Sport hunting refers to animals killed for the prize of an animal trophy, usually the skin or mounted head of the animal. That can be done legally in a few places, such as game reserves. However, illegal sport hunting across Africa and poachers selling on lion trophies to the rest of the world is a real issue. I'd rather make "trophies" out of the hunters and poachers. Done

I've heard of these so called real men,with real guns,thinking they are a match to killing animals tht are not in shape or exsperience surviors in the wild and sicking their dogs on them and then shooting them dead and patting themselves on the back.They are stupid,trigger happy nuts who enjoy killing.These poachers/hunters are lower than animals to me!!! Kids everywhere being taught to love killing something so defenseless and no match for guns.Most kids aren't even out of diapers and learning that killing is so exciting and a okay!Sad this crap is even legal!!!

This is sad,I signed this along time ago! Now this person needs to be forced to give this tiger up to the sanurary and never again own another tiger,etc.! I hope this tiger goes to a good place and doesn't end up in with the canning etc. bad places in life.This tiger has had to endure a horriable life that never should of been legal in the first place!It would be nice to be updated and to see this tiger at his new home being free to roam. I hope it gets its freedom while it can still enjoy life as a tiger should, Speed up the process and punish this punk,by making him live in the cage for awhile.Give him a taste of his own medicine! Until the law starts steppin up to the plate and saying NO MORE,these types of idiots will keep being stupid,selffish and inhumane,because as long as these idiots can,they will and they raise their young to be the same idiots as themselves!!!! We need laws to put an end to this non sense of abuse everywhere!!Set this Tiger Free ASP!!

The whole concept of trophy hunting, whether in the wild or in enclosures, is sickening. The people engaging in this industry: game hunting tour companies & guides, canned hunting facility owners, hunters etc., all need urgent treatment for their pathological behaviour.
(Sorry for being judgemental about other people, but this human activity is very disturbing).
