Shipping a lion head or any other big game body part soon? You might have more trouble than you think

More carriers chimed in Tuesday after several major airlines began banning shipment of big game trophies amid outrage over the killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe.

Air Canada announced that it would refuse to transport such big game animals as lions, leopards, elephants, rhinoceros or water buffalo, while the United Parcel Service (UPS) declined to follow suit.

Their decisions come just one day after US airlines Delta and American banned the shipment of big game trophies on flights.
