As for the loss of Cecil the lion, Zimbabweans do not understand what the big fuss is all about when they hear that Americans are devastated over the killing of one lion when millions of their children die of starvation annually and not a word of it appears on mainstream media anywhere in the world. They are but a statistic on occasional UNICEF pamphlets. One mother with an 18 month old child weighing 6 lbs wants to know why Americans don’t focus on the children that die of starvation in Zimbabwe versus the loss of a lion which according to Zimbabwe law was part of their routine big game hunting industry.

It makes absolutely no sense to them since local villages where big game is killed are legally entitled to 80% of the meat (usually the only protein source they may taste all year).

Considering Zimbabwe is one of the poorest countries in the world, citizens there do not understand why Americans are so upset over the killing of Cecil but not the least concerned with the scores of children that die of starvation in Zimbabwe on a regular basis.

The United States has over 1,000+ “high fence” game resorts. Most refer to the industry as “canned hunting” no matter how small or large the square mileage.

Additionally, the federal government invests millions into the development of these “entertainment” businesses.
