In 2015 @delta , @united and @americanair announced they would ban all shipments of lion, leopard, elephants, rhinoceros and buffalo trophies following the brutal murder of Cecil the Lion. The world turned its attention to the barbaric practice of trophy hunting and the plight that rare and endangered animals face, especially in Africa. And that uproar is already being channeled into meaningful change. -
Delta, United and American airlines, reflecting the wishes of the vast majority of Americans who oppose hunting of imperiled species as seen by a popular Change.org online petition, announced they would ban all shipments of lion, leopard, elephants, rhinoceros and buffalo trophies, effective immediately.-
The question now arises following the Trump Administration's decision to reverse a ban from the Obama Adminstration to permit elephant trophies into the US (on a case by case basis), will the airlines continue to honour their word or give in to greed and profit?
