funnywildlife: Zambia bans hunting of big cats Zambia has announced a ban on hunting lions and leopards, saying the numbers of big cats are decreasing too quickly. Sylvia Masebo, the country’s tourism minister said they did not have enough of the cats for hunting purposes. “The cats are gone, and no amount of convincing from any sector or group will convince me otherwise,” she said She said that Zambia does not have adequate stocks of cats such as leopards and lions hence the decisions to ban the hunting of the species. Lions are found in all of Zambia’s major parks, but their numbers are limited. The total population is thought to be between and 2,501 and 4,649. The ban comes as conservationists warned that wildlife populations now face a greater threat from poaching than at any time since the 1980s.
