Please Urge NBC Sports to Cancel Big Game Hunting Show
Please click HERE to sign and send letter
In a recent episode of Under Wild Skies—a National Rifle Association (NRA)–sponsored big game hunting show that airs on NBC Sports—NRA lobbyist Tony Makris, the show’s host, joked as he killed a bull elephant in Africa for his personal enjoyment. This is reportedly not the only elephant Makris has killed for Under Wild Skies. We urge you to join PETA in demanding that NBC cancel the show immediately.
It has been well established that elephants are capable of experiencing emotions, including joy, anger, grief, and sympathy. Killing a single elephant can devastate a family, and their mourning ritual over the death of a family member rivals any that we humans have developed. Elephants play with each other, can reason and use tools, have exceptional memories, and form enduring bonds with other elephants. They work together and comfort and protect each other. Elephant offspring stay with their mothers for many years—males for up to 15 years and females for their entire lives.
In addition to killing multiple elephants while making Under Wild Skies, Makris, who is depicted on the show’s website in a photograph with two dead male lions, has also reportedly hunted rhinos and leopards for the show.
Please take a moment to demand that NBC Sports cancel Under Wild Skies immediately!
