How someone can look at these magnificent creatures and see only dollar signs is something I just can't wrap my head around.
Africa and all countries, including right here in the US, need to follow Botswana and Zambias lead in outlawing these "hunts".

And I will continue to dream that Dick Cheney goes hunting with Ted Nugent on his Texas killing ranch...lot's of blood, but not a single 4 legged animal gets hurt ;-)

I just can't find the word's on this one,again when I read this sort of thing and know this is happening to the innocent, it makes me more not want to admit that I have anything to do with the human species.Just bloody horrible.

That's not hunting. That's shooting fish in a barrel. Where's the challenge in that? I get that hunting is a part of life. It's been happening for thousands of years. But let's do it humanely and for a REASON other than a trophy.

Let's shut them down. Get petitions out to expose what they are doing. The psychological profile of serial killers is consistent with the characteristic traits of hunters . . . . why would any country want to promote this behavior.

Noted. I agree that this is NOT hunting, it's just despicable! Guess this is one way those 1%-ers can spend some of that hard earned money they stole from us. I don't want to know what they'll come up with next.

This is inhumane and must be stopped! I think that I signed a petition on Care2 calling for an end to this dreadful crime against nature.

I'm trying to think of something that is more despicable than shooting a tame, caged animal. I seriously don't understand how these people can ever look at themselves in the mirror and not be completely disgusted.

These lowlifes that shoot these animals are not true hunters they are cowards that can't play on an even playing field.ow can they even call this a sport ? a sport is where both parties are willing participants which is not the case here.

I could not watch the video.
Those who think that they are getting away with all the killing they are doing, are living in an illusion, because nothing gets away from God!!

This is beyond sick. This needs to be banned now. Killing these magnificent creatures for fun and money is disgraceful. The greedy ones that make money off the ones that need to feed their egos to boast I shot a lion are pathetic. This is not hunting, this is just slaughter.

Shame! Sick bastards! IŽd love to hunt all human hunters.
