Is This Right Or Wrong?

She paid for the safari hunt. As she said this will help deter poachers is bogus. I think it will promote poaching because the animals are getting more scarce. But I despise to killing these majestic beasts anyways. Soon we will lay down with them. :)

You don't have to be Batman to use the internet to do extra research:

Ok I’m gonna explain for the 53567544th time. The rhino was a green hunt, meaning it was darted and immobilized in order to draw blood for testing, DNA profiling, microchip ping the horn and treating a massive leg injury most likely caused by lions. People try to say that lions will not attack a hippo, rhino or elephant, quiet the contrary. Lions attack and kill the young of these species. The adults try to fight the lions off and are regularly successful, but do get injuries in the process. As for the lion that I shot with my bow, it was within a 45,000 acre fence with other lions and plains game. It’s in S Africa, so yes it was within a fence, but 45,000 acres is the equivalent to 70 square miles and considered fair chase. Lions that have come in and taken over a pride, not only kick the older lion out, but will also kill all of his cubs so that the lioness will come into heat again. Controlling the male lion population is important within large fenced areas like these in order to make sure the cubs have a high survival rate. Funds from a hunt like this goes partially to the government for permits but also to the farm owner as an incentive to keep and raise lions on their property. If there was no value, the farmers would kill all of the lions to have a higher survival and breeding rate in their plains game populations. Lions take a toll on plains game, thus farmers need money to purchase plains game and change out bloodlines within their lion prides to prevent interbreeding. Now to the leopard, this was a free ranging leopard in Zimbabwe on communal land. The money for the permit goes to the communal council and to their village people. Within this area of approximately 250,000 acres, 107 head of cattle was killed in a single year due to leopard kills. Leopard populations have to be controlled in certain areas. So yes, my efforts do go to conservation efforts and are all fair chase, not canned hunts. In fact these are very mentally and physically challenging hunts, on foot tracking and walking miles and miles a day.

So what does everyone say now?

''Lions attack and kill the young of these species'' :ROFLMAO::rolleyes: Lions eating the young and weak...like they have done for 1000's of years... is justification for killing them? Hunting them with a bow... I will bet on the lion if she is thrown into the Kruger with a bow. She hunted the lions during the day, when they mostly sleeping. Besides, lions don't necessarily see humans as a threat until they get an arrow in their leg.

''The adults try to fight the lions off and are regularly successful, but do get injuries in the process''
Young male Lion takeovers are done to ensure the best lion cubs survive. They chase fellow males away with scars / minor injuries mostly, not life threatening arrows in the leg.

''Controlling the male lion population is important within large fenced areas like these in order to make sure the cubs have a high survival rate'' :ROFLMAO::rolleyes: Why not remove some male lions to other area's. If you want cubs to live, clearly the problem is not in numbers of lions.

''As for the lion that I shot with my bow, it was within a 45,000 acre fence with other lions and plains game. It’s in S Africa, so yes it was within a fence, but 45,000 acres is the equivalent to 70 square miles and considered fair chase''. :ROFLMAO::rolleyes:http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/why-killing-a-lion-is-the-most-cowardly-thing-you-can-do

''Now to the leopard, this was a free ranging leopard in Zimbabwe on communal land'' :rolleyes: Leopards are on the 'threatened' species list...because of lazy idiotic farmers unable to introduce preventative measures. Savagery / no culture / no respect for wildlife is common in Africa...she didn't 'help' anyone! http://bigcatrescue.org/namibia-leopard-hunt-condemned-in-south-africa/

My sister and her husband run a game lodge here. Her husband, a game ranger, whilst on a drive saw a kill covered in flies. Wanting to show the visitors a lion, he jumped out the jeep and went to see how fresh the kill was. When he got close to it a male lion charged at him from the bushes. It came to within a meter of him he said. He had a gun on him but did not draw it. He just lowered his arms and walked backwards slowly. Showing the lion he is not a threat. Nothing more happened! The lion left him alone.

The funny thing is...the one guy with a video camera recording it got such a fright when the lion charged that he threw his camera into a river :ROFLMAO:.

Lions at night time are a completely different creature though. Nobody with a compound bow will survive a male lion attack at night!

Dave, thanks for posting her reply, the line about ''fair chase'' had me in stitches!!! :ROFLMAO::giggle:

This story has been floating around the internet quite a bit. I've been seeing a mix reaction from people.

I believe that man has a stewardship over animals. We ought to respect them, but that includes just purposes; food, clothing, medical use, etc. I can't justify hunting for sport as a just cause if it means purely shooting the animal to watch it die. Most hunters don't hunt for that reason -- there is often a purpose for it.

I know about Kendall Jones through a friend who subscribes to her page. As far as I can see based on what she writes about her hunting experiences, some of them seem to be unjust.

I don't know enough to make a definite claim, but some of these animals she's hunting aren't being put to much use other than the satisfaction of having conquered it.
