Travel Restrictions Delay
Elephant Hunt in Botswana
With this worldwide pause, a travel ban has been implemented which will restrict hunters from North America to fly to Botswana. Thus, it is possible that the majority of the hunting permits will go unused.
Siobhan Mitchell, UK Director of Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, reported; “We welcome the fact that foreign trophy hunters cannot kill elephants in Botswana, and hope that the government takes the time to reflect on and rethink its deadly strategy towards elephants and shake off this colonial pastime altogether.”
