CECIL "USE IT OR LOSE IT" POLICY DRIVES ELEPHANT SLAUGHTER

The cruel death of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe is no accident. Hunting associations may be calling for prosecutions, but that’s not because this is a one-off case. It’s because they’ve been caught. According to the Guardian an Oxford University study was looking “into the impact of sports hunting on lions living in the safari area surrounding the national park. The research found that 34 of 62 tagged lions died during the study period. 24 were shot by sport hunters. Sport hunters in the safari areas surrounding the park killed 72% of tagged adult males from the study area.” Young elephant mourning at a matriarch's poached carcass, Kenya 2011 Photo: Dave Currey / EIA Zimbabwe, along with S
