Jeezus Christ...everything is about money with some of you. Nihilism is always fine as long as thereís a buck to be made on the other side of it.

These are the people...that if any foreign nation ever started offering 'hunting humans', they would be planning extravagant junkets to take part!!!



Its not really about the hunting so much, its more about the killing.

I wouldn't do it, but it's actually good for the long term benefit of lions.
If they are of no monetary value, farmers kill em.

What is it about big-game hunting in particular that gets so many people worked up into a righteous lather?

I hate it, but Iím fine as long as you eat whatever you kill and the animal had a fair chance to stalk you too.

Simply shooting an animal for sport is supposed to repulse you if youíre an actual thinking, feeling human being that isnít marked by complete immorality.

If the lions have monetary value, the farmers don't kill them.
If there is no profit motive to spare them, they are merely pests.
I posted a video several times (below) where
a conservationist relates how banning lion hunting in Botswana
resulted in an ultimate loss of lions.

At least this wasn't Cecil the lion that was killed, or another special named iconic lion. This one appears to be just an unimportant random lion with no special name.
