Why? It's legal, and the elephant population is at least sustainable if not overpopulating some areas of Africa.

Any of you bunnyhuggers have a clue how much that CEO paid to kill that elephant? Try somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 grand, with a significant percentage of that going directly back to manageing and perpetuating wildlife habitat in Africa.

No doubt this CEO is doing more for the African wilderness than anyone else reading this.

Frankly, killing any animal just for the sport of it is plain barbaric. I wish a herd of elephants would attack the shit out of this jackass! Tha's all he can do with his money; what a pathetic waste of a human being!

And let's not forget the joy of pure sadism!

Elephants are highly social, relying on extended tribes. Their social relations are much more complex than just herd.

They are not fungible like cows are.(Sorry to use words you can't understand.)

And the financial argument is BS. The money goes to the sadism tour operators, mostly. If it were about him helping wildlife he'd give the same money and just go shoot the elephants with a camera.

I hope one of his family members gets shot and killed in a car jacking or home invasion. Wishes for karma from us nice "bunny huggers."

I totally agree.

It's one thing to kill for food but it's totally something else when it's done for blood sport. It's especially sick when the animals hunted, abandoned circus, zoo animals and exotic pets, are put in staged hunting operations. They're so used to humans they don't even see us as predators. The hunters who "jess has to go out and shoots me sumpin'" walk up to them and shoot them.

I actually heard someone say, in a lame attempt at defending Michael Vick, that slaughtering animals to eat was morally equivalent to what Vick did.

No it's not.

And I'm not sure of the elephant's status on the endangered lists. I do know there's been a continuing rise in the ivory trade. So if elephants are not already back on the lists, they soon will be.

I read the whole story. It just hurts my heart. Why did he want to kill the animal? What did he get out of it? It is just sad on many points the murder of that animal,that he doesn't care what he has done to the hurd that it belong to, and (i hope) his business bleeding out too.

There are many heterosexual white Christians who deplore this senseless act. Trying to identify this with Christian heterosexuals is hardly a noble act on your part.

Who cares what you say? You're no Christian. You're an xstain talibangelical bigot who acts out a serious sexual disorder online for two hours each night.

Gosh, then lets kill lots more Elephnts and Lions and anything else that moves.

If he wanted to be the "big game hunter" why do it in safety behind a high powered rifle? What glory is there in that?

Lets see how good a hunter he is with a spear, now that would be a bit of brevery!

Overpopulated Elephants and others? So how about instead of killing them we ship the young offspring to other parts of Africa to spread the gene pool around to make the species stronger?

Just a thought.

There were more black Africans involved in this whole killing affair than the white man. Who got the money, who provided lodging, who was the guide, etc? All Black Business people. If you want to loose shit Stantoni, use the toilet and not this forum for your expertly produced waste.
