It's horrifying to imagine that it is still legal to hunt elephants in South Africa, but it IS legal. They claim that the hunts, usually paid for by weathy tourists, serve to stimulate the econonmy. However these hunts are usually done on private land and very little of the money would be distribiuted to needy South Africans. African elephant numbers have declined drastically in recent years due to poaching, culls, and hunting. The ivory or head is taken, and the body is left to rot. African Elephants are now on the vulnerable list, verging on endangered. Why is it still legal to kill them? Please, help put an end to it.

LEGAL Elephant hunting? This needs to stop. It is terrible and 100,000 people want this to be banned. One petition signer said: "THE "HUMAN" IS DESTROYING YOURSELF TO RULE THE PLANET! THIS STILL IN THE PROFESSION IS THIS "SAYS GOD: I WILL CAUSE THE RUIN OF THOSE WHO ARE RUINING THE PLANET".
Over 100,000 people want elephant poaching to be banned. Sure, it helps the economy, but elephants will soon go extinct. PLEASE, BAN LEGAL ELEPHANT HUNTING!
