South Africa: massacre of lions

Posted in 07/11/2013


Hundreds of lions are sacrificed in South Africa so that their bones are transformed in fake sex potions, which are exported to Asian countries. Due to the lack of lions – there are less than ten thousand in the wild in Africa -, it has been created an industry of reproduction of these felines, to obtains more bones to prepare the potions.

South African Government did not take any attittude towards this. Organization AVAAZ is promoting a petition to raise one million signatures and ask President Zuma not to allow this massacre of the Jungle King.
