Why this is important to me

Millions will read the article on The Weather Channel (TWC) which starts out, "Bored of hunting quail and deer? Try taking down an elephant or even a grizzly." As we click through the animals' photos, it gets worse with the writer's glib comments on which animal to choose to kill.

Please take down your TWC web pages promoting "17 Animals to Hunt." This is absolutely HORRIFIC that you would promote hunting wildlife that is being decimated by poaching. No one should be encouraged to shoot wildlife for their ego as if Africa is some kind of candy store. 35,000 elephants are poached a year for ivory, extinction looms in 10. As far as elephants, hunters do not know who they shoot. If that elephant is a leader, all the memory of where the trails to food and water go with it. THIS IS AN IMMORAL THING TO RECOMMEND!

PLEASE REMOVE THE PAGES!
