The American hunter, Tess Thompson Talley, became viral after posing with a black giraffe, who killed in South Africa.
The image sparked outrage online
Africa Digest posted the photo on Twitter with the following caption: “White American savage who is partly a neanderthal comes to Africa and shoot down a very rare black giraffe courtesy of South Africa stupidity. Her name is Tess Thompson Talley. Please share. If our so-called governments can’t care for our wildlife then its time we stand up and responsibility of our continent, lands, resources, and wildlife…. share share share! and let’s have a united voice against pillage of Africa, it’s the only home we have. ”
Trophy hunting in South Africa proved to be a lucrative source of commerce for the country, and a major attraction for tourism. Nonetheless, many local people do not believe that financial gain outweighs the loss of South Africa’s wildlife.
According to reports, between 2004 and 2014, it is estimated that about 1.7 million trophies of animals were marketed worldwide …
In recent years, this type hunting has been severely criticized by activists, and several countries have adopted measures as a result. Brazil, India, Kenya and Botswana have completely banned sport, while Australia, France and the Netherlands banned the import of lion trophies.
For now, South Africa remains open to those who seek to kill animals. However, the victory seems to be sliding in the direction of those who want to ban this hunting concept.
Let us hope that these cruel practices are banished once and for all. Wildlife is one of the most precious creations of our planet and something has to be done to save their lives. Share this story if you are against animal abuse!
