Trophy hunting is the killing of wild, exotic, and often endangered animals for “sport”.
I’m no expert on trophy hunting myself, but I do know that the practice of trophy hunting is doing irreversible damage to the populations of wild and endangered species, such as the Leopard, Cheetah, African Lion, and even Giraffes (see source for Giraffes if you don’t believe me), etc.
Trophy hunters kill these wild animals for sport, not thinking or caring about their conservation. Trophy hunters care about killing the largest and the best animal they can find, only to take body parts, import as trophies or mount the poor creatures on a wall.
This is a sick “sport”. Its disgusting and horrifying that these people are allowed to hunt and kill animals, especially endangered species.
I don’t even understand how these so called “hunters” feel that they have done something incredible by killing animals. What is so thrilling about killing them? About shooting them? SHOOT. With a gun. First of all, its not at all fair to the animal. An animal obviously cannot defend itself from a gun. A bullet isn’t very fair to teeth and claws. It is cruel and unnecessary to hunt for sport. All forms of Trophy Hunting should be banned and law against it should be strongly enforced.
