CONNECTICUT SENATE BILL 20: AN ACT PROHIBITING THE IMPORT, SALES & POSSESSION OF AFRICAN ELEPHANTS, LIONS, LEOPARDS, BLACK RHINOCEROS, WHITE RHINOCEROS & GIRAFFES Introduced by Connecticut Sen. Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) Senate Bill 20 would ban the import, sale and possession of what Sen. Duff refers to as “the Big Six” African species – African elephants, lions, leopards, black rhinoceros, white rhinoceros and giraffes. This legislation does not consider the positive recovery effects legal hunting has had, from a conservation and financial standpoint, for these species.
