• Nice Job Bunny Huggers: 200 Lions To Be Culled Due To “Cecil Effect”

    Most hunters understand things about conservation. They love to hunt animals and eat them. Conservation is a huge part of that. Herd health of the species being hunted is not lost even on your average North-American redneck hunter shooting white-tailed deer.

    It’s definitely not lost on rich dentists who travel the world hunting exotic species. The massive amounts of money spent on that endeavor does so much to help the animals in the far reaches of the world, but it does even more for the usually poor people who live near the exotic animals.

    It comes as no surprise, that after all the faux outrage about Cecil the Lion being killed that the truth of the lion situation is now made 10-fold worse by the bunny-hugging-liberals.

    Thanks Ricky Gervais…you didn’t like Cecil being killed? Now 200 lions are being killed directly because of you. What you did by effectively demonizing that Minnesota dentist was destroy one of the main sources of income and meat provision to huge sections of Africa.

    When you all went on Facebook and trashed any hunter you could find, you killed these lions. Their blood is on your hands. When you visited the Minnesota Dentist and published his place of work ruining his business, you killed lions.

    You did so much more than kill lions. You killed people. I know most liberals care about lions a lot more than people, but if the populations of dangerous game, especially lions, are not held in check, people get killed.

    Remember the Hollywood movie “Ghost In The Darkness”? Yeah, it’s like that, except no Val Kilmer and Michael Douglas there to kill the lions that are trashing your lives and your efforts.

    It’s not enough to ruin America with your tree-hugging ways. You had to crush some poor tenant farmer in Africa too. With friends like you, who needs enemies.

    From Breitbart:

    A Zimbabwean game reserve has warned that it may have to cull 200 lions because of what it calls “the Cecil effect.”

    Under normal circumstances, the rights to shoot those lions would have been sold to big game hunters – bringing many hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local economy, providing livelihoods for people and boosting the wildlife conservation budget.

    Instead, most likely, those lions will now have to be destroyed to no purpose. I blame Ricky Gervais.

    Not just Ricky Gervais, obviously. After the world-infamous death of Cecil the Lion there was certainly no shortage of bloviating bleeding hearts announcing to anyone who would listen just how outraged they were that a beast they’d never heard of till two seconds ago had been shot for sport by a Minnesota dentist.

    It’s just that Gervais, with his several million Twitter followers and his shark-toothed Hollywood presence and his (still-not-quite-totally-decayed) cultish comedy credibility, was probably the most influential of the bunch.

    Well, welcome to the world of unintended consequences, Funny Little Fat Man, chubby little loser with the pug nose face. You, Gervais, must now bear partial responsibility for the senseless slaughter of 200 of those big cats you claim to care about so much.

    You could, I suppose, argue that unlike those 200 common-or-garden lions Cecil was special because he had a name and was – apparently – beloved by visitors to Hwange national park because of his distinctive black mane and friendly disposition.

    But I would counter that 200 nameless lions killed to no purpose is a far greater crime against nature than a single lion called Cecil dying an honourable, lucrative and productive death as a game trophy.

    I also think that the kind of childish anthropomorphisation with which Gervais and his fellow celebrity bunny huggers indulge themselves takes us down a very dangerous path, as I tried to argue at the peak of the Cecil hysteria.
