A very profitable business model, canned hunting is supported by externalizing costs via spin-off commercial enterprises that outright bilk tourists and naïve volunteers into hand-rearing these living targets, while further supplying the dark underbelly of international trade in lion parts and products. Amazingly, the industry is so popular that in 2012, in South Africa alone, it generated the equivalent of 70 million US dollars. Today, with my guest Chris Mercer, founder of the Campaign Against Canned Hunting (CACH), we alert you to help expose the cruelty and abuse to these lions, and the harm and threat this industry poses to the world’s remaining wild lions and conservation efforts to protect them. Become part of the Global March for Lions and ban canned hunting, wherever it exists. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
