Justice For Cecil

"I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favourite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt. I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt."

"Doctor" Walter Palmer is now despised by the internet and his business is ruined.

Good start, I'd say.

Are those really Young Trumps? Jesus.

It's their inalienable right to shoot things.

Imagine the outrage if lions were paying large sums of money so that they could travel to America to eat people

Hunters are fucking weird. But if you don't want them to do it, make it illegal, don't monster individuals involved.

Mind you I wouldn't go to that fucking dentist, would you?

Well no, he's thousands of miles away. was enough of a PITA travelling to Norwich for root canal work.

Kill ONLY, Moschops. No eating required. They'd also need to skin them and take the heads as trophies.

I'll all for monstering evil lion-killing dentists. And Young Trumps.

A senior finance bod I know recently went on a formal hunt to kill polar bears (yes - you really do get such a thing - it's perfectly legal to kill them as long as you are with a group that specialises in it and has a licence to do it).

It's utterly bewildering to me.

Arjuna - 29 Jul 2015 10:39:31 (#11 of 437)

You would if you had mad toothache and none else available.

BBBilly - 29 Jul 2015 10:40:08 (#12 of 437)

If you've got a pain in the arse after root canal work, your dentist is ;

A. incompetent

B. Something worse

Eric Trump

Great name.

A friend of mine, a scientist, worked in Greenland every summer for a decade. They had terrible problems with polar bears and they all had rifles "just in case". Of course, the bears come near the people for food. So that's our fault too.

He's no sportsman, this particular Walt. He paid a 'hunting safari' company to sneak into the national park, where it is illegal to kill the wildlife, and identify Cecil with spotlights and lure him out with bait.

Walt then tried to kill him with a bow and arrow, but failed, and they had pursue Cecil and finish him off with a rifle. It took them 40 hours.

And who would have ever thought they may be dodgy?

Moschops - 29 Jul 2015 10:48:53 (#17 of 437)

He will probably escape prosecution, but we can hope he is professionally ruined I suppose

Arjuna - 29 Jul 2015 10:51:37 (#18 of 437)

He may experience a bit of what it's like to be on the other side of the hunt

Well one can hope that Predator was actually factional and some young Yautja will turn up and skewer the dentist before making a trophy of his skull with excellent teeth.

Arjuna - 29 Jul 2015 10:55:20 (#20 of 437)

Good teeth or not, he wouldn't look good up on the wall.
