UPDATE: Lord Ashcroft’s book UNFAIR GAME was submitted to South Africa’s Department of Environment’s High Level Panel (HLP) back in June 2020. Appointed by the South African Minister of the Environment, Ms Barbara Creecy, the HLP was established to review policies, legislation and related practices on the management, breeding, hunting, trade and handling of elephant, lion, leopard and rhinoceros. To this extent, Lord Ashcroft took the decision to submit UNFAIR GAME to the panel with the objective to highlight the atrocities of lion farming in order to get it banned.
Lord Ashcroft wrote a personal letter on 7th October that was tabled with the HLP. Please click here to read it. The battle continues.
