At a time when wild animals need our greatest protection and care the news that US president Donald Trump is lifting a ban on the import of trophies. It shouldn't be any surprise to any one who has watched with horror the disregard this president has shown for the environment. His own sons have been photographed with leopard trophies so it's clear they weren't raised with any appreciation of nature or the animals in it. Elephants already facing their greatest battle to survive, lions at the mercy of psychopaths like Palmer the dentist, along with many other species targeted as trophy animals will be affected by the ruling. It is truly shameful and regressive at a time when the animals deserve and need our protection to help them survive against increasingly overwhelming odds that this president would condemn so many to ultimate slaughter and all within the law. Shame shame shame on you Trump and may your reign as president be short. A few days later and Trump has had a change of heart it seems but I wonder for how long.
