Legelela Safaris – one of dozens of companies that targets Brit tourists with hunting packages – shared the photo on Facebook. The firm wrote: “Hard work in the hot Kalahari sun…well done. A monster lion.” Despite their grim pose, the couple – who run a taxidermy business – describe themselves as “passionate conservationists”, the Mirror reports. Pictured with another lion on the account, the caption reads: “There is nothing like hunting the king of the jungle in the sands of the Kalahari. “Well done to the happy huntress and the team…” When asked about the horrifying snaps, Mr Carter, of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, said: “We aren’t interested in commenting on that at all. It’s too political.” Experts say that the tragic lion was bred in captivity purely to be hunted by bloodthirsty tourists. Linda Park, boss of Voice 4 Lions in South Africa, insists the white lion pictured was “definitely captive”. And Eduardo Goncalves of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting adds: “It looks as though this lion was a tame animal killed in an enclosure, bred for the sole purpose of being the subject of a smug selfie. “This couple should be utterly ashamed of themselves, not showing off and snogging for the cameras.” [full article]
