Blood thirsty trophy hunters selling £1,000 zebra skin chairs, fox cushions and cruel traps, last week at Europe’s largest hunting fair.
The items were all for sale at the Jagd & Hung trade show in Dortmund, Germany, which every year brings thousands of hunters across the world to trade in the slaughter of wild animals.
At the fair were zebra-skin chairs priced at £1,189.
There were also dozens of metal traps designed to ensnare animals with no regard for the pain that will be caused.
Also for sale were mounted bear heads, cheetahs, and birds as well as luxury holidays that double up as hunting expeditions.
Eduardo Gocalves of the campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, said the presence of Britons at the fair “shames our country”.
“what an appalling ‘hobby’, and what a disgusting way to make a living.” he said.
In September, the UK government announced it intends to table new legislation that would ban hunters from bringing trophies from endangered animals back into the country.
