Danish TV has been broadcasting entertainment programs in which amateurs shoot animals for fun and then eat them.
In one program, we follow a Danish female TV host who is the hunter and a Danish actor who is a cook. The program is called "The wildest meal." The program takes place in Africa.
Among other things, we see her shoot a zebra and then the cook prepares a meal from it.
There are three species of zebras. One of them is critical endangered. As a non-expert, she has no prerequisites for knowing if she has in fact shot an endangered species.
She is a passionate hunter and is explicitly jubilant when she has shot an animal. Please watch the video here. It is in Danish but the pictures speak for themselves.
She claims that she only shoots the animals that she eats. Did she eat an elephant?
She has an elephant's head displayed as a trophy on her wall.
In the living room hangs a giant elephant’s head with its trunk raised on the wall along with trophies of large antelopes, and the coffee table is equipped with real giraffe legs.
In another programme, we follow two complete amateurs, showing a total lack of respect for animals. Once again, one of these shoots an animal while the other prepares a meal out of the animal. The programme is called "Kill and Eat"
Both amateuars seem to be a little drunk and several of the animals have only been wounded as opposed to shot..
At the start of the programme, they select an animalt hat is to be shot and if they do not manage to hit it, they instead shoot an animal pertaining to a category of animals that they refer to as "loser" animals. For this purpose, a fox and a marten have suffered – both of which were subsequently eaten .
See pictures here
In Denmark, there are few predators left and they should not be eradicated in order to please a few Danes.
It is deeply unethical to portray the killing of wildlife “for fun” as entertainment.
If you, like I, think that it is reprehensible to broadcast such programs, please sign this petition.

I won't watch the video, thanks. I think I get the idea. Just when you think you've seen the lowest the human race can go in finding something to call entertainment, they find yet another way to surprise you.

Denmark is proving themselves to be an uncaring nation lately as far as animals are concerned. This is disgusting and entirely reprehensible! What the devil is wrong with people who persistently have a seemingly insatiable need to kill all the time? Let me see...that would be the fact that they haven't evolved from cavemen! Stop this horrible practice now before there are no animals left! I am completely blown away by the depths to which "humanity" has sunk. Can't watch the video, signed and noted with sadness. Thanks.

I CANNOT AND WILL NOT WATCH THE VIDEO. I DON'T HAVE TO. THESE HUMANS NEED TO BE TORTURED AND ELIMINATED ASAP. I LIKE THE IDEA OF A HUMAN HEAD AS A TROPHY. BESIDES WHICH, THE SHOW MUST BE BANISHED FROM THE NETWORK. THIS IS NOT ENTERTAINMENT.
