Many lions who are killed for "sport" in South Africa are captive-bred, meaning they are habituated to humans and are ultimately "easier" targets for trophy hunters. PETA has released video footage of a group of hunters ambushing a captive-bred lion resting under a tree. The lion roars and charges after he is shot and wounded by one of the hunters, and it takes four more shots by the hunter and his guides to kill him.
