Big Lion in a Wide Open Grassland

The wildlife paedophiles say that the reality of Captive Breeding of Lions is full of stories about sick and scrawny lions living in bad circumstances and in small cages.  And that these are the stories that lion farmers hide from the public. Here are the pictures that tell you the lies that these people speak.

Where is the small cage in this great lion’s life?

A veterinarian once told me – when determining the health-condition of any animal.  LOOK at the animal.  If you can see that it is hurting or skinny or sickly then it probably is being badly treated – and it will need a vet.  If it isn’t any of those things then it is clearly healthy; happy and thriving.

Look at this big lion.  Which of the two do YOU think this lion is?  Is it a good example of what the paedophiles tell the public.  Or is it the opposite. LOOK at it and you will immediately see that this lion is full of health, vim and vigour. It is one of the CBL male ‘breeders’ and it is treated like the king that it is.

The public also need to understand that when a lion is being fed well, it will sleep for 20 hours out of every 24.  Which is why lions don’t really need gigantic paddocks.   The Lions of the Captive Breeding Lion Industry by law, all live in “adequate space”.

I am NOT a ‘trophy hunter’ - and never have been. I am not involved in the trophy hunting safari business. I am also not a game rancher. But I have ‘administratively controlled’ professional hunters and safari outfitters in my capacity as a government game warden. I am an 80 year old ex-game warden with 60 years of continuous experience in hands-on wildlife management, and national park management, in Africa (1959 to 2019). In breakdown, I have 24 years experience in the management of national parks in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe - and in the management of the wild animal populations that lived inside those national parks; one year as the Chief Nature Conservation of the Ciskei in South Africa; three years as Director of the Bophuthatswana National Parks Board in South Africa; and I worked for three years as a professional hunter in the South African Great Karoo (taking foreign hunters on quests for plains game trophies). I discovered, however, that professional hunting was not my forte. I worked as an investigative wildlife journalist for 30 years in South Africa. I have written fifteen books and hundreds of magazine articles on the subject of wildlife management and big game hunting in Africa. Five of my books are university-level text books on wildlife management. I am a university-trained ecologist; was a member of the Institute of Biology (London) for 20 years; and was a registered chartered biologist for the European Union for 20 years. I have VAST experience in the “management hunting” of elephants, buffaloes, lions, leopards and hippos (as part of my official national park work in the control of problem animals); and I pioneered the capture of black rhino in Zimbabwe’s Zambezi Valley (1964 - 1970). My university thesis was entitled: “The Factors Affecting the Survival and Distribution of Black Rhinos in Rhodesia”. Look at my personal website if you want any further details about my experience:
