Thank you U.S. FISH and WILDLIFE SERVICE (FWS) for Sealing the Fate of The “African Lion”.
You have shown The World once again, where your compassion, and your priorities lie..
The Almighty Buck is going to help Wipe out the Remaining of this Species………………………………………………………………………………..
Safari Club International For Immediate Release: October 27, 2014
Major Setback for Anti-Hunting Efforts; FWS Rejects Attempts to Stop Lion Hunting;
Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) rejected the claim that the African lion merited listing as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act. After a long and comprehensive review of the species status, which included information from the foremost lion researchers in the world, the FWS concluded that the African lion simply is not on the brink of extinction and did not merit listing as an endangered species.
“SCI raised over $ 1 million for SCI Foundation to combat the listing of the African lion as endangered. We will continue to ensure funding is available for science – based conservation of the African lion in the
future,” said SCI President Craig Kauffman. “SCI is proud of our Foundation which has won this battle against anti-hunting activists.”
*Also keeping in mind that : https://www.thedodo.com/african-lion-threatened-specie-785256110.html < states that : the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) proposed listing African lions as “THREATENED” which falls under 3 Catagories
. critically endangered (CR)
. endangered (EN)
. vulnerable (VU)
Not forgetting of course this very important stipulation
>>>>This rule, if made final, would implement the Federal protections provided by the Act for this species. However, the proposed rule under section 4(d) of the Act will establish a permitting mechanism for the importation of sport-hunted lion trophies, provided that the lions originate from countries with a scientifically sound management plan for African lions <<<<
THIS MAY BE YOUR ONE AND ONLY CHANCE TO SPEAK OUT ON BEHALF OF THIS SPECIES. I IMPLORE YOU TO PLEASE ASK THE U.S. FISH & WILDLIFE SERVICE TO ISSUE A COMPLETE BAN ON THE IMPORT OF LION TROPHIES TO THE U.S.A.
