Greg Hunt (That’s his name, no pun intended), the environment minister, said he had signed an order to prevent the import of the gruesome hunting trophies, effective immediately.
How does stopping canned hunting save the wild lions from extinction? Doesnt a breeding program take the pressure off the natural occurring population and actually stop the decline?
Also see the video about the scimitar horned oryx.
Or he could also have said that his government does not approve of any lion hunting. But no; in a typical government cookie cutter hypocrisy, he had to state it is being done to protect the wild lion population.
Mr Hunt is a liar.
He has no understanding of his own area of supposed expertise (environment ministry). This also means he is stupid because he cant see his logic is twisted and neither has he cared to ask someone who knows.
I rest my case.
