Killing endangered animals is stupid and irresponsible, no matter how hot the dumb broad may be. It has nothing to do with Gentlemen things. Seriously, it's like making a video of how to fry a bald eagle egg and submitting it to the food network.
Actually, population control of even endangered species is a tool of game management for the betterment of the herd. A permit was even sold recently for a very endangered black rhino which is shocking and offensive to those who bitterly cling to their feel-good ignorance.
In reality, this rhino was a post-breeding male who is not going to be making any more little baby rhinos to continue the species. Ever. He was territorial and cock blocking younger males who had that goal in mind. Removing this one endangered animal took away a barrier to an increase in the total population of black rhinos. Plus, the sale of the license generated --hundreds of thousands-- of dollars to protect endangered species.
Don't believe everything you are told on MSNBC.
African big game hunters like this young lady are not parachuting in from Blackwater Apache helicopters piloted in the dead of night by Dick Cheney to blindly machine gun into herds of endangered animals. They are paying big money to go on these safari hunts for the privilege of pulling the trigger on animals selected by game managers as needing to be removed from the population. Their hunting fees are a major source of funds to support wildlife management (as they are in the US as well), and the usable meat goes to feed needy locals. The hunter returns home with memories of the adventure and the cape.

Peed my pants.....
That last paragraph is the best thing I've read all day.
"hot dumb broad"
Awww, but endangered food tastes the best.
It's hilarious to me that the activist "I love animals" crowd should be the first to respond to this Mint. They'd rather see herds of starving elk (or name your beast) that allow them to be kept at a manageable population level. These are the same people who trust Big Government with their health care but refuse to believe their wildlife management programs could possibly be correct.
The entire African country of Namibia is based on using the first world hunter to help manage their animal populations (while using locals to finish the culling for their own food stores) and they seem to have the most thriving and diverse (always cool to throw in a Lefty buzzword when talking to them) wildlife populations in Africa. Man, I'd love to visit Etosha National Park!!
I'm not a hunter, but hunting has been a gentlemanly pursuit for a long time. If you read the girl's own words, she isn't hunting any endangered animals, but is engaging in the same kind of population control hunting that is used in the US. http://www.cleburnetimesreview.com/features/x1736690503/Cleburne-hunter-responds-to-Facebook-reactions?zc_p
White Rhino's are threatened, my mistake. If they are threatened then their population does not need to be controlled. I love hunting but only for animals that are over-populated like deer and pig.
Oh, that isn't what I meant. If you read her interview, she said she didn't hunt a white rhino, she helped tranquilize and tag a white rhino as part of a wildlife study. The tacked article has an incorrect caption.
I find the problems people have with this girls Facebook profile to be a joke, if you do not like it, do not look at it. Also it is not as if she poached these animals or is some kind of idle hunter "just out for a kill". These hunts are expensive and benefit the locals in the area they occur.
"Ignoring" is not a tactic of the Left. They must dehumanize and belittle you if they don't agree with you.
Ahh, Buzzfeed. The paragon of journalistic integrity.
For the haters, I wonder if you understand this region of the world? The people in these districts are poor. Not American poor where you have to settle for a McDonalds value meal (regular, not large) instead instead of steak, but, "I wonder if I will eat today" poor. The influx of dollars from hunters helps keep their villages going, and these animals are used as meat for the locals.
If you hate this so much (I'm especially talking to you PETA), put your money where your mouth is, pony up the $5,000-$10,000 that a hunt tag costs, and then don't hunt. Of course the animal you "save" will only be saved from first world hunters. The local government will still need to cull it, and it will still be used as food.
Not sure how politics made its way in here but that is unrelated so stop giving us on the right a bad name by erroneously throwing around dumb arguments. This was a discussion about hunting. Also the economics of some poor village is unrelated to killing a threatened animal. And anyone that uses the "poor" in Africa to back up their argument should donate some money or do something worthwhile to help them. I don't care about the poor there or most of the animals, just the animals that may not be around in 50 years.
