Ann-Kathrin Freude of Austrian environmental group VGT told the BBC that as far as they were aware the shooting of Arthur had produced the highest score ever recorded. "It is a really great trophy to get one of these iconic animals - it's like a good wine."

"We don't have a personal problem with the prince," Gabriel Paun of Environmental group Agent Green told the BBC. "We believe the hunting association was meeting his needs."


Are these environmental groups like the Exxon funded "Campaign for Real Air and Peace"?

You might be surprised.

Ducks Unlimited is funded in large part by hunters.  You can't shoot ducks if there are no ducks.

I knew a bear named Yogi, I guess you could say he was a picnic fiend,
I saw him in a woodland clearing masturbating with a steel canteen...

article: 'why a male bear had been shot and that poaching was one of the suspicions of the case.
As females are far smaller than Arthur, activists believe the older alpha male was deliberately targeted for his trophy value of 592.8 points out of a possible maximum 600.'

No one can claim trophy points for an illegally shot animal.
If the male was poached for body parts, those missing items would be obvious.

Yes for the first, barring illegal shenanigans, but poaching is simply the act of illegally killing animals purposefully on someone else's property.  You don't have to do anything with the body at all, you could just shoot it and walk away.  You're still poaching.  Always been like that, because it's considered a theft from the owner of the land, the animals are their resources.  By killing one of those resources, you've taken it's value from that owner - be that a private individual or a country/state/etc.  Regardless of what you do with it afterward.

Prince (Rogers Nelson) was a vegan. So while I am sure he never hunted, if he had, he would have been the funkiest hunter that ever was or ever will be.
