Ban the Cruel and Unsporting Practice of Captive or "Canned" Hunting in the United States

This petition had 869 supporters


Captive hunting operations—also referred to as "shooting preserves," "canned hunts," or "game ranches"—are private trophy hunting facilities that offer their customers the opportunity to kill exotic and native animals trapped within enclosures. Some facilities have even allowed their clients to kill animals remotely via the Internet. Like "shooting fish in a barrel", these types of operations are setup to guarantee a kill for trophy hunters. "Fair chase"—a concept central to the philosophy of many in the hunting community—doesn't exist in captive hunts and this unfair and inhumane practice should be banned in the United States.
