    Canberra’s City News interview with APA – 8 March 2018 – Trophy Hunting

    • Naturally the APA are appalled that anyone gets pleasure out of killing sentient beings, and disgusted that anyone should then want to boast about it.
    • We are relieved that Haridemos has stepped down from his position as VP of the Hellenic Club and pleased to learn that so many members of the public were willing to resign their membership of the Club if it had been willing to retain Haridemos as VP after such revelations.
    • It is perhaps understandable why very poor countries might be willing to grab the quick money by selling their wildlife to trophy hunters but, by allowing pleasure-killers to slaughter endangered wildlife, they are selling out the future of their own people in the long run.
    • There is no such thing as “conservation killing”. Humans and humans alone are responsible for the current world-wide crashing of other animal  species. Assertions that killing even more animals will solve any of the problems humans have caused on the planet are nothing but excuses for pleasure-killers to do yet more killing while pretending to be ‘good guys’ – the ultimate hypocrisy.
    • We hear this same lie in the ACT every year with the mass slaughter of kangaroos which, in fact: are extremely far from abundant; are critical to the survival of other animals and plants that share their habitat; have never been demonstrated cause any damage to the environment at any density; and are killed according to a code of practice that permits gross cruelty (like bashing pouch babies to death and orphaning dependent joeys at foot).

    In our experience no-one does unto animals what they wouldn’t do unto humans if they thought it was socially acceptable. Consequently, while people who kill animals for fun remain at large in our community, no human life is safe, either.
