The kind of makes me laugh at all the moron who were so upset with that dentist.

Quote:
Zimbabwe’s largest wildlife reserve has warned it may have to cull 200 lions to deal with a population explosion triggered by the international fury over the death of Cecil last year.

Bubye Valley Conservancy, whose owners include Charles Davy, father of Prince Harry’s former girlfriend Chelsy, now has more than 500 lions, the most in the country’s dwindling wildlife areas.

But they have been destroying populations of antelope, giraffe, cheetah, leopards and wild dogs after the driest summer on record kept grasses low, making them prime targets.
The situation has been blamed on ‘the Cecil effect’ that resulted from the killing of Cecil the lion, a prized resident of Hwange National Park who was shot dead by U.S. dentist Walter Palmer.

Such was the worldwide outcry, Palmer was forced into hiding for months and other big-game hunters have feared receiving the same treatment if they went to Zimbabwe.
Falling oil prices have also caused a drop in the number of hunters from U.S. states such as Texas, it was reported by the National Post.

Staff at Bubye, which spans some 850,000 acres, say the population has become unsustainable and may be forced to kill 200 lions to keep it under control.

But they have launched an appeal for other wildlife sanctuaries or institutions to take them first to prevent that happening.
Blondie Leathem, general manager of Bubye Valley Conservancy, said: ‘I wish we could give about 200 of our lions away to ease the overpopulation.

‘If anyone knows of a suitable habitat for them where they will not land up in human conflict, or in wildlife areas where they will not be beaten up because of existing prides, please let us know and help us raise the money to move them.’

Bubye found itself at the centre of controversy last month after it emerged it planned to stage a raffle with the chance to kill a lion as first prize.

Participants were offered the chance to ‘win a lion’ on its website, selling 100 raffle tickets at $1,500 (£1,015) each, sparking condemnation from campaigners.

The raffle was cancelled after protests from campaigners.

If there are so many why did they lure an aged lion from the national park?

Much of the furor was over the lion being lured from the park and the fact he was shot with an arrow and suffered for 40 hours.

Also, you might want to correct your plural/singular matching. Did you mean to say “this”?

I don’t spell, type, do grammar, punctuation well. I’m not going to fret over it. You can if you want I don’t really care. The intelligent people will figure it out.

I wasn’t there so I don’t a have clue. I’m going to jump to any conclusions based solely on the Media and all the know it all’s on the internet.

I take it “intelligent” is based on agreeing with you and not on an objective metric like spelling, grammar, or being able to communicate what you mean.

You seem to be quite the “know it all” on the internet, and that is legal, but don’t throw around intelligent when your posts seem to lack even a 5th grader’s communication skills.

A sense of humor is, simply put, the ability to be amused. Most people have one, and are able to laugh at jokes, and a variety of humorous situations.

People with a well-developed sense of humor appear to be happier in psychological studies, and some are healthier as well, suggesting that it may just be good for you.

For some people, this can be very awkward, as it plays a vital role in human interactions.
People without one may find themselves belittled, mocked, or treated as stupid, leading to anxiety and depression.

You should get one so that your not so angry. ;)

What’s up with you 2 trolls? I post an informative article and you what to turn it in to a bashing thread.

jbay, I have a sense of humor. I laugh my A** off every time I think about you following me around LJ’s trolling me ever since I call you a “jerk”. That I am very amused at.

Edit to add

Where the other other troll “Dan’um Style”, he usually shows up in my post to toll me too.

The article isn’t the problem just your attempt at inciting trouble. Go back and read your comment and think about if you were trying to cause trouble. I suspect you were.

Also, one doesn’t need to follow others around since your threads (under all guises) pop up in the list of forums, as you know.
