and this horrifies me!! I cant imagine Africa without a single lion,or the world,and i dont want my children to grow up asking what is a lion???!!! These gorgeous creatures deserve our respect... for without the king of the jungle,is there a jungle??? What an absolute tragedy it would be to lose these most majestic awe inspiring animals.What shame on the human race.

OMG - I have never heard of 'canned hunting' before. They can actually shoot Dad, Mom or Baby??? They should be totally ashamed of themselves for shooting an animal in a cage with no way to defend themselves!!

Yes, I signed and shared. They need stop this since they are an endangered species!! This makes me so sad...
