Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Born Free Events 2015

Ban Canned Hunting Demonstration (LONDON)

Date: Friday 13th March

Time: 11am until 1pm

Location: North Terrace, Trafalgar Square, London

Guest Speaker: Dominic Dyer (Care for the Wild, Born Free)

Organiser/Speaker: Paul Tully (Campaign Against Canned Hunting, Walking For Lions)

Following last years successful protest march calling for a ban to canned hunting, this years demonstration will take place on a Friday to capture the attention of the South African Embassy and for a protest letter to then be handing directly to the SA embassy, calling for a ban to the deplorable industry known as 'canned lion hunting'.

One of the critical awareness issues we need to affect this terrible practice is around cub petting, with thousands of tourists & volunteers led to believe that the lion cubs they pet and care for are orphaned, when in fact these very cubs are taken away from their mother weeks, often days after giving birth - the cubs are then immediately offered to tourists to pet & cuddle and cared for by the volunteers. Everyone who participates in this is led to believe these same lions will one day be released into the wild or reserve to live out their days, this sadly a lie.

Please join us on Friday 13th March in Trafalgar to raise awareness over canned lion hunting. Importantly though, please also take up our fight.
