Trump To Reverse Obama's Ban On Slaying Endangered Elephants For Trophies

A ban put in place by the Obama administration in 2014 is about to be reversed, as U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service official confirmed to ABC News today, thus allowing hunters to import back to the United States trophies of elephants they killed in Zimbabwe and Zambia.

The elephants in question are listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act, but there is a provision in the act…

The Fish and Wildlife spokesperson stated that "legal, well-regulated sport hunting as part of a sound management program can benefit the conservation of certain species by providing incentives to local communities to conserve the species and by putting much-needed revenue back into conservation."
