For years, I have been deeply concerned about the plight of lions in South Africa.
Specifically, I have lobbied for an end to the barbaric captive-bred lion industry.
Last summer I published Unfair Game, in which I exposed the horrifying truth about what it really involves.
Captive-lion breeding operates under the umbrella of the respectable tourist trade, but in reality it has meant thousands of lions have been farmed and then exploited in the most cruel ways imaginable simply for profit – all the while risking human health as well.
