This is why we need to work hard to have the Lion put on the Endangered Species List ASAP and WITHOUT EXCEPTIONS for TROPHY HUNTERS.
It was just brought to our attention that this Exotic Meat Shop is using Cecil’s picture to advertise Lion meat for sale and even sells T-Shirts with Shameless statements. They even state with arrogance that they can sell the meat because the Lion isn’t on the Endangered Species List. Therefore it’s not against the law in the U.S. This is their web site : http://www.exoticmeatmarkets.com/lionmeat.html
Where is this happening? Asia? Africa? …Right here in the United States of America. African lions are bred and hunted in Texas. Here’s an article from Born Free USA documenting the practice : http://www.bornfreeusa.org/a9d_hunts.php
We need to work hard to get the Lion Listed as endangered and we need to STOP Congress from gutting away at the Endangered Species Act of 1973 in favor of Trophy Hunters. If not, we will never be able to protect the Lion and other endangered animals from Trophy Hunters and Exotic Meat Markets.
