If you are not capable of just stating signed and noted or shared please do not post on my stuff. There were numerous petitions maybe it was from a different site. I found that post to be highly offensive and do not want it on my posts.
I ask that no more of these posts be on my stuff, thanx

Signed. How low can you sink? This would make a ROCK sick. I could throw up in the face of whomever put this travesty together. In this day and age of wanton slaughter of wildlife, we need TV presentations on how to PRESERVE nature, not kill it. Man's love of killing is a major part of his insanity.

There are so few elephants left. I saw an article & picture that show the ivory tusks from 71 elephants. Where are we and how are we going to save the ones left. This is not funny and I believe the NRA has the mentality of the rock.

I applaud PETA for really going after this horrific show and thank you Kelly so much for posting! It is obvious that Tony Makris, wouldn't you know, an NRA lobbyist is a real sicko- shooting highly endangered animals such as elephants, rhinos, and leopards, for his own pleasure?! This show needs to be cancelled immediately and I hope that NBC gets such a negative backlash from the public that they have to cancel it! This is nothing but glorified poaching as far as I'm concerned and what a terrible message they are sending to young people. That somehow just because you can pay a lot of money and call yourself a trophy hunter and then you can kill an endangered animal that it is different than poaching! Its not! It is every bit as immoral!

Letter sent and also shared on FB! Please everyone share this with all your friends and family. The more letters and petitions that are sent, the more likely they are to cancel this horrible killing show! No wonder we have so much violence in our society!

There is another C2 discussion about this and two people posted that the show HAS been cancelled. Good thing! It's disgusting.
