Nature's Children do not reveal their intimate ways to the bustling, human noisemaker, and he who would seek to know something of their interesting daily doings must, first of all, acquire the faculty to observe whilst remaining unobserved, and hear without being heard." So wrote Cherry Kearton in 1903 in "Wild Nature's Ways." But there are those in the good old days and even today when almost 70 percent of the wild animal populations of the planet have been lost, who would triumph and gloat over a leopard, lion, elephant, or even wolf carcass and pride themselves on their kill. The smiles of victory trophy hunters exhibit over their fallen victims should make us all shudder. That trophy hunters take thousands of animals each and every year is hardly given a second thought. Wild mammals are mutilated each and every year for fun. Fun. Cherry would have been aghast at the thought.He would have been mortified to know that 600 trophy hunters take out animals on their bucket list every year. The annual lion-hunting quota is imperiling the species. are in Kenya in 1975, there were maybe 200-300 thousand lions. The king of beasts is marching towards extinction. Today they may number no more than 15,000. That's reverse evolution, and it's revolting. That a semblance of the wild still moves is a miracle. If the practice Cherry so vilified does not cease, nature will soon be no more.accoriding to Cherry Kesrton in 1903 in "Wild Nature's Ways."
More animal species are now threatened with extinction than ever before and we are appalled at the thought of hunters bringing back trophies and placing more pressure on some of our most iconic and endangered animals.
More animal species are now threatened with extinction than ever before and we are appalled at the thought of hunters bringing back trophies and placing more pressure on some of our most iconic and endangered animals. We need to put an end to this senseless, needless and cruel practice. This is NOT a sport! Trophy Hunters will not be at risk if this ends. Just pisses them off. If Britain can do this, why not us? No reason to continue
