He's a hunter. fark him. He knows how the game works.

You're sitting at home, peacefully eating lunch with your family when BLAM a bullet rips out your lungs. You gasp uselessly as blood froths out of mouth and collapse. The last thing you see in your tunnel vision is your wife and children covered in your blood as you fall to the floor. A man in an orange vest kicks in your door and starts to decapitate you, because all he wanted was your head on his wall, but while your family is running away he takes a nice long look at your son and says "Soon, I'm coming back for him!"

Oh come on and man up. I wouldn't expect anything less if i was doing something like this. People will say this kind of stuff for pretty much anything. I got death threats when I worked at a crappy college radio station.

Animals are conscious beings. Just because they're tasty and you're ignorant doesn't mean that they're some kind of meat robot. They've each got moods, personalities, memories. Even hive insects of exceedingly uniform nature, like ants, have some variations and learn by experience.

So, they do indeed have a valid perspective of what hunting is like from their end. The only hunters I respect in the day of industrial slaughter houses and high powered rifles are sniper scouts, or "hunters of gunmen" as they dub themselves.

Anyone else is cheating because animals can't shoot back.

Those rhinos are a vengeful lot, aren't they?
 
2014-01-19 05:38:41 PM
Rhinos don't live forever folks. After they reach a certain age they do not procreate. $350K dedicated to saving the rest of the gene pool versus $0K if the animal just keels over and dies.

Bloodninja: Ok baby, we got to hurry, I don't know how long I can keep it ready for you.
j_gurli13: thats ok. ok i'm a japanese schoolgirl, what r u.
Bloodninja: A Rhinocerus. Well, hung like one, thats for sure.

Bloodninja: I stomp the ground, and snort, to alert you that you are in my breeding territory.
j_gurli13: haha, ok, u know that turns me on.
j_gurli13: i start unbuttoning ur shirt.
Bloodninja: Rhinoceruses don't wear shirts.
j_gurli13: No, ur not really a Rhinocerus silly, it's just part of the game.
Bloodninja: Rhinoceruses don't play games. They f**king charge your ass.
j_gurli13: stop, cmon be serious.
Bloodninja: It doesn't get any more serious than a Rhinocerus about to charge your ass.
Bloodninja: I stomp my feet, the dust stirs around my tough skinned feet.
j_gurli13: thats it.
Bloodninja: Nostrils flaring, I lower my head. My horn, like some phallic symbol of my potent virility, is the last thing you see as skulls collide and mine remains the victor. You are now a bloody red ragdoll suspended in the air on my mighty horn.
Bloodninja: F**k am I hard now.

wow, dude.


My grandfather served in North Africa in World War II.  A few decades after the war, he took a trip back to see his old battlefields, and decided to do a tour of the whole continent, including a safari.

He had the opportunity to shoot a rhino.  Because they were rarely hunted by humans in that region (I don't recall where this was exactly), it wasn't scared of him, or his hunting party.  It just stared at him, casually grazing.  It didn't movie, it didn't threaten to charge.  It just stood there, staring and chewing.

He refused to shoot it, stating it would be "about as sporting as shooting a parked mini-van."

doglover: So, they do indeed have a valid perspective of what hunting is like from their end. The only hunters I respect in the day of industrial slaughter houses and high powered rifles are sniper scouts, or "hunters of gunmen" as they dub themselves.


As someone who eats meat, I'm perfectly fine with "ethical hunting."  That is, hunting overpopulated (or at least not underpopulated) animals that would otherwise starve and eating and/or donating the meat.  A deer that gets killed in the wild has a much better life than a cow in a factory farm.  There is not really a "good death" in nature.  Animals usually die of starvation or getting eaten by other animals.  Being put down by a skilled hunter is probably one of the cleaner deaths possible for wild animals.  True fair chase deer stalking is actually very difficult and physically taxing.

The rhino is endangered and I seriously doubt this guy is planning to eat it, or that it will be a fair chase scenario.  I imagine he'll be driven by a guide in one of those safari jeeps, get relatively close, the rhino will be like "Ehh, whatever" because he's used to people in jeeps, and the guy will just shoot him.  That's a farking shiatty, cowardly thing to do.

You may personally be opposed to all types of hunting, but let's at least separate the reasonable from the ridiculous.
 
2014-01-19 06:55:41 PM
Opposed to is a strong word. Nature is the process by which overwhelming force exploits weakness relentlessly. Can't blame the orb spider that the fly is just a defenseless juice pack on wings.

But humans don't have to hunt, and when they do they don't have to hunt endangered animals. Especially not megafauna. Megafauna serve a vital role in the food chain. Their feces are an important resource to all many of autotrophs and insects, which are the foundation of the whole chain. By killing off a single rhino, you've eliminated years of fertilizer leading to lower nutrition, less seed migration, fewer flies, and if they're around the dung beetles aren't gonna be happy. Everyone suffers.

Normally, this wouln't be a problem. But we're 10,000 years into a bad case of humans. Rhino levels are at an all time low and many megafauna species are extinct worldwide. Shooting a single rhino at this point is like punching a guy in the ICU in his arm. It might not kill him, might not even hurt him, but it's ain't gonna help nobody.

If you want to hunt, get a machette and go clear out the pythons from the Everglades. Pile the nutria to the moon. Get an underwater submersible and use it to spear every asian carp near the great lakes. But don't shoot a rhino. Every rhino is helping. Want to experience one? Bring a camera, not a rifle.

Meh, the younger rhinos get the protection they need.  The conservationists get a ton of money to further conservation efforts.  The rich asshole gets an opportunity to be a rich asshole.

Sounds to me like everybody wins.

doglover:

I feel like that was in response to me.  I stated clearly that I was against rhino hunting but didn't have a problem with hunting overpopulated animals.  I don't disagree with a lot of what you're saying, but telling me rhino hunting is bad after what I said makes it look like I advocate rhino hunting.
 
2014-01-19 07:27:10 PM
From what I understand this individual is an asshole and probably past his reproductive prime and endangers others in the community and unsuited to live in peace with others.

Not so sure about the Rhino tho.

His name was posted on Facebook and then picked up by websites that publicized his involvement in the auction.

Cross out "black rhino" and write in "4chan" on the permit.  See if the cops notice.

No. If you have enough brains to make the 350k + 20k to get to Africa and stay there, you have a lawyer who can write up a real statement.

No, no no no... Like, a big sweaty fireman carries you out of a burning building, lays you on the sidewalk, and you think, "Yeah, okay, he's gonna give me mouth to mouth." But instead, he just starts choking the shiat out of you, and the last sensation that you feel before you die is he is squeezing your throat so hard that a big, wet, blob of drool drips off his teeth and just "flurr", falls right onto your popped out eyeball...

This could be the basis of the action film franchise of the 21st Century.  We got this rugged man of action looking kill himself one of nature's most elusive animals.  Word gets out and PETA forms a team of ninja assassins who stalk the hunter over seven continents.  Will he emerge the ultimate prey and ultimate victor or will he meet a grisly end?  The only way out is ahead.  I'm thinking Stathan as the lead.  Give it the working title Hunter2Hunted.  Get me Weinstein on the horn, stat.  We gotta do lunch.

Heh...ahh customer service. I also got them when I worked at a stores credit card department. I always wondered what people thought was going to happen? Oh sorry sir, I know that you're maxed out on your credit line but since you said you were going to come down here and "shoot me in the parking lot" it's been increased by 5,000 dollars. Enjoy the new bedroom set and have a great day!
