    great and we hold the view that your beliefs are both silly and should be ignored by hunters. your opinion on that lady hunter is really extreme and to denigrate her and insinuate she is morally bankrupt is in itself morally bankrupt

    applying facts to the Bambist views is often amusing.

    I remember when my father-then trying to break the world record for tarpon taken on 12 pound test line was castigated by a Bambist over him noting that before they fished an area, they caught as many sharks as they could because sharks tended to destroy fish that were on line (fish that would be returned to the water after being measured)

    this woman screamed that there was no evidence that sharks did this

    until the captain of the boat noted that tarpon is what was used as BAIT for those sharks!

    Thanks for the support.

    I think Zimbabwe and South Africa also have healthy populations of game animals. At the end of the day, big game industry that gives back to local communities makes the animals far too valuable to kill frivoulessly. Heck, I would not be surprised if some out fitters will track and trap livestock eating predators and relocate them as predators saved by relocation can be sold for big bucks in well managed hunts.

    Then factor in the support that wealthy safari hunters give to high end fire arms companies. The safari game hunter that I knew had a collection of Weatherby rifles and rifles made by an expensive French company (the name escapes me). Not to mention a Berretta shotgun with custom engraving.

    This is not the same woman or giraffe Gervais was on about and this isn't hunting

    And of course it gave a smiling trophy hunter the chance to kill a large stationary target at close range with a high powered rifle. Must have taken a lot of hunting skill that . I would be a good deal more convinced of her alleged altruistic motivations were she not quite so visibly happy about doing it. The photo pretty much speaks for itself

    Though I cant read her mind, I noticed that she is slim, trim and does not have a wedding ring on.

    That, and her in all probability wise conservationist views as a sportswoman would make her uhmm...."fair game" for me- had not my hunting permit been revoked twenty years ago by my wife.

    Nonsense. Unless someone is poaching (the real crime) the locals get the animal, end of story. Does not matter who shoots it. Thinning the herd is as necessary for them as it is for deer here.

    I surely hope it was a stationary target harvested at close range.... that provides a much better chance for a clean kill.

    I really don't care.

    I think big game hunting is for idiots.

    I also think trampling hunters is for idiots.

    The quadrapedal idiot won this time, I'm sure us bipedalists will be back in there to even the score.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    It doesn't matter what the motivation is , the net result is the same.
