Canned hunting, a trophy hunt in which animals are raised on game ranches and confined in an enclosed area, increases the hunters’ success in killing. This term is also known as vanity hunting.
In some instances, the animals raised in these canned hunting areas are taken as newborns from their mothers. In other instances, mostly in the case of lions in South Africa, they are bred specifically for this doomed and heinous destiny.
There is no chance for the animal to be able to escape as they are usually fenced in. It is a brutal practice that has been banned in many places across the world.
Unfortunately, most hunting occurs on private land, where laws protecting wildlife are hard to enforce. It has become quite a big business over the years. Only a handful of states in the US prohibit canned hunting and there is currently no federal laws preventing the practice.
