Global March For Lions 2014 - Big Cat Rescue. On March 15th, 15 countries and 62 cities with over 250 organizers, marched 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)

581 registrants marched through Big Cat Rescue to meet our lions and other wild cats and took action to save lions by paw-sing at the end to be taped asking their lawmakers to "march the Big Cat & Public Safety Protection Act through Congress."

The event helped people understand the link between paying to play with a cub in this country and lions being slaughtered for their fur, bones and meat, here and in the wild.
