Texas club’s latest auction: A hunt for African elephants

DALLAS (AP) — A Texas hunting club again will auction off Saturday a chance to kill a large animal whose numbers are dwindling, a year after it faced international criticism over doing the same with a permit to shoot an endangered black rhino. The World Wildlife Fund, the world's leading conservation group, regards it as "vulnerable," a step below "endangered" and defined as "facing a high risk of extinction in the wild." Animal welfare activists plan to picket the convention hotel Saturday, but the club's Executive Director Ben Carter says elephants "in fact, are overpopulated in certain areas of Africa."
