British trophy hunters have zebras with a & # 39; risk & # 39; killed in South Africa before posting photos of the slaughtered animals online has been revealed.
The grinning tourists share the pathogenic images on social media after they have started expensive & # 39; hunting & # 39; safaris over the vast African plains.
One & # 39; trophy hunter & # 39 ;, Andy Denson, who is considered a tour operator, posed with a zebra he seemed to have shot and killed in an image on Facebook, the Mirror reported.
Dozens of sick images of hunters with fallen zebras can also be seen on the & # 39; gallery & # 39; page & # 39; s of trophy hunting safari websites.

The British tourist Peter Livesey is one of those who appear on the website of Huntershill Safari. He is posing with a shotgun in one hand and the other resting on his murder.
He went to the guestbook of the website and wrote: & # 39; Never had so much fun with my pants on !!! & # 39 ;.
Nevertheless, the plains zebra is not listed under the & # 39; buck available for hunting & # 39; on the Huntershill Safari website – although account is taken of & # 39; customized packages & # 39 ;.
Wealthy tourists pay up to $ 9500 (£ 7730) for safari trips, which last no less than ten days and several deaths at a & # 39; game farm & # 39; of 55,000 hectares.

Zebras & # 39; s were added to the & # 39; red list & # 39; three years ago. of endangered species from the International Union for Conservation of Nature, after the population had fallen by 24 percent in 14 years.
In 2016, the IUCN estimated that the world population of the & # 39; almost threatened & # 39; plain zebra is between 150,000 and 250,000. It is now supposed to be as small as 34,979, the Mirror reported.
Despite the decreasing numbers, it is not illegal to hunt Zebra & # 39; s plains on the South African plains.
However, government officials are now trying to ban the import of endangered body parts to the UK. This movement would also stop the import of exotic fur and carpets.

Minister of International Wildlife Zac Goldsmith said: & I look at the pictures & it confuses me. & # 39;
In August, Boris Johnson hit & # 39; s partner Carrie Symonds & # 39; cruel and cowardly & # 39; British tourists who pay thousands to go on African trophy hunts and shoot animals including elephants, zebras and giraffes.
She went to Twitter to defeat the hunters – who could choose to kill an animal from a list of 65 species, including £ 1,666 extra to shoot a giraffe and £ 6,422 for a hippopotamus.
She said: & # 39; Can you imagine the hunters below fighting these majestic beasts without having to hide behind a rock and without having to use a huge gun?

& # 39; Of course not. That is why it is not only cruel, incredible but also cowardly. & # 39;
Mrs. Symonds previously posted pictures of the hunters with their killings and also tweeted: & # 39; Animals have no voice. They depend on us to do the right thing. I'm pretty sure this isn't it. & # 39;
Eduardo Goncalves of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting added that it & # 39; incredible & # 39; is, there are hardly any legal restrictions for photographing zebras for fun.
He said: & # 39; So much of Africa & # 39; s largest wildlife are already suffering thanks to the despicable hunting trophy industry. Now zebras are included in the list.
& # 39; In April last year, zebras were officially listed as vulnerable. The zebra species of the Grévy is listed as endangered. What is needed to prevent these killers from completely eradicating our nature? & # 39;
