When wild animals are raised in captivity and freed in closed environments to be killed for trophy collections, we are facing canned hunting.
It is the result of a failure of government policy and is ferociously defended by wealthy vested interests. Canned hunting can only be abolished by a sustained campaign to raise awareness, to change the South African policy and to ban the import of lion and predator trophies in other countries.
CACH is widely researching the effects of canned hunting and debunking the myth of it being in any way sustainable. Yet a stronger action must be taken.
All sources of income of the canned hunting industry (that also consist of cub petting and even volunteer work) need to be challenged to cut off the supply of money and shut the industry down.Go to CACH’s website
