News has been brought to my attention from the Endangered Species Coalitation that restraunts throughout this country is using African Lion meat. The ESC and the International Fund for Animal Welfare are two groups that I know that are trying to pressure the US Fish and Wild life to add the Africian lions on the list just as they did for the Asian lions.
This links was sent to me by the ESC, please check them out and let's help these animals.
Dear Fish and Wildlife Service
The African lion should be placed on the endangered species act.
It is appalling that lion meat is being sold in American restraunts when there is only about 35,000 left.
The Asian lion is placed as endangered, the African lion should also get a chance.
Please help stop this practice by protecting the African lion as well.
