Hunting for sport has been banned in the country since last January, and activists say these pictures are proof that the practice is still going on despite the new laws.
The Liberia Association of Animal Protection (ALPA) said it received information that the two hunters have the last name Sandino, live on a farm near the Santa Rosa National Park and have been killing jaguars because they attack the cattle. “Well they should perhaps make a better shelter for their cattle…Big cats eat when hungry, if no natural food source left, due to expansion of human homes etc.; then cattle are easy prey!!”
“To prove this felony will be almost impossible due to our country’s weak laws, but the pictures are proof of how people continue killing our animals.
We would really appreciate if all of you share this message and help spread the news,” an ALPA Facebook post said.
