Farm raised African Lion in the USA for human consumption? How and why is this possible? Zebra, Wild Board, Black bear, Beaver, Antelope, Camel -- the list goes on -- the raising or capture and killing of exotic animals for consumption is unnecessary and unacceptable in today's endangered environment (check out all the species listed and the "Trappers Wanted" appeal at the bottom of the website). Many of these animals are becoming rare and headed toward extinction in the wild, and deserve protection -- they don't belong on a dinner plate.
I just found out about the market for exotic meats through a local Asian market, and when searching on the net, was shocked and dismayed to find many others in business. I find it offensive and heartbreaking that anyone would raise or trap these animals and sell them for profit and human consumption.
I am making a compassionate appeal to get the word out about these markets, make our disapproval heard loud and clear, and force these markets to remove these exotic species from their inventory. And boycott any businesses that support these markets and promote the consumption of exotic meats, especially African Lion!
