Please Tell President Obama to stop supporting the slaughter of African elephants

December 29, 2010




PLEASE CLICK ON AND SIGN Save Elephants: End Illegal Ivory Imports

BACKGROUND

The U.S. is one of the largest retail markets for imported ivory, and therefore a major driver of elephant poaching in Africa. This is possible because of loopholes in Endangered Species Act protections.

Today, elephants are being slaughtered in record numbers. And reports say that ivory trade has dramatically escalated since 2005 — this correlation is no coincidence.

It’s shameful that the U.S. would support the slaughter of African elephants and allow an illegal ivory trade to flourish under the radar.

Please remember to sign the petition HERE.

Don’t Bring Back Bloodshed …

And while the good, decent, and honest people of this world attempt to behave responsibly and extend assistance and respect, sociopathic serial killers do all they can to ensure they will be able to continually murder; someone please illuminate the reason why gun-toting killing addicts get a pass?

South Africa Elephant Hunt | Kruger National Park

This is an eight day South African elephant hunt. Hunting takes place in reserves bordering Kruger National Park. Hunters can take one bull elephant no larger than thirty pounds per side. *These hunts are subject to availability.

Hunt includes: Eight days of fully guided hunting, Accommodation, Full Catering, One elephant bull no larger than 30 pound per side, Transportation to and from hunting area (once you arrive)

While the .375 is the legal minimum caliber, there will be no room for error in your shot placement if it is your weapon of choice. Hunt this “big fellow” with the largest rifle you can shoot well; 40 and even 50 caliber rifles with 400 to 500 grain solid bullets would definitely be a good choice. A fifty-yard shot might be considered a long shot on the elephant as most are taken at between 20 and 30 yards.

as long as there
is money to be made
we will always be fighting horrors
such as the ivory trade
but active involvment by
prominent politicians
would sure be a great source
of ammunition
how can a world leader
wisely direct
if he does not show
all god’s creatures
their just respect?
