009 - Terminating the hunting of captive-bred lions (Panthera leo) and other predators and captive breeding for commercial, non-conservation purposes | 2016 Congress portal | Trophy Hunting: It's Impact on Wildlife and People | Scoop.it
NOTING the prohibition by the South African Government on the capture of wild lions for breeding or keeping in captivity;

CONCERNED that the continued breeding of lions for the specific purpose of pseudo-hunts, also referred to as 'canned lion hunting' or 'canned lion shooting', by sectors of the wildlife ranching industry in South Africa under the guise of sustainable utilisation has escalated;

FURTHER CONCERNED by the limited scope of legal options by the South African Government to terminate 'canned lion shooting';

AWARE that most lion hunts in South Africa are conducted in enclosed areas or using captive-bred lions;

MINDFUL that professional hunting associations within South Africa and internationally oppose the practice known as 'canned shooting', where the animal is physically unable to escape from a restricted enclosure and/or is captive bred and mentally disinclined to escape due to humanisation as a result of hand-rearing, petting of young animals and close human contact in captive facilities;
