Stop the hunting of great tusker elephants

This petition had 9,290 supporters

This petition is to campaign to save the life of one of the last 50 great tusker elephants left in Africa. A licence to hunt a great tusker has been granted by Timbavati Private Nature Reserve - This elephant is in his prime. He should be living a long and natural life. He does not deserve to be hunted and killed. Please sign this petition. It will be presented to the park as a show of feeling.

Save the Elephants reported on this matter and has called for a petition to be started. They say:

"In the wake of the death of the great tusker Satao II, we find it morally reprehensible and simply unfathomable for any park anywhere to announce that they are going to kill a super tusker believed to be over 50 years old. Yet, here we are. Timbavati Reserve in South Africa have just put a great tusker on their quota to be hunted. For the sake of his life, his ecological memory, and the precious genes of a great tusker we would never want to lose, we cannot let this happen."

Save the Elephants is calling on everyone to sign a petition against this travesty as soon as possible.

I will post updates of this story as I get them.
