NBC Cancels Big-game Hunting Show, Under Wild Skies
An Animal Rights Article from All-Creatures.org

From People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
October 2013

In a most recent episode of "Under Wild Skies," Makris twice shot an elephant in the face during a hunting trip in Botswana.

We are pleased to inform you that NBC Sports has responded to PETA and compassionate individuals like yourself and has canceled the depraved National Rifle Association (NRA)—sponsored big-game hunting show "Under Wild Skies."

As you know, the show depicted NRA lobbyist Tony Makris as he hunted elephants, hippopotamuses, antelope, buffalo, crocodiles, and numerous other exotic animals—including one episode in particular that featured Makris laughing as he shot an African bull elephant in the face.

Thanks to all of you who responded to all action alerts about this, NBC Sports will no longer include Makris' sadistic exploits in its television programming.
