Good news for all animal lovers!
Sylvester the lion has been located and tranquillized. Unlike his brother Mohawk which has been mercilessly gunned down by park rangers who were too cheap to use a tranquilizer dart, Sylvester was tranquilized and transported to a sanctuary park. When inquired about euthanizing, SANParks’ Wanda Mkutshulwa said that statements made about Sylvester being put down were premature.
Word from our Sponsors
“At this point we are still considering a range of options available to us. One of them being to return him to the park and strengthen areas that need to be strengthened to keep him inside the park.” SANParks
This is a sigh of relieve for all animal lovers as Sylvester the Lion was a mini-celebrity in Cape town, just like how Cecil was in Zim. Deep down, we know that the parks can’t lift a finger against Sylvester because they know the world’s watching. The hashtag #DONTKILLSYLVESTER was trending on social media with over thousands of people calling for the free roaming lion to be taken to a sanctuary instead of euthanization.
We know that there is power in the people and we must put it to use.
This summer, the world will be gathering at Washington DC to make a loud ROAR to protest unethical treatment of animals including canned hunting, drive hunting, trophy hunting and other forms of cruelty toward animals.
