AMELIA WYNNE: A Cambridge-educated lawyer has been revealed as a top trophy hunter accused of killing dozens of African animals. Abigail Day has won more than 20 awards from Safari Club International – a US hunting organisation – whose London division she founded in 2006… Ms Day – who graduated with a law degree in 1987 – has also won an ‘African Big 5 award’ for shooting a lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and cape buffalo. She is one of only two living British hunters to have received the ‘award’…

In 2008, Ms Day was the recipient of SCI’s ‘Diana’ award for being the world’s top female trophy hunter and has hunted in 36 countries… When The Telegraph visited her home in west London they said that found oryx, warthog and a stuffed big cat thought to be a leopard mounted on her walls…

In a book published tomorrow by Eduardo Goncalves – the founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting – further details of Ms Day’s involvement in hunting will be revealed. Mr Goncalves’s book Trophy Leaks: Top Hunters & Industry Secrets Revealed will also expose another trophy hunter who boasted about the ‘thrill’ of killing animals all over the world on his social media.

Thames Water customer service manager Asif Wattoo, from Berkshire, has hunted zebras and also posed with giraffe carcasses on trips to France, Pakistan and South Africa… Mr Goncalves said: ‘There is no other Briton so deeply enmeshed in the global industry. To see her list of awards was extraordinary’… The other hunter exposed in the book Mr Wattoo has one Facebook album containing 50 hunting photographs…

Writing on Facebook about one of his stalks with Umlilo Safaris, Wattoo said: ‘If you’ve hunted in Africa you know exactly how thrilling it is, but if you have not, I suggest you go soon (try Umlilo Safaris)?. ‘Only then you will know exactly what and how I am feeling right now?. Lol’… Ms Day declined to comment on the contents of the book… Canned hunting is the killing of captive-bred wild animals in small enclosures. It is most commonly associated with the trophy-hunting of lions. SOURCE…
