These Lions Fill Me With Awe, Others See Them As An Entertaining Target
After yesterday’s post, it seemed appropriate to continue the lion theme with some images from my recent trip to Kenya. These lions, thank goodness, were wild and living life as they should: in the African wilderness.
I look at these majestic creatures in awe. I cannot understand the desire by some individuals to kill them as a form of entertainment. Can you?

Global March for Lions: On March 15, people in 58 countries around the world will be marching to raise awareness of the plight of South Africa’s lions and to shed light on the “canned lion” hunting industry.
is a legal practice in South Africa where lions are bred in captivity, only to be hunted and killed as trophies. Lion cubs are hand reared for the petting industry and when grown and accustomed to human contact, are confined (often drugged) and gunned down.
