Legelela gives giraffe hunts for £2, four hundred, zebra from £2,000, with costs for leopard, rhino, lion, and elephant hunts to be had ‘on request.’
Eduardo Goncalves from the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting thinks that the lions the couple shot were bred on a lion farm and killed in an enclosure.

“This couple has to be completely ashamed of themselves, not showing off and snogging for the cameras.”
