Being born in Zambia 300 miles to the north of Zimbabwe all I can say is that this dentist chap has totally let the side down for us Americans …. A pretty sad tale this is ….

He should have his nuts cut off, and then sent to an ISIS area with just the Bow, no Arrows.

From the story on TV I see two issues:

1. Should hunting be allowed in general? I believe if a species is not endangered and the animal will be used after the kill then hunting is acceptable.

2. Is the TV reporter correct in that local people lured the lion from a “no hunt” preserve to an area where hunting is allowed? If so, then whoever knew about the lion being lured out should be hunted down (pun intended) and punished.

I don’t have enough facts and I don’t necessary believe what the news media reports to form a definite conclusion about this specific incident. I will say that IMHO lions are magnificent creatures that God created and the picture of this one is magnificent!

I could show a picture of a buck deer, or a fish, or a pheasant and ask the same question. Its only because of your image of this animal you feel this way. If you were a Zebra or a Wildebeast I suggest you would be thanking that guy.

Let me preface by saying I’m neither in favor of hunting lions, nor do I think a bow and arrow is the most humane way to hunt, but I have no moral authority to call someone names, call for the destruction of their livelihood, or their maiming and dismemberment. Does it make you feel better, or what?

However disgusted I am at the vitriol and hatred being directed toward this guy, I’m not surprised either.This the typical reaction of anti-anything people this day of supposed “tolerance” and diversity. If killing a lion with a spear and stabbing him in the heart was a rite of passage for some African tribe I suggest the public would be much more accepting or even honoring it.

So is it about killing a lion with an arrow, or is it about a wealthy dentist from the US paying $50,000 to “hunt down an innocent victim?”

I submit most of the people spewing forth this hate-talk are not anti-hunting, nor lion lovers, nor African game conservation. No, they are just part of the feeding frenzy because pointing our fingers in unison at something we’ve deemed evil makes us feel good.

This is the world we live in now. People are tried, found guilty and judged by the court of public opinion. In the process, they get personally smeared and visciously attacked by people who probably don’t give a rats ass about the issue, and who don’t know the person nor all the facts.

If made the statement to you guys that
“Lion killer” is ironic coming from people who kill trees and built things with their body parts…….”

would you call me a kook or want to just want to cut my nuts off?

So far the previous post is the only one that has any reasonable thinking behind it.

I feel a lot more sorry for that dentist than the lion!

The guy is despicable. If the story is correct; luring the lion out of the park with a fresh kill, putting an arrow in him and then letting it suffer for 40 hours before finally killing it with a firearm is the lowest form of “sportsmanship”. Hope it makes his di#k feel bigger.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I for one would be the very last person to have any sympathy for the shooter. I won’t insult all of the responsible hunters out there by calling this prick a hunter. Let the investigation by the local authorities conclude and then see what happens. But my bet is that the guy will walk, since” money talks and bulls**t walks”.

The guy should be prosecuted. What was done is clearly wrong. I have absolutely nothing against true hunting but this was something entirely different.

The comments about maiming and such for this guy are uncalled for.

I wish people would get this upset about the murders and crimes in the US. There are cities where innocents are shot by stray bullets almost every day and this does not get the same reaction as we are so used to it.

If he was looking to fulfill his passion of travelling to far away lands to hunt powerful and exotic animals, perhaps he should have taken his bow to Isla Sorna to hunt T-Rex….talk about a rush.

In all seriousness, I’m not against hunting altogether, but I don’t know about this situation, it’s pretty rough. It’s not like he was planning on feeding his family with some good ol lion meat. Could you imagine if more people shared this same hobby? Imagine if the same number of people who called woodworking a hobby also dabbled in the sport of taking exotic animals lives in countries and continents which they had no reason being in the first place, other than to harvest these animals.

Whoever is to blame for the location of the shooting or the misidentification of the animal, does this man really need to be shooting lions in Africa in the first place?

We know for sure the story has been sensationalized by the media. That is probably all that is really known for sure.
What are the real facts?

Where do you draw the line? What about killing a tree to make lumber?

Totally agree with Topamax. The media is biased against hunting. Let’s get the whole story before you form a lynch mob!!!

Topamax +1, everytime I buy wood I think about the tree that had to be killed to satisfy my woodworking need. But then I buy the wood. Arsonist forest fires really bother me. Exporting our walnut and maple bothers me.

Killing lions not only bothers me but I cannot understand it.
