250 Emaciated Lions Found During Trophy Hunting Farm Raid

As a result of officials receiving photographs of starving lions in cages, a game farm in South Africa was raided. The farm breeds lions in order for them to eventually be killed by hunters.

The private hunting 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.

A German man who lives near the farm fortunately took photographs of a number of the farm’s 250 lions, then passed the photos on to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
For more information about the canned hunting industry, please watch the documentary expose’ Blood Lions.

“Every single day in South Africa at least two to three captive bred or tame lions are being killed in canned hunts. And hundreds more are slaughtered annually for the lion bone trade.”
