The legality of which animals can be hunted and brought back to the U.S. falls under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Currently, the Service permits the importation of the "big five" hunting trophies: lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo.
Telecky points out that despite UPS' claims to avoid "making judgments," they have done so in the past.
"To their credit, UPS prohibits shipment of many things that are otherwise legal to ship, such as ivory," Telecky told The Dodo.
Below is the list of companies that still allow trophy hunting transportation. FedEx, a UPS competitor, is also on the list. Jim McCluskey, a company spokesman, told The Dodo that FedEx's shipping policy allows "taxidermy finished specimens if they are legally obtained and meet our shipping guidelines"
He added, "Our priority is to ensure we abide by laws and regulations for all shipments."
Note: This list is changing by the hour. The names on the list represent the airlines which allow trophy hunting transportation at the time of publication.
