A volunteer feeds lion cubs at Boskoppie Lion and Tiger reserve on August 7 2015 in Kroonstad. South Africa. The farm has about 100 lions, some tigers and a few jaguars. South Africa has hundreds of breeding farms for lions and many of the animals are sold to hunting companies that use them for canned hunting. There are about 8000 lions in captivity and only around 2000 in the wild in South Africa. (Photo by: Per-Anders Pettersson)
