    Actually I think its a pretty good analogy. Killing these kind of animals for fun is positively neanderthal despite the various lame excuses used to justify it

    Actually.. again that's not true.

    First of all, mountain climbing has environmental impacts. All those people climbing causes soil erosion, it causes habitat destruction to a degree, in heavy use areas.. you almost invariably have garbage and it disrupts the animals in the area.. and at certain times, that can have a significant impact during critical times (like birthing times). In addition.. as someone that has been part of search and rescue.. when mountain climbers get in trouble.. or lost, etc.... they can often put rescuers had significant risk.

    No, I haven't.

    I have hunted for things I would eat that have healthy populations, though. That is why I said, "trophy hunting".

    Never heard of a mountain climber that deliberately set out to kill.

    Except you are wrong. First of all,,, when it comes to hunting success rates are generally extremely low. And elk hunter in my region has about a 14% success rate. If it was "love of killing". then why would you do something that killing was something that occurred about 14% of time?. Yet thousands of hunters hunt elk in my region. The same with elephants and giraffes etc. the success rates are not 100%.. and again.. if it was just about killing.. then bull, calf, cow.. would not matter. Yet it does... hunters will pay 50,000 dollars to hunt that big bull. And pass up other bulls, and so on... and they will go home without making a kill, simply because they didn't feel that the bull was big enough. Or that they never got an ethical shot off.

    By the way... most likely in the region that you were watching elephants... they were likely not hunted and therefore have lost their fear of man and often associate humans and food . That's in large part what makes them such easy targets for poachers that venture into these game parks and makes them nuisances to farmers when they wander out of the reserves protected areas and into farmland.

    I call BS..

    From the South African rules and regulations:

    Enclosures, drugs -- No hunting of an animal which is tranquilized or immobilized
    by drugs or trapped against a fence or in a small enclosure where the animal does
    not have a fair chance to evade the hunter
    o [note: “small enclosure” is not defined]

    What have Elk got to do with my post ? Elephants and giraffes are not Elk

    The same with elephants and giraffes etc. the success rates are not 100%.. and again.. if it was just about killing.. then bull, calf, cow.. would not matter.

    Its why anyone would want to do such a thing in the first place that I take issue with. In this day and age Its quite barbaric frankly.
