What is “canned hunting” …. here is the answer!!

Dear Horty, the post was such a wonderful one, that I did not want to add anything and just reblog it! Thank you for this wonderful and heartbreaking post! Lions and all the animals are very important for me and this post made me feel pain again! Thank you! It is my pleasure to reblog it!

It Is What It Is

~~June 10, 2014~~

canned hunt is a trophy hunt in which an animal is kept in a confined area, such as in a fenced-in area, increasing the likelihood of the hunter obtaining a kill. According to one dictionary, a canned hunt is a “hunt for animals that have been raised on game ranches until they are mature enough to be killed for trophy collections.”

“An estimated 8000 Lions bred in captivity”

Canned Hunting is the hunting of an animal, usually captive bred, that has been unfairly prevented from escaping the hunter, either due to physical or behavioral constraints (such as hunting within small fenced areas, deliberate injury of the animal prior to hunting, drugging or even just habituation to humans).

Canned hunting is prevalent in South African (and also the USA, the home of hunters).

Lions are captive bred to supply demand for this industry – this means…

  1. That’s horrible. Thank you for bringing attention to this.

  2. Never heard of this before. Barabaric. Where’s the sport (even if that were some sort of justification)? Or the risk and danger to the hunter (even if ditto).

    • There is no risk, no azart, no danger, this is unfair hunting when the animal is just a simple and available trophy! This is not fair. The hunt istelf is not fair because you hunt with gun, when the animal is armless in front of you. I hate hunting! Thank for your supporting comment!

  3. Sick people, that’s what we are!

  4. Dear Arlen, I’m afraid I couldn’t read the post. Just the title brought me to tears. Personally, I’d just as soon put the hunters in these areas WITH the lions (and without weapons) and see how much fun it still is for them. I despise people who abuse any creature and I despise these people who run these canned hunting “farms”. I know in my heart there is a special place in hell for them.

    Gosh, I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t read the article. I’d hate to think how I would have reacted if I had. I am so grateful for you and those like you who work for abused creatures. I thank you, Arlen, with all my heart. God bless you.

    • Thank you my darling, thank you so much! Godd bless all of us! I do not understand those “people”, they are not human, they are creatures from hell! Their place is in the hell and I am sure God will punish them for all this! I llove animals, I love them so much that I can not imagine my life without nature and animals and when I see such cruelty, such barbarism, I hardly keep tears! When will this stop?!!!!😦
      Linda, I appreciate your support, your attention, your deep and kind heart! You are amazing, my friend! Thanks for the LOVELY and INSPIRING comment!
