Maria i agree with Kim O. and naomi cohen ! i did a search for Caracal images for you
Caracal pictures

Many beautiful images of this amazingly stunning cat ...
there are also images too painful to look at including one of a man holding up a dead Caracal which could be Richards. The image linked to your post sickens me as it does all of us. Karma will surely be his reward !

His term ends at the end of 2012--when Brown can replace him. Also on the May agenda are changing the rules on how the chair is selected (he and the prior chair were the only votes making him chair).

Good riddance and i hope the door kicks him in the rear. He is a slimeball, sadly there are alot more like him.

Encouraging to hear that someone so insensitive to the will of the people he serves, not even going to comment on how senseless he is with regard to the animals he represents . . . is on the hot seat and possibly going to lose his job. It's about time a progressive mind set won out! Even most hunters don't advocate hunting an animal that is not a food species. Thus his behavior is also disgusting to the majority of people who call themselves hunters.

@ Naiomi = Richards might deserve to be gutted & stuffed but I would never stoop so low as to call putting his head on my wall....a trophy. How discusting! SMILE!

@ Lydia = I seriously doubth that Richards will EVER get what he truely deserves. There is NOT enough punnishment and bad karma that can be placed upon this many for the atrocities that he has committed.
