I'm so enraged right now. I know it was legal and all but what bugs me is that she enjoys killing these animals and what worst of it all, she does it for pure sport. I can support the animal killing for food but killing a animal for sport is wrong!

If anyone going to kill a animal. They should respect the animal and don't take there life for granted to become popular or try to get a tv show.


I hate situations like this.

Update: I stated i SUPPORT KILLING OF A ANIMAL IN CASES OF FOOD.I'm saying killing a animal for pure enjoyment/popularity and sport is wrong.

update2: People seem to not read "i support killing of a animal in cases of food. Hunters i know kill animals for food, population control, and sport combined ( i came from a long line of hunters). I hate killing a animal purely on sports for trophies (meaning they won't eat or do anything with the corpse. They would throw it out). Only the sport side i hate, i don't hate hunters or people killing animals what i stated before (except sport side).

Where does it say she kills endangered animals?!!?

The only endangered animal she had a picture with was the Rhino and it was just tranquilized so the vet could draw blood.

The hunts are legal, the money from the tags goes to help keep the preserves running and the meat does not go to waste and one animal can feed a whole village of hungry people.

There is nothing sick or depraved about this story.

A person doing what they enjoy, helping overall keep the preserves running, and feeding people who are hungry.

Another instance of people being offended because someone else is doing something THEY don't think is right.

There are people who complain when I go out and kill an elk every year, they'll honk and flip me off for it while on their way to the grocery store to buy a pack of pork chops??????

It stated under the first picture of a white lion "Conserving by killing? 19-year-old Texas cheerleader Kendall Jones really likes to kill rare animals in Africa."

"Jones's photos show her posing with bagged zebras, hugging a dead leopard, and smiling beside elephants she's killed."

Read my main post again. " what bugs me is that she enjoys killing these animals and what worst of it all, she does it for pure sport. [I can support the animal killing for food] but killing a animal for sport is wrong! "

Yes, the title of this thread seems to go nowhere.

In the first linked article she talks about killing an endangered white rhino with a .416 rifle

Personally I'm not a big supporter of her rationale for hunting these guys in Africa. However, the fact that all the meat seems to be going to the locals I'm it going to complain too much. Besides, if we were to place blame or anger it should be with the governments who issue her the permits to kill these animals not with a teenage girl who is simply following inner fathers footsteps.

What gets me about this is the obvious pride she has at this. The pride of the privileged. She had enough money to vacation over there and pay for the safari and stuff. Then she had enough ability to heft a gun and point it at large targets and hit those targets. Then??? Brag about it. Was she ever in danger? No. Were these animals running away. Probably not. Were they hiding in the brush? Probably not.

No. she was on a safari and was taken to where the animals were, had them pointed out to her and she then used them as target practice. She was not hunting, she was in an expensive shooting gallery. Then rather than a stuffed teddy, she got a different prize.

Should she want to have a feeling of accomplishment, why not learn to surf, and then try a big one at Mavericks.
That I would applaud. No, her pride shows her to be nothing more than a darling daughter of privilege.

Why single this one girl out that has the love of hunting? Why not speak for all hunters?

Because this was not hunting. It was slaughter. She might as well have gone to a slaughterhouse and banged a couple of old cows over the head.

Most hunting is slaughter for enjoyment and popularity, nothing more.

Until I saw the pictures, I wasn't upset. I don't hate on hunters. But... her photos and poses with her victims look purely evil and sadistic. The photos remind me of the ones from Gitmo where they were posing the prisoners naked or the pics of soldiers pissing on dead villagers.

I don't care what I killed... I'm not going to cuddle with it and smile like Pennywise from IT while getting my photo taken. Sadism, man... that chick is twisted.

Where did the meat go? Did she mount the animal's head in her trophy room? Where is the reality here?

If thats all that hunting is then it is nothing more than self indulgent carnage and not hunting.

Hunting has a proud history of necessity. Hunting for survival. That it has been turned into a sport(????) is, for me, a sad thing.

I said 'most' not all, don't get on the wrong stick.

Let me veer this discussion to men that poach endangered animal parts for the Chinese market...or would this be considred thread drift?

I never seen a hunter kill a deer or any animal for pure sport (meaning they won't do anything with the corpse then have it stuff as a trophy) without seeking to eat it.

We are not discussing that point we are discussing singling out one female hunter where the facts of her actions are sketchy.
