An ex-cop runs a trophy- club where the rich pay thousands to animals.

Peter Jones, who worked for the Metropolitan Police as a firearms expert, now rubs shoulders with who join his “exclusive” Capreolus Club.

The members-only group arranges trips for gun-toting trophy hunters. It offers them the chance to slaughter all six species of deer in the UK, as well as boar and foxes.

The former detective, 47 – who won an award for bravery – also organises trips abroad, including one to butcher ­“dangerous game” in Africa.

Hunting a buffalo, one of the much-­coveted “big five” in circles, is on offer for “as little as £6,750” on trips to South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

European brown bears can be hunted in Croatia for £8,250. And despite claims of being eco-friendly, there are videos of hunters taking private jets on trips.

Eduardo Goncalves, of the Campaign to Ban , said of Jones: “Thanks to him, countless innocent animals have been senselessly slaughtered in Britain.

“He’s sold sick hunting holidays where people can kill animals right across Europe and Africa too.

“People will be utterly disgusted by his repulsive business and how he chooses to make money.”

In one video called “Elk hunting in Norway” a terrified moose falls 200ft off a cliff while fleeing their guns. Jones asks: “Did you get it?” A man replies, “No, she broke her neck”, which sparks laughter.

In another a man shoots a red stag in the UK and boasts of planning to take the heart as a trophy to make a “beautiful” tartare.

The company’s website says Jones “dedicated himself to the betterment of deer and large game through their careful selection”.

The company also sells a £9,500 package for the latest hunting fad in which punters shoot African rhinos with vitamin-laced darts. After it is shot, a team manhandles the animal so the hunter can pose for pictures. Customers get a replica trophy of its head.

Jones, pictured above, from London, brags: “Members are able to experience the thrill of hunting and shooting a rhino.

“The projectile however is a dart that ­administers vitamins.” But Eduardo said: “The hunting industry is constantly coming up with excuses… to justify the unjustifiable. What they’re really up to is exploiting animals for their own entertainment.”

Jones was approached for comment.
