That is you in a nutshell MD! :trollface:



Well yeah, that's why I usually eat cows. What do you eat, Bald Eagles?

I don't know. But I do know animal rights nuts like to use photos and videos to emotionally manipulate people. Remember the polar patting the dog he was about to eat?


Yes i remember that Madders.

I was going to tell everyone i'd shown the picture to the truth, but i haven't go round to it yet.

Anyway what they don't know, won't do them any harm.

I suppose that makes sense Madders, but is it really necessary to pose with the animals after they've been shot?

Yes, that's what bothers me the most... I don't really mind the hunting so much ( for the right reason ) although I wouldn't ever do it myself...I resent the posing and the stupid grins on the posers faces, the sheer delight at the death they just caused. What talent does one have to posses, or what great achievement is it, to go after an animal with a rifle, other than trying not to miss?

I resent people who kill just for sport...food yes, sport and fun NO!

Very little talent is needed to shot dead animals on these hunting trips Holls, all you need is a fat wallet.

Look at these two.

That lion would have been drugged out his head and presented to that fat slob to kill.

He couldn't swat a fly without getting out of breath, never mind hunt and kill a lion.

They are considered trophies, like a big fish. People have taken photos of things they have done for as long as there have been cameras.

Why do people take a pictures of anything?

The Italian vet you posted about died while hunting. I'm not going to pretend it's really all that dangerous (except for heart attacks), but the typical hunter doesn't have the money for trophy hunts.

To this kid, this is a trophy. For many people that feeling never gets old.

Maybe his parents should have told him not to smile?

Because dead animals are depressing, anything dead is depressing, especially when they're mammals like us...and yes, why do people feel the urge to take pics of death? Just weird and a bit depraved.

Dead animals are not depressing to a hunter, or they wouldn't hunt. A dead animal is the culmination of a hunt.

Does a well cooked steak depress you?
