Rp from @animal radical - **BREAKING NEWS** Just saw this. It’s also all over the news and Twitter! Praying 🙏🏼 that this is true. _ #Repost @antipoachingsa ・・・ Please let this be true. President Trump called elephant hunting a “horror show” Sunday and strongly suggested he will permanently block imports of elephant trophies from two African nations despite his administration’s earlier approval of the practice. Following strong bipartisan criticism of the administration’s decision to allow imports of trophy carcasses, a practice was halted under the Obama administration, Trump had moved Friday to put the imports on hold. On Sunday, Trump said on Twitter that he would announce a final decision this week. He suggested that he does not buy the argument advanced by pro-hunting advocates within his Interior Department that the imports help protect endangered African elephants. Trump wrote that he would be “very hard pressed to change my mind that this horror show in any way helps conservation of Elephants or any other animal.” For the full article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2017/11/19/trump-calls-elephant-hunting-a-horror-show-and-suggests-hell-enforce-a-ban-on-trophy-imports/
@Regranned from @elephant_news_network - 💥BREAKING NEWS💥 As a follow up to Mr Trump's statement regarding the review of reversing the ban on trophy hunting imports back into the US. According to a report from Huffington Post, Mr Trump has recently called trophy hunting a "horror show" adding that he's unlikely to change his mind and allow such imports. Big - game trophy decision will be announced next week but will be hard pressed to change my mind that this horror show in any way helps conservation of Elephants or any other animal" he posted on Twitter on Sunday evening. It is without a doubt that we need to keep up the pressure to ensure the voice of the people, for not only elephants but all wildlife is represented and heard. @elephant_news_network #ennwecare Headliner credit - Huffington Post.

Please read and do the same. Elephants need all of our voices. Let's help them! - Rp from @gm4er - GMFER has posted the following on www.fws.gov — the website for the US Dept. of Fish and Wildlife Service — the government office responsible for revoking the ban on elephant trophies. WILL YOU POST YOUR OWN COMMENT THERE AS WELL? “Please do NOT revoke the ban on transporting “trophies” from safari hunts in Zimbabwe and Zambia. Elephants and Lions — and so many other species— are desperately fighting for their survival. For the US government to sanction killing these species for fun is a deplorable position to take. Like it or not, we stand as an example to other cultures. Let us stand for conservation, not depredation." The phone number for the Dept of Fish and Wildlife is 202 208 4717. The web site is www.fws.gov They have a comment form. FLOOD THEM WITH PHONE CALLS AND EMAILS.
@Regranned from @dp4k m - Hey good people, meet Ryan Zinke, United States Secretary of the Interior and architect of the plan, to allow American trophy hunters the opportunity to import their elephant trophies, from Zimbabwe and Zambia. He's a former member of the Montana senate, Navy Seal and hunting enthusiast. I can't find any relevant education in the subject or work experience, but as hunters keep insisting, they just know everything about CONservation! Letting the alcoholic run the pub springs to mind, and I'm hoping your proverbial work head is on the chopping block, come your meeting with the President. I can cross my fingers anyway. #BanTrophyHunting #ExposeTrophyHunting #trophyhuntingismurder #trophyhuntersarecowards #trophyhuntersarepsychopaths #theconinconservation Via @XposeTrophyHunting PLEASE TAG & SHARE!! - #ryanzinke #wildlifecrime #shameonyou #usa #donaldtrump

Chonburi zoo attraction forces elephants to swim underwater for people _ AFP News Agency recently released a surprising video that seems to endorse a possibly abusive elephant attraction that opened late last year at Thailand’s #KhaoKheowOpenZoo One of the park’s most popular draws, the elephant swimming pool attracts scores of families and children who watch the underwater show from the comfort of an indoor theater. _ In the 49-second AFP clip, the elephant is forced to swim to the bottom of the pool six times as he is ridden and prodded by a mahout, who also pulls on his ears. On the other side of the barrier, children hit the glass and try to get the animal’s attention while hordes of parents film the sad event. _ The elephant, meanwhile, seems for all the world like it’s simply trying to get back to the surface to breathe. Apparently, 10 elephants live at the Chonburi zoo and the video says that they perform two swimming shows per day. The rest of their days are spent giving rides in the zoo’s “safari” exhibit. _ While elephants can and do swim, even long distances, they swim with their trunks above water, using the appendage as a natural snorkel to help them breathe, according to Wild Animal Park. At the Chonburi zoo, they are forced to dive below the water, submerging trunk and all. _ Full Story: https://coconuts.co/bangkok/news/chonburi-zoo-attraction-forces-elephants-swim-underwater-people-video/

Rp from @donnamaria1961 - 🚨🚨🚨 #Repost @worldanimalnews ・・・ @realdonaldtrump The facts should have been reviewed ahead of time! Keep the ban on importing elephant trophies and include lions as well as other wild animals from Zambia & Zimbabwe to the U.S. You will be saving these precious species from extinction! 🚨🚨🚨 - FACTS: The elephant population dropped by 30% from 2007 to 2014, a loss of 144,000 elephants.

@Regranned from @naturemama77 - Let’s hope this sticks. Keep fighting for them- no matter what. #Repost @dp4k m ・・・ #Repost @michsygold 🎉🎉🎉In the face of widespread public #backlash , President Donald #Trump announced late Friday that he has suspended his decision to reverse an Obama-era ban on the importation of #elephanttrophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia. “Put #biggametrophy decision on hold until such time as I review all #conservation facts,” he posted to Twitter. He adding that the issue has been “under study for years” but that he would soon provide an update. As HuffPost reported Wednesday, the administration decided to lift the ban after determining that #sporthunting in those African countries will help conserve the species, a spokesperson for the #USFishandWildlifeService confirmed. The decision was made public not by the federal agency but via a celebratory news release early Tuesday from #SafariClubInternational , a #trophyhunting advocacy group that, along with the #NationalRifleAssociation , sued to block the 2014 ban. Greg Sheehan, principal deputy director of the #FWS , broke the news to the hunting organization during the African Wildlife Consultative Forum in Tanzania, an agency spokesperson told HuffPost. The forum, which ended Friday, is being hosted by the Safari Club International Foundation and the United Republic of Tanzania. #savewildlife #saveelephants #savelions - #elephant #elephants #elefante #babyelephant #africanelephant #trophyhunting #donaldtrump #trump #ryanzinke #wildlife #wildlifecrime #extinction #photooftheday #picoftheday #animalsofinstagram

Rp from @action4ifaw - While the Trump administration suggests otherwise this week, there are economically-viable alternatives to #trophyhunting that consider individual animals and local communities. Sadly, this recent move will undermine conservation efforts by IFAW and other partners to protect endangered species in the region, and will negatively impact progress made to date. 🐘 In addition, this decision is NOT representative of the American people. In a nationwide poll, 9 out of 10 Americans said they do not support trophy hunting of #endangeredspecies
@Regranned from @malkiaq - Today I decided to give all the attention for my beloved elephants 🐘❤️ Tomorrow I will post our animals from #malkiapark Thank you for your support and understanding 🙏🏻 #Repost @dswt We are deeply disappointed to hear that the United States is lifting its ban on elephant trophies. Despite being listed as a vulnerable species, hunters that legally kill an elephant in Zimbabwe and Zambia between 2016–2018 will now be able to obtain a permit to import their ‘trophy’ into the US. We strongly believe that no animal should be hunted for ‘sport’ in the name of conservation. Reversing the trophy import ban imposed in 2014, which was aimed at protecting the species, is a backward step for ethical conservation efforts. • If you feel equally disappointed, there are a few meaningful actions that you can take to help.
