Texan veterinarian Kirsten Lindsay
Lindsay bragged on Facebook that she had shot a feral cat with a bow and arrow. She lost her job and quite rightly so, which was some justice for her victim, Tiger, who actually belonged to Claire and Bill Johnson.
Dentist Walter J Palmer of Minnesota
Palmer paid $50,000 to lure 13-year-old Cecil the lion from the security of Hwange National Park to a nearby farm where he shot him. He got away with it not, not so the two Zimbabweans who arranged it for him. I wouldn’t want Palmer anywhere near my teeth, but Cecil’s family can sink theirs into him any time.
MP for New South Wales – Robert Borsak
Borsak says he ate the meat of an elephant he shot – “but not in one sitting”. I should think not.
“I choose to hunt and gather my own meat because it is my right to do so. It is a clean, organic, and sustainable way to live. I choose to cull feral and invasive animals because culling protects our native species and habitats, and I consider myself a responsible and ethical hunter and fisher.” Borsak said.
Surely this was a case of an irresponsible and unethical Australian hunter being invasive and culling an African elephant in their own homeland where they should be allowed to roam free.
