Panthera Africa Wines (PAWs)
Award-winning Creation Wines
Star bright and subtly green with inviting aromas of guava, passion fruit and Cape gooseberry. Whiffs of grapefruit and peach stone add to the attraction. On the palate the wine rewards with lovely crisp acidity and a hint of salty minerals. R140
Deep, ripe mulberry coloured with vivid flashes of violet – truly inviting. The complex nose tempts with a medley of dark berries and spice (especially pepper and clove) which are echoed on the plush palate. A beautifully structured wine with hints of dark chocolate and a whisper of smoke on the lingering aftertaste. R140
Cuddle Me Kill Me
A true account of South Africa’s captive lion breeding and canned hunting industry
By Richard Peirce
Canned lion hunting sprang to the world’s attention with the 2015 launch of the documentary, Blood Lions. is movie blew the cover o a brutal industry that has burgeoned in the last decade or so, operating largely under the radar of public concern.
In Cuddle Me Kill Me, veteran wildlife campaigner Richard Peirce reveals horrifying facts about the industry.
Well researched by Peirce with the help of an undercover agent, and illustrated with photos taken along the way, this is a disturbing and passionate plea to end commercial captive lion breeding and the repurposing of wildlife to cater for human greed.
Richard Peirce is well known as a shark conservationist. A former chairman of e Shark Conservation Society and e Shark Trust, he is still on the boards of both NGOs. More recently he has authored several books, including e Poacher’s Moon, an exposé of rhino-poaching; Giant Steps, about abuse of captive elephants; and Nicole, dealing with the hunting and decimation of sharks. Richard and his wife Jacqui are con rmed nomads who spend half the year in South Africa; their love of wildlife takes them to the bush at every opportunity.
