Every year some 18,000 hunters travel to Africa, paying between 20,000 and 40,000 dollars or even more to hunt a lion raised on special farms for this purpose. This sport is known as "canned hunting". About 8,000 lions are raised in captivity and are destined for these practices which are still legal in some African countries.
