Should we condone the Killing of Cecil the Lion? I’m seeing a lot of fury and sadness around the death of Cecil the Lion. As an activist for environmental protection and health, of course this was upsetting. But I have to speak frankly and say, this event was something I could learn from. I knew tha tI oculd not judge this man. Why? Simply put, how could I judge this man for killing a Lion, when I, when needed, I have eaten meat.
Does this not contribute to the mass killing of animals around the world. Are fish, cows and chickens less equal to an endangered Lion. Has humanity become so indiffernt to eating meat that the death on millions of animals worldwide is okay, but the death of a lion is not.
Okay so many can say, this lion is endangered. Okay fair enough. Why are there none left? Well there are a few individuals that feel killing an animal is okay. For sport.
Okay, so the death of the millions, of animals, happens each day. This occurs simply. For food. To survive.
This is truth for many on the planet at this time. But can I draw attention to the reference and lack of concern to the words “kill” and “survive”. Do you want to be part of this reality? Can humanity leap beyond this consciousness to “birth” and “thrive”? Hell yes.
I’m not saying don’t eat meat. Although this is where humanity is headed whether you like it or not. Only you can make that choice. I’m not saying slaughtering a Lion for sport is okay. However, there is a deep lesson for all of humanity.
