    This story has made the front page of the second biggest newspaper in the UK today. It attacks hunters but actually the only incidence of hunting is a 'green hunt' where the client shoots the lion with a tranquilizer. A vet then comes to 'save' it by....tranquilizing it!

    Obviously us hunters have united in opposing 'canned' lion hunts and farming for bones for the Asian medicine market.

    Sadly there is no organisation in the UK I know of who will respond to this article to defend legal, ethical hunting, as the Daily Mail is big online/has it's own TV channel in the US I wonder if anyone knows if the SCI or similar could respond?

    Thanks from the UK
