A global ban on tiger bone sales has traders hunting a new prize ~ the majestic lions. Lions are farmed under appalling conditions in South Africa for “canned hunting“, where rich tourists pay thousands to shoot them through fences.
Now experts say lion bones from these killing farms are being exported to phony ‘medicine’ makers in Asia for record profits. Trade is exploding and experts fear that as prices rise, even wild lions~ with only 20,000 left in Africa ~ will come under poaching attack.
