From the ABC's  Bush Telegraph with Cameron Wilson, Young Australian volunteers unwittingly paying to prop up 'cruel' canned hunting industry: South African conservationist.

oung Australian volunteers are flying to South Africa and helping to raise lion cubs in the belief that they are going to be released back into the wild, only for those lions to be used purely for canned hunting purposes.

That is the allegation of Ian Michler, a South African journalist and conservationist who has lobbied internationally to close down the canned hunting industry.

'A lot of young students are being lured over there, they are paying up to $1,000 a week to breeders to go and work in these properties on the grounds that they are doing something constructive for conservation,' said Mr Michler.

'It's a con.'

Canned hunting takes place in confined environments, where animals, most commonly lions, have been bred to be killed.

It differs from more traditional 'fair-chase' hunting, where the hunt takes place in an area large enough for the animal to have a chance of escape.

'In this day and age, where everything is on demand, canned hunting is a form where you can get your animal a lot cheaper, you can get it in a shorter period of time, and it is guaranteed,' said Mr Michler.

'The animal has no chance of escape.'
