Remember that advisory board that Interior Secretary Zinke created about big-game hunting, then packed with rich "trophy" hunters, NRA members, Trump associates, etc.?

The Fish & Wildlife Service recently posted 16,000+ pages about it:…

While it's great that all this material is now available, a document dump like this means that the important bits are buried.

Hopefully animal rights activists and organizations will dig into this mountain.
Be sure to read the AP's deep dig into the people Zinke appointed to this board:…

It's insane. "One appointee co-owns a private New York hunting preserve with Trump’s adult sons."

So, to reiterate, the 16,000+ pages of internal documents released via FOIA are here:…

Also: The Fish & Wildlife Service has recently released 8,800+ pages of documents on elephant "trophy" hunting:…

3 of these files were posted today.

The first 72 pages of the 2nd file on this page are 2017-2018 permit applications from Americans who want to bring back body parts of elephants they murder in Africa.…

The "International Wildlife Conservation Council":…
