EXCLUSIVE INVESTIGATION: Safari bosses have pulled their sickest stunt yet – by encouraging children as young as four to shoot and kill exotic African wildlife with military-grade sniper rifles

Bloodthirsty parents are paying for kids as young as four to slaughter exotic animals in Africa – as safari bosses sink to new depths with depraved “U10s go free” trophy hunting packages.

One shocking picture shows a bloodstained schoolboy grinning as he stands over the antelope he slaughtered just moments before with a military-grade sniper rifle.

A Daily Star Online investigation revealed that he was among dozens of kids taken on “family friendly” hunting trips to the African subcontinent – with trophy hunting firms offering bespoke deals for youngsters in a desperate bid to “inspire the next generation of hunters”.

Some let children under 10 hunt for free, while others throw in free taxidermy so they can mount their conquests on their bedroom walls.

Others offer to hire professional videographers to film first kills in HD, or offer huge first-time discounts.

Several of the firms rake in hundreds of thousands by giving punters the chance to kill elephants, lions, leopards and rhinos.

The endangered beasts are slaughtered with rifles and crossbows before their corpses are harvested for trophy mounts.

Comedian and animal campaigner Ricky Gervais led condemnation of the brutal trade and blasted our “depressing” findings.

Ricky Gervais said the pictures were ‘depressing’ when we showed them to him last night

 

He raged: “I don’t see sport here. I see abuse.

“There are studies that show the link between the effects of violence on animals and the legacy it imposes on children.

“Serial killers start with animals. Why would any parent take these pointless risks with the psychological wellbeing of their children?

“Kids will do anything to gain approval and respect from their role models – even killing a beautiful wild animal for fun.”

South Africa’s Cheetah Safaris helped the four-year-old to shoot a Kudu from point-blank range.

Sickening pictures posted on Instagram reveal that his eyebrow was split open by the scope’s recoil.

The caption read: “Gerhard became a real hunter and shot his first kudu today at four years old!

“Had to deal with hunter consequences and got a scope eye. Now nothing is safe!”

Founder Pieter Bothma also runs a firm with a “big five” combination deal where millionaires can slaughter an elephant, a lion, a white rhino, and a cape buffalo on the same trip.

The sick offer is so exclusive that the full price is only available on request.

South African hunter Carl van Zyl – who offers millionaires the chance to shoot elephants, lions and white rhinos – offers to cover the fee of any U18 who wants to kill.

His John X Safaris firm lets kids hunt dozens of at-risk species in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Mozambique, Cameroon, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Congo and Ethiopia.

Van Zyl vows to match the “investment” of any parent who wants to hunt with their children.

He wrote: “We’re passionate about the next generation of hunters.

“In fact, we’re so passionate we’ve taken it upon ourselves to match your investment in their hunt, ultimately our hunting future, by matching the cost of getting them to Africa.

“We figured if you were willing to buy the flight we’d be happy to sponsor the day fee.

“As hunters we need more kids out in the field each day. Bring them along on safari to Africa and help us as we inspire the next generation of hunters.”

Texan surgeon Toby Risko booked a ‘spring break’ hunting trip through the company for his family of four last year.

He paid extra for a “state of the art” production company to film his nine-year-old twins slaughtering gazelle and zebra.

Got The Shot productions claim their “broadcast quality” package will ensure each hunt is “immortalised for generations.”

Shocking footage from the resulting 45-minute film shows his daughter gunning down a zebra with a tripod-mounted sniper rifle.

She stands triumphantly on its corpse as a guide gushes: “She’s small but feisty and tough. She’s going to be a great huntress.”

In a testimonial for John X Safaris’ glossy annual magazine, she says: “My favourite part was shooting my zebra stallion because he is so pretty and big.”

Her twin brother added: “I liked that I was able to shoot so many animals and I’m only nine.”

Rival company Rosedale Safaris charges £20,000 to shoot a leopard, £2,100 for a giraffe, and offer “unlimited” monkeys as part of a £2,600 package deal.

Its owners Charl and Julia La Roux helped a five-year-old boy shoot a “huge” Blesbuck for £310.

In a testimonial on the firm’s website, his father gushed: “The highlight of the hunt was when Charl guided my five-year-old son to his first animal ever.”

In 2015 American dentist Walter Palmer sparked international outrage when he paid £35,0000 to kill Cecil the lion .

Two local hunters illegally lured Cecil from a protected area to hand Palmer the kill.

And Golden Safaris put on a 10-day bonding package for dads and their sons.

The “exceptional value” deal includes a stay at the luxury Free State lodge – where hunters can tackle some of Africa’s most endangered wildlife.

The site boasts: “If hunting plains game does not get your heart racing, four of the Big Five (buffalo, elephant, lion and white rhino) are also available.

“The father and son hunting package strives to offer dads wishing to enjoy an African hunting experience with their sons a cost-effective and enjoyable safari experience.

“The trophies in the package are to be shared by fathers and sons.”

Eduardo Goncalves, founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, told Daily Star Online: “These pictures are heartbreaking.

“More and more trophy hunting operators are getting children to shoot and pose with animals they’ve killed.

“This is a sick and immoral industry in every way. Somehow, though, they have managed to hit a new low.

We should not be indoctrinating children that it’s ok to take the life of something for “This is a sick and immoral industry in every way. Somehow, though, they have managed to hit a new low.

We should not be indoctrinating children that it’s ok to take the life of something for entertainment.

“Some of the world’s worst criminals started out as animal abusers, including Jon Venables – one of the murderers of Jamie Bulger – and Ian Huntley, the Soham killer.

“Trophy hunting has been linked to a host of other violent crimes including domestic violence.

“If we want to breed a new generation of murderers and wife-beaters, then this is the way to go about it.

“Daily Star Online readers will be horrified at these images, and rightly so. These kids are barely old enough to walk and already they’re being brainwashed by bloodthirsty animal killers.”

Downton Abbey actor Peter Egan added: “Trophy hunters are killing huge numbers of animals, many of them threatened with extinction.

“We should be stamping out all forms of abuse and so-called ‘sport’ hunting.”

Switzerland: pioneer in animal welfare

 

Arosa village prohibits advertising for fur products.

 

switzerland pg

The sophisticated holiday resort in Graubünden, Switzerland, known for guaranteed snow and wonderful ski slopes is now making headlines because the municipality has decided to ban all advertising in the village for fur products in the future.

FOUR PAWS congratulates the Arosa municipal board on this decision and congratulates on this courageous, innovative and far-sighted action. Arosa is a holiday resort in the Alpental Schanfigg in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. The place is known for its lakes, ski slopes and hiking trails such as the “Squirrels Way”.

This means that Arosa has a lot of tourism all year round.

The holiday destination is therefore very trendy. Because even large luxury brands such as Chanel, Burberry and Gucci have been doing without furs for some time.

FOUR PAWS sees the ban on advertising fur products as an important signal for other tourist locations to do the same to Arosa.

Pascal Jenny, Arosa’s tourism director, explains the decision for fur-free advertising in the village as follows: «Arosa is a pioneer and already shows with the Arosa Bear Country how animal welfare and tourism work together in an exemplary manner. This advertising ban is a logical next step on this path. »

In the opinion of FOUR PAWS, the decision shows that ethical fashion and animal welfare have also become enormously important in tourism. Instead of real fur cruelty to animals, modern consumers today also want sustainability and innovation in this area.

«It is really a forward-looking message that Arosa is no longer advertising fur products. Hopefully many Swiss tourism destinations and municipalities will follow this example. Arosa advertises with sustainable tourism and shows impressively that it can be put into action ».
Alexandra Mandoki, Country Head of FOUR PAWS Switzerland.

The fur industry kills more than 100 million animals each year. Mink, fox and raccoon dogs suffer on fur farms in tiny wire cages, other species die a cruel death by falling. High amounts of dangerous chemicals are used to process fur for fur fashion.

FOUR PAWS has been working internationally on the subject of fur for many years and is committed to an import ban on fur products in Switzerland.

And I mean…Thanks to responsible for tourism in the village Arosa.

Switzerland has banned the hobby of hunting in the canton of Geneva since 1974, with a popular vote.

Since then they have only received positive results on the regulation of wild animal populations in the canton.

In Zurich, animals have lawyers! that is the Swiss Antoine F. Goetschel, who officially has the job of the animal advocate for the Canton of Zurich.

The Swiss have banned transito animal transports through their country, I quote from the Swiss Transport Regulations:
A transit ban applies for the transit of cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, horses and poultry by truck through Switzerland.

And in Switzerland the journey time for animal transports from the loading point may not exceed six hours (Art. 15 Para. 1 TSchG).

I live just an hour from Switzerland and visit the country at least three times a year.
And I like to do it!

Thanks Switzerland!

My best regards to all, Venus

Germany! your hunters and murderer

 

Hanau: Hobby hunter murders 11 people

tobis rathjenpgTobis Rathjen.

 

In the Hessian city of Hanau, nine people were killed and six injured. The police find the alleged gunman and another person lifeless in an apartment.
The killer had previously killed his mother (72). A letter of confession and a video are currently being evaluated.
According to police circles and tagesschau.de, the man has a hunting license and a corresponding gun possession card.

Ammunition and magazines were said to have been in his vehicle. In addition, he is said to have been active as a sports shooter.
According to initial information, it should be the 43-year-old German Tobis Rathjen.

All victims, except the perpetrator’s mother, have a migration background. Five of them were Turkish citizens. The rest of the people came from Poland, Bulgaria, Romania and Bosnia. Some also had the German passport.

According to information from security circles, a letter of confession has been found.

The man was convinced that he would be monitored in all possible phases and areas of life – by “an organization that operates on the basis of a secret service but does not appear officially by name”.

The wild animals have a terror problem from the right for decades.

In his “essay” there are also various right-wing extremist and xenophobic statements – in his opinion it is not enough to identify certain ethnic groups because their existence is “in itself a fundamental mistake” (typical hunter’s ideas – see for example foxes or neo-zoos– Editor’s note). A number of peoples must be “completely destroyed”, including half of Asia, various ethnic groups from North Africa and Israel.

Whoever gets the hunting license always receives two things: a license for killing and a license for stupid.

Many hobby hunters are gunmen and active in shooting clubs. In addition, amateur hunters also commit a striking number of violent offenses in Germany, but only the tip of the iceberg appears in the media.

A look at the hunting statistics also shows the full extent of the culture of violence in the milieu.

And I mean…As long as his victims were from other species, he was allowed to continue murdering and nobody was interested.
Now he kills 11 human animals and everyone is horrified.

My best regards to all, Venus
