Nice shooting.

Awww, nothing makes a little girl feel more special than slaughtering one of nature's most magnificent creatures.


'When I looked through that scope I didn't see it as a bear, I saw it as a 300 pound lion that's about to attack you, so I held the gun as steady as I could, I turned my head and than I shot,'

I--- what?

So it's easier to shoot a lion? Or are lions more likely to attack you than bears?

She turned her head? So she wasn't even looking when she pulled the trigger?

I'll blame the Daily Fail for the than/then confusion.

Little monster.

Conelius is beside himself and honestly I can't blame him. What did that poor, innocent bear ever do to her? Not to mention that, at 300lbs, the bear was probably younger than her. Might as well have shot one of those 13 year olds who murdered their great grandmother. At least they deserve it.

Was awesome until I saw the dead bear. Now I'm just sad.

Karma will be a biatch when she ends up dead. You might think someone facing death might have a bit more respect for beautiful creatures still living.

I hope there is an afterlife and this bear is waiting for her there.

Well, I guess now we know why she needs a heart transplant: hers is defective.

that's farked up.

I mean, I get eating meat -top carnivore and all.
and I get people that hunt for food -native people that needed to, and used the whole animal and such.
and I get that if you need to eat, and need to hunt for the food, then you gotta kill animals. Cool.

but killing animals for fun. That I don't get.
 
2012-10-05 05:37:28 AM
I'm not a hippy or anything, but I hate to see any animal killed for no reason (except mosquitoes, they make their bed when they try to bite me) even spiders that I am terrified of, I won't kill. However, if it is for food then I agree with hunting. A man that hunts his meat is no more a monster than a man who buys his meat. That said, if this family do not eat this bear, then they can all go fark themselves!
And that silly prick in the comments, farking culls? Black bears are not farking rabbits, they typically have 2 cubs in a litter in 2 year cycles and the more cubs they have the greater the mortality rate in the litter. The woods are farking huge, why the hell would you need to cull? Oh for sport...

She actually snuffed a bear. The hell she's going to is the one that rocks.

She wants to hunt bear? Dip her in honey, give her a knife, and leave her in the woods.

What, you think all those hunters were all mopey and guilty and vagina-y when they went out to kill a mammoth?

"Man, it just doesn't seem right, us setting fire to this grassland to frighten this poor creature off of a cliff, before we impale it with our spears?"

Fark that, I bet they had tons of fun.
 
2012-10-05 05:44:07 AM
To be fair, that bear was probably trying to shoot her.

Anyway, at least it looks like that family's numbers are going to be thinned out.

sendtodave: What, you think all those hunters were all mopey and guilty and vagina-y when they went out to kill a mammoth?


They were hungry and needed to eat. They did what they had to do. I got no problem with that.

What you call "being vagina-ey" (which is, itself, kind of a weird insult) , I call "not taking sadistic pleasure in killing things."
 
2012-10-05 05:56:37 AM

Anyone remember this PR delight from the Make A Wish foundation?

http://articles.latimes.com/1996-05-11/news/mn-2933_1_bear-hunt

What's the best way to feel better about immanent death? Killing. Now Make A Wish outsources their hunting related wishes, so they can make it look like they don't do that any more. As non-profits go, Make A Wish is just about my least favorite. For many reasons.

She should get her meat at the grocery store in shrink wrapped packages like everyone else does. Because killing animals is wrong.

What did the bear do to deserve being shot and killed like that? It's one thing to kill living creatures for food so that you can survive, but it's another to just kill them for the hell of it.

Why do we kill ants? Because ants bite us and cause lots of trouble. Ok fine, then kill them. Why swat flies? Because they carry germs and nasty stuff and they want to suck our blood. Fine, kill them. But what the hell did that bear do? Do you need to eat a bear? If you need to eat it, then fine hunt and kill it! Just don't waste the lives of living creatures for petty little reasons as adding them to your home decor or for fun. At least eat what you kill or use them as medicine. Hanging their dead bodies on your wall won't prolong your life.

At least when people hunt deer, they actually eat most of it. I doubt that kid would even take a bite out of that bear if somebody cooks it.

I wonder how that girl would feel if it was her family that's being hunted down for fun by aliens or just plain evil people. "Nooo don't kill my mommy and turn her head into an ice cream bowl!".

What if they enjoyed it? Because I'm betting that they did. Immensely.

Hunter/gatherer societies put the hunters at the top of the social hierarchy. It was the most important social institution. Hunting wasn't just important because they needed to eat; they could gather stuff, grow stuff.

But that's lame. That's women's work.

Anyway, they farking loved them some hunting. Do you think they'd feel resigned to "doing what they had to do?"

I think they bathed in blood and partied.

What you call "being vagina-ey" (which is, itself, kind of a weird insult) , I call "not taking sadistic pleasure in killing things."

Alright, alright, don't get penis-y.
 
2012-10-05 06:04:51 AM
I love hunting as much as the next guy, but this is BS. You hunt for food.

It's really time to cull the herd. Of humans.

This is right up next to people who slaughter doe for the hell of it. I'm pretty sure that out of any thing in this world that upsets me, child abuse/neglect is just about the only thing worse.

fiver5: She should get her meat at the grocery store in shrink wrapped packages like everyone else does. Because killing animals is wrong.


This is the dumbest comment I've ever read. You know that in order to make that meat that you buy at the grocery store, that someone has to kill the animal it comes from? Just because you're buying something at the store doesn't mean that that animal wasn't slaughtered. It most definitely was.

If I had my druthers, I'd put a stop to killing animals for food. Humans are an agricultural species and don't need meat to survive.

Good lord. I'm always surprised at the number of people on Fark that think killing an animal like this is a horrible tragedy. None of you need to eat meat. You do it because you like it. If killing this bear gives this little girl and her family some comfort good for them. As long as the animal is not endangered have at it.

Never have been into killing animals, but I'll eat the hell out of them. It's dead. If you don't eat it then it died in vain.

That bear is never going to frolic in a meadow. Never going to gorge itself on berries. Never going to find another bear to mate with and have cubs and raise them. This beat's life was cut short by this little girl.

That's sad.
 
2012-10-05 06:22:55 AM
I may not be morally superior to many people on this earth but I will happily say at least I didn't wish an eleven year old child dead due to her legal recreational and dietary choices.

I hear bears are DEELISH! I've got some room in the freezer if she doesn't want him. Bet the fat slobs are tender as hell.
 
2012-10-05 06:22:55 AM
Well done snookums! That means you really are stronger and more powerful than a bear, doesn't it! Unfortunately, you won't be able to take that rifle with you where you're going! The bear is waiting for you then.

Hm, not sure this is a strong argument. It's saying that there is an arbitrary line where an animal's life is forfeit. The "use" of the animal has to be for food, not for entertainment, in this case. Why the distinction?

A better argument might be that, morally (not pragmatically), the bear's life is worth more than the little girl's entertainment, but even that is pretty arbitrary.

'I felt thankful, like really thankful I shot a bear,' said Kaitlynn.

THANK YOU JESUS FOR HELPING ME SHOOT A RANDOM ANIMAL IN THE HEART

Seriously, why would you hunt animals you cant eat? I always thought it was to prove you had the biggest c0ck. On your head.

There's some redneck organization that formed after Make-a-Wish ruled against fulfilling a dying kid's wish to kill a member of an endangered species (forgot which one).
So if you're white trash and want your last act on Earth to be taking a life, there you go. The world will benefit from your passing.

Here's a recipe to get her started!

Hibernating Bear with Black Magic Sauce
2 - 3 # bear roast (depending on the size of your crock-pot)
Brown well on all sides. Place in crock-pot with a cup or so of water and salt & pepper. Cook on Hi for 3-4 hours.

Turn down to Lo. Add potatoes and carrots in large cubes. Add more water if necessary. Cook another 3-4 hours. Don't lift the lid any oftener than necessary. Remember, he's sleeping!

Serve the following on the side or skip the veggies and add to the roast when you turn down the heat. If you decide to add to the roast, don't add more water to it as you might if you are going to add veggies.

Black Magic Sauce
Sauté:
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 T butter
Add and simmer 4 minutes
1/2 C cabernet
Add and simmer 5 minutes
1 tsp salt
1 - 2 tsp pepper
1/1/2 tsp dry mustard
3 packed T brown sugar
1 T Worcestershire sauce
11/2 T lemon juice
1 C prepared brown gravy

Nom nom!

NannyStatePark: I hear bears are DEELISH!


You heard wrong. Also, a 900-lb bull elk with a 20-point rack tastes like sh*t compared to one of the more plentiful elk cows. And mountain lions, they also taste like sh*t. Of course, the taste doesn't matter. What matters is snapping the photo and keeping the picture out for ostentatious viewing.
 
2012-10-05 06:32:17 AM
Why would your dying wish be to kill some random wild animal that's just minding it own business?

curriemaster: Seriously, why would you hunt animals you cant eat?


I still think that "if you eat it, then that's OK" is motivated reasoning. I don't see the distinction.

Most people that would even debate this crisis of conscious don't need to eat meat. They assuredly don't need to hunt for it. There is tofu at the supermarket.

But, eating meat makes people happy, at the expense of an animal's life. Not much different than sport killing. Dead animal, happy person. Animal exists to make person happy.

The animal doesn't go "Oh, you're killing me so that I can rot in your intestinal tract, instead of leaving my carcass to rot on the ground, so that's OK."

Is killing an animal for the pleasure of a tasty burger really less "sadistic?"

Nice. And I agree.

Too bad the little coont didn't die before she killed that magnificent creature of nature.
