Buzz Petition

The world was in an outrage when the glorious-maned Cecil the lion was brutally tortured and slowly killed during an infamous trophy hunt. Cecil brought the serious issue of trophy hunting into the public spotlight and has become some sort of a poster child for all other victims of trophy hunting. In addition to Cecil’s heartbreaking story, there have been numerous trophy hunt tragedies in the mass media that have highlighted the barbaric practice that must end now.

A petition on Care2 has been written to demand an end to trophy hunting, particularly in South Africa where the practice is common. Although the issue of conservation and saving endangered species is the obvious argument for an end to trophy hunting, the petition has an additional argument that appeals to those with financial motives. As the petition explains, wildlife watching in Africa drew in $34.2 billion in 2013, and it is estimated that one animal like Cecil could generate around $1 million from tourism in its lifetime, compared to the $55,000 that was paid by the trophy hunter who killed Cecil.

As the petition states, how will this profitable wildlife economy survive if all the animals are shot and killed by trophy hunters? These animals are worth far more alive than dead, and it is high time government officials step up and ban this vile practice that not only drastically affects biodiversity, but is not economically sound.

If you would like to see an end to trophy hunting, please take a moment to sign the petition addressed to South African President Jacob Zuma demanding a ban on trophy hunts.

And PLEASE share this with your network to increase support for this very important cause!

I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me anymore, So he packed out of the house and made me and the kids passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he has moved on with his life, but he promised to always check up on the kids from time to time which he never did for 7 months. So on a faithful day,as i was coming back from work,i meant an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it\'s has really worked for him too. i never believed in spell,but i was left with no choice cos i was so confused and frustrated,i took his advices.
