Why on earth would anyone want a trophy elephant?  Where does one keep a trophy elephant.

 

I'm an elephant fan ... have collected them for years as a political symbol (and I do have one token donkey).  But all of mine can fit on the coffee table.  


@ALRATIBA One keeps their head on one's wall. Smiley Sad It might be time to start collecting more donkeys... Smiley Wink

Re: Ban to be lifted on import of trophy elephants

You have to wonder just how much of a psycho someone must be to get joy out of killing elephants for fun. They even need to bring something home to relive that experience. Sick!

Re: Ban to be lifted on import of trophy elephants

If none of us here write/email, I can only imagine the hundreds of thousands of people who also aren't.  Send our complaints to someone 'over there'.  Just 'pick a person' that you think will do the most good, and send those letters/emails.  ......... Also, A. has been rich in diamonds, gemstones, coffee, possibly oil, and other natural resources for hundreds of years.   All of the money/profit made over there remains 'at the top'.  There's plenty of money to go around to the people, rare animals, preserves, etc.  In other words, place your $ where it actually reaches the proper places, people.   Jmo, of course.

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

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....

Oh, there's an answer all right.

"You know who" is the one who did it.

Sorry, but I'm not going to type out a name that will surely get blown away.
