Today’s landmark decision was reached in the High Court in the matter NSPCA vs Department of Environmental Affairs. The decision is with regard to the South Africa’s controversial lion bone trade. The trade of lion bone in 2017 and 2018 was ruled unlawful and unconstitutional . This judgement reiterates the 2016 Constitutional Court judgement. We celebrate the ruling and we must now work towards shutting down this industry which harbours approximately 14000 lions in captivity.
