This is a fact totally absurd, if we allow to the money to buy trophies animals in great danger of extinction, the millionaires hunters in the world will run in search of the most ambitious trophy
In addition to this, since we are talking about very poor countries certainly almost all of the figure will never be dedicated to the protection of the breed killed, but it will be stolen upstream

We have to take the word civilized out of the dictionary because civilized human beings do not kill for greed or sport. Uncaring, uneducated savages do.

This jerk probably bought off some sleazy politician to bring his "prize" here so his mullet-wearing buddies can be constantly reminded to stroke his ego. Why doesn't he take up a hobby that requires actual skills or talent? Buying a trophy doesn't really count. What a hack.

I have not been receiving the Care 2 email since April 8th. Does anyone know why they would stop sending to someone? I have written to Care 2 four times but get no reply. I miss the daily email with all the news and causes.
