LICENSE TO MURDER: Brit, 74, among ‘elite’ wildlife killers after shooting dead hundreds of animals worldwide for fun

International law allows wildlife serial killers to get away with murder. If you add the minimum number of kills needed for all his awards, it is over 500, including the Africa's Big 5 (lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalo).

BRITTANY VONOW: A 74-year-old Brit has been exposed as an “elite” wildlife killer who has shot dead hundreds of animals worldwide for fun. Pensioner Malcolm King has been named as one of the world’s best big game hunters by international safari magazines – even travelling to far flung rainforests to pursue his hobby. As part of his hunting career – that has spanned almost two decades from 2000 – Mr King has achieved “goals” that required shooting some of Africa’s “big five” that include lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalo.

According to animal campaigners, the combined number of animals required for the awards won by King is 528. Among his awards are prizes for shooting African ‘Big Game’, wild cats, and bears. In one safari blog from Cameroon, organisers said Mr King had been “travelling for quite some time” and “needed a number of specific animals from the rainforests. They noted: “His collection already included 340 species of animals from around the world.”

Describing the English retiree, the website stated: “Malcolm King has been actively engaged in trophy hunting worldwide since 2000, 18 years altogether… Eduardo Goncalves, founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, slammed King for the “obscene” hobby. He said: “King is among the world’s ‘elite’ big game hunters – very few have amassed so many of the industry’s obscene awards. “If you add the minimum number of kills needed for all his awards, it comes to well over 500. “International law allows wildlife serial killers to get away with murder”.’ SOURCE…
