On this show Adam Roberts came on to report about the growing practice of lion meat consumption. Roberts, Executive VP, Born Free USA, described many problems related to the practice, including the obvious animal cruelty issues as well as public health and safety concerns. Also, there is a significant element of deception and outright fraud concerning the product; no good regulation of this fringe industry exists and meat advertised as lion may be something else.
Please take a look at Born Free USA – they are doing great work on behalf of animals around the world. Roberts also serves as President of the Board of Directors, Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, another great organization.
