Gruesome. @nbc airs NRA-sponsored show featuring elephants being shot in the face

Animal organizations have joined in the campaign to end the show, including PETA and In Defense of Animals (IDA) who have asked supporters to contact NBC. IDA writes on their Facebook page , “At a time when African elephants are being killed for ivory in record numbers, it is extremely irresponsible for a major U.S. network to showcase the violent slaughter of an elephant as a form of entertainment…As the world focuses on the plight of wild African elephants, who are being killed off at the rate of 1 every 15 minutes, there is simply no excuse for NBC or anyone to air a show like this.”
