    has decreased by 90% in the past 50 years. Now I'm not saying I want to come across a Lion on the street, but I do enjoy knowing they exist in the world. What will our world be like when they, like so many other species, disappear? It certainly can't be for the better.

    And bears.

    Oh My!


    To be serious, they are in areas with rapid human population growth, they require huge hunting territories. I am not going to tell some african family that because we in the America find big kitties cute they have to put their lives at risk or starve

    It is a very sad fact that within the next 40 years or so almost all major carnivores left on the planet will be in wild animal preserves. They will be extinct in the wild.
