Canned Hunting


Story Details

It’s termed 'Canned Hunting' - the description of a particularly brutal industry which breeds thousands of lions for one purpose only… so that they can be shot by tourists as trophies.

“... these animals, in many circumstances, raised in what are the equivalent of factory farms, they are then released into a small area and shot as an allegedly trophy prize, but honestly it's not fair, it's not humane, it's not 21st Century and on my watch it's not acceptable,” says Greg Hunt, the Minister for the Environment on Australia’s ban on imported lion body parts.

The Australian Government has already banned Rhinoceros body parts from being imported... now they're extending the ban but what will the regulations achieve?"
