Justice for Massive Elephant Murdered By Hunter

Dead elephant

Target: Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority Director General Mr. E. Chidziya

Goal: Stop giving permits to hunters allowing them to senselessly slaughter endangered animals for sport.

A 40-to-60-year-old elephant was shot down by another big game hunter not long after the outrage over the death of Cecil the lion. The hunting community is celebrating the death of this majestic creature, thought to be the largest elephant killed in 30 years. In the photo the hunter took to show off his kill, the massive tusks touch the ground while the elephant kneels in death.

This “community” of big game hunters appears to have been totally unaffected by the widespread anger and grief over the death of Cecil. This yet unnamed hunter paid $60,000 for the right to legally hunt elephants, leopards, lions, buffalo and rhinoceros. It seems that the only way to protect these animals, many of which are under severe threat of extinction, is to demand that countries stop giving out permits for these rich big game hunters to kill animals for fun and bragging rights.

With the poaching of elephants on the rise leading to a drastic decline in elephant populations in just the past few years, we cannot sit back and allow the hunting of these animals to be legal in any form. Sign our petition to demand that Zimbabwe immediately cease issuing big game hunting permits so that innocent animals like Cecil and this elephant never end up dead for the sake of some hunter’s social media page again.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Chidziya,

Another majestic animal has been shot dead by a big game hunter for bragging rights. This elephant, which has been yet unidentified, is thought to be the biggest of its species killed in around 30 years and might have been the biggest left in the wild. It was probably 40 to 60 years old, but its life was cut short by a European hunter who paid $60,000 for a permit to hunt elephants, leopards, lions, buffalo and rhinoceros.

I understand that your country gets a lot of money for these permits. However, there are other ways to make money. If people keep legally and illegally killing these animals, there will soon be none left in the world and you will no longer have that source of income at all. If you instead make more of an effort to conserve and protect them, you’ll be able to bring in tourists for many, many years who can pump money into your economy without killing anything.

Please stop selling permits to big game hunters who just want to kill your local fauna so they can pose with the corpses and brag about it to their rich friends. These people are exploiting and systematically killing off the beauty of your country and increasing the risk of extinction for lions, elephants, leopards, and other threatened animals. Please make an effort to stop these legal killings.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I wouldn’t shed a tear if the killer was caught, held captive, found dead and unrecognizable a week later. I’ll go to my grave wondering why people get a thrill in shooting a helpless and trusting creature for no other reason than to brag to their friends and to watching it die in agony. These sick bastards need to be put down.

  6. The problem with allowing hunters to pay for the right to shoot animals in parks is the fact that the money they pay for one animal to be killed saves many more. Those 60000 dollars went for gas, gear and wages for the rangers that actually fight poachers in the first line.
    This isn’t right. The poor animal shouldn’t had to die. But before demanding something, people should acknowledge the consequences – if the parks stop offering hunters a chance to hunt, they would have zero income and those parks would be swallowed by poachers who would kill EVERYTHING in the matter of weeks.
    Those parks NEED money to function. If you want to stop those hunters from killing more animals, find another way of income for them. Donate. Spread the word. But don’t shut them down.

  7. Zimbabwe what are you allowing! Why and how do you allow a.magnificent creature that walked the earth and loved to be brutally wiped out with a mass of bullets or poison or whatever the hell bullshit selfish ignorant ugly humans do! You honestly cant do any better than this?

  8. KINDNESS IS THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE IN THIS WORLD ~ IT LEADS US TO WISDOM -v.n.
