To stop 'Lion Shows' is hotelier's responsibility


To stop ‘Lion Shows’ is hotelier’s responsibility

Gujarat Samachar (Briefly translated from Gujarati)

Few days back ‘Lion Shows’ for tourist using live baits was published in news papers and TV Channels. As a reaction and to stop such shows PCCF – WL Pradeep Khanna rushed to Sasan (Gir).

He called for a meeting of Hotel owners, Restaurant owners and Farm owners of Talala region. He strictly instructed them not to allow their guests to go out of the hotel during night. He also informed them to submit list of guests regularly to the forest department.

He warned them that if such private lion shows are not stopped then he will stop all the hotels in the area. Hoteliers feel that such warnings and instructions of forest are just like shifting their responsibilities on to their soldiers.
