Ive eaten lion. Africans probably will negate your comment, almost every kill poached or legal will be used by locals. Tropy hunters often dont want the meat. The skins are prepared locally. So the meat is almost always used... lion is valuable in all parts from africa east.. chinese medicine... folklore...

An Italian vet who courted controversy by sharing photos of animals he hunted on social media, has died after falling into a ravine while shooting wild birds.
Luciano Ponzetto received death threats last year after he posed in pictures next to his trophy kills of lions and other wild animals which he posted online.
He had pledged to take legal action against those who had threatened violence against him and argued that being a vet was “not incompatible with hunting, either morally or professionally”.
The vet died after he slipped on a sheet of ice and fell 100ft down a ravine at Colle delle Oche near Turin during a wild bird hunt, The Sun reported.

Not much to say other than there is some justice in the world...
The Sun version.
