Lion Bones Used for Phony Aphrodisiacs

A new ad campaign is underway in South Africa to stop the country’s lion bone trade. Lions are killed so their bones can be used to make fake aphrodisiacs and traditional medicines. The demand for the bones is growing in Asia as tigers become scarce. The campaign’s been launched by Avaaz – a group describing itself as a global web movement, whose name means “voice” in several languages.

    The bone they want is the baculum and it’s used for sympathetic magic.. For that one bone, they’re willing to kill the whole lion. Incredible.
