WSF severs ties with PHASA over captive bred lion hunting policy reversal

from WSF

The Montana-based Wild Sheep Foundation, the international leader for the enhancement, conservation and restoration of wild sheep, has severed affiliation and sponsorship support with long-time partner, the Professional Hunters Association of South Africa. This follows PHASA's recent reversal of its 2015 policy condemning the practice of hunting captive-bred lions under controlled conditions. PHASA reversed this policy with a Constitutional change and a Resolution at the association's Annual General Meeting held in Kwa-Zulu Natal Nov. 22. WSF leadership attended the PHASA meeting and had repeatedly spoken in opposition to hunting captive bred lions as the practice has not been scientifically proven to enhance free-ranging populations or otherwise provide conservation benefits to wild lions and is contrary to the principles of fair chase hunting. more
