250 Emaciated Lions Found During Trophy Hunting Farm Raid

Thanks to one man’s activism, 250 lions were rescued from being killed by affluent trophy hunters.


t’s a lesser-known fact that the African lions’ numbers are diminishing rapidly due to persecution by livestock farmers, habitat destruction, and human greed which has led to trophy hunting. In effect, only 10,000-15,000 free-roaming African lions remain – a steep decline from 50,000 a decade ago.
Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for these facts to be overlooked by egotistical hunters who would prefer to slaughter lions for sport than preserve their species. As a result, trophy hunting farms have sprung up in many countries in Africa.
At least for one private hunting farm, it’s get-rich scheme is under wraps after a German individual spotted emaciated lions in cages and took pictures to alert the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The activist’s actions resulted in the farm being raided and 250 starving lions being rescued.
According to The Times, the farm is located in Alldays, a small town notorious for what is known as driven hunts during which hunters fire at animals from the back of a truck.
Little else is reported on the lions’ well-being or the breeders’ reprimand. However, you can learn more about the canned hunting industry by watching the documentary expose’ Blood Lions.
