Thread: Trophy transportation under threat?

  1. #1

    Trophy transportation under threat?


    This month Emirates Airlines and South African Airways have introduced policies not to transport some animal trophies. You can read more here :-

    Now there is an online petition to try to convince America's Delta Airlines to stop shipping animal trophies, headed by what appears to be an animal rights activist. You can see details here :-

    Petition · Delta Air Lines: End the Transport of Exotic Animal Hunting Trophies · Change.org

    Will there come a time when it will become difficult or even impossible to import trophies back to the UK? I thought the above would be worth posting to 'raise awareness' amongst UK hunters.

    Can't they be shipped by sea?

    Sea shipment is always an option. The majority that come back to the UK come via Cargo LUX and are cleared for the EU in Luxembourg. Be interesting to see how it changes going forward.

    Yep. I was just highlighting a growing trend which should be of concern to the hunting community in general.
