Thank you Cher for sharing with all of us, haven't watched any of these shows. these shows should be on the hunting networks not on Animal Planet or Discovery or History.

Bizarre, as I always think of wildlife not wanting to bother with most people and they should not be depicted as a menace - but there are those who want to increase ratings by presenting everything including wildlife as 'the enemy.'

Point is that somebody permit to show this crap on tv, this is the bad part of democracy. Thanks Cher.

Great article. This shows the powers of Television Networks.I trust National Geographic the most, to give factual information and to portray animals as they live and survive. Humans with their imaginations will twist subjects where animals of any kind are vicious and a menace.
Thank You Cher.

I don't watch the Discovery Channel and I certainly avoid any programmes that in any way glorifying killing animals. A good report from the Guardian newspaper, which I read regularly. Thanks for posting Cher and Julie.
