    Great so if thats her primary concern then why isn't she a game warden or veterinarian out there then ? She isn't because she would then have no trophy head to put on the wall which is of course her true motivation

    Now ... don't you feel just a little bit foolish ?

    I mean, yeah you can Roman Colosseum it. But I don't think it's necessarily good to be gleeful over human death. Other's disagree, they are entitled to their opinion, but to forsake humanity for some vengeful political points on hunting is, IMO (which I am also entitled to), rather sick.

    No you prosecute the parent for the reckless endangerment of the child. What has that to do with anything here ?

    How in the hell is "the sake of humanity" tied up in sport killing? You keep dancing around the points, which is what you always do. Here in AZ, we had a yocal go out in the desert and shoot up some Saguaro....which then collapsed and killed the cacti hunter. Sorry for the family, but it is the cycle of life (!!), survival of the fitest, something I thought you libs were all hot n bothered 'bout.

    Forsaking the humanity of an individual to cheer for an animal over the human. I'm not faulting the elephant in the OP, but at the same accord I'm sad the dude died, loss of human life tends to be a bad thing. But when various people gloat and say "He deserved it" or "good" or the various other barbaric retorts to loss of human life (not saying you did, but some have), I think (as a matter of personal opinion) that it's rather sick.

    I asked you earlier, you ignored....what is more "barbaric", the human killing for "sport" or the animal killing in self defense? Go ahead and dance your jig again.

    I don't know if either would really be "barbaric". Humans do lots of things for sport, and if their hunting practices are within legal means, within conservation means, and tools are used to not torture or prolong death of the animal, I wouldn't call it barbaric. The animal reacting is just an animal reacting, not sure you could call that barbaric either.

    Why do you think its fundamentally wrong to hunt an animal that's cunning and smart? Seriously.. I want to understand you logic on this one. Where does your rationale end? You say you hunt... well deer are smarter than butterflies.. do you really think we need to have a IQ test before an animal can be hunted?

    Personally, I think it comes down to science etc and proper conservation management.
    I think it comes down to science. We should not hunt animals that are self aware. By doing so you only exclude Chimps, Orangatans, Gorillas, Dolphins, some Whales and Elephants.
