Hunters are facing a trophy kill import ban … but campaign participants warn that the law should not be exposed to abuse

  • Hunters will be totally banned from bringing trophy kills back to the UK.
  • Since 2019, more than 300 endangered carcasses have been shipped to the UK
  • This move happens two years after the Tories promised to ban the import of trophy kills.


Hunters are supposed to ban trophy kills back to the UK altogether, which was confirmed last night.

Ministers will announce this move this week as figures show that more than 300 endangered carcasses have been shipped to the UK since 2019.

However, they are faced with warnings from campaign participants and celebrities that policies should not allow hunters to “continue business as usual.”

Two years after the Tories promised to ban the import of trophy killings. Sir Ashcroft, who has been rallying for a long time to end wildlife abuse, wrote in today’s Daily Mail: ‘

Graeme and Greig Blundell, fathers and sons from Kinross, Scotland, are depicted with zebras.

Meanwhile, Dame Judi Dench, a proponent of the trophy hunting ban campaign, said: It’s a policy that has gained a lot of support. “

Boris Johnson used to call imports a “bad trade.” His father, Stanley Johnson, campaigned in favor of the ban.

According to government sources, this week outlines the next steps in travel, “providing promised changes that are comprehensive, robust and effective, and help protect thousands of species.”

Claire Thomas, Executive Director of the UK for Campaign Group Humane International, said: And hopefully it’s not a ban full of loopholes that allow hunters to continue their business as usual.

To put pressure on the MPs to force the move, a group campaign banning trophy hunting will release a book that will ashamed 75 Britons. Some of them boast of killing hundreds of animals.

Their name was found on the website of Umlilo Safaris, a South African company that offers slaughter of more than 50 species. A “combo package” for lions and killing lions will be charged £ 9,175.

Eduardo Goncalves, founder of the trophy hunting ban campaign, said: It is our view that offenders will be sentenced to imprisonment.
