Mental head trophy hunters use sick website to book “click and kill” holidays – so they can shoot vulnerable species for kicks.
Almost all the animals on BookYourHunt are exempt from forthcoming UK legislation aimed at banning the import of hunting souvenirs such as skins, antlers and heads.
The website has up to 5,000 hunts available for animals such as reindeer (£1,373), striped hyenas (£14,815), golden jackals (£542) and the African civet cat (£848).
They are not considered sufficiently at risk of extinction to make the Government’s designated categories of species to be covered by the new law.
But all are on a “red list” compiled by global animal rights body the International Union for the Conservation of Nature which considers them near threatened or vulnerable.
Others on the hunt list include camels, kangaroos and even sheep.
Eduardo Goncalves, founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, said: “This is a click-to-kill catalogue which sick psychos browse before choosing a defenceless animal to shoot for fun.
“It’s a one-stop snuff shop for hunters who love to kill for thrills. There’s something for every animal murderer.”
Explorer Ranulph Fiennes said: “This is the most hideous website I have ever heard of. It’s advertising animals like you’re doing a weekly shop, except the photos show bloodthirsty psychopaths grinning moronically over the dead animals they’ve killed for fun.
“Trophy imports like these should be banned, they’re an absolute disgrace.”
MPs are signing a cross-party Commons motion to press ministers to include less endangered species in the new law – and jail time for offenders.
Tory MP David Amess, who is behind the move, said: “We should ensure all animals are protected from those who take pleasure in killing them for entertainment and furnishings. We must settle for nothing less than a total ban.”
