Shame on the US for it's disgusting trade in giraffe body parts. It's not just asian countries driving animals to the brink of extinction but a wealthy country that obviously has a thriving trade in souvenirs and trophies of these beautiful towering African animals. It probably shouldn't surprise anyone actually when you consider the leadership or should I say lack of it. Trump is no lover of the environment of animals so why would be do anything to stop this ghastly trade. Over 40 years the populations of these amazing unique animals has plummeted by 40%. Bones used to make knife handles, cowboy boots, bible covers and even a stuffed baby giraffe were all uncovered in an investigation into the trade which highlights how much in need these creatures are of protections and the clamping down of this senseless and horrifying profiteering.
