I have no idea what she's smiling about. Big antlers? Big deal. Some animals grow them, so what. Airhead.

Oops, no antlers (before morning coffee and I'm mistaking it for another trophy kill of some other animal). Airhead still remains.

Noted and signed. People that hunt and poach should be shot in the kneecaps and left for the wild animals to rip to shreds.

Signed & Noted! “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated…I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by [people] from the cruelty of [human kind]”—Mahatma Gandhi..........So true and I honestly had no idea that these animals were the target practice of Olympic shooting athletes...I'm really shocked as I had assumed they used a bulls eye type of practice
device. I certainly won't be watching that anymore!

I am horrified and appalled that trophy hunting - or any hunting for that matter - is endorsed by olympic athletes. Another reason for me to boycott the London olympics - aside from Cardiff scientists sewing kitten's eyes shut. Disgusting.

No way! I have an idea,why not quiting this Olympic business and be done with it once and for all? I am sure the
"Immortal Ancient Spirit" (translating from Greek right now a quote about the spirit of the games) wont mind..
Probably its in a corner somewhere crying..
