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.
