Last week, liberals everywhere were outraged after it was revealed that Minnesota dentist Dr. Walter Palmer had killed the beloved Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe during a hunting expedition.
The Obama administration quickly responded by announcing that they had launched an investigation into Palmer. Now, Zimbabwe has started extradition proceedings for Palmer in the hopes of bringing him back to the country to face charges.
The Cecil the lion story has caused millions of liberals to step up their game in shaming hunters, and businesses are already submitting to their agenda. According to The Blaze, Delta Airlines has announced that they will no longer accept hunting trophies on their aircrafts. Specifically, the airline will not be accepting lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo trophies.
Back in May, Delta said they would still allow such shipments as long as they are legal. Clearly, they were not strong enough to withstand the liberal backlash, so they submitted to their anti-hunting agenda.
Hunting enthusiasts will be mourning this decision, since Delta has the most flights to Africa of any U.S. airline. After making their announcement on Monday, Delta refused to answer questions from the press about their decision or about how many hunting trophies they had shipped over the years.
“Delta’s strict acceptance policy called for absolute compliance with all government regulations regarding protected species,” Delta said in a brief statement.
Henry Harteveldt, a travel industry consultant, pointed out that Delta would lose very little money from this decision, so it was likely a PR move for them.
“I don’t think there was much of this shipment taking place, so there is minimal revenue loss and big PR gain for them,” he said.
