Hunting for trophies

Should animal trophy hunting be banned?

A group of scientists who specialise in conservation say if importing trophies of endangered animals that have been killed by hunters is stopped, it will undermine efforts to protect animals such as lions and elephants. We speak to conservation biologist Dr Amy Dickman who says trophy hunting isn't a major threat. Will Travers from the Born Free Foundation disputes that analysis.
