The Trump administration announced Wednesday that the remains of elephants and lions legally hunted in Zimbabwe and Zambia can now be imported to the United States as trophies, reversing a ban under former president Barack Obama.
Zimbabwe is currently in turmoil, with President Robert Mugabe under house arrest as a military coup unfolds. In criticizing the decision, the Humane Society of the United States called the ban on Zimbabwean elephant imports unreasonable because Zimbabwe is “one of the most corrupt countries on Earth.” The organization noted that Mugabe celebrated his birthday last year by dining on an elephant!!
African elephants and lions are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act and it is beyond barbaric to kill these majestic creatures for sport! Stop the ivory trade! Stop trophy hunting! Stop being a horrible person Mr Trump!
