Minister Creecy railroaded by animal rights extremists
Ivo Vegter writes: It was almost inevitable that a minister with no experience of conservation or environmentalism would get railroaded by the animal rights lobby. There is little time to save Creecy – and 8 000 innocent lions – from its clutches.
South Africa is set to prohibit the captive breeding of lions, kill
off at least 8 000 supposedly ‘captive’ lions, will stop lobbying CITES
to legalise the international trade in rhino horn, and will move away
from private rhino populations in favour of returning them to the tender
mercies of government. Read Ivo Vegter's realistic take on the High Level Panel on prominent species HERE
