Great news.... even if he wasn't a poacher, this big game hunting is, for lack of a better word, "--------"

TheFarSide was great!

One of my favorites was the polar bears

"Poor African killed. Rich, white Americans celebrate."

He was a poacher trying to kill endangered species so he could sell parts of their bodies to rich people in other parts of the world. I am not celebrating his death but, by the same token, I am not condoning what he was there to do. I think the animals exacted justice for his crimes. And, BTW, those were S. African laws he was violating not laws imposed by white liberals in America. Sometimes I think your white guilt makes you see the world in a silly way.

Witnesses report that the last sounds the decedent heard were that of an elephant shouting "Who's endangered NOW, bitch?"

The animals dont know what a poacher is. They saw a meal opportunity. That's all.

You animal lovers need to stop humanizing animals. It clouds your view of them.

Seems quite appropriate.

Animals think humans are food and humans think animals are food.

The circle of Life.

Also, BOAZo needs to quit animalizing humans.

The animals wanted a meal. Karma delivered them one

My impression is... elephants don't do the malice thing... malice is sort of a human quality. The elephant encountered a predator... fought and won... elephants are vegetarians... so they didn't see a meal.. the lions always opportunistic... cleaned up afterward... very efficient... good for them.

It is a shame if the poacher was impoverished and struggling... in a world where the rich... who don't need the money... but are permitted to hunt endangered species from a safe place... and take home the trophies... just because.

Thoughts and prayers and may the same thing happen to EVERY poacher and big game hunter!
