Yeah well, if the lion had a gun of its own, the problem may never have happened in the first place.

So really Yorgie, the blame is all on fakenews people like YOU. Which is why the rest of Us should have guns too.

Trudie's little socks are everywhere...and you stink.

'NOT MUFASA': British hunter defends Canadian couple's killing of lion

A British hunter has come to the defence of the Canadian couple who received widespread backlash online for kissing over the body of a dead lion they killed while on safari.
Carl Knight, 45, owns Take Aim Safaris and has accused “armchair conservationists” and the media of misrepresenting and sensationalizing the safari hunting profession, Daily Express reports.
In defence of Canadian couple Darren and Carolyn Carter, Knight made reference to Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ saying: “This is not Mufasa or Cecil, this is an animal that was farmed like a cow, a sheep or a crocodile that is farmed for meat and skin.”
“Why do we have to answer to your armchair conservationist readers that know nothing about Africa,” said Knight. “This lion was bred for hunting and for lion bore export to the Far East.”

Knight justified the profession and sport of big trophy hunting for economic reasons, saying the “money these clients paid for this lion is much-needed in poverty-stricken Southern Africa.”
Legelela Safaris, the company that released the image of the Carters’ kiss over the dead lion, included a price list on their website.
Shooting a giraffe will cost hunters $3,000, while zebras cost $2,500. What about the price of shooting a lion? You have to ask them how much that costs.
However, the economic benefit Knight claims may be exaggerated.
According to data from the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, hunting companies contribute a mere 3% of revenue to hunting communities, Express.co.uk reports.

A 2017 study from Born Free, an animal rights activist group, found the profession generated 1.8% of tourism revenue and a mere 0.03% of GDP.
Meanwhile, the Carters have gone into hiding online to escape the backlash and criticism for the image that started this all.
They have shut down their Facebook and Instagram pages.

Darren and Carolyn Carter pose for a kiss over the dead lion they killed on safari. Darren Carter's daughter, Sydney Carter, released a YouTube video condemning her fathers actions while vowing never to call him 'dad' again. Facebook
Things keep getting worse for the Carters.
Darren and Carolyn Carter made international headlines after images surfaced of them posing for a kiss over the body of a dead lion they shot and killed while trophy hunting on safari in Africa.
In a heartbreaking YouTube video, Sydney Carter, 19, the daughter of Darren, addresses her father directly, condemning his actions and vowing never to call him dad again.
“So, Darren if you’re ever watching this, just know that I don’t consider you my dad anymore, you’re a horrible person,” Sydney said.
Sydney says she hasn’t seen her father in 10 years and accuses him of abandoning their family, not paying child support, and being an abusive father.
“I am disgusted to call him my dad,” she said.
“After everything he’s done, he didn’t pay child support, he didn’t even give my mom a little bit of money, but he has enough to pay for a $15,000 trip to Africa with his wife that he cheated on my mom with to go to Africa and trophy hunt.
“That just makes me sick. I refuse to call him my dad anymore. Like who does that, I’ll never understand people like that, that take pride in shooting a beautiful animal like a lion.”
Sydney also spoke about what her father was like in the past and what she remembers about him.
“I don’t recognize his voice, I don’t recognize his face, nothing,” Sydney said. “I remember the bad times, let me just tell you that, he was quite an abusive dad, he treated all of us horribly, I never recognized that until recently.”

In tears, Sydney ended the video saying: “I’ll never forgive you.”
The days following the release of the photo have not been kind for the Carters.
The owners of Solitude Taxidermy in Sprucegrove Alta., received widespread backlash which led them to take down their Instagram, Facebook, and company website.

MUTILATED: Drone image shows slaughtered elephant carcass

This aerial photograph shows elephants roaming in the plains of the Chobe district in the northern part of Botswana, on September 20, 2018.Getty Images
Butchers for profit.
Gruesome images have surfaced of an abandoned elephant carcass that had been cut to pieces for its ivory.
Documentary filmmaker, Justin Sullivan, 28, from Cape Town, South Africa, captured the drone images in Botswana after overhearing rangers speak about a nearby poached elephant, the Daily Mail reports.
The image, called ‘Disconnection’, shows the mutilated elephant lying in the middle of an open field, its trunk severed and head split in two.
“They said an elephant had just been poached and I asked to be taken to the site,” Sullivan said. “On arrival, I used a drone to capture the image.”
It’s common for poachers to use chain saws to cut the elephant’s trunk off to make harvesting the ivory faster.
According to the Daily Mail, there has been a proliferation of poaching in Botswana as the number of abandoned animal carcasses found from 2014 to 2018 has increased by 593%.
Botswana has the largest elephant population in Africa, but last month Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi lifted a five-year ban on elephant hunting, a controversial decision.
Mokgweetsi cited conflicts between the elephant population and humans as the reason for the move.
Speaking about the reaction the image has provoked, Sullivan said, “(it’s) drawn a lot of attention. People have obviously reacted with mixed feelings of anger and sadness, especially with the recent lift on the hunting ban in Botswana, but this photo has driven some constructive dialogue around how we can promote more sustainable elephant conversation and solve our current ecological crisis.”

‘Disconnection’ has made international headlines and has been included in the prestigious Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest.
In explaining the images name, Sullivan said: “The high angle looking top-down shows isolation and highlights not only the physical disconnection of the animal but our disconnection from the situation.”

'TURNED TO MUSH': Bones in trophy hunter's hands mangled in alligator attack

Trophy hunter Justin Perchalski had his bones "turned to mush" by an alligator he was hunting.Facebook
A trophy hunter tangled with an alligator and lost.
Justin Perchalski was hunting an 11-foot long alligator in a Florida swamp when the beast managed to grab hold of his right hand and started gnawing on it, Fox 26 reports.
His bones were “turned to mush” as the alligator tried to drag Perchalski out of the boat and into the swamp.
The attack occurred on a night hunt just two days after the official start of the hunting season.
Speaking with Fox 26, Perchalski’s brother, Ryan, described the attack, stating “Justin reached over the side of the boat to pull on the line, to bring the gator up, when the gator came out of the water, grabbing his right hand,” he said.
“The alligator made it about a turn-and-a-half with his hand in his mouth before he let go, which is kind of crazy, because typically they don’t let go.”
Fighting against the strength of the alligator, Perchalski was saved by three friends who managed to hold onto him.
After the alligator let go, Justin was transported to a hospital where he had major surgery on his hand and arm.
He lost the radial bone in his forearm.

His brother says it is unlikely Justin will return to hunting as the likelihood of regaining full use of his arm is slim.
Unfortunately, an incident like this is only a matter of time, according to Ryan.
“You do it long enough, something like this is bound to happen,” he said.

TWISTED TROPHIES: Safari companies offer baboon killing for as little as $20

A Brit hunter poses with the baboon he killed in South Africa. FACEBOOK
Twisted tourists are slaughtering monkeys and baboons “for fun” on low-rent African safaris.
According to The U.K. Sun, most of the participants are from the U.S. and Great Britain.
For as little $20, tourists can murder a monkey and take it home.
Over a 30-year span, the newspaper said, British trophy hunters have legally killed more than 500 baboons and vervet monkeys.
Bloody good fun for kids, too! FACEBOOK
“It’s often free, or trophy fees can be as little as $20 (£16.45), so in essence, people can just shoot primates,” Iris Ho, senior specialist for wildlife programs at Humane Society International, told the Sun.
“It is abhorrent, and it’s really shocking to a lot of animal advocates.”
One hunter posted on one of the hunting company’s website: “Both our visits have exceeded our expectations in every aspect.”
Critics are slamming the hunters as “disgusting” and said they should be “ashamed”.

Africa Hunt Lodge boasts that the monkeys “travel in large groups, so we will be able to find the older males from the group.
“Many of these vervet monkeys raid our orange crops … so culling out these monkeys is of great importance to us.”
Some of the safari outfits allegedly encourage customers to kill the primates with bows and arrows because it ups the odds of inflicting agonizing injuries.
The chacma baboon tops the list of favourite primate trophies in the U.S.

A hot hunter claims she only kills rare wild animals for meat or conservation.
Sexy Kate Small, 29, of Boise, Idaho, has triggered a firestorm from outraged animal lovers who have even threatened to kill her daughter.
The nurse claims she took up hunting after her stepfather introduced her to it.
And she boasted to her 27,000 Instagram followers that she intends to go on killing animals.
Kate Small, 29, a devoted hunter says she has had death threats. KATE SMALL/INSTAGRAM
Her social media page features a slew of photos of dead bears, wolves and antelopes.
“I have actually received thousands of death threats,” she said. “People saying things I’d never wish on my worst enemy. I’ve had hundreds of people also threaten to rape and murder my one-year-old daughter.”
But once her daughter is old enough, she, too, will be introduced to hunting, Small said.
“I like being able to know exactly where my food came from and not only that but working extremely hard to get it,” she said. “I like being able to provide organic, nutritious meals for my family.”
She added: “It’s a true test of your inner strength and character. Being able to connect with Mother Nature, watching and learning the habits of God’s creatures deep in the backcountry, the views as the sun rises and hits a mountain peak, it’s just unexplainable.”

Hubby and I hunt for food too but we don't kill ones that are endangered or rare. And the best for eating are the younger ones, which leaves the older, bigger ones for breeding stock.
And "God" probably doesn't exist. Nature supplies the sunrises, sunsets, etc.
Kate Small is small-minded.

Are these tryouts for the 'bare hands Polar Bear wrestling' thingy?? (3rd ride on the left at the 'Last Ride Water Park and Crematorium) The posing part is really the 'how low are my morals moment' for the world to see.

Would going to a farm an having the farmer pop one for you and you tie it to the hood as you leave not almost be the same. Most of 'the hunters' too the kill to a butcher so who knows what in the hell they got back. Most of the time they need a lot of different meat to make any decent sausages so more money. Order from them directly, that way you know you are getting the right product.
Anybody want to go in on some Quail from the Niger Petting Zoo?

You should stop assuming you know what's what.
We have a theory that wild meat is generally healthier than the chemical-laden crap available in stores which generally comes from farms. We do get some stuff from farms but we've vetted it and it is local with the exception of the beef we get from my cousin. Hubby and I do our own processing.

Or maybe she's just a liar.

Rhinos in Botswana being poached at alarming rate

The intensified slaughter of Botswana rhinos for trinkets and quack medicine could make the beasts extinct by 2021.
So far since April, nine of the animals have been poached, the government announced.
“We have been losing about a rhino a month to poaching,” Mmadi Reuben, with Botswana’s wildlife department, said, according to AFP.
“If the poaching continues at this rate, there will be no rhinos in Botswana in a year or two, especially the black rhino.”
Will rhinos be relegated to history? They will as long as demand in Asia remains high. GETTY IMAGES
Thousands of the animals once roamed Africa and Asia, but poaching and sprawl have contributed to their demise.
Today, few are found outside national parks and reserves. And even there the rhinos’ safety is threatened.
Rhino Conservation Botswana said there are around 400 rhinos in the southern African country. But the onslaught against them continues.
Two rhinos were poached within five days in late September.
According to AFP, southern white rhinos have been brought back from the bring of extinction but their black cousins are considered critically endangered with just 4,200 in the wild.
In Botswana, there are less than 20 black rhinos.
The problem of poaching both rhinos and elephants has become so severe in Botswana that the country enacted a zero-tolerance approach.
That policy towards poachers? Shoot-to-kill. Two recently paid the ultimate price.
“The anti-poaching forces have now placed the protection of rhinos and location of these poaching gangs as their highest priority,” said the statement.
But officials say the forces are stretched thin as demand among nouveau rich Asians has skyrocketed in a bizarre quest for status.
Rhino horn sells for an eye-popping $60,300 per kilo on the black market.
And the problem is continent-wide, with South Africa losing more than 7,100 rhinos in the past decade — 769 in 2018 alone.

I think if China really wanted to help Africa, it would send a few thousand troops there to pop the poachers. I mean besides what it's doing otherwise, like building bridges and buildings, etc.

Oh, the Chinese don't want to stop the poachers. Ground-up bits of big game animals make heap big, magical ju-jube in advanced Chinese medicine and they won't stop until there is nothing bigger than a squirrel left on Earth.

There's an old joke about spreading a rumour in China that Canadian mosquitos are an aphrodisiac.
