Africa begs Europe: let us hunt wildlife

There are wildlife winners in Africa and wildlife losers. The wildlife winners are the countries that promote hunting. The wildlife losers, where animals are being slaughtered to extinction, are the countries where hunting is banned. Charlie Jacoby talks to some of the big noises behind big game hunting in Africa, as they appeal to MEPs in the European Parliament to leave them alone.
