Elephant hunting safaris give many Africans jobs and plus their tusks are used for lovely jewelry- why are liberals so against this?
Does the Trump administrations removal of restrictions on elephant hunting...? 1. I'm a hunter and don't agree with this. No challenge in shooting something as big as a house. And I don't shoot anything I don't eat ( except coyotes - invasive species ) 2. It's Legal in those countries and extremely expensive to get the permit. Under the act, hunting trophies, like elephant tusks, can be imported only if the federal government finds that the hunting will aid the long-term survival of the species, such as by funding conservation efforts. So, that means only a certain number of them are allowed to be taken. And it will be a huge revenue boost. Don't agree with it, but there is their reasoning. 3. AK-47 are not used in hunting lol They're illegal and a .30 won't put down an elephant.
Elephant hunting safaris give many Africans jobs and plus their tusks are used for lovely jewelry- why are liberals so against this? Because elephants are endangered and taking off their tusks put them in danger because they use there tusks for a lot of things including defense.
Poll: Have you ever rode on an animal? Yes a horse on a beach and a elephant on a trek while in Thailand.
Has trump now done every single thing he can possibly do to ruin the planet I mean lifting ivory bans for real? Is that just to taunt us? China is the number one consumer of Ivory. How would the US banning it help anything? We are literally powerless to save the great elephant species (African and Asian) from extinction. Thankfully they are being born without tusks due to intense natural selection.
Friends,i m not sure whether God is real,Buddha said there is no God,my intuition tells me He was right. Your opinion? This is an excerpt from a short story I just submitted to "The Economist". AN ELEPHANT NEVER FORGETS After graduating from  Northwestern in 1986, Peter Marks and two friends backpacked around Africa and Asia.    On a hike through the bush in Botswana they came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air.  The elephant seemed distressed and in need of help. It allowed Marks to approach it and he did so very carefully. He got down on one knee and very gently inspected the elephant's foot. He found a large piece of metal from a poacher's trap embedded in the bottom of its foot.   As carefully and as gently as possible he removed the metal with his knife. The elephant gingerly put  down its foot, turned to toward Marks, and with a curious expression, stared at him for several tense seconds. Marks stood there frozen, wondering how the elephant would react.  Then the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and casually walked away. Twenty one years later Marks was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son, Matthew. As they approached the elephant enclosure one turned and walked to where he and his son were standing.  The large bull stared at Marks, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. It did that several times then trumpeted loudly all the while staring at Marks.     Recalling the encounter in 1986 Marks couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant.  Despite several misgivings, he snuck over the rail fence and made his way into the enclosure.  The elephant trotted over to meet him. It looked at him, trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of his legs, and slammed his stupid аss against the railing, killing him instantly. It probably wasn't the same elephant.
