Zimbabwe is the country where Cecil the lion was killed, starting an international movement against the American dentist who shot him. Cecil’s lion comrades and cubs at Bubye Valley Conservancy, Zimbabwe’s largest lion conservancy, is considering a culling of 200 lions. Telling the public that there is an excess of lions, the park plans to kill 200 lions to curb its population.
The conservancy boasts having over 500 lions on its site, the largest number in Zimbabwe’s wildlife areas.
Blaming the lack of hunters visiting Zimbabwe to help curb lion numbers as they call the “Cecil Effect”, the park will first seek to give 200 lions away to other lion sanctuaries before being forced to kill 200 innocent lions.

Whether their claims of the lion population is attacking the antelopes and other animals, they should use more humane option instead of killing them. In the 1940s, there were thought to be as many as 450,000 lions on Earth, but today they are classed as “vulnerable,” with numbers feared as low as 20,000.
With assholes like Walter Palmer killing them for kicks, animal lovers must rise and start telling everyone that trophy hunting is no longer acceptable and must be ceased. This summer, the nation’s biggest rally will take place at Washington DC. Over 20,000 are expected to make a giant voice to stop trophy hunting. This event has word that a few media agencies will be present and will make a huge splash across the world.
