Blood Lions – the documentary
This shocking and compelling one-off documentary takes you inside South Africa’s lucrative trophy hunting industry, showing in intimate detail how much money is made in breeding lions, and how the authorities and most professional hunting and tourism bodies have become complicit in allowing this industry to flourish.
Blood Lions exposes the truth behind the multi-million dollar lion hunting and breeding industry in South Africa. It follows acclaimed environmental journalist and safari operator Ian Michler, and Rick Swazey, an American hunter, on their journey to uncover the realities about the predator breeding and canned lion hunting industries in South Africa.
It is a story that blows the lid off claims made by these operators in attempting to justify what they do. Last year alone over 800 captive lions were shot in South Africa, mostly by wealthy international hunters under conditions that are anything but sporting.
Ian has been following this story since 1999, and he goes onto the breeding farms to witness the impacts that decades of intensive breeding is having on the captive lions and other predators.
Blood Lions is a compelling call to action and shows how you can get involved in a global campaign to stop lions being bred for the bullet.
Please note: this is the full length version of the documentary, the TV screenings of this are edited versions.
