Cecil The Lion

Myself,as everyone else, only know what happened to that lion from what we read or hear via the media.If it did happen that way I think that was really bad.It gives all ethical hunters a bad name however...The people want to hang this guy,put him out of business,and ruin him,the whole country is in an uproar.With that being said,on the 4th of July weekend 85 people where shot in Chicago,15 fatally. Nobody demonstrated,no candlelight vigil,nothing much on our local news. Did we misplace our priorities when people are going nuts over a poacher but not real upset about 15 dead people over a weekend in one city .Oh forgot this...didnt see one sign in Chicago the said BLACK LIVES MATTER

Re: Cecil The Lion

The nut jobs come out of the woodwork when this kind of thing is in the news. It gives liberal bambi lovers a bad name

Re: Cecil The Lion

The problems start when people choose the wrong names for Animals. Instead of Choosing to name the Lion Cecil they should have name him " Satan the Baby Killer" its a long name but you wouldn't have these issues. Instead of going after the Dentist he would be a hero for killing Satan the baby killer, its all in the names

Re: Cecil The Lion

The problem is when people give wild animals a name period. They might live around you but they dam sure ain't your neighbors or pet. If that lion had the chance he would have torn that guy up in a heartbeat. It's not politically correct any more but ask Little Black Sambo his take on big wild cats.

Sounds like this was more about money than it was about hunting. This guy paid over 50K for his hunt and his outfitter gave him more than he ever expected.

My ability to remember lyrics from songs of the 60's far exceed my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen

Re: Cecil The Lion

I agree that killing that lion was wrong but as stated we have more pressing issues. Most pedophiles aren't persecuted as badly as that dentist has been.

Re: Cecil The Lion

I personally could not care less about a lion being shot in Africa. Hard to believe it's even news.
