This weekend SCI is putting on one of their biggest conventions at Vegas drawing in hunters from all over the world featuring hunting gears, taxidermy services and 600 permits to kill animals from 30 countries.
While the world thought the hunters would have their safari convention unopposed, a coalition of animal rights activist rallied outside the Mandalay Bay hotel Thursday to be a voice of reason exposing the lies SCI is telling the world.
The Humane Society was present avenging the death of the beloved Cecil the Lion killed by dentist Walter Palmer. Wendy Keefover from the Humane Society stated that “The outcry of Cecil has galvanized people around the world, and people are starting to understand how disgusting this practice is.” Another protester, Carrie LeBlanc, with Compassion Works International stated that hunting is a “ridiculous waste of life” especially against endangered species.
Brave group of people indeed!

The protesters are dedicated to rallying outside the whole this until this Saturday when they launch their multi site rally with 30 cities across the country.
The death of Cecil the lion has truly awaken animal lovers and started a wave of grassroot movement calling for justice and fairness for treatment of animals. With ralles like the March for Cecil this weekend and the DC rally with 20,000 people, Cecil2016, let’s hope all of these waves will bring about change.
