THE MIRROR – WARREN MANGER
A trophy hunter poses with pride beside the young elephant he has just killed. Philip Glass shows no remorse and even boasts: “God says we have dominion over the animals . That means we can do what we choose with them.”
He is so convinced of his divine right to shoot big game, he also agreed to be filmed hunting a lion and hippo in South Africa for shocking new film Trophy.
The documentary ’s grim footage comes after Donald Trump sparked fury by lifting Barack Obama ’s ban on hunters importing elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia to the US.
The Mirror today exposes the sick reality of trophy hunting in South Africa and the firms offering package holiday-style hunts. And we reveal many of the trophies are imported here, meaning Brits are involved in the vile practice.
