El Al Confirms a Ban on Shipping Hunting Trophies

After hearing from PETA, El Al Israel Airlines confirmed a ban on hunting trophy shipments. This follows a PETA investigation that documented a California trophy hunter paying $30,000 to gun down an elephant outside Kruger National Park in South Africa and paying another $20,000 to preserve his body for shipment back to the U.S. The airline joins the more than 40 others that have banned shipping hunting trophies. Urge UPS to stop shipping them!
