This is a global event (15 countries and 50 cities with 191 organizers of lion marches) to raise awareness about:
Cub handling, posing with cubs for photos, petting cubs and why that is always abuse
Walking with lions (walking lions on leashes and letting people walk out into groups of sub adult lions, so the lions get used to people walking up within shooting distance)
Canned hunting (where lions are shot for a fee in cages)
Lion meat issues (all of these are connected)
530 registrants will "march" through Big Cat Rescue Read More
