Cecil the Lion…I have been following this story through Wildlife at Risk, an organization that focuses on saving wildlife in Africa, and today, as the news broke that it was an American that killed this animal for sport, for a trophy on his wall, to stroke what must be a shitty ego, to lie…well, let’s just say I wanted to add to the media fury that is now taking place this morning.
First let me say that I am not against hunting for the sake of food and conservation, but this hunting for sport or trophy hunting I just don’t understand.
I will jump in with the bandwagon here and agree that there should be a law banning trophy hunting and it should be called Cecil’s Law.
Thank you Cecil for bringing the business of trophy hunting to the mainstream…as animal lover and conservationist let me be one of the first American’s to apologize to you, for our lack of understanding, lack of attention to this issue, lack of education, and just plain pompous attitude towards nature and all it is.
I do not have a credit for this picture, I got it off Wildlife at Risk’s Facebook page.
