So the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service gave the African Lion an early Christmas gift this year and will officially “list —two lion subspecies, one native to India and central and western Africa, and the other to eastern and southern Africa—as endangered and threatened, respectively”.
In addition, there will be”a special rule to ensure that trophies are not imported into the U.S. unless they are from countries with a management plan for lions that has been approved by the U.S. government”.
You can check this article over at the Born Free USA website entitled “U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Announces Final Rule on African Lions!” Born Free has been working on this issue for the last four years. What I think needs to be added is Thank you Cecil!
