"The earth is large enough for all to share, but mankind's heart is not large enough to care."
"Trophy hunting is not a sport. In a sport, BOTH sides should know they're in the game."
Trophy hunting is NOT okay. No matter how many times people try to justify it, trophy hunting is meaningless slaughter, meant for pleasure and worthless trophies.
Ivory is torn from the tusks of elephants, and the horns of rhinos are cut off viciously. Poachers kill already endangered species such as tigers. Heads of lions, panthers, and deer, and the antlers of stag, are severed and hung up on a wall, a tribute to the hunter's inhumane heart.
People dress the idea of trophy hunting in sugar-coated lies. They claim it's a sport, claim it's a hobby, claim it's an important part of their lives. Trophy hunting is no different than serial killing. It might as well be called the same thing.
Trophy hunting should be banned. It is, in many places. But people do it anyways. They sneak into protected sanctuaries, and brutally murder lives. They pose in their fancy stupid little pictures, proudly showing off their disgusting deed. It's a disgusting act.

For those who read this far:
"HUNTERS, every time you pose for a photo with the dead body of an animal you killed, you are simply making a fool of YOURSELF, showing the entire world that you are MORALLY VOID. No matter who you brainwash or bribe, no matter what costumes, gear & trophies you show off, no matter how much marketing & money you invest, no matter how you try to glorify or justify it, ALL your sick traditions & practices-legal or not- are WRONG. TROPHY HUNTING IS MURDER, you have NOTHING to be proud of."
