Voice of the Mirror: It’s time to kill off this sick trophy hunting ‘sport’ – Voice of the Mirror


Killing monkeys for fun is a sick, twisted bloodsport for sick, twisted people.

No reputable publication or platform should carry adverts for this stomach-churning slaughter and Britons who get a kick out of firing guns or bows and arrows deserve to be hunted down then named and shamed.

Trophy hunting, which the Daily Mirror wants banned, is barbaric and arguments that it funds conservation are a transparent, pathetic attempts to justify the unjustifiable.

Park rangers culling wildlife is occasionally necessary but there is no acceptable reason for Britons to pay to kill monkeys for a laugh.

If we wish to live up to our reputation as a civilised nation, we must stop these misfits with a bloodlust flying out to Africa or wherever to kill wild animals.

Encouraging children to take part only underlines how depraved they really are.
