Animal Underworld: Inside America's Black Market for Rare and Exotic Species

 

Page 210: "What exactly constitutes a canned hunt is the subject of ongoing debate. When the U.S. House of Representatives considered the Captive Exotic Animal Protection Act of 1995, the ill-fated legislation sought to ban the trophy hunting of non-native species within enclosures of less than one thousand square acres. Some hunters say that, depending on the terrain and kind of animal being stalked, it's possible to simulate actual hunting conditions even on one hundred acres. Others, including many avid hunters, take a harder line: that because fences make escape impossible, such hunting-whether on ten acres or ten thousand-should be outlawed."
