US senator introduces 'CECIL' act to curb trophy hunting

This picture released on July 28, 2015 by the Zimbabwe National Parks agency shows Cecil the lion on October 21, 2012Urging Americans to curb trophy killings and not be “cowardly lions,” US lawmakers introduced legislation Friday that would prevent the kinds of controversial hunting that brought down Zimbabwe’s beloved beast Cecil. Senate Democrat Robert Menendez’s bill would expand the import-export restrictions of the 1973 Endangered Species Act to include animals that are not just listed as endangered or threatened, but those that are “proposed to be listed” as such. The US Fish and Wildlife Service, which maintains the US endangered species list, last October proposed to list the African lion as threatened due to habitat loss and increased human-lion conflicts.
