I think by now you have all heard about Cecil the lion who was lured out of his sanctuary, shot with a bow and arrow by an idiot dentist.
Here’s a video just to refresh your memory:
Now this has outraged the world community, and I’m not just talking about the vegans and vegetarians among us … oh no, many a meat eater is up in arms about Cecil – and rightly so.
So what has prompted me to blog about something that you all know about? I mean Cecil has been widely reported both on the internet and on mainstream media.
Well, it was this young lady … Sabrina Corgatelli (and I use the term “lady” very, very loosely!)
So let’s go with another video:
“Giraffes are very dangerous” duh! so are you!!!! The difference is, you’ve got a gun, the giraffe doesn’t …. the giraffe, or any other animal for that matter, can’t stalk you the way you stalk them.
I don’t care what reason these trophy hunters have. I don’t believe they respect or love animals. If they were that keen on “hunting” with a love of animals they would be carrying a camera not a weapon.
A person who “hunts” with a camera, in my opinion, has far more courage than all these trophy hunters put together.
Africa needs to be promoting the “camera hunt” far more – make it just as expensive!!!!!
And kudos to the airlines who have banned the shipment of trophies ….. just need the shipping companies now to follow suit!
I can feel my blood boiling – so signing off.
