The Killing Game – The Trophy Is Extinction?

Whether the first human settlements were developed 40.000 or 100.000 years ago, these settlements were only possible after the development of a food source that did not come from hunting. Since then, human beings have come a long way. At least those who believe that survival no longer depends on hunting.

And then there are those who believe killing is a game. They no longer need to hunt, but see it as a fun pastime. No matter how high the costs.

“Black rhinos are in trouble – but that’s not stopping two American hunters who want to bring home a sickening trophy.

With only 1,800 remaining in Namibia and a worldwide population of just 5,000, black rhinos are endangered and protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

Some hunters don’t care about those numbers. They want to kill a rhino, and they want to bring their gruesome trophy home.

Tell the U.S. government to protect rare rhinos.

Two American hunters have applied for import permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. They need the import permit to bring home the remains of a dead rhino. ”
