Recently, a German multi-millionaire named Rainer Schorr ignited a global outrage when he paid $60,000 to kill Africa's biggest elephant. He later posed with his 'trophy' without any remorse for his actions. This was merely a few short weeks after American dentist, Walter Palmer shelled out $50,000 to shoot and kill Cecil the lion. Cecil was beloved by tourists and locals in Zimbabwe. Palmer also showed no remorse as he posed with the once majestic lion. 

Although the global community was outraged, their actions remain perfectly legal. For many years, groups like LionAid and White Lion Trust, as well as countless others have been advocating for the protection of big cats and other wildlife. educating the world about the dwindling global lion population, they are still not a protected species. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Stephen Travis, President of ProtectingAfricanLions.org about new efforts to globally ban canned hunting. Stay tuned.
