IFP says NO to Captive Lion Breeding

About Lions, Bones & Bullets

Lions, Bones and Bullets is an award-winning documentary made in South Africa, which follows the journey of Penguin South Africa author, Richard Peirce, as he investigates the captive lion breeding industry. The film offers a valid appraisal of this ‘industry’, based on an informed, fact-based investigation.

In his recorded introduction, Peirce said that he believes South Africa has a special responsibility as a key guardian of many of the world’s iconic species.

The IFP believes that with concerted uniformity of purpose, South African legislators – across party lines – will rise to this challenge. South Africa must support international conservation, not only by ensuring the survival of iconic species, but also by setting an example for other nations to follow.

The great freedom fighter, Mahatma Gandhi, whose formative years were spent in South Africa, once famously declared, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

"The lion is regarded as the king of the animals and that is why for instance the Zulu people address their King as ‘The Lion’ and King’s children as ‘the cubs of the Lion"

Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, President Emeritus

"The IFP’s official policy towards any form of captive-bred lion farming and/or hunting is that the practice remains an abhorrence and stain on Brand South Africa and must be abolished with all due haste by government. [Lions, Bones and Bullets] not only underlines the validity of this policy but additionally, clearly demonstrates the need for it."
