The breeders who present mountain lion cubs for sale have some monetary purposes as well. They attract people with sugar -coated descriptions. They claim themselves as rescuers with sanctuaries. They exaggerate the facts by saying that cubs enjoy the blowing in face and dangling down by holding under front arms.
Those who want to take photos with white lion cubs are satisfied by saying that close up photos with flash do not harm the cubs. They make people believe that it is legal and safe for humans to have contact with cubs. Another lie based on monetary purpose is that the exhibitor does this promote conservation in the wild.
