An Italian vet who courted controversy by sharing photos of animals he hunted on social media, has died after falling into a ravine while shooting wild birds.

Luciano Ponzetto received death threats last year after he posed in pictures next to his trophy kills of lions and other wild animals which he posted online.

He had pledged to take legal action against those who had threatened violence against him and argued that being a vet was “not incompatible with hunting, either morally or professionally”.

The vet died after he slipped on a sheet of ice and fell 100ft down a ravine at Colle delle Oche near Turin during a wild bird hunt, The Sun reported.

Not much to say other than there is some justice in the world...

The Sun version.

Do you eat meat? Meat killed in some slaughterhouse, perhaps?

No hostility. Just asking.

Happily - I love meat. There's a big difference between hunting for food and hunting for "sport" though.

Show me an animal who hunts for pure amusement, or kill.. Wasted energy is not a gift in nature

Except neither you or I are hunting for the meat on our hamburgers, are we? In fact, nobody is. Because they are born and raised to be our food. It's their lot in life to face their execution like the frightened cattle they are when they are killed.

Point I'm trying to make is...

Which animal's suffering is greater, and how come?

Why is this vet's unfortunate death "justice" because (oh my) he hunted lions?

When will the justice come for, what should arguably be more morally offensive, those of us who support inhumane industries to feed our lust for meat?

Regular cats kill for no reason.

Dogs. Ever see one kill a chicken?

Cats? Never seen a cat toy with a caught bird or mouse?

I bet the lion meat never went to waste considering it's usually donated.

That's valid to a point.... but killing for a (perhaps unnecessary) necessity isn't the same as killing to quench one's bloodlust.

If it is a question of morality surely the methods of execution and treatment of the prey is as relevant as the reasons for the killing.

Just saying.

Also, the lion meat unlikely went to waste...

You asked for animals other than humans that hunts or kills for amusement.

They aren't as uncommon as you might think...

Dogs and cats are very common and came to mind first.

Ive eaten lion. Africans probably will negate your comment, almost every kill poached or legal will be used by locals. Tropy hunters often dont want the meat. The skins are prepared locally. So the meat is almost always used... lion is valuable in all parts from africa east.. chinese medicine... folklore...
