Roger Moore


 We at LionAid are saddened to hear of the passing of Sir Roger Moore. Perhaps best known as one of the “James Bonds”, Sir Roger later in life became a strong advocate against trophy hunting.

He said, appropriately, that trophy hunting was “coward’s pastime” and spoke out strongly about the killing of Cecil the lion.

About two years ago Sir Roger said – “We should protect … not destroy them – much less derive pleasure from doing so.”

Rest in peace Roger. We will miss you, and many condolences to your family.
