The biggest threat to African lions isn’t trophy hunters, it’s their lack of value to local people
Oxford University

It is a very interesting piece, an eye opener. One statement that caught my attention about lions is that “ They are a very real danger to local people’s families and their livestock — very few of us would be happy having lions roaming around and threatening us, especially with no means of protecting ourselves”. That is one of the key things especially if lions attack livestock, livestock which are a form of socio-economic capital and livelihoods for families, it is most a livelihood conflict which has many dynamics. In southern Africa actually it is the elite that provide gateways to these trophy hunting's, locals are are victims o both lions and elite. The lion killing culture is dominant in east Africa what do you say of culture in Southern Africa.
