It just became decidedly more difficult for hunters to ship big-game trophies, after at least three major U.S. airlines have announced they're refusing to ship them.
United, Delta and American Airlines have all announced they will no longer ship the trophies.
Delta said the lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo trophies — also known as the "Africa big five" — will be banned worldwide as freight. Both Delta and American say the bans are effective immediately.
