I am really heartsick about Cecil the lion.
This isn’t a terribly unique reaction for me, as I get very upset every time I see a proud hunter displaying their kill. Especially when they’re so proud of killing an endangered wildlife.
How does taking a life merely for sport NOT negatively affect them???
Hunting for food, I get. It’s not something I do- but I can understand it. Especially if the hunter respects the animal and the process and truly uses the meat.
Hunting just for the thrill of killing an animal is something I do not and never will understand.
I honestly believe people that get off on killing animals are mentally ill. I mean, there’s just something wrong there, when you can be so cavalier about extinguishing life.
And this particular hunter I find revolting. And not just because he lives in my city.
All the circumstances surrounding this “hunt” seem suspicious– or at least a bit fishy. And it doesn’t help that this guy got in trouble a few years back for illegally killing a bear.
Personally, I hope this guy’s life gets upended and he suffers for his decisions.
At this point, all I can say is, I’m sorry Cecil. I’m sorry that some humans really suck. And I’m sorry that we couldn’t protect you better.
Inexplicable human behavior.
RAMEN, brother! string this dude up by the balls in the hot sun and let him rot there!
Unfortunately, there are men who need to blow the ass off of something before they can feel like they own a set of balls.
I agree with you 100%. Hopefully karma will take care of this guy.
There’s a channel on YouTube that I’ve watched. He takes care of the bigger cats. Things like Jaguars, Pumas et al. I’ve noted they have behaviors just like my own house cat. And some of them purr just the same. Never understood hunting for sport though.
