Humans have affected lions in 2 ways:

1. Habitat destruction

2. Hunting

Habitat destruction is due to human population, wherein humans encroach into forests where lions live.

Hunting is the biggest threat. humans have hunted lions for centuries. Killing a lion was considered a brave act and almost the entire Asian lion population was lost due to hunting. There are only a few hundred of these asian lions alive in the forests of India
