Trophy Hunter Accused of Slaughtering Rare Snow Leopard and Bragging About His Kills on Amazon Must be Punished

Target: Ryan Zinke, U.S. Secretary of the Interior

Goal: Bring man accused of illegally killing a rare snow leopard to display its body parts as trophies to justice.

It is illegal to kill snow leopards, and even to own their body parts or fur, in the U.S. and across the Western hemisphere, but one trophy hunter reportedly brought the remains of a snow leopard he killed back to America and boasted of his “accomplishment.” Importing the remains of a snow leopard into the U.S. is a federal offense, but this man, Hossein Soudy Golabchi, has not been prosecuted.

Golabchi has also apparently written a book about hunting exotic animals that is sold on Amazon. The book description brags that “once you have reached such a phenomenal number [of kills] you can only write a book about the most interesting hunts and the highlights of your career.” This is disgusting.

It is crucial for snow leopards that illegal hunts be stopped. The organization Defenders of Wildlife has estimated that only about 3,500-7,000 snow leopards remain in the wild (the creatures’ shy nature makes knowing the exact number difficult to determine). They must be protected, and if poaching and trophy hunting goes unchecked, the species could go extinct soon. Sign below to demand that Hossein Soudy Golabchi be prosecuted now.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary of the Interior Zinke,

Snow leopards are a species that must be protected, and to allow them to be illegally killed as trophies is unacceptable. Hossein Soudy Golabchi, a trophy hunter who moved to the U.S. when he was young, is accused of bringing back the remains of a rare snow leopard he had poached and bragging of his “accomplishment.” This would be a federal offense and must not be allowed to stand.

Allowing this sort of cruelty could put the entire snow leopard population in the wild at risk. As Tiger Exotic Animal Ranger Awareness International stated, “Snow leopards have never been numerous. The thought of a wealthy American specifically seeking one out to destroy its life is unfathomable. It also damages the communities around the snow leopard. He needs to be the example and needs to be in prison.” I urge you to ensure that Hossein Soudy Golabchi is prosecuted for these alleged crimes.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
