The endangered African Lion is one of the most majestic creatures on our planet. The king of the jungle, lions are the only cats that live in family units, and they have been revered throughout history for their courage and strength. Lions once roamed most of Africa and parts of Asia and Europe. However, today they are found only in parts of sub-Saharan Africa, except for one very small population of Asian lions that survives in India’s Gir Forest. There are just 30,000 lions left on our planet, and sadly, many of them are kept in captivity without any chance of freedom.

With so few lions left, it is shocking that people continue to hunt them. The killing of the beloved lion, Cecilstunned the world, but Cecil was just one of more than thousands of lions that are killed every year, many of them in canned hunts. In canned hunts, lions are bred in captivity and then “released” into a closed pen just so that people can get a thrill by shooting them in short range.

The facilities that run these hunts claim that they are contributing to the conservation of the lion species by breeding these animals, but in reality, these animals are incredibly inbred and would, in fact, be extremely detrimental to the gene pool of wild populations. Not to mention, by raising these lions in captivity only so that hunters (the majority of which are Americans), can kill the animals isn’t exactly the spitting image of species protection.

In addition to this horrific industry, thousands of other lions and wild cats are held captive, either in the entertainment industry where they are often abused and neglected, such as in circuses, zoos, and parks. Or they’re captured from the wild and held in people’s backyards as exotic pets. In fact, there are more tigers in people’s backyards than there are in the wild! Don’t these animals deserve better?

This is how all lions should live.

This Stunning Photo Shows Us How All Lions Should Live

 

 

Between canned hunting, the exotic pet trade, and entertainment facilities, few lions have the chance to live the life that this lion does, while protected in Kenya’s Maasai Mara nature reserve. If we don’t act now and protect lions in the wild, scenes like this one above may only be seen in photographs.

Share this post and help raise awareness for the endangered lion. It is up to us to keep this amazing species wild and free!

I\\\'m so excited because my broken marriage has been restored & my husband is back after he left me and our 2 kids for another woman. After 8 years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. My Husband’s behaviors caused me to think maybe we were not meant to be together. It hurts to the bone when your life partner turns against you, making you sad instead of being your motivator, always engaging you in constant argument and confusion with the kids. The worst is him being unfaithful, seeing other women is like stabbing you in the back. Thank you for sharing your article about This Stunning Photo Shows Us How All Lions Should Live.

I\'m so excited.
My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
My name is Silvia Soulez
My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Goodluck can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr.Goodluck.

DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of [email protected] finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.
