Great news for lion lovers as France has just announced a public ban on lion trophies. France has been known for importing around 100 lion trophies on an annual basis but this number will be dropping to 0 as authorities cease issuing permits showing their support against trophy hunting.
The news has brought about joy for many European non profits especially UK-based charity Lionaid that is currently campaigning the UK government to implement a UK version of CECIL Act. many animal activists hope that this would start a domino effect among EU nations as more and more people everywhere are are taking a stand against trophy hunting and protesting at the local government.
