What concerns me about this is that the psyche of those that hunt “big game” is such that if, for example the lion farms were shut down they would poach from the wild. This would threaten animals in the wild more as the farms would go out of business if they had no legitimate trade.
That we even have to think like that about endangered species is pretty **bleep**ing sad. People would rather satisfy their own desire for hunting for pleasure than preserve a species and possibly an entire ecosystem. :smileysad:
