Emirates Airline Bans Hunting Trophies from its Cargo

Another victory for the fight against trophy hunting. Emirates Airline recently announced that it will no longer allow passengers to bring along hunting trophies onboard.

The world’s biggest international carrier joins South African Airlines in banning transport of lions, tigers elephants, rhinos and other wild animals killed through hunting on to their planes.

It’s no secret that Africa is suffering from a huge problem with a growing number of these “trophy hunters” — otherwise known as wealthy tourists who travel to the continent to legally kill wild animals and have them transported home to show them off — as if killing an innocent animal is something to be proud of. (Don’t even get Ricky Gervais started on this topic. Or maybe, yes, please do.)

Those who support trophy hunting — yes, those people do exist — say that banning the transport of trophies will do little to help the dwindling number of wild animals. Instead, they want animal activists to stand against illegal poaching.

Both issues are critical in sustaining wildlife, and we applaud Emirates Airlines in taking a stand against the atrocious “hobby.” We hope that more airlines — Delta, are you listening? — will follow its lead in banning all trophies from being transported on planes.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
