Hunters of wild animals stagger me, we live in what some scientists are now calling the sixth mass extinction yet some people feel the need to speed up the process by killing animals that are already low in numbers. Lion numbers are down to their thousands, some breeds of Tiger are down to the last few hundred as are certain species of Elephant and Rhinos yet all of these amazing animals are at risk of being randomly killed and bought even closer to extinction by hunters for numerous reasons, their coat, teeth, horn, tusk or just to pass time any excuse to kill, kill, kill.
These disgusting people have their photographs taken with them standing next to the dead animal with disturbing grins on their faces as if they genuinely believe that they have done something amazing, well they have not! If a man was to kill a Lion, Tiger, Bear (Kuala bear excluded), Elephant or a Rhino with nothing but his hands I would be amazed and forced to admit that “the kill” was an achievement worthy of being proud of, but the fact that these “hunters” use guns against an animal that has no idea what the “hunters” are planning and an animal that may be used to seeing people around and therefore they may be not overly fearful of people making them easier to hunt.
It would be like me stalking Wladimir Klitschko, shooting him and posing with his remains, would that mean I beat Klitschko? I bravely outsmarted him by pulling a trigger as he was about to take a nap? Would I deserve credit? I can not comprehend the “hunters” logic.
