The lion man's case sign now

This petition is about Craig `the lion man` Busch who is currently being pursued by disgruntled Auckland builder Rob Reece for an investment of $400,000 that he is said to have failed to pay back. Reese and Busch met 5 years ago and started the almost partnership. The two co existed quite happily until 5 years later when Reece announced he was suing Busch for the unpaid debt. Busch says in his defence, `It takes time to build up a steady business and the debt amount was exaggerated.` But Reece wants money, and if he cant get it hes threatening to take the lions. Bush says he has done everything to settle there dispute, and has even offered to pay the money back in full but Reece refused to sign legal documentation, something Reece denies.

In conclusion, I, and many others, believe that Mr Reece was out of order and should not have the right to take the lions from their surrogate father as they would have a better life with Mr Busch who has raised most of them from (approximately) 10 days old, and really, I think that people should stop and think about the well being of the lions instead of a row about money, dont you?

    Negotiate fairly with consideration for the plight of the animals, who would suffer terribly if taken from Mr Busch. I've seen it happen before. Don't let it happen again. Let those who care, keep.

    i strongly agree with this argument written by my friend and i think that if you dont do that to children why do it to animals. because if a man didnt pay off his debts then he wouldnt lose his kids so why should it be different with animals. they have fe
