Thank you so much Mr. Gervais for speaking up for those of us who howl down a wind tunnel because we don't have a public platform. Changing the face of trophy hunting from a brave conservation act to what it really is, a disgusting and vile practice, will save the lives of countless numbers of vanishing wildlife. Thanks to trophy hunters and poachers there is one male white rhino left in Africa. He is under armed guard 24/7 and the chances that his sperm can be transferred to the four remaining female white rhinos in America are slim. So, trophy hunters, you're doing a good job killing giraffes, an endangered species, keep it up and they too will become extinct. Commented on, signed and noted. Thank you Cher.

Those on Facebook won't know but the fact is that there are more and more 'Princess Smiley-Faces' posted with the animals they have so proudly despatched and sometimes with the family. One, aged nine years of age was photographed and posted by her father boasting about his little daughter's big kill. She had killed a male bear up in Alaska somewhere. Out on the tundra, it's huge, foraging form could have been easily seen and add to that the high-velocity rifle and the immense magnification of the telescopic lens and it was never a skill but the simple will to kill and behead a beautiful beast and take another photo of the 'trophy' bound once it was up on her wall Normal girls, as I see it, would prefer a poster of Justin Beiber or One Direction.
Ricky wrote his piece on that one too. He is a renowned and outspoken advocate for animals but there are others too: Joaquin Phoenix says, on Twitter that it takes nothing away from a man to care about animals, or words to that effect. Sir Paul McCartney heads the 'End The Age Of The Cage' campaign for PETA while Pamela Anderson, Moby and Joanna Lumley give much of their time and effort to bring awareness and
publicity to the egregious cruelty and underlying political motivation behind much of the animal abuse.
