What kind of human being would teach a child that murdering a living thing is fun?
Add your name if you want to ban trophy hunting for minors, NOW!
"Bloodthirsty parents are paying for kids as young as four to slaughter exotic animals in Africa – as safari bosses sink to new depths with depraved "U10s go free" trophy hunting packages.
"One shocking picture shows a bloodstained schoolboy grinning as he stands over the antelope he slaughtered just moments before with a military-grade sniper rifle," according The Daily Star.
That child was part of a so-called "family friendly" campaign to "inspire the next generation of hunters".
The same source added: "Some let children under 10 hunt for free, while others throw in free taxidermy so they can mount their conquests on their bedroom walls."
Some of them are as young as four.
What could be more horrible than inspiring children to be heartless killers?
But it gets worse...
Some of the animals they are killing are endangered.
"Several of the firms rake in hundreds of thousands by giving punters the chance to kill elephants, lions, leopards and rhinos.
"The endangered beasts are slaughtered with rifles and crossbows before their corpses are harvested for trophy mounts," said The Daily Star.
"I don't see sport here. I see abuse.
"There are studies that show the link between the effects of violence on animals and the legacy it imposes on children.
"Serial killers start with animals. Why would any parent take these pointless risks with the psychological well-being of their children?
"Kids will do anything to gain approval and respect from their role models – even killing a beautiful wild animal for fun," said Ricky Gervais, who is a well-known wildlife activist.
I agree with him, 100%. How about you?
It's going to take BIG, international efforts to ban children from participating in trophy hunts.
That's why we're calling on the Pan African Parliament to do whatever it takes to make it illegal for minors to participate in this cruel "sport".
Don't you want to stop trophy hunters from teaching their children to be bloodthirsty killers?
Then add your name to ask Malik Hussein, Chairperson of the Committee on Rural Economy Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment for the Pan African Parliament, to introduce a motion to make it illegal for minors to engage in trophy hunting!
