Leave it to Reddit users to expose a home filled with so much death, one can’t even quite comprehend the loss.
In the one image above, I personally can count twenty animals. However, more images and more animals can be found on the original link. The Reddit user sweete_d who posted the photos wrote, “Invited to dinner party, I was given no warning.” They continued, “I could have taken 15 more pictures, there were around 50-75 animals covering every inch of the house. None were purchased, the family goes to Africa for 6 weeks every year and has a gun vault the size of most peoples homes.”
Many countries allow trophy hunting and don’t monitor the impact, according to Humane Society International. However, the organization is trying to combat the cruel practice by highlighting the financial benefits of ecotourism. Most people who travel to see lions or rhinoceros want to see them in their natural habitat and have no interest in killing for “sport.”
Sadly, trophy hunting is an activity that many wealthy people seem to enjoy. Just remember Donald Trump’s son. A person could be charged tens of thousands of dollars to hunt an animal such as one in the picture above. Just think of what those funds could do if they were used for species preservation instead of trophy hunting.
