Q: I have seen and read numerous articles about your dedication and passion to help abused animals across the world, So thank you. We are also aware that you are trying to raise awareness to the barbaric industry of canned hunting in Africa and would you like to share with our readers about how they can help do this too?
A: I always believed our prime purpose in life is to help others and I have always found animals to have incredibly important role in my life and have been incredibly lucky in that I have been able to dedicate so much time to them.
My passion with wildlife was always immense, so much so I was very close last year to setting up my own wildlife reserve in France so that I could rescue neglected zoo wild animals, so when a colleague told me about a 13 year old Lion in Hwange National Park, whom was killed for sport by a hunter who paid around paid £55,000 to kill this majestic Lion I felt compelled to help change the laws.
Let me share with you the life of a Canned Lion and why it’s so important to sign our Petition below.
