1000's Sign Petition To Have This Woman Banned From South Africa - JacksGap

For like a week this sh** has been all over my Facebook. People seriously have nothing better to do. I know some people who have signed the petition. They drive me nuts. There is no taking to them. She's not a freaking poacher. I mean the places she would be going to/ being allowed into have regulations and she follows them. She isn't disturbing the population. There are way more important things to get this mad about.

The comments on the article are "amazing" "i agree if she was going to eat those animals, fine but she does that for fun, if she can kill for fun she can kill a human too" How is this logic? I'm pretty sure plenty of people who have never hunted have "Killed a human too".

Ugh okay, rant over.

Conservation, population and healthy herds and the real reasons we hunt are never espoused by those folks....

Hunters are the original Conservationists and have provided billions in conservation funds through taxes.

Their political agenda overrides truth and they will never see it.......

Such as it is with most liberal/left views, emotions displace facts in every way.

The conservation organization that guided her hunt spends a lot of its profits on conservation methods, such as rebuilding border fences to keep poachers out or monitoring herds to maintain population sizes. Meanwhile, these so-called activists have never accomplished anything more than generate Facebook likes by sitting on their computers and complaining about what other people are doing.

I can't find it at the moment, but there is an article where the guy points out that African countries that have legal hunting and use revenues generated have much more success in conservation because it's nearly self sustainable. And they have more money to regulate populations...

Exactly what I was thinking. She isn't a poacher. She isn't taking the animal in the night. You can't just kill any animal you see on these safaris. You are with guides and government officials. Its not like she's stalking through the jungle shooting the first thing she sees.

Conservation trophy hunting on a threatened species. Hmmm...
You have 400 lb predators live in your backyard sometime and let me know how conservation minded you are toward them.

Americans have a very condescending way of approaching African issues. IMO the European attitude is worse.

Exactly, most of the game that's hunted in conservation countries are going to be killed either way. Whether they're deemed a danger to the rest of its species, they killed a human, or too many males of its kind in one area.
