"Excess lions"? Their existence is under threat mainly due to people. "There is no space left in Africa for them..."? Africa's huge!

I wonder! What will happen to the eco balance when the lions and other predators are gone? Which animals are the next to be eliminated for the sake of livestock? Will there be anything to graze? I wonder! Of course I signed the petition. Thanks Wendy girl and Paul Christian!

I think this is absolutely terrible. We are suppose to be protecting these animals and prize hunting still goes on like this. It should be stopped altogether. Thank you Wendy for sharing.

There are many good people on the planet but in general are we not the most greedy and selfish species on the planet? The ultimate invasive species is us and we destroy everything in our way. Well, I don't as I ache more respect for nature and animals but sadly I am stuck belonging to this species for which I feel no pride.

Thanks for posting, Wendy. Why don't we use the raffle money to provide birth control and education to humans so we stop overpopulating? Without human encroachment, wildlife would stand a chance!

Thank you all for noting this "story" -and signing the petition, , our objections and noise definitely helped get this sick "raffle " cancelled, - can you all really imagine what would have followed, had this gone ahead, =a raffle prize to- kill?
I am delighted that door has remained closed, We won this battle, but the "war" is still to be fought.- keep a watchful eye on those who kill for fun, !!!!!!!
