STOP THE HUNTING

On the 1st of July 2015, Cecil, a well-known Hwange lion was illegally shot by Minnesota Dentist, Walter Palmer. Mr Palmer had paid $50,000 for the "pleasure" of hunting the great animal.

Cecil was lured out of the protected environment of the Hwange National Park and hunted with a bow and arrow. This blow didn't kill him, however, and he was eventually tracked down some 40 hours later and finished off with a gun.

All proceeds from the song and the video are being donated to the AWARE Trust of Zimbabwe

The wonderful photographs were provide by Ann Warner


lyrics

This is a story of shame and hope
This is a story of sport gone wrong
50,000 dollars and a 13 year old lion
A lesson we should have learned
Many years ago

Stop the hunting stop the killing
Lets protect the beauty here
They're not ours to abuse
But only placed in our care
To be preserved

A southwest lion mature and so assured
Tempted down from his place of rest
Brought down so easily with bow and arrow
Has shone a spotlight on a pastime so absurd

A worldwide awakening
not too late to change

Tracks:
Bass 535
Drums Nashville pop 16 swing
Guitars 2441, 1581 and 1582
Fiddle 1111
Loops Tamborine

America has a solid hunting culture -- but trophy hunting is pretty much has to go. It has never made any sense except to feed the ego of some weird folks. If the lions need to be culled to reduce local over-population, let the rangers do it.

Good song, well crafted!

A pretty and moving song Joanne! This is a tragic story. I don't know why it is ever legal to hunt lions, or many other animals. It's great that you're speaking out against it. Take care. Greg

The story of this trophy hunt is beyond pathetic and makes me angry to even think about it.

Nice topical song. Hope it helps.

Hello Joanne,

A good song about a sad story....
It was all over the news here in Holland too.
We like the acoustic basis of the song, a very good use of the acoustic guitar realtracks.
As usual, vocals and backing vocals are very well done.

An excellent write, performance and production Joanne. It is so sad to what happened to the lion. No excuse nor redemption.

I was a Dentist years back and so have been getting a few comments from people. So I pointed them to PERFECT FRIENDS Now I shall refer to this sad, but beautiful, song.
I don't understand humans at all.

Phew. Things have been hectic. Am finally getting round to responding to all your posts. The video is having a bit of a run on Facebook with the emotions all running quite high around Cecil.

Kevin, thanks so much. Glad to see you around again. I know I keep asking you this but when are we going to see you on the jelly again?

Greg, thank you. It should not be legal to hunt. There has to be another way to raise money for conservation. Plus the money generated from hunting has a way of ending up in other people’s pockets!

Josie, me too. The fact that somebody can pay $50,000 to hunt a lion is appalling. It is even more frightening to think about where this money went (or rather could have gone because one would hope that it has now been seized). My feeling is that this particular story came to light because the correct palms were not greased in Zim.

Joanne, When I first heard this story, I immediately thought of you. Good job getting on it right away. These are such beautiful and majestic creatures, all trophy hunting should be banned. Turns out that dentist has a home here in Fl. Yesterday someone spray painted LION KILLER on his garage door. It's good to see so many people pissed off and speaking up for a such a worthy cause. Your productions are definitely getting stronger each time. Good job! Tom

Thank you for doing this Joanne. It is truly incomprehensible.

Hello Josie.

every day a sad news.
I like your song as sad as the news.

for this story days ago I signed a petition on this site

https://www.change.org/p/giustizia-per-cecil-il-leone-simbolo-ucciso-da-un-cacciatore-di-trofei-in-zimbabwe?source_location=trending_petitions_home_page&algorithm=curated_trending

I do not know whether it can serve but it's what I can do from here.

Hello

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
