Condemn The Killing of Cecil the Lion
In case you're unfamiliar with the killing of Cecil the Lion, here is a link to a NYTimes news article. http://www.nytimes.com/2015....ml?_r=0

Long story short, Cecil, a 13-year-old black maned lion was killed by an american big-game hunter within the country of Zimbabwe. After the Minnesota dentist was outed for his action, hes been forced in to hiding. People all over the internet and around the world are creating petitions and trying to prolong threatened species.

No matter how hunters try to defend their actions, its clear that the majority of people do not agree with the hunting of quickly receding species.

In order to condemn the killing of Cecil the lion and stop trophy hunters from killing near-extinct species, I'd like to recommend that you sign this petition. The more people that sign this and the more awareness that this petition creates, the better chance we have at allowing near-extinct species to repopulate and roam the land again.

Trophy hunting should be outlawed. It's one thing to hunt and then at least eat what you hunt, but to pay tens of thousands just to kill an endangered animal (in this case, a protected one in a sanctuary) is sadistic. If it's all for conservationism, how does helping to make a species extinct help conservationism? Why not just donate the money to the conservation group? The fact is, they pay for the sick thrill of killing a wild animal and then justify it that way.
