South Africa has taken steps to end its multimillion-dollar lion-breeding industry, which supplies cubs for tourism, lions for trophy hunts, and bones for traditional medicine https://t.co/JjksJ0zo3o

@NatGeo About time!! A ridiculous idea. Stop trophy hunting and save the habitats for these animals and they have a chance

@NatGeo I have mixed feelings/thoughts on this. 1.) Who else is breeding lions just to put back into the wild? 2.) Won't those looking for bones and trophies just keep doing so? 3.) (I'm not condoning it) I Want to know how this will actually help.

@NatGeo Did I understand it wrong but about 8 thousand lions in captivity are said to be sacrificed? Would not be better to relocate them to possible interested zoos across the globe, then, for example? Even because it is an endangered species... @PantheraCats

@NatGeo How about us humans stopping our breeding industry and start giving these lion's and the other animals they hunt room to do what they do naturally 🤔

@NatGeo We can stop breeding and killing lions, but what about breeding, hunting and killing fish and plants?!🤔
