Is it terrible of me to be glad?

A bit. But if I go to the bullfights, I’m sitting on the “Visitors” side of the corrida.

Not in my book.

Only if it’s terrible whenever justice is served. I mean, sure, that elephant acted like judge, jury and executioner, but what’s an elephants to do without courts or legal representation?

I’m sure this guy has people who loved him, and will miss him, and I sympathize with them.

But I’m on the elephants’ side. Maybe this will make other people who prey on elephants think twice.

Guess he needed more gun. Elephant=1. Bwana=0.

Yeah, in trying to find out at what age elephants begin growing their tusks, I made the mistake of googling it and ended up being confronted with horrible photos of butchered elephants whose tusks were where hacked out of their heads and their corpses left to rot wherever they fell.

So if he was hired, what is the major difference between him and rouge poachers? A dead elephant is a dead elephant. And that market ensures the death of elephants only for the ivory. Legal or not.

He was a favorite of the Dallas Safari Club. This is the same gang of uber-rich slobs who recently auctioned off a white rhino hunt.

Its nice when nature gets a win every once in a while.

Sorry for the family of this man of course, every death, especially an unnecessary one like this is a tragedy, but he and his guides most likely knew the risks of venturing out into the wilderness for a little elephant thrill killing would likely be.

I’m right there with you. If it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.

I feel for his family and friends but sheesh.

19 sizzzzlerz  Jun 13, 2015 11:48:38am

I guess the elephant really (puts on sunglasses) stepped into that one
