THE NSPCA CHALLENGES THE CAPTIVE LION INDUSTRY
The African lion, a highly charismatic member of the megafauna of Africa, and one of the most loved and iconic animals of the world, including one of the biggest drawcards for travellers to Africa, is reduced to basically an intensively bred farmed animal and caged for human entertainment. The NSPCA is the largest animal welfare organisation in Africa, with the objective to serve and protect all animals, uplifting their welfare and ensuring that the protection they have under South African Law is upheld. Through extensive research and investigation, the NSPCA has compiled a comprehensive report on the cruelty behind the scenes in the captive lion and lion bone trade industry.
