Deny Lisence to Cruel Safari Hunt


Target: Peter Msigwa, Tanzanian Minister of Natural Resources and Tourism

Goal: Fight to keep hunting ban against abusive safari club

Hunters at safari outings have been engaging in horrific acts of abuse and torture against wild animals at Green Mile Safari in Tanzania. The company has been caught allowing customers to run over animals in Jeeps, hunt protected animals with semi-automatic weapons, and even torture animals before killing them. These acts of cruelty are some of the most egregious and blatant displays of unethical hunting behaviors that many safari experts have ever heard of.

Safari operators at Green Mile allowed inexperienced children to shoot animals and watch them suffer and bleed out after poorly-placed shots. Operators also facilitate the killing of young animals such as zebras and gazelles, even sometimes while they are being restrained. Shockingly, safari staff and representatives have even been seen participating in these gruesome killings.

While the company’s hunting license was revoked by the Tanzanian government, Green Mile is currently seeking to change that. It has threatened a lawsuit against the government, claiming that while these actions happened, they were set up by rival safari clubs who masqueraded as customers.

Regardless of who was responsible for the acts of cruelty, the fact remains that safari staff allowed them to happen and even participated. For this reason, it is clear that the owners are unfit to operate a safari club, and therefore should not have their license restored. Your signature will ask Tanzania’s Minister of Natural Resources and Tourism to go to every effort to prevent the reinstatement of licensing to Green Mile Safari.


Dear Mr. Peter Msigwa,

The Green Mile Safari in Tanzania was recently caught allowing clients to perform acts of cruelty against wild and sometimes endangered animals. Safari operators allowed untrained children to handle firearms, allowed animals to be shot with semi-automatic weapons, and even allowed animals to be run over with Jeeps. Safari experts have condemned this behavior as some of the worst violations of hunting ethics they have seen.

The company had their hunting license revoked, but it is fighting hard to get it back with a lawsuit against the government, claiming that the situations were set up by rivals. Despite these claims, the fact remains that the Green Mile Safari staff facilitated acts of cruelty and torture on their tours, and should face appropriate punitive actions for their negligence. I ask that you and your department fight to ensure that the hunting ban is upheld against Green Mile Safari.

    Well said, Rae Bernardette-what kind of morons do we have in this world who take pleasure in torturing and killing animals. They will get their comeuppance though, have no fear-God pays debts without money….

    It is the money that is attractive I expect… Bloodless safari is likely to bring in far more cash!


  5. Stan Benton says:

    Can you imagine what sort of sicko would pay money to engage in a “hunting safari”? Must be somebody with too much money, and nothing worthwhile to spend time on?

  6. Stop handing out licenses indiscriminately! Greatly reduce the number. Hunting wildlife and even endangered animals, is disgusting and immoral.

  7. The big problem in African states like Tanzania is corruption and commitment. The people from government who deals with tourist sector and animal protection they know all these animals death but because of corruption and lack commitment we continue to loose our animals. There is no need of hunting tourism the government must ban all hunting companies.

  8. All hunting should be banned ! No more Licence and poaching of any sort! Protect them now and not tomorrow! We are loosing them too fast and it’s very alarming. The heads of state is all countries where wild animals are poached for their trophies, horns, bones, skin, scales, tusks, pets, or using them for source of income in zoos and circus, in India as transport to amuse tourists should be put to an end and declare total war against this barbaric act!

  9. What do you tell people like native Alaskans who hunt for food and fish for food and eat whale meat? Do you tell them to stop centuries of tradition and diet
