Enforce the Endangered Species Act on Citizens Traveling Abroad

This petition had 6,192 supporters


This petition is a call to enforce the Endangered Species Act of 1973 on US citizens who travel abroad, hunt and kill endangered animals, then flaunt these kills on social media, and make efforts to bring their physical trophies home with them. These criminals need to be extradited to the countries where their original crimes occurred, and/or tried in the US for these crimes. A US citizen is subject to US law no matter where in the world they travel, giving the Federal government original jurisdiction and right to enforce. The evidence is easily acquired since these criminals post the evidence all over social media.
