Petition Ban Wild Animal Trophy’s entry into the UK
Ban Trophy Hunters bringing their murdered animals heads and skins into the UK. These creatures are being ‘hunted’ in ‘the wild’ for pleasure with considerable cruelty. The animals have no chance as the ‘hunts’ are set up by the land owners pruely for profit and the satisfaction of the most cruel.
A lion suffered incredible cruelty for at least 10 hours, severely wounded and slowly dying.
Clearly, although the wound was severe, the arrow had missed the vital organs or arteries that would have caused rapid blood loss and a relatively quick death.
Certainly, the lion was so incapacitated that in all those hours he'd been able to move only 350 meters from the place where he was shot.
Judging from the events described the injured lion most likely was killed 10/12 hours after being wounded.
