Trophy Hunter Killed Rare Black Giraffe In South Africa Causing OutrageAndrea Powell
Trophy hunting is viewed more and more as a cruel act against innocent animals. Some of the world’s most magnificent animals are being murdered for “sport”. The battle against trophy hunting rages on with the latest killing of a giraffe.
The public is outraged at the latest trophy hunting display. An American female hunter, Tess Thompson Talley, killed a rare black giraffe on a hunting trip in South Africa. The gentle animal is slumped over behind the woman. It is a heartbreaking image.
She posted pictures of her posing next to the dead body. With the status, “Prayers for my once in a lifetime Dream hunt came true today. Spotted this rare black giraffe bull and stalked him for quite awhile. I knew it was the one. He was over 18 years old, 4,000 lbs and was blessed to be able to get 2,000 lbs of meat from him.” This opened the flood gates for people to oppose the disgusting act.
Africa Digest was completely disgusted and posted, “White American savage who is partly a neanderthal comes to Africa and shoot down a very rare black giraffe courtesy of South Africa stupidity. Her name is Tess Thompson Talley. Please share. If our so-called governments can’t care for our wildlife then its time we stand up and responsibility of our continent, lands, resources, and wildlife…. share share share! and let’s have a united voice against pillage of Africa, it’s the only home we have.”
While the business of allowing trophy hunters come to South Africa to hunt exotic animals has been lucrative, locals do not believe that outweighs the devastation to the species. South Africa’s wildlife needs to be protected and no price is worth the life of an innocent animal.
Many of the animals that trophy hunters kill are classified as being threatened by extinction by the IUCN. Other countries have already banned trophy hunting to preserve their wildlife. All countries need to adopt that policy.
