Movement around the world taking place. I might not live witness but it's coming. Time is close at hand where all living creatures will be treated respectfully, violence against animals shall NO longer be.

Re: Ban to be lifted on import of trophy elephants

This is so disgusting. I'd like to wake up just one day to something not horrible.

Re: Ban to be lifted on import of trophy elephants

I saw this last night and was so angry and disgusted that I was almost beyond words.  And then I thought, someone must be able to reverse this decision or stop it in its tracks.

 

So, without being political, I'm going to write to my representatives to ask "Who?"  This has got to stop.

 

Trophy hunters disgust me on every level.

No worries @Plaid Pants2, it appears in many ways we are reverting.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

Look around you ... innocent human life has become devalued at both the beginning and end of life; genocide is ignored.

 

You expect animals to be treated any better?

 

You're right ... "choices" have consequences.  It's called the "law of unintended consequences."

I have contacted my members of Congress to see if this can be overturned immediately.  I would advise others who are concerned to also do this.

I think what we expect is for TPTB to concentrate on those items that benefit us all.  The lifting of this ban only benefits the few numbskulls out there who think it's fun (and can afford) to kill elephants and import their carcasses to the US for whatever reason.  Yet we can't have a law that prevents mentally ill people from legally buying a gun.

Re: Ban to be lifted on import of trophy elephants

What can I say that hasn't already been said?

 

When I heard, this, I tried to imagine WHAT would motivate someone to want to do this.   Of course, there is no answer.

 

Ignorance, arrogance and power are dangerous.

 

Now, they are being used to destroy....

The motivation is very clear.
