Tim Allen Must Stop Supporting Trophy Hunting Auction

Target: Tim Allen, Actor

Goal: Do not perform at an auction offering permits to kill hundreds of wild animals worldwide.

Beloved actor and comedian Tim Allen has drawn criticism from animal lovers and animal welfare supporters for his agreed participation at an upcoming convention held by Safari Club International (SCI). The group is infamous for granting hundreds of permits each year to kill over 600 wild animals in countries worldwide, and Tim Allen’s decision to perform at the group’s annual convention is a form of support.

Safari Club International is the world’s largest organization for trophy hunters. Its annual convention, held in Las Vegas, is expected to draw tens of thousands of bidders eager to win permits to kill lions, bears, wolves and other threatened species in over 30 countries. Trophy hunting is unnecessary and results in a wasteful loss of life, while putting many species in danger of extinction.

Allen has previously criticized trophy hunters, including SCI member Walter Palmer, who slaughtered Cecil the Lion in 2015. His recent decision to perform for this high profile event is disappointing. Sign the petition below to urge him to reconsider and to put his support behind efforts that will bring trophy hunting to an end.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Allen,

Your decision to take part in Safari Club International’s upcoming annual auction in Las Vegas is deeply disappointing. SCI is the largest trophy hunting organization, and is responsible for handing out permits for the wanton killing of many big game species, including rhinos, lions and grizzly bears. By participating at this event, you are implicitly sending a message that you support trophy hunting and will be giving further publicity to this shameful auction.

You have previously expressed your dismay for the actions of trophy hunters, such as SCI member Walter Palmer, who was responsible for the senseless killing of Cecil the Lion. We, the undersigned, urge you to act on principle and choose not to lend your support or participation for this inhumane event, and to instead focus on efforts that will put an end to trophy hunting worldwide.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Another idiot celebrity added to my boycott list.

    • I agree Teresa. I always thought Tim Allen was a “b” actor anyway. This just shows he isn’t even that. Too bad….people in the spotlight have the opportunity to advocate for good or evil. It’s a shame Tim Allen isn’t more compassionate and humane.
