HEY PETA, KICK ROCKS! I say this with the upmost respect, of course. Animal right activists are bonkers and only seem to be progressing.

Remember that one time they literally attacked two men for fishing because the fish have feelings? It would be one thing if they were advocating against kicking puppies and just downright cruelty. However, they take it to an extreme. Cows, pigs, deer, and chickens are on this earth for us to eat. Sorry if that upsets you, Susan!

Now the activists are about to have a field day, because President Trump has lifted a ban on importing elephant trophies from big game hunts.

Evening Standard reports:

The new White House regulation overturns an Obama administration ban on elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia.

It caused outrage among animal activists with The Humane Society of the United States blasting the decision as “jarring.”

The US Fish and Wildlife Service confirmed the move, saying it could help the elephants by “putting much-needed revenue back into conservation.”

Mr Trump agreed the move despite the fact the animals have been listed under the Endangered Species Act since 1978.

Here’s what many people don’t understand: big game hunting actually helps these countries! Does it seem sad than an animal is killed? Sure. However, the money that it brings in greatly helps the people living in the area. So think about that…..would you rather see the villages full of people survive, or big game animals?

Don’t get me wrong, I love elephants and I have a heart for animals….but a person’s life will always be more valuable.
