Delta Airlines has moved to ban game trophies on its flights. This is one big step to stop poachers by cutting their method of trophy retrieval. The fight is still far from over as poachers can still import their ill gotten trophies by sea and by a series of minor airlines. It is definitely making it harder and more expensive for people to desire trophies now.
On Monday, Delta Air Lines became the latest carrier to change its rules about transporting hunting trophies. Its announcement came as a group of airlines including Air France, KLM, Iberia, IAG Cargo, Singapore Airlines and Qantas signaled last week they would ban the transport of trophy-hunting kills, according to Paul Ferris, the campaign director at SumOfUs.org, a consumer-based petition agency in Brooklyn, which has pressed for changing cargo policies.
