Do you not realize just how much money is involved here? Or how high the influence goes? This sort of thing will not be solved by "cleaning them out".


Governments cannot make and issue orders to these spec ops without going through debates in the political chambers. Ollie North tried to run some covert ops and he was basically "hanged to dry" in the political circles.

These groups have to be formed by someone very resourceful like Soros and other with good connections and monetary backing. Hope someone powerful folks sponsor such efforts. I have much belief in the "private enterprise" and several examples of such efficient efforts have been seen around the world.

There is one thing worse than a white male trophy hunter, a female trophy hunter that is defiant of all public opinion so as to give the entire internet the finger.
Sure go ahead and stir up the hornets nest, see if you don't get stung.

You know what I am calling it right now, people like that, deserve whatever outraged citizens of the world send her way.
At least the dentist went into hiding and said sorry.



Some people not only have no morality they want the whole world to know about it too, by bragging about it.

A true idiot.

Sadly all the outrage is not going to help all those magnificent creatures that were killed for nothing but a desire to kill.
It is also mere noise while on the bigger picture many more animals suffer at the hands of humans.
But Sammie is quite an example of the human insensitivity for love and life.
Even citing from the bible,.. a christian with a desire to kill.

She is such an ignorant fool, we know how God felt about another mighty hunter.... his name was Nimrod.

Evil idiocy is the worst kind, and a blight on humanity.

Evil Dastardly are those who go an kill a helpless and defenseless animal who is harming no body.

Evil Dastardly are those who sit in power circles and do nothing about it.

Be mean to a human and God will punish once, Be mean to an animal and God will punish 5 times.

In this age of digital electronics and advanced simulators, silicon valley should set about making hunting simulation chambers where "cowardly low self esteemed rejects" can go a fulfill their desires to hunt and make trophies.

These simulators can offer modules of much higher degrees of difficulty so that the low self esteems can come about feeling good about something other than killing an innocent animal. A certificate or trophy can be issued to those who performed well and would be happy to exhibit in their abodes to stroke their ego and brag.

Excellent points and I entirely support your sentiment. BUT. As humans we have the capacity to consider all creations, respect them, and take care of them, and ostracize those in some way, who place no value on them and who are unjustly cruel to them. We can do it all, and we should.

Well, as much as I have no use for trophy hunting, it seems to me we have bigger "fish to fry" as a people. However, this story is popping up on headlines all over the western world, it has garnered (26) pages of sentiment here on ATS even, yet there is nary a mention of these other stories in the headlines.

It's about priorities; it seems a shame people don't rally behind issues which affect hundreds (thousands even) of human lives with the same conviction, venom and zeal they do for a single lion...or a single criminal thug on the streets of St. Louis.

I know. But we do give those topics attention also. This was just a particularly heinous event. It does become depressing at times when we discuss and discuss, while knowing there is not a damn thing we can do about it -- for those of us who care enough to notice.

Long Beach Officials to Consider Trapping, Killing Aggressive Coyotes

We're lucky we don't have lions as our "neighbors". They do in Zimbabwe.

Please do not exaggerate and twist facts to make a case for illegal hunting in Africa.

There are no lions, tigers or wolves selling soda pop in kiosks in the African towns.

On the contrary, few friends went to safari near Zambia and Zimbabwe border and even after driving around for 4 hours all they could encounter were deers, chimps and some wild cows.

It seems there are no lions or tigers or Rhinos and other exotics found in safaris easily.

This is just too cruel, the dentist deserves the flak he is getting

So, you don't think some people in Africa share the same space as wild animals?

You don't think some people in Africa fear their children will be harmed by wild animals.

Locals in Africa feel the same way about lions as locals in America feel about wild life in their area.

Well all the public outrage has moved things in the right direction, all major american airlines will no longer transport trophy animals. And America is reviewing to put the African lion on the endangered list, this would then stop any rich private charters, at least it would be totally illegal. And later if an American decided to post a picture of them standing over a dead lion they had just shot, they would be in legal troubles.

Keep dreaming. The reality is:



Last week, the cargo division of South Africa's national carrier, SAA, lifted an embargo that had been in place since April on the transport of legally acquired hunting trophies of African lion and elephant, rhinoceros and tiger. reuters


If you want to change things then put pressure on the governments that legalize the hunting to protect he species, but that isn't happening. Trying to shame the hunters, well that is happening, but they don't care.

Don't despair SA Airways, via MSM the word will get around and then SAA sales will suffer immensely.

I will not travel via SAA and will make sure to let friends and contacts know about the change in policy so they do not travel either.

Cool, but may I ask just how often you used to fly with SAA before this?

Lead with emotion not realty.

Hunting is an industry. Kinda like shipping jobs over seas stopping it.

The change needs to be in regulations and guaranteed persentage of fees to legitimate conservation programs.
