  1. Frankly I think its horrible to even want to “hunt” a lion like this. I my opinion this is harvesting not hunting. On the other hand this is a way to preserve lion genetics, stimulate the local economy, and keep land from being developed. I feel the same way about the bulls in Spanish Bull Fighting, there’s nothing romantic about it. On the other hand all the bull is eaten, they are preserving the genetics of majestic animals and using land to raise bulls and not put in one crop olive orchards that spreading disease to the rest of the olives. Casting stones and all that.
