Motion text

That this House condemns the practice of canned lion hunting in South Africa; notes that an estimated 1,000 lions annually are bred specifically to be killed in unethical canned hunts; denounces the barbaric treatment and conditions the lionesses and cubs are subjected to before they reach maturity; further notes with concern that canned hunting was banned in 2006 but successive legal appeals have allowed the breeders to continue making money whilst the ban is suspended; acknowledges the work of charities such as Born Free that have been fiercely campaigning for the matter to be addressed with urgency; and calls on the South African government to commit to enforcing the 2006 legislation.
