I just don’t get why anyone would want to do this. Whilst I don’t agree with hunting at all I can sort of see why someone would be attracted to the thrill and skill of a ‘proper’ hunt – on in which the animal had the opportunity to do the killing as well – but to kill something just because you want to, sad people!
Americans Are to Blame for Trophy Hunting. This Lawsuit Just Made It Easier.
Americans are fueling the trophy hunting industry, and thanks to a recent lawsuit settlement, it looks like that trend will only get worse. Trophy hunting permits from the U.S. government, which allow Americans to bring carcasses of animals they kill into the country, have been paused since 2017. Now, for the first time in five years, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has granted six permits to bring the dismembered parts of hunted African elephants into the country — and it plans to approve more in the coming months.
An increase in hunting permits will only encourage wealthy Americans to continue traveling to African countries to slaughter innocent, endangered animals. Sign the petition to demand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reject all future trophy hunting permits!
As more trophies are approved, wealthy Americans will continue to spend their money on lavish trips to African countries to murder these innocent creatures. Sign the petition to urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to ban all future elephant trophy permits!
