Idaho wildlife official resigns after outrage over killing baboon family

BOISE, Idaho — A top Idaho wildlife official has resigned amid outrage over a photo of him posing with a baboon family he killed during a hunting trip Africa, ending days of turmoil for a state where big game hunting is popular but critics said the photo was seen as unsportsmanlike by hunting enthusiasts.
Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter said in a statement that he asked for and accepted Blake Fischer’s resignation on Monday, three days after the Idaho Statesman newspaper published the first report about a photo of Fischer smiling with four dead baboons propped in front of him.
The photo and others of Fischer and his wife shooting at least 14 animals in Namibia were accompanied by descriptions in an email that Fischer sent to more than 100 recipients. Fischer has said he did nothing illegal, unethical or immoral.
He didn’t apologize for killing the baboons but said in his resignation to Otter that he “recently made some poor judgments that resulted in sharing photos of a hunt in which I did not display an appropriate level of sportsmanship and respect for the animals I harvested.”
The baboon family photo showed blood visible on the abdomen of the smallest baboon, its head lolling back to rest on the chest of one of the dead adult baboons. Fischer killed them using a bow and arrows, visible in the bottom of the picture.
It drew condemnation from longtime Idaho hunters, including Otter, who is 76 and said Tuesday that he has “hunted and fished all my life.”
“I would never have done that, and I would never encourage anybody to do that,” Otter told The Associated Press in an interview.
The photo of Fischer with the dead baboons hurts Idaho’s reputation as a hunting and fishing paradise, Otter said.
“I think it’s tainted,” he said. “Fortunately, he has resigned. We’d like to get this behind us because this is not us.”
Fischer was one of seven members on the Idaho Fish and Game Commission. Otter appoints commissioners and under Idaho law can also remove them. Otter initially appointed Fischer in 2014 and reappointed him in June to a second four-year-term.
“I have high expectations and standards for every appointee in state government,” Otter said. “Every member of my administration is expected to exercise good judgment. Commissioner Fischer did not.”
Fischer and his wife during their Africa trip also killed a giraffe, a leopard, an impala, a sable antelope, a waterbuck, a kudu, a warthog, a gemsbok (oryx) and an eland.
Fischer has a business in southwestern Idaho that sells irrigation products used by ranchers and farmers. He did not return a telephone message seeking comment that was left at his business on Tuesday.
Most of the photos with the animals were posed, like typical big game hunting photos from Idaho and other western U.S. states showing hunters with dead deer, elk and mountain lions.
After the baboon photo was made public, at least two former Idaho Fish and Game Commission members to call for Fischer’s resignation.
“Sportsmanlike behaviour is the centre pin to maintaining hunting as a socially acceptable activity,” former member Fred Trevey said in an email.
The commission Fischer served on makes policy decisions about Idaho’s wildlife, and it often manages game populations through hunting and fishing regulations.
Those regulations are intended promote ethical wildlife hunting. Some of Idaho’s policies, such as on wolf and grizzly bear hunting, have been challenged in federal courts.
Otter said he has received several applications to fill the open commission seat but had no timeline for naming a new commissioner.

Freshly killed wild animals make professional hunter Larysa Switlyk smile. INSTAGRAM
A sexy “huntress” found herself a target of rage after she posted photos of a wild goat she had just shot in Scotland.
Now, TV hunting hostess Larysa Switlyk is leaving social media after receiving a litany of death threats among the 12,000 people who responded.
The host of the syndicated hunting program Larysa Unleashed did not take the drubbing well.
In a message posted on Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday night, Switlyk said she was off to reconnect with nature.

Posting a photo of herself next to a small seaplane, she wrote: “My ride has arrived — I’m headed out on a bush plane for my next hunting adventure and will be out of service for 2 weeks.
“Nothing better than disconnecting from this social media-driven world and connecting back with nature.”
She added: “Hopefully that will give enough time for all the ignorant people out there sending me death threats to get educated on hunting and conservation. FYI, I was in Scotland over a month ago…”
Professional hunter Larysa Switlyk has triggered outrage with her kills. INSTAGRAM
The one-time accountant who turned to hunting after getting a taste of blood sports triggered the furor with a picture of herself beside the dead goat.
She boasted: “Beautiful wild goat here on the Island of Islay in Scotland. Such a fun hunt!! They live on the edge of the cliffs of the island and know how to hide well.
“Made a perfect 200 yard shot and dropped him with the @gunwerks and @nightforce-optics ! (Good thing too because he could have ran off the cliff into the water).”
A spokeswoman for animal rights group OneKind was furious.
“It’s utterly shocking to see these images of Larysa Switlyk and other hunters posing for photos with the wild animals they killed on a recent trip to Scotland,” Sarah Moyes told the Daily Mail.
“Yet again, instead of celebrating Scotland’s magnificent wildlife, we are seeing these beautiful animals exploited in the name of sport.”
One BBC commentator described Switlyk as a “twisted sicko”.

No packing the carcass out on her back pr butchering and tanning the hide and then eating and finally making a few tools from the bones. That is what hunting is about. If they now have brothels with dolls perhaps that is the trend 'sport hunting' should take or give them a knife only, and a pat on the back along with a 'good luck bagging that tiger'.


The 'Alone' series should be expanded to it being a new National Sport.

Texas game hunter reportedly paid $110K to kill rare Himalayan goat

A Texas-based banking executive reportedly paid $110,000 to the Pakistani government for the opportunity to kill a rare Himalayan mountain goat.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Bryan Kinsel Harlan travelled to Pakistan and paid the steep amount of cold, hard cash in order to hunt an Astor markhor, a rare wild goat. The animal was shot dead during a tourist expedition to Gilgit-Baltistan, a northern Himalayan region in Pakistan.
“It is an honour and privilege to be back in Pakistan,” Harlan said, according to Pakistani TV station Samaa. “This is the third time I am in Pakistan. I have hunted almost all animals here. I saved the markhors for the last.”
The Astor markhor is a breed of goat that has large, flat and spirally horns. They can be found in northern Pakistan.
Under normal circumstances, hunting wild Astor markhors is banned. The animal is protected by local and international conservation laws like the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.

However, the Pakistani government allows trophy hunting for a large fee. The government granted one permit to Harlan to kill the rare goat.
Pakistani authorities claim that 80% of $110,000 fee goes back to the community while the remaining will go to wildlife agencies, as reported by the Washington Post.
A video posted on YouTube reportedly showed the goat leaping into the air after being shot, as well as Harlan kneeling behind his trophy kill.
The Washington Post reported Harlan and two other Americans paid to trophy hunt three markhor goats in northern Pakistan. Pakistani officials and conservation groups told the news outlet the hunts saved the animal from extinction.
Harlan was roasted online for his trophy hunt.
“Bryan Kinsel Harlan is a disgusting human being,” tweeted one angered individual.
“This Bryan Kinsel Harlan dude should be ashamed of himself. Hunting exotic animals is disgusting, paying to shoot them up close is even worse,” tweeted another.
It’s believed that about 2,500 markhor goats remain in the wild, the Post reported.

Odd there is no outrage real or fake directed to the Paki government which sold the permit to hunt.

What's the point? How far did outrage about Pakistan sheltering the Taliban and Bin Laden get anyone?

Sick plan to let trophy hunters slaughter 2,000 hippos

Twisted trophy hunters celebrate the killing of an African hippo. Environmentalists say the massacre is on.AFRICAN SKY HUNTING
Animal rights activists are outraged by a plan by the Zambian government to let trophy hunters kill 2,000 hippos over a five-year span.
They’re calling it a “cull.” The Zambian government wanted to kick the slaughter off in 2016 with a 400-hippo quota.
The cash-poor government backed off after outcries from animal lovers.
Now, the charity Born Free is claiming the killing has started again under the auspices of the bloodshed being used as a “wildlife management tool.”
But Zambia has given wealthy trophy hunters from the U.S. and Europe the old wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Story continues below
One South African trophy hunting company is now offering a six-night hippo killing safari in Zambia.
Zambia has given the greenlight for trophy hunters to slaughter hippos. EXPOSING TROPHY HUNTERS/ FACEBOOK
For about $18,000 hunters are allowed to kill five of the beloved animals.
Another company offers the bargain basement price of $11,000 per dead hippo.
And environmentalists say Zambia has shown no evidence of hippo overpopulation.
“[They have] failed to provide credible, scientific evidence to show that such an indiscriminate hippo cull of healthy animals would prevent a future outbreak of anthrax,” Born Free said in a statement.
“Scientific evidence suggests that culling hippos stimulates breeding and ends up increasing the population, potentially establishing a vicious cycle of death and destruction.”
The World Wildlife Fund calls the status of the hippo as “vulnerable.”
According to the Daily Mail, one hunting website called hunting hippos “terrifically exciting”.

If money is the issue why not have all these animals rights groups raise funds for the Zambian government.

Woman who killed giraffe in viral photo says she's 'proud to hunt'

A hunter who was at the centre of online hate after a picture of her posing with a dead giraffe went viral last year doesn’t regret killing the animal.
“I am proud to hunt,” said Tess Talley. “And I am proud of that giraffe.”
In an interview that aired on CBS This Morning, Talley said she would “absolutely” still hunt because it’s something she loves to do.
“It’s a hobby, it’s something that I love to do,” she said.
The woman became the subject of online hate last year after she boasted about killing the giraffe in June 2017.
“Prayers for my once in a lifetime dream hunt came true today!” Talley captioned the now deleted photo. “Spotted this rare black giraffe bull and stalked him for quite a while. I knew it was the one. He was over 18 years old, 4,000 lbs. and was blessed to be able to get 2,000 lbs. of meat from him.”
Talley said the giraffe’s death was part of a conservation hunt intended to control the amount of wildlife in the area.
The picture went viral after AfricLand Post posted her hunting photos on Twitter.
The tweet – which garnered more than 30,000 likes and retweeted 48,500 times – spawned a wave of online hatred towards Talley.
Talley told CBS News interviewer Adam Yamaguchi that she made decorative pillows and a gun case out of the animal’s body, items she described as “delicious.”
CBS This Morning co-host Tony Dokoupil questioned whether the hunt was about conservation because it seemed like the hunter enjoyed killing the giraffe a little too much.
“You do what you love to do. It’s joy,” Talley said. “If you don’t love what you do, you’re not gonna continue to do it.”
When asked why she continued to hunt if there’s remorse, Talley said pulling the trigger is “the hardest part” but “you gain so much respect, and so much appreciation for the animal because you know what that animal is going through.”
“They are put here for us. We harvest them, we eat them,” she said.
Talley was then asked whether she’d continue to hunt if it wasn’t part of conservation efforts.
“Just knock down animals just to be knocking them down, and it not helping anything? No,” she replied.
Talley said she was surprised by the online hate, noting people showed up to her job and called her employer to try and get her fired.
