Despite the fact that last years uproar over "Cecil the lion" actually caused MORE lions to be killed in Zimbabwe, the ANTI hunting crowd is back with plans for a rally to remember Cecil the Lion and speak out against Trophy Hunting.
The organizers hope to have at least 20,000 people attend and plan on selling T-shirts and offering live music.
Oh, and stop seal hunting as well.
Have these folks not seen the error of their ways?
Don't they know this will cause even more lions to be killed and for that country to receive none of the money associated with having to do so?
What are your thoughts?

IMAGINE 20,000 animal lovers gathering at Washington DC for a day of remembering Cecil the Lion and speaking out against Trophy Hunting and canned hunting that is taking place at home AND abroad.
Since the death of Cecil the Lion, the world has become aware of the horrors of Trophy Hunting and Poaching. Many people across the world have taken to the streets to speak up for the voiceless and challenged law makers in their countries to change. Many countries hosted massive rallies numbering in the thousands with Israel and Spain's rally topping at a record number of 15,000 each.
It's time for the American people to SHINE and join the movement. This July, join 20,000 animal lovers as we gather at Washington DC and make a statement that Trophy Hunting is NOT SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE. We are inviting celebrities and artists to join us for this weekend rally to bring about CHANGE for the animals.
