East Siders turn out to oppose lion hunting

About 100 East Siders gathered at Conway Recreation Center on Saturday, Aug. 15 to create a work of aerial art. Artist John Quigley got the group to form a picture of a lion, as can be seen from this aerial photograph. The idea was to call for the protection of lions and the end of trophy hunting, in response to a Bloomington dentist’s killing of a revered research lion near a nature preserve in Zimbabwe.
