And something like that can go both ways.

If you had a felony for illegal hunting, would you risk another one?


Here in the states No way. But out in the middle of nowhere in the African Bush, he might assume he's safe from such things.

Why not? I know I'm not standing up to some guides about that... You think they are going to risk their freedom for some dentist from minesota? Dentists from minesota have accidents all the time.. Especially in the African outback.

I only just saw you edited your post, I replied to the first post which was understandably ludicrous.

And I don't have to answer that, you should be asking the dentist that question not me. And Im prettttttty sure he didn't give a crap. Now you guys are making him out to be a victim of tour operators forcing him to make the kill. LOL

Whatever gets you guys through the night.

Now you're just be silly, I'm not going to answer that kind of post grim, come on...


Well, I don't know what I would have done about the collar. To a certain degree I would expect the guys I forked 50K over to know what to do, but I certainly wouldn't make them my enemy.

Either he knew they were shady or he didn't and in either case there is reason to leave it to them. If I had a good impression of them I would expect them to do the right thing if I didn't I would probably fear my own outcome if I pushed it.


Asking what you would do in such a position doesn't seem like a silly question.

I'm just saying that's a possibility. Hang him by his nuts if did it but this is Africa we are talking about, A WHOLE LOTTA IFS in Africa.

Does anyone have links to updated statements? I can't find anything passed the original stuff spreading like wild fire.

sorry but i have not read every message on this post cause i don,t believe i have to, paying to shoot a lion is wrong in every sense of the word.

i mean why would you even want to just for sport? crazy if you ask me,sure the dentist wouldn,t like it if we thought lets just track dentists down and shoot them for fun? i hope he pays for his stupid actions.

For all those who want something juicy.

It's entitled: "What can Walter Palmer be charged with?" ---- so read the whole article.



Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, allegedly bribed park officials with $55,000 to hunt down and kill Cecil the Lion at Hwange National Park. Cecil was found beheaded and skinned on the outskirts of the Hwange national park, authorities said. The hunt occurred around July 6.

unreal. What a total plonker.......theres better ways to make yourself feel good,like donating the money he spent to kill an animal he had no right to kill to sick children or homeless or....something worthwhile.
Guys like this are the ones who need to be given a team stomping....with lionskin boots maybe?

Maybe you should read every post in this thread before you go blabbering on.

Watch this too. youtu.be...

This Louie Theroux documentary on the subject is perfect for all this. He pulls no punches. He doesn't pander to the hunters at all. It's very pro animal slanted and in the end the math doesn't lie.

Well outside of your socialist utopic idea of society, here in reality people are allowed to have fun, hunting is very very fun to some people, not all but some, and it's as natural of an act as you can get.

I don't disagree that people should donate more and help more but that's not what all money should go towards.

And Walter Palmer had a sexual harassment case by a former employee that was settled out of court.

Wonder what else I can find.

In my opinion the only worthy trophy hunters are the nature photographers who provide those of us who are unable to visit these places ourselves, a close up look of all the amazing creatures on this planet through their photos and videos.

"THEY FUQQING CHOP IT ALL DOWN AND BURN IT OR KILL IT AND EAT IT!"

It's the dollar value that drives the locals to help with the conservation efforts..

@hiddenNZ. .... Matey.... NZ is like the trophy hunting capital of the world...and NZ's animals are much better for it... Check out this Louie Theroux doc on this topic and get back to me. Ask a local official in NZ how important trophy hunting money is for NZ's economy, il bet it's more then 50% of the tourist dollars and a good chunk of the GDP..

It totally makes sense.

I'm sure not giving up my meat. And most people aren't. I think most people don't even think about how their meat gets on their plate.

They raise healthy animals, let them live free, and basically sell them for slaughter. No different then 4H. Except how the animal is killed.

NZ has a couple goats and sheep. That's what a wapiti is isn't it? There's 4 main ones that people hunt but I don't remember what their names were.

It's a bbc documentary that explains how these animals get protected based on the dollar amount on the,

I never thought about it like that but it totally is just an adventurous version of a 4H auction.

Some of these hunts do seem way to ez for me but that's me, I'm a seasoned hunter, what about first timers and handicapped people that like to hunt? In the end it's really the most natural way to get your meat and ease of killing shouldn't be looked down upon I reckon, it's nicer to the animals really. If we make it too much of a challenge you run the risk of bad shots and hurt animals.. No one wants that.
