    Why did this guy have to kill something to give a $350k donation. This is not about the donation at all. It is the showing off of not only ones ability to afford such a thing, but also ones ability to hunt down what people believe to be a dangerous animal. This guys is playing off of the ignorance of all of you here.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    and the killing of this rhino.
    I didn't kill any rhino.

    It wasn't to give a donation, it was to eliminate non breeding animals that prevent the future breeding of offspring. They are simply hunted too much for this to take its natural course. Killing the animal was to allow breeding stock to help the population grow.
    This is not about the donation at all. It is the showing off of not only ones ability to afford such a thing, but also ones ability to hunt down what people believe to be a dangerous animal. This guys is playing off of the ignorance of all of you here.
    From what I have read about the white rhinos they are extinct.

    The article did not claim any problems. However, the article did state that they sell 5 kill licences a year (whether the animal is an asshole, old or both). If the hunter is so god-damned concerned about rhinos as he says he is, why doesn't he just donate the money... period? That right... he does not give a flying ****.
    Condemning a 'son of a bitch' for disrespecting the flag -- all the while being Putin's little bitch -- has made my irony meter explode. Sad!

    it's even sillier when we look at countries where they put their beliefs into policy...especially African countries.

    no better way for force extinction of some of these threatened animals than to ban managed hunts ( which leaves the killing to poachers, who aren't known to fund conservation efforts)


    It's no wonder animal population grow and thrive when managed hunts are available... ( keyword is managed)
