THE TRUMP BROTHERS CAUGHT IN CROSSHAIRS OF ‘CONDOMS FOR HUNTERS’ VIDEO
PETA US Quietly Distributes ‘Huntsman’ Condoms as a Way to Nip Future Generations of Animal Slayers in the Bud
London – Recently, outdoors shows, hunting clubs and trophy hunters, including Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump, have received packs of complimentary Huntsman Condoms, camouflage-wrapped prophylactics that boast that they are “a piece of safety equipment that makes no compromises on pleasure or performance”. But a reveals the condoms’ surprising source: PETA US.
PETA US distributed the condoms with one aim: to encourage hunters to stop reproducing. The number of hunters in the United States has already declined sharply, with the vast majority of hunters now middle-age or older men, so PETA US thought it would take a step toward helping the trend continue.
“Hardly any kids hunt these days”, says PETA US President Ingrid Newkirk. “And if the condoms have prevented even one more wretched hunter from being born, we have succeeded in saving the lives of deer, birds and other living beings.”
PETA US – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way” – notes that hunters kill millions of animals every year and have contributed to the extinction of species all over the world, including the Tasmanian tiger and the great auk. Numerous animals are injured but not killed by hunters, escaping only to die slowly and painfully from blood loss and starvation. Cecil the lion, for example, was shot with a steel arrow and left to suffer for 40 hours before he was finally killed.
