'Canned' lion hunting to stay

South Africa court rules in favour of hunting captive-bred lions, a multi-million dollar industry.


    In South Africa, thousands of lions are bred in captivity only to be hunted and killed in enclosed areas, a practice known as "canned" hunting.

    Now government efforts to regulate the industry have been overturned by the country's supreme court.
