Stop the Sale of African Lion Meat

I interrupt my Masai Mara posts to bring you an important message. I just found out about a restaurant in Illinois that is selling African Lion meat! This is absolutely absurd and highly irresponsible. Please join me in protest by asking them to STOP the sale of lion meat.

I've created an online petition that you can sign here:


Want to help? You can pass this along to family and friends and ask them to sign. Post it to Facebook. Tweet it, email it. Raising awareness about this will put pressure on the restaurant to stop selling the meat of an endangered animal.

UPDATE: The owners of this restaurant were convicted in 2003 of killing and selling exotic big cats that included tigers and leopards. Apparently they didn't get the message because they're still selling this meat.

As an African lion conservationist and someone who cares about their future, I'm outraged that these four "men" have been convicted of these actions before and have gone right back to doing this. 

Please - if you care about the future of this iconic species and don't want to see the African lion become extinct, sign the petition and pass it along for others to sign. Call the restaurant and tell them to STOP selling African lion meat. It's simply not necessary and is contributing to the lion's extinction by creating a market for lions to be sold on the black market.

Thank you!


Animals Matter. Lions Matter.
