Trophy hunting is the selective hunting of wild game animals...

 

Trophy hunting has firm supporters and opponents.

Trophy hunting: 'Killing animals to save them is not conservation'

Killing endangered wildlife to save it is just wrong.

 

It does not make sense morally, economically, biologically, or from a conservation-incentive point of view. It is a philosophy that has no place in modern conservation.

 

And even though it is Americans who constitute a major percentage of the world's trophy hunters, this small, wealthy club of big game sport hunters do not embrace the values of the vast majority of other Americans who appreciate the many non-exploitative values of wild animals.

 

For example, a Synovate eNation poll in 2011 found that of those responding to its survey, 70.4% of Americans would pay to view lions on an African safari, while only 6.6% would pay to hunt them.

 

And opposition is not just theoretical -- a poll conducted by the Beekeeper group on behalf of the IFAW in 2014 found that 82% of Americans surveyed support banning lion trophies, and 83% support banning elephant trophies....

Firstly, let me introduce you to the gruesome and lucrative industry of canned hunting in South Africa.  It starts at lion farms (around 160 of them in South Africa), where lions are bred.  Shortly after their birth the cubs are taken from their mothers and taken to resorts and other places where tourists can pay to pet and interact with them.  Animal lovers queue too do this, I did, not knowing the fate of these cute affectionate lion cubs.  When these cubs reach an age where they are no longer

‘Canned hunting’ methods threaten ethical standards of Texas hunters

‘Canned hunting’ methods threaten ethical standards of Texas hunters | Trophy Hunting: It's Impact on Wildlife and People | Scoop.it
A disturbing trend in Texas and across the nation is drawing attention from hunters and non-hunters alike — raising deer in captivity, much like livestock, and then releasing them to be hunted as little as 10 days later. Extreme animal husbandry practices such as repeated forced semen collection, artificial insemination, bottle raising and often cavalier use of drugs to create abnormally large antlers are common in this industry, but have no place in wildlife management. Shooting a deer 10 days
