Below is what MP for Clwyd West David Jones says about lion hunting, I could not agree more with him, but why then does he support the barbaric and disgusting sport of fox hunting? practised by himself, (as a member of the Denbighshire hunt) and many of his Conservative contemporary’s?
The Conservative MP said it was “astonishing” that the “despicable sport of hunting lions and other animals, for trophies is still allowed.”
Mr Jones secured a debate to raise concerns about the decimation of lions.
He denied that “trophy hunting somehow contributes to sustaining the species” and called for the UK Government to do more to stop it and encourage “strictly scientifically based conservation programmes.”
