After public outcry since the killing of Cecil the lion, animal-rights activists took to social media to demand that airlines stop the transport of animal-head trophies on flights. The airlines have announced that they will no longer transport lion, rhinoceros, leopard, elephant, or buffalo parts, with American and United saying that they will end the transport “effective immediately.” Delta, who became the target of a Change.org petition, says that they will also stop these shipments. “Effective immediately, Delta will officially ban shipment of all lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo trophies worldwide as freight,” the company said.
