Back in September, PM Boris Johnson vowed to ban imports of hunting trophies from endangered animals. 

The Prime Minister pledged to stop callous hunters bringing the heads, skins and other parts of animals shot for pleasure into Britain, declaring: ‘We must end this barbaric practice’.

It comes five months after an exposé in the Mail on Sunday revealed the cruelty and horror of South Africa’s lion farms.

An investigation by former Tory peer Lord Ashcroft exposed how up to 12,000 lions bred in captivity are destined to either be shot by hunters or killed in slaughterhouses.

Trophy hunters’ kills are exempt from international controls supposed to stop the parts of endangered animals from being imported or exported.
