Isn't it about time we all had a good hard look at trophy hunting and decide it's just a barbaric activity for a bunch of wealthy psychopaths. How can there possibly be any good reason to go out and hunt down an animal just for pleasure. There can be no reason. The particularly weak arguments that trophy hunters actually aid in conservation is a great lie created to support an industry that makes money out of the suffering of animals. We live in a world where some of the most iconic and majestic animals are fighting for their existence. A world that has seen lion numbers plummet from hundreds of thousands that roamed all across Africa just a hundred years ago. Now their populations are fragmented and scattered with the count at around 20,000 - 30,000 lions trying to survive as man encroaches further into their habitat, as rich foreigners fly in to target and trophy hunt big male lions for fun. How can this continue when it's so obvious it's completely unsustainable and just plain wrong. Why is trophy hunting tolerated at all ? It's a crime against nature.
