    Trophy hunting for endangered species like lions is further endangering the species since the same traits that female lions find erotic, are the traits that trophy hunters target. Large, dark manes and physically imposing specimens. So the male lions that aren't selected by trophy hunters, are the weaker betas of the species hence ensuring that future generations are weaker.

    I'm not anti hunting for species that are prolific like deer and if the carcasses are being consumed. But I am anti-trophy hunting since it's just an extension of the arrogance and stupidity of human kind.

    It's tragic and obnoxious. But I'm perpetually confused about human psychology when it comes to the news. This recent story (poachers killed 300 elephants with cyanide) didn't make nearly as many headlines as this lion incident, I don't think. Why does the lion story cause so much more blood boiling? Maybe that Stalin quote is relevant: "One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic." Idk.

    Saddening. But how about these thoughts on the matter:
    As much as the thought baffles me- it appears that old Simba took one for the team…without his death the entire area he lived would be devoid of wildlife and, maybe more importantly- devoid of lions.

    Ecotourism creates a more sustainable economy while ensuring that the wildlife ecosystem isn't fractured since it ensures that prides remain intact until cubs mature to adulthood. It not only allows natural selection to happen for predatory animals but also ensures that the weakest of prey species are picked off through consumption, so the strong live long enough to breed.

    Humans are brain dead when it comes to hunting since they target the strong where all other predatory animals target the weak.

    That's a reasonable argument, and one I'm willing to take into future consideration regarding endangered species policies......though I suspect that specially regulated hunting preserves (taking your objections into account), with profits shared between governments and tribes indigenous to the area in question, would be more profitable, and therefore more likely to motivate stakeholders to protect wildlife from poachers and development.
