USA Canned Hunting ranges
Captive hunts are the very opposite of “fair chase.” Shooters at captive hunts pay to kill animals—even endangered species—trapped behind fences. State laws and regulations on this practice vary widely.Animals from breeders, dealers, and even zoos or circuses may end up at captive hunts. Often the animals are hand raised and bottle fed, so they aren’t afraid of people—although they can’t escape their “pay per kill” fate.Even when the operations have large enclosures, they lure animals with food to a place where a shooter waits. They are so unsporting that hunting groups like Boone & Crockett, Pope & Young, and the Izaak Walton League oppose them.Captive hunts also threaten cattle and wildlife with disease, while the owners earn big fees.There are more than a thousand captive hunts in this country.

More than 1000 canned hunting farms in the USA

The USA has appr. more than 1,000 (!) canned hunting farms, where people can hunt for (exotic) animals for fun. Even with a 100% guarantee.Officially tigers are not allowed to be used as hunting targets on these farms, but loopholes in the laws have been used to create conditions that even endangered animals can be shot.We can only hope that the Biden administration will end this.
