“Import of trophy tusks from one of Africa’s largest elephants could
be illegal, warns Germany, as reward offered for hunter’s identity”
“Germany will consider blocking the import from Zimbabwe of the tusks
ofone of Africa’s biggest elephants killed by one of its nationals, it
said on Friday amid growing global outrage over the hunt.
“The country’s nature conservation agency said it had in the past
refused entry for animals killed in trophy hunts and would not
hesitate to do so in this case if the hunt had infringed German
wildlife regulations.”

  1. I hope they do more than consider it. I hope they do it. If the hunt was legal, then there probably isn’t much else to be done. I don’t see why then can’t find out who he is. If he paid that kind of money and traveled to Zimbabwe, there must be records. He could at least be “palmered” all over the Internet. It gave the dentist a bad few months.
