Safari Tourism: Paying to Kill

YEAR: 2016 | LENGTH: 1 part (44 minutes)  |  SOURCE: 4CORNERS

description:

They’re the big game animals that symbolise Africa – lions, rhinos and elephants. And they’re top of the list for the big game hunters with deep pockets who travel to Africa to hunt and kill. This film takes you on a journey into the auction rooms and animal warehouses where these prized creatures are bought and sold. And into the darker world of illegal hunting where lions are tranquilised or partly domesticated to make them easier to shoot.
