France ban

No longer welcome in France


Through the Brigitte Bardot Foundation, we yesterday heard that Segolene Royal, Minister of Environment in France issued a letter stating that “I have instructed my services to no longer issue import permits for lion hunting trophies”.

This is excellent news, as France ranks high among the EU Member States for the import of such trophies.

Minister Royal also mentioned that she would consult with other EU Member State Environment Ministers to impose stricter rules on the import of all hunting trophies.

We applaud Minister Royal for this timely decision, and hope that this will precipitate like-minded decisions from many other EU Member States.
