      Big Game Hunting industry has helped these animals and has saved some of the rare ones. hunting has gave the local people and governments an incentive to protect these animals.Β  The money of the hunt goes to saving the animals, the meat goes towards feeding local tribes. If they didn’t do game hunting poachers would go unchecked and kill these animals without impunity and locals would not set aside land and protect land for these animals. You guys love these animals, but unfortunately you don’t love them enough to give your money to protect them, these game hunter do. Game hunters want these animals around for the future to continue their sport. also , many of the animals they kill are old males that actually hurt the younger males and prevent them from mating. plz read up, don’t let your emotions decide

      @d campbell – many of the poachers are black Africans as are the hunt guides for these barbaric white boys. This is not a particularly race related issue.

      @Humpty Dumpty You need to work on your reading comprehension. I said that sport hunters are insecure males (most of them ARE male) trying to overcompensate, which is most likely true. However, nowhere in that sentence did I mention ALL, MOST or any other claims about what percentage of males I am describing. I was specifically talking about sport hunters. Are all males sport hunters? Obviously not so it was ridiculous for you to jump to that conclusion. Its like when someone mentions that rape is a problem in society and some idiot right-winger screams, “STOP SAYING ALL MEN ARE RAPISTS!!!”

      Although it is hilarious that this idiot got his comeuppance it is still true that capitalism ensures that one day the only animals left will be the ones with an economic value – and hunting places a value on them.

      @will mach: “Game hunters want these animals around for the future to continue their sport”. BS. Most hunters would shoot the last rare (pick one) animal just to put it on their wall and then brag about it. They don’t pay big money to kill one to preserve them, they pay it because that’s the price they have to pay to kill one.

    • Posted by Raena-Willow Deveruoix, at Reply

      Big game hunting uses the extravagant $$ those cucks use to hide behind their hand cannons and actually buys more land, supplies, advertising, research, and etc for those animals, when one is killed, the hunters don’t get to choose, they have to kill a specific animal(one who is usually causing trouble; ie fights or killing babies) of the herd. If they kill any other they will be fined and jailed as well as what they paid, and they will never be allowed to hunt that particular animal again. I hate hunting and I hate the idea of big game hunting and how these people have weird sadistic desires. But there is no denying where the money goes.

    Hannah made a valid point. This man hunted leopards and you don’t eat leopards, so he wasn’t hunting his targets for food.

    • Posted by hamdoggius, at Reply

      We have wild animals you can hunt in New Zealand too. We don’t hunt the endangered ones. Please inform me of the other detrimental variables that I in my liberal lala land can’t see. Instead of mocking me could you please add some context to this other than, keep it legal or it goes underground. Because that’s a profoundly stupid fallacy in this instance. You could arrest people found poaching, because, it’s illegal.

      because they’re less than men and feel like hunting beautiful creatures will make them “manly”.. twisted logic but I guarantee all of these hunters probably have very small man-parts and feel like they need to compensate somehow lol

    • Posted by tonedog77, at Reply

      Senad Elezovic no it isn’t, they aren’t adapted to being prey, it takes ages and a lot of effort for them to produce just one baby and in no way can they compete in evading being shot. “sport” isn’t a dirty word it means the hunt is competitive where the animal has a fighting chance to prevail by using its natural anti-predation adaptations. Hunting jack rabbit with a greyhound is sporting because the jackrabbit can use its amazing running ability to jink and jive and avoid capture, it will win most of the time, if it is caught it failed at being a jack rabbit and so it rightfully is killed and removed from the genepool keeping the species strong. Shooting an elephant in the face is just mindless destruction that isn’t fair or sporting in any way and you are simply damaging the species.
