Humane Society International/Trophy Hunting:

Why in News ? Trophy hunting is legal in many countries. Between 2005 and 2014, more than 1.26 million wildlife trophies were imported to the U.S, according to a report by Humane Society International.
• Many of the trophies imported from the continent of Africa are ranked as Vulnerable or Threatened endangered species lists.
• SPCA International is firmly against trophy hunting and supports a full ban on the hunting or importing of animal parts from species on endangered species lists.
• Trophy hunting is the hunting of wild animals for sport, not for food. Usually, the animal is stuffed or a body part is kept for display. Most trophy hunters come from rich countries and pay high fees for their hunts.
• Many hunters claim that trophy hunting isn’t bad for animals. They say they are supporting animal conservation.
• The opposite is true, live animals support the population of their species.
• Lions, elephants, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo, from Africa, are some of the most expensive and popular animals targeted in trophy hunting.
