French supermarket managers hunted out of job over safari pictures

Euronews Latest news

Two managers of a French supermarket have resigned after photos resurfaced showing them posing with wild animals they killed on safari hunts.

The couple, who managed a Super U in Arbresle near Lyon, was criticised by animal rights activists after the pictures appeared last Thursday.

The images showed them with slaughtered wild animals: lions, hippopotamus, alligators, leopards, ostriches and zebras all feature on their kill list.

These “unearthed” photos come, in part, from a safari organised by a South African company in 2014. The couple appears, in the middle of other participants, on many photographs.

Other images come from an interview given in 2016 by the wife to a website dedicated to the world of hunting. The article in question is currently unavailable.
