Every day Trophy Hunters shoot THREE tame lions in fenced enclosures for 'trophies'. Please help our brave investigators EXPOSE AND END THIS

by Eduardo Goncalves in Gosport, England, United Kingdom

Please help EXPOSE & END Trophy Hunting!

 Hi!

 In the last few weeks, investigators for the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting have revealed the identity of the world’s biggest trophy hunter, of a British company that organises ‘hunts’ of captive lions in fenced enclosures, of a British hunter who boasts he has killed lions, elephants, rhinos and leopards… 

 They also exposed how trophy hunters are shooting endangered POLAR BEARS for ‘FUN’, and that they are even killing PUFFINS..

 Their work is putting the Government under increasing pressure to act, and won the endorsement of newspapers including The Times and the Daily Mirror. But MORE is needed in order to get an IMMEDIATE MORATORIUM on ALL trophy hunting imports.

 Will You Help?

 (Trophy hunters are killing growing numbers of GIRAFFES)

Right now these brave investigators are working hard to bring new scandals to light. They are taking great risks so we can bring this evil ‘sport’ to an end…

 The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting urgently needs to raise £1,000 to complete its latest investigation.

 Every day that goes by, another 3 lions are shot in a fenced enclosure. They have no chance of escape. They are tame animals that have been shot in the most cowardly manner imaginable.  

 Please help EXPOSE & END trophy hunting TODAY by making a donation to support this investigation.

 (Despite being endangered, leopards are among the most popular animals for trophy hunters)

On behalf of voiceless animals…THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting said: “Trophy hunting is an abomination. The fact that we have so many hunting trophies coming into Britain each year is a stain on our nation’s reputation. How can we claim to be a nation of animal lovers when we allow this ­colonial hangover to carry on?

“British trophy hunters shoot hippos, leopards, zebras, bears, and even primates such as monkeys and baboons for fun. It’s sickening to think that the law then allows these people to bring their macabre souvenirs back into the country with them. British trophy hunters love to shoot lions.

"Almost every single lion shot by a British hunter now comes from one of these disgusting lion ‘factory farms’ dotted around South Africa. It is like shooting a zoo animal. These are tame animals born and bred in captivity. There’s nothing sporting about trophy hunting, but ‘canned hunting’ is surely the lowest of the low.”

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting said: “We’re facing a global extinction emergency with up to a million species under threat. They include some of the hunting world’s favourite targets. Thanks to the industry’s lobbying efforts a cruel colonial pastime is compounding the crisis facing endangered animals.”

Ron Thomson revealed he has also hunted 800 buffalo, 50 hippos and about 40 leopards among other animals, according to his website. Thomson has previously boasted about killing 32 elephants in one go – and it only taking him 15 minutes. He was identified in a report by the Campaign To Ban Trophy Hunting, which said African elephant populations have plummeted from around 1.3m in the 1980s to about 400,000 today.

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, said: ‘This man is little more than a serial killer of wildlife. Governments give them licences to kill, and the hunting industry lavishes them with awards. Cold-blooded killers like Sanchez-Arino should get prison, not permits and prizes.’

“Shameless British trophy hunter boasts of killing Africa's Endangered Big Five” – Daily Mirror

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/shameless-british-trophy-hunter-boasts-17371533 

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, slammed the lucrative business: “Carl Knight not only kills rare wildlife for fun, he makes thousands of pounds from these sick expeditions. He is literally making a killing. People in the UK will be heartbroken to learn he organises hunts of cheetahs, and outraged he makes a living helping kill endangered rhinos. They will be shocked he hosts shooting parties of giraffes and zebras, and guides hunters to shoot monkeys, ostriches and porcupines. How is shooting a monkey or an ostrich sport?”

The Campaign To Ban Trophy Hunting, said: ‘For a British company apparently to be actively organising canned lion hunts will make people sick to the stomach. It’s general practice in this industry for lion cubs to be ripped from their mothers a few days or hours after birth. They are then reared in captivity to be shot for entertainment.’

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/07/27/puffins-hunted-brought-back-uk-despite-government-efforts-save/

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting said: “The puffin is now in danger of becoming extinct, and uncontrolled hunting has been identified as a leading cause. There should be an immediate moratorium imposed before it is too late. CITES keeps no data on how many puffins are shot for recreation or traded. It is incredible that such an iconic species has been forgotten by the international community.”
