Why we're marching:
We're marching to expose the horrific canned hunting industry, a despicable injustice against lions.

What is canned hunting?
- It's the cruel practice of hunting an animal in an enclosed space without any chance of escape. The torture of a canned lion begins as a cub and continues through each stage of the life cycle.
- Cubs are torn from their mothers soon after birth and kept in cub-petting zoos.
- Ignorant volunteers pay for the "privilege" to "care for" the cubs, all destined to be killed in an enclosed camp where they will have no way of escape.
- Lions are often shot numerous times to prevent "spoiling" the "trophy" with a shot in the head, which will be mounted on a foreign wall.
- Lion bones are then exported to Asia for bogus medicine, all for top dollar.

We will call on our governments to ban the deplorable Canned Hunting Industry. We will raise awareness to educate the rest of the world regarding every stage of the life-cycle of torture of a canned lion – the world needs to know and stop supporting the cub-petting experience – the first steps of untold misery for cubs ripped away from their mothers soon after birth. The fraudulent luring of ignorant volunteers who pay for the “privilege” to “care for” the cubs – all destined to be killed in an enclosed camp where they will have no way of escape. Often shot numerous times to prevent "spoiling" the trophy with a shot in the head, which will be mounted on a foreign wall and the bones exported to Asia for bogus medicine - all for top dollar.

In the run-up to the march (and during), we will support the work of Chris Mercer and Bev Prevan - Campaign Against Canned Hunting - for more information on their work, see our website - everything you need to know is on this very important and informative site.
