Hunting things just for trophy is superlame IMO. Like, who'd wanna shoot at a giraffe for god's sake?? That being said you damn well better be a fullout vegetarian before you go off on "hunting" as a pursuit in general, otherwise you're a textbook hypocrite.
Deer steak is pretty tasty, for example. And if you flip over that while picking a McDonald's burger out of your teeth I'd suggest you visit a slaughterhouse to hear what 1000 screaming terrified cows sound like.
Any vegetarians/vegans, on the other hand, have "full indignation right" IMO
I think Americans often forget whose navy helped them (critically) win the Revolutionary War. Hell, at Yorktown the few French regulars ("advisors") still had to show the US volunteers how to properly angle their trenches against cannon fire and stuff like that!
Oh, they died for a good cause! Like securing the survival of the species. And very gladly, I'm sure.
There is hunting for a reason, and then there is mindless fucking killing. But I'm certain Little Falcon thinks this is great stuff.
What would you suggest the Africans do with these animals? Are you in a better position to judge how they handle their animal populations than they are? Have you sent them a nasty email telling the President of Zimbabwe you disapprove of this practice?
And I'd love to shoot a giraffe if I could afford it.
So, I'm guessing people who won't shut the fuck up about trophy hunting all eschew leather goods, right? I mean, since we all now seem to agree it's immoral to kill God's beautiful creatures for anything but sustenance, it seems somewhat hypocritical to kill cattle just for nice shoes.
