No shiat. It was a legal hunt. Instead of whining about people doing something you don't like, try and change your laws. Ban her from your country for doing something completely legal? Grow up.

She seemed ecstatic. Maybe she'll go back out again, and the gun jams - hence a tasty meal for those seeking retribution.

Yeah.. i mean if the government allows it... how can it possibly be wrong?

I do not understand the mentality of those who kill for fun, especially something like a lion which can only be used as a macabre trophy.

It can't be regarded as pitting her wits against the lion when she uses a high powered gun from a safe distance. Can someone explain?

FTFA: "Signatory Richard Robinson wrote, 'You didn't kill a lion, you stood behind a machine and pulled a little trigger, you pathetic, sad excuse of a human.'"

The irony is that Richard Robinson typed that from behind a machine and clicked 'submit', that pathetic, sad excuse of a human.

jamspoon: It can't be regarded as pitting her wits against the lion when she uses a high powered gun from a safe distance.

Just getting into a position to get a shot off at a predator in its natural environment can be devilishly hard. Some people love that challenge. And she was apparently less than 60 yds away from it - not that safe a distance.

Myself? I'll hunt for meat, don't see the point in killing something you can't eat. But I won't begrudge others that chance, if it is legal and ethical.

It was a male lion. Some junior male lion just got a promotion.

For something so bad, the SA government sure lets a lot of hunting companies operate. Costs are about $200 per rifle. $400 per day for a guide. $2-300 per day per non-hunters ie camera crew. $50/day community fee. A trophy fee of about $10K. Travel costs. Hotel costs. VAT at around 14%.

I agree with that. But having said that, she sure has killed a lot of animals for sport. A zebra, antelope, a bunch of birds. A lot of lives that she's taken for her pleasure. Kind of sad.

TV presenter Melissa Bachman raised ire when she posted a photo of a mature male lion she allegedly shot and killed on Twitter and Facebook.


 Didn't realize there were lions on Twitter and Facebook.

She shot it at 60 yards. Big cars have legendary hearing and smell. They're very hard to track, let alone see in the wild. It takes skill.

I don't like trophy hunters all that much. But population control of animals is important, it has to be looked at the local habitat, not Africa as a whole. Meaning, lions are endangered on the continent of Africa, but over populated in S Africa.

"The 'hardcore huntress' posted a picture of herself with a lion she killed on Twitter "

I've never killed anything on Twitter, much less a lion. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.
 
2013-11-16 09:32:59 AM
That is so cruel, how can anybody do that to an animal?!?!?!?!?!?!

Now let me get back to eating my dinner, which consists of a force-fed chicken who spent his entire existence in a 2 foot pen who was then killed by being hung upside down and having its throat cut.

Wow, you can kill a lion on Twitter. I thought people just went there to kill time and brain cells.

I don't understand trophy/sport hunters, but I don't see anything to get outraged over. Hunting lions is legal in South Africa.. change THAT, rather than getting all butthurt at one hunter.
 
2013-11-16 09:40:13 AM
There are many communities that rely on the income from guided hunts to keep the locals from extreme poverty. Most guided hunts are heavily regulated. These are not poachers. You can certainly abhor killing for sport and /or bragging if you like.

This might surprise you, but using specific instances of something as a way to build awareness and support for change is common.

This happens all the time. A coworker loved to blow $10K on hunting trips there.

So why are they picking on THIS person?

Circulating a petition to ban one particular hunter indicated to me that these aren't exactly "big picture" thinkers..

And now there's only one thing left. The ultimate prey. Humans... DUN DUN DUHHHHHHHHHN!

I double-checked.  Lions are not endangered, although there are people trying to get them listed.

National Geographic disagrees:   http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/09/130902-african-lions- n ot-endangered-big-game-hunting/

In fact, they conclude that listing them as endangered is a greater threat than allowing hunting:

But to implement these strategies, these nations are in dire need of the resources that only managed hunting brings into their economies. In that light, the greatest threat to the lion's future is not from hunting, but from the potential Endangered Species Act listing.

2013-11-16 09:48:28 AM
Personally I eat everything I unt, so there's no appeal in a lot of her hunts for me but organized and regulated hunting usually has positive effects on the species in question overall.

Whitetail deer are tasty.
 
2013-11-16 09:50:59 AM
Great for the economy of SA, probably good for conservation overall, in almost all cases animal populations not in any danger-

I think that is where the manufactured ire is trying to find legitimacy. While this doesn't appeal to me, I'm all for putting large amounts of money into the ecology, and nothing does that like hunting does.

2013-11-16 09:55:39 AM
However, hunting lions is legal in several countries, including South Africa

Okay, then.  Not a big fan of the idea, but how do you ban someone from the country for doing something legal?
 
2013-11-16 09:56:29 AM
I know a lot of people that hunt. Been hunting myself. Most of them are in it for the combination of  sport and having an excuse to get out in the woods and spend all their time talking about guns and equipment; kind of like camera gearheads but with hunting. One guy however, really seems to enjoy the killing and cutting up part, and I think that he might be a sort of closet sociopath, a lot of them start out by killing animals.  Anyway, I avoid that guy but most hunters aren't bloodthirsty.

True. But every lioness is also getting new DNA as well. that is just how it works. There's no sentimentality in nature.

One where we understand the economics and science behind animal management. The Black Rhino could possibly be saved if more hunts for OTHER animals injected money into the economies of the mostly poor nations involved.

Joking aside(I find trophy hunting a little macabre) doesn't the meat in these kinds of hunts go to the locals? Not sure how edible lion is, but I thought I read that the meat in legal hunts usually isn't wasted.
