Victory! France Becomes First Country in Europe to Ban Lion Trophies


Animal advocates are celebrating another huge victory for wildlife with an announcement that France will no longer allow hunters to bring their lion trophies home with them.

The decision follows the tragic death of Cecil the lion, which stirred international outrage, and was announced by France’s Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, Ségolène Royal, after a screening of the documentary Blood Lions at the European Parliament last week.

The film exposes the dark side of the captive breeding and canned hunting industry in South Africa and brings to light the many problems that come with the continued exploitation of these big cats for profit, along with the lies that continue to be told to the public in an attempt to support the idea that it’s all being done in the name of conservation.
