Jacques, a hunter, shared a picture of him that showed a dead lioness.

He said:

NEEDED to hunt LIONS. After putting on all my layers the hunt began. Holy crap that’s a lion track! After seemingly endless tracking in sand and thorns, Holy crap that’s a lion tail! Four days of amazing experiences and close calls later my dream was fulfilled. Using my PHs 375HH with 270 grain softs was a piece of cake.

One person said that a hunter needs to take 5 shots from a powerful Mossberg rifle to kill a buffalo.

The hunter said, “they are extremely tough guys.”

The website that offers these cruel hunting trips is the Discount African Hunts, which is extremely popular with people from the United Kingdom.

My client from the Western US took this awesome lion with a bow this morning in South Africa. Well done!

Talking about hunting a lion, the Discount African Hunts, said:

Every lion/lioness is different. Some will run and run while others will make a stand rather quickly. This hunt is much more exciting than a traditional lion hunt on bait where you just sit in a blind and wait to ambush the lion. This is the most exciting way to hunt a lion.

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting released a statement about the cruel killings, where they said:

Humans have no right to take the life of an animal for recreation. Animals experience suffering and pain when they are hunted for trophies. Killing endangered wildlife for pleasure only helps push them even further towards extinction.

The website did not release any statement about its offerings.
