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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

An Indian man wanted the bear necessities on improving his libido and he allegedly slaughtered some animals to do so.
According to the BBC, a man simply known as Yarlen was arrested on Oct. 19 in the Indian state of Gujarat, accused of killing a number of sloth bears and eating their penises.
Yarlen had reportedly been on the lam since 2014 after he was arrested for allegedly killing two bears in Kanha National Park, located in Madhya Pradesh, India. The man had previously served a year in jail before going on the run after being let out on bail.
The suspect is part of Pardhi-Behelia, a nomadic tribe that believes the genitals of sloth bears are aphrodisiacs.
Authorities say Yarlen, who went by many aliases, was a major figure in the tiger poaching circles in central India. The BBC reported Yarlen was suspected in several poaching and trading cases involving endangered animals in central and western India.

According to authorities, Yarlen is wanted in relation to six crimes, three of which involve tiger poaching, in the Indian states of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Oh, deer.
In an ironic twist of fate, an Arkansas hunter lost his life after being attacked by a deer he had just shot.
Thomas Alexander, 66, had shot a buck with a muzzle-loading firearm in Yelleville when he was reportedly attacked by the wounded animal after he went to check on its condition. According to news station KY3, the still very much alive deer left several puncture wounds in the man’s body.
“I don’t know how long he left it there, but he went up to check it to make sure it was dead. And evidently it wasn’t,” said Keith Stephens, spokesperson for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
After being ambushed by the deer, Alexander was able to call his family, who in return called authorities.

The man later died in hospital. Officials have not disclosed whether his death was a result of the wounds or another cause. There are no plans for an autopsy for death confirmation.
Stephens told CBS News incidents where animals kill humans are “very rare,” noting one similar case in 2016 when a deer attacked another hunter. In that instance, the hunter survived.
Two canine units sent by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission were dispatched to find the deer, but were unsuccessful. It’s not known whether the wounded deer survived the shooting.

A Kiwi mother of three who hunts to supplement her family’s diet is under fire for posting her gory kills online.
Lucy Rose Jaine — who says her family is opposed to meat from factory farms — has been deluged with death threats.
One of the problems that have put a social media bull’s-eye on the 29-year-old’s back is her habit of posting photos with a carcass over her shoulders.
She told the U.K. Sun she started hunting when she met her husband and has since become enamoured with the outdoors.

She said they mostly hunt wild pigs but also bag deer, goats, wallabies and others.
“I like that we can teach our children how to hunt their own food,” she told the newspaper.

“Some guy just said, ‘I hope you die.’ I obviously didn’t respond. I hope he finds happiness.”
She called the family diet “ideal, organic and sustainable.”
Jaine added that the wild pigs can be a nuisance and hunting them “helps the farmers.”
”I’ve had a few death threats from people who just don’t have any experience with hunting,” she said. “Or maybe they are against animal cruelty. But I don’t take it to heart.”

Mule deer ignore the falling snow north of Alberta's Big Hill Springs Provincial Park on Nov. 5, 2018.Mike Drew / Postmedia Network
Where’s the beef?
Out in the Canadian woods, apparently. Blog TO (and freshdaily) want you to have a nervous breakdown because hunters are posting pictures of their kill — mostly deer — now that hunting season is upon us.
Let’s not take that bait, people. Canadian hunters have mouths to feed.
What was it Gary Dunford used to say? Everybody wants a hamburger, but nobody wants to see the meat grinder … something like that. Nobody wants to know about killing the cow and removing the hide and butchering the meat, etc. Yergh!! Pass the ketchup.
If you eat meat, you can’t really argue that hunting and posting pictures of the kill are offensive. Every hunter responding in high dudgeon to blogTO made it clear that hunting puts food on the table — a protein source most claimed to be superior to the meat from factory farmed animals available at your local grocery store.
Story continues below
Many hunters responded by pointing out the need to cull the deer herd (now that natural predators are on the wane) while others wrote about the conservation work done by hunters and fishers.
Some people referenced cultural norms; others spoke about life outside the big city.
The one thing nobody mentioned was hunting for the sake of killing things, which most would agree is some kind of abomination. Why would anyone hunt and kill an elephant or a giraffe or a wild cat?
Rule of thumb: If you can’t eat it, don’t kill it. Photos of the Eric and Donnie Trump Jr. (or anyone else) with dead animals they’ve shot for ‘sport’ are a good reminder of the many connections between cruelty to animals and cruelty to people. Is this the right place to mention that many infamous serial killers got their start in childhood, killing neighbourhood cats and dogs?
Anyone who is cruel to animals is suspect.
As for posing with the bloody dead deer you just killed and posting that photo on social media, yeah — that’s not something everyone can get behind. It’s kind of gross if that’s not your thing. On the other hand, does anyone really want to see pictures of your car or your lunch or your naked bum? They do not, but these photos are also posted by people on the regular. So chacun son gout, which is one of those fancy French phrases that is difficult to translate but more or less means everyone likes his own goat best.
If it bothers you that people eat deer at all — Bambiiii! — remember that the Chinese, Italians and Mexicans (among many others) eat horse meat and Koreans and Nigerians eat dog.
North Americans eat spareribs from a dear, smart, pink little piggie but would never, ever eat Fido! Go figure.
In New Guinea, the Biyani and Korowai tribes allegedly still eat people.
Let’s hope they have no access to social media.

Nothing gets hunters into the spirit of the holiday season than by shooting Rudolph in the wild.
A Scottish-based sport hunting agency is offering trophy hunters with deep pockets the opportunity to hunt wild reindeer in the wild at national parks in Norway, and that news isn’t sitting too well with animal lovers online.
According to The Daily Star, Fife, Scotland-based Hendry, Ramsay and Waters has trips available for people to target the animals synonymous with Christmas with their hunting rifles. The wild reindeer are reportedly the last surviving population of its kind in Europe and they live in two of Norway’s largest national parks.

“We have full exclusivity in both the Breheimen and Jotunheimen national parks, which hold Europe’s last-surviving population of wild reindeer, which have been hunted here since the Ice Age,” Hendry, Ramsay and Waters states on its website. “The Jotunheimen national park reopens this year after being closed to all hunting for the past eight years, so this untouched territory will really be worth a visit.”
Pictures shared online depict proud hunters with their bloody kills.
The hunting isn’t sitting too well with Nick Weston of League Against Cruel Sports, a U.K.-based animal welfare non-profit organization.
“It’s hardly in the spirit of Christmas to shoot Rudolph, is it?” Weston told The Daily Star. “There is no justification for shooting animals for fun at any time of the year, but to celebrate Christmas by killing Santa’s reindeer doesn’t really keep with the season of goodwill.
“When will we learn that animals are not commodities and give them the gift of life instead of needlessly killing them?”
It’s estimated that there are about 200,000 reindeer in Norway. The animals travel long distances looking for lichen a form of algae commonly known as reindeer moss.
In addition to reindeer, Hendry, Ramsay and Waters also offer opportunities to hunt moose, bears, wolves, kudu, zebra, antelope and bushbuck.

GRUESOME DISCOVERY: Poachers kill 16 lions in South Africa, hack off paws and faces

It was a gruesome discovery for Gert Blom.
The South African animal breeder and bush lodge owner found a total of 16 lions dead due to poisoning last week, with their paws and parts of their faces hacked off by poachers.
“They had hacked off 32 paws for the claws and eight of their snouts for their teeth after killing them with poisoned chicken which is a really agonizing death for the lions,” Blom said, according to The Daily Mail.
“It is cruelty that is beyond belief and an absolutely terrible sight to behold when you see magnificent predators lying there covered in flies minus their faces and their paws.”
Blom, who owns Predators Rock Bush Lodge in Rustenburg near Pretoria, awoke Friday morning and didn’t hear the lion pride roaring. He went to their enclosure and discovered six lions and two lionesses missing, along with two cubs. He followed trails made by the animals being dragged on the grass to an area outside the perimeter wall and made the grisly find.

Following a post mortem, Blom determined both lionesses were about to give birth to three cubs each.
“With the eight dead cubs — six unborn and the two that were almost certainly poisoned from their mother’s milk — that means the poachers effectively killed 16 lions,” Blom said.
However, one cub was found lucky to be alive and is being bottle-fed by Blom.
Blom added he found four sets of footprints on the property.
Local police launched an investigation but have yet to make an arrest.

'HE DIDN'T STOP': Seal attack leaves defenceless hunter with shredded leg

MONTREAL — A Quebec hunter had to be airlifted to hospital this week following what was described as a rare seal attack on a Nova Scotia island.
Alexis Boudreault, 29, and nine other hunters were on Pictou Island Tuesday when the attack occurred. Only four of them were carrying hakapiks — clubs tipped with sharp hooks — after federal fisheries officers confiscated the tools from the others earlier in the day because their hooks were judged to be too long.
Boudreault, therefore, was defenceless when the 225-kilogram male seal charged.
“I wanted to back up,” he told The Canadian Press in an interview Friday. “Usually, a seal might strike, advancing to protect its territory. But this time, exceptionally, the seal charged. He didn’t stop. I slipped on the ice while turning around, he grabbed my leg and threw me over him.”
His fellow hunters weren’t able to get to him in time to stop the attack, but were able to scare off the animal, which returned to join its fellow seals.

Boudreault said that his experience is a reminder that while they may appear adorable in photos, seals have sharp teeth, can bite and should be respected.
The other hunters had a first aid kit and were able to provide him with treatment.
Denis Eloquin, captain of the sealing ship based out of Iles-de-la-Madeleine, communicated by radio with the Canadian Coast Guard, which arrived about two hours later to bring Boudreault by helicopter to a hospital in Charlottetown.
Eloquin said the incident took place about 4:30 p.m. and Boudreault was in hospital later that evening. His injuries required 26 stitches and he was released early Wednesday.
Boudreault has since returned to Nova Scotia. He said he intends to resume hunting when his wounds heal.
Grey seals can move faster than humans on the ground, Eloquin said, and are particularly aggressive during mating season.
But it’s the first time in 45 years that he has ever heard of a seal attacking, let alone causing such serious injuries. He said it’s also the first time he has had Fisheries and Oceans agents forbid the use of a hakapik.
“When you deprive a hunter of his tools, these are the only things you have to defend yourself,” Boudreault said. “If I’d had a hakapik, I could have defended myself, surely without even injuring the animal — just a little blow on the tip of the nose and it would have retreated.”
Eloquin said the hook is normally used to move the animal after it is killed. He said a hunter who falls into the water can also use it to get out.
Eloquin said the anomalies in the tools found by Fisheries and Oceans Canada were “insignificant.”
Boudreault said government officers lacked judgment when they confiscated the tools, adding what happened was an accident that could’ve been avoided.
A Department of Fisheries and Oceans spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
