The Controversial Lion Hunt in Umbabat – South Africa

Study  (“The Controversial Lion Hunt in Umbabat – South Africa,” 16 July 2018) and petition into the trophy hunt that killed Skye – baited and lured to his death on 7 June 2018 from the ‘protection’ of the Kruger National Park:

Despite limitations, the practice of trophy hunting lions seems, too often, to targets males in their reproductive prime so that the hunter can get a better trophy. This can lead to elevated infanticide and reduced reproduction by the removal of too many adult males and this sadly leads to a rapid population decline.”
