End Trophy Hunting of Endangered African Leopards

533px-leopard_standing_in_tree_2_caelio

Target: Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe

Goal: Save the African leopard from extinction by banning trophy hunting in Africa’s sub-Sahara.

The amount of African leopards has plummeted by 30 percent over the past two decades, according to conservationists and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. If nothing is done to protect this species, which resides in Africa’s sub-Sahara, the animal may be added to the world’s ever-growing list of endangered species.

The largest reason the number of African leopards has decreased is due to trophy hunting. In fewer than ten years, over 10,000 African leopards were hunted and traded as trophies. America is one of the largest importers of these animals. While some laws prevent the trade of animals internationally, those same laws do not prevent international trades of hunting trophies.

The African leopard should not be a trophy for someone to show off. It is a living animal; it is a majestic animal. To kill it with a gun is not brave and not worthy of a trophy. It is cowardly and sickening and must be brought to an end before the African leopard disappears from the sub-Sahara forever. Sign the petition to demand that trophy hunting be banned to protect this animal.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Mugabe,

Your nation of Zimbabwe makes much money from trophy hunting licenses. However, in the process, you are losing the majestic, unique animal species that call your nation home and make it one of the world’s environmental wonders. The African leopard, only one of the many animals hunted for sport and displayed as a trophy, has seen its numbers plummet by 30 percent.

Your nation was the center of public scrutiny after Cecil the lion was brutally murdered for sport. Do not let another animal die at the hands of a weapon. Do not let your nation once again be seen as one where the lives of animals are disregarded. I ask that you bring a ban to trophy hunting so that the African leopard and other animals may continue to live in your nation. Present your nation as one where these beautiful animals are observed, respected, and cherished, not murdered.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The ONLY kind of hunting that should be done ANYWHERE are photo safaris. Living, breathing beautiful animals are worth so much more for your economy. Please understand this.
    Say NO to any monster that waves $$$ at you. It’s NOT worth the slaughter.

  4. Only a psychopath would take pleasure in taking the life of an innocent being.
    These people are dangerous, they are defective.

  5. ONCE THESE BEAUTIFUL(AND OTHER WILDLIFE) CREATURES ARE GONE ZIMBABWE CAN KISS TOURISM AND THE MONEY THAT COMES WITH IT GOODBYE BECAUSE TOURIST’S DON’T WANT TO SEE YOU WORTHLESS PEOPLE!
