After Targeting Elephants, Trump Administration Puts African Lions in the Crosshairs

 

The U.S. government is turning American trophy hunters loose in Africa. It is an outrage.

 

By Wayne Pacelle / AlterNet……November 17, 2017, 8:55 PM GMT….On Wednesday, I reacted in real time on my blog to the Safari Club International’s announcement that the U.S. Department of the Interior plans to lift a ban on the import of sport-hunted trophies of rare and beleaguered African elephants. In short, our government is essentially turning loose American trophy hunters in Zimbabwe, at a time when declines in elephant populations have been documented because of the ruthless killing of the animals for their ivory. The United States has led the fight against the ivory trade worldwide, and now it’s undermining that morally urgent fight by allowing one class of ivory hunters to have their way with elephants. The upper class, that is.
