Tell Texas- Stop Hunting Endangered Antelope

An African antelope, the scimitar-horned oryx, is now thought to be extinct in the wild, hunted to the brink of extinction for its meat, hides and horn-trophies. They once occupied the whole Saraha Desert but there has been no sighting for 15 years.

Texas ranchers are fighting to breed and hunt the critically endangered animal for its meat, hides and horn-trophies- the very thing that caused the animal to go extinct in the first place.

"It’s our private property. We bought these animals, we have propagated these animals and conserved them," Charly Seale, executive director of the Exotic Wildlife Assn., told The Times.

Tell Charly Seale that breeding endangered animals to kill them is NOT conservation, and that critically endangered animals are not his private property when they are protected by international law.
