Trophy hunters should be given a 5  second head start, then shot in the back.

Nah just make em prove what an alpha male they are.

The animal comes into the fight with nothing more than what he was born with.

Let jungle jim do the same.
If he can kill the animal while naked and barehanded, he keeps the trophy.

If the animal wins, the animal gets a free meal.

This again eh?   After some thought it occurs to me these folks that post these pics to social media likely have a circle of friends that appreciate the pics or at worst criticize them about what they have done.  The problem begins when a pic slowly spreads  outward from the hunter's circle of friends to his friends friends and onward.   Its then that the feces hit the ventilator unit.

That said trophy hunting should be banned.

Imagine you're an elephant.   You're prancing along. You get thirsty. You spot a little brook. You put your little elephant lips down to the cool, clear water. BAM! A farkin' bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask you: Would you give a fark what kind of pants the son of a biatch who shot you was wearing?!"

And if the animal isn't a carnivore, hook it up with its favorite dish.
In this case, let him threaten the babies in front of the herds females.

I have a bunch of friends that hunt and I pretty much tell them a similar thing. How is it a challenge if the animal cannot shoot back, the animal does not know the game you are playing so how is it fair.

Having known a few trophy hunters, my experience with them is that they are generally borderline sociopaths or narcissists. There is usually something very off about them that makes me pay close attention to what they are doing and how close they are to me. I have yet to meet one who doesn't produce this reaction. 

The worst one I ever met was not so much of a big game hunter. He was a cougar/cat hunter, and he was a piece of shiat of a human being.

Amazing, you fly thousands of miles, travel into the bush with a firearm that could blow a fist sized hole in a concrete wall, antagonize one of the resident animals living there that's just  trying to get through its day, piss it off enough that it acts in a completely reasonable manner considering the circumstances, then you take it's life away, and you're the victim??

Cheating is the gift man gives himself.

But seriously, let's not conflate the poor people with a freezer of venison with some egotistical shiat head that wants to bag an elephant just for the fark of it.

If... by some odd chance it was charging and it was self defense... just don't waste it.

My brother just came back from his vacation in Kenya. While he was there, he fed a giraffe, skritched a rhino (he said he wanted to make the rhino his emotional support animal because it was that tame and friendly), and played with some baby elephants. He's going back next year.
Are those animals going to be still alive when he goes back?

They aren't.  They are mature females, and if you look at the bullet wound on the one you can see, it's right in the forehead, which is where you shoot a charging elephant.  Otherwise you want to shoot them through the heart, because elephant skulls are pretty thick.  A brain shot it is a kind of last-resort sort of thing.

Also, you can tell this is in a UK newspaper by the way they capitalize the word "gun", as if it's some kind of evil thing in an of itself:

A GUN-toting trophy hunter sparked outrage by posing with two young elephants slaughtered on a sick safari.

Elephants aren't pigs, deer, wolves, or cows. They're one of the few species on this planet with spindle neurons, which we are finding has a close correlation to self-awareness. Sentience. They're only found in elephants, great apes, dolphins, some whale species, and humans. Creatures with spindle neurons have all tested with varying degrees of self-awareness. They're not just dumb animals.

Kill all the goats, pigs, sharks, rats, emus, deer, rabbits, cows, marmots, badgers, or kangaroos that you want. Well, I mean, don't-- But if you just have to kill animals to feel like a big man, kill those animals. When you kill elephants, whales, dolphins, gorillas, chimpanzees, or orangutans there's a good ethical, philosophical, and moral argument for it being murder, considering we recognize murder as the extinguishing of a sentient life.

Elephants have friends. They have families that they recognize and-- as far as we can determine-- love in the same we we recognize and love our own. Elephants have risked their own lives to save creatures they see as weaker or disadvantaged-- Including humans. Elephants remember old friends and allies. They mourn their dead in much the same way we do. Death means something to them aside from just pain; They seem to understand its finality and feel the loss.

So this guy? He's a murdering piece of shiat.

Sustenance hunting, I'm fine with. Hunting to control population and preserve ecosystems (that need preservation because of human actions), okay.

This crap? Never okay. I doubt juvenile elephants were charging anything with provocation. If these morons are so obsessed with proving their masculinity drop them off in a tiger preserve in India. Or Admiralty Island (off of Juno. Has more brown bears than the entirety of the lower 48), and let them figure it out). Ever read stories about tigers? People say they will be 10ft away from them and have no idea they are there. It's horrifying.

Hunting your food has many benefits. One of the biggest being you understand for you to live something has to die. This separation of people and their food source is creating issues. 

Additionally it gives you organic GMO free range grass fed food which has survived all the challenges in the wild. Meaning you arent eating meat kept alive with antibiotics. 

That said shooting elephants is killing for fun. Not a fan of that at all

You're right, but it's not our place to do that. Elephants will sort it out themselves. They're not stupid. Nature isn't stupid. Nature doesn't need humans to cull the old animals, just as humans don't need asshole versions of elephants wandering into nursing homes and trampling old people so younger people can take over.

And clearly these were not old bulls, anyway. This guy's a major asshole.

Trophy hunters are scum.

Jines claimed his critics did not know the "full story".
He told CBS 46 the elephants "were shot in self-defence, in an unprovoked charge and both elephants were fully mature cows, not juveniles."


That is clearly a young elephant.

Jines also said that the animals were shot in full compliance with laws and regulations in both Zimbabwe and the US.

"But there's no law. If it's such a bad thing, why isn't there a law against it? People are free to do what they want, it's what made this country great, and me rich. We don't make laws against everything--we have freedoms. If it's legal, I'm perfectly right to shoot those elephants right in the face, just for my own jollies. There's no law against it."

And that's why conservatives need so much control over everything--because they know in their hearts that they have no control over themselves, and that everything will be trashed if they don't stop it. Perfect projection.
