PETITION: Stop ‘Canned Hunts’ of Factory-Farmed Animals Killed for Trophies in S Africa

ladyfreethinker.org

PETITION TARGET: SA Minister of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries, Barbara Creecy

Canned hunting is a grotesque industry in which hunters pay to kill endangered creatures confined to fenced-in enclosures with no way of escape. Facilities force-breed animals, steal young from their mothers, raise them in appalling conditions and profit from hunters who kill the animals for fun.

This abhorrent practice exploits animals and abuses them from the day they are born to the day they are slaughtered by paying killers.

Raised in factory farms, these animals spend most of their lives in tiny, crowded cages, often without water or adequate nutrition. Malnourished and deprived of natural behaviors, their short lives end when they are put into a fenced area to be shot with a crossbow or shotgun. Animals may be baited or drugged to make them an easy target.

Lions are big business in this industry, particularly in South Africa. Cubs as young as three days old are stolen from their mothers, bottle-fed and used in fake “sanctuaries,” where naïve volunteers pay to care for them under the pretense of conservation. Lion walks and lion petting are further avenues to profit from their suffering.

In reality, these beautiful creatures are forced to live in filthy conditions and often fall ill due to poor nutrition and stress. Once older, they are violated through forced impregnation and eventually killed for paid ‘hunts’ — if they survive that long. Many also suffer severe illnesses from inbreeding.

South Africa has around 200 lion breeding facilities containing an estimated 6000 big cats. There are three times more lions in captivity in South Africa than in the wild. Tigers and other exotic animals also fall victim to this ruthless trade.

Canned hunting does not benefit conservation. It is purely a money-making endeavor that supports abusing and murdering majestic animals for a quick thrill.

Sign this petition urging South Africa’s Minister of Environment, Forestry, and Fisheries Barbara Creecy to call for a ban on all canned and captive hunting in South Africa, saving thousands of animals from needless torture and cowardly slaughter.

I am a Victim of the Canned Hunting Industry

Great Cats of the "World"

……Look at me. Remember my Face….
My Beautiful mother was forced to breed many times in her life, so she could produce as many litter of cubs like me as possible.
I was taken away from her, when I was only a few days old….I cannot imagine her grief losing me, as I can only remember mine…
I got sick, I was stressed because of losing my mother, I was not fed properly, I lost some of my hair, and no one cared, Not even the tourists who came to see me, because if they knew the “truth” they would not have paid to hold me, to never let me have peace. All they wanted to do was hold me. I needed my mother , not them………
My life will consist of being patted, mauled, forced to be held, while camera flashes go off in my face over and…

The TMZ story has been updated with a video interview with Madison McConaughey.
