Going Wild with Kelly – Canned Hunting

Picture this:  You’re heading down to the lion park with your family and pay your entry fee. You get to sit with the cubs in a pen and play with them and let them roll around with you and purr and you can take your photos with them and post onto your social media.  You pet and cuddled a lion. You get loads of likes and comments on your social media accounts. Once you’re done you leave with your photos and your experience and off you head home from your trip to the lion park with a feeling of joy and happiness.  But what happens to those cubs when they grow up? Is it normal that so many cubs are tamed and are in such a small enclosure for your benefit?  In fact, why are cubs that young in a pen alone, without their mother?  Once they come of age, will they be released into the wild to fend for themselves being the tamed King of the Jungle?  Won’t being tamed get them killed?  
Today we look at canned hunting.  What exactly is canned hunting?
