He doesn’t seem to mind spending that much though does he? Just look how happy he is!
Oh look. Here’s another elephant he killed for fun. Are you aware that poachers ALONE kill 94 elephants a day? That’s far more elephants dying before they can even reproduce. Between poachers and jerkoffs like this, Africa is losing its big game very quickly. It is highly likely that elephants and rhinos can (and probably will be) completely extinct in the wild within the next decade.
So how does it work? Well, usually the animals are lured from a national park on to private property. Trophy hunters will leave out bait, play the sounds of other animals to lure them in, or a few other tactics to find their animal victims. Canned hunting is even worse. It is the ‘shooting fish in a barrel’ version of trophy hunting. The animals are often hand raised so they are tame and don’t run away. They leave food out for them one day, then some coward creeps up and shoots them with a high powered bow or rifle. Sometimes they don’t even have to creep. Sometimes they just shoot them from the back of a truck then go back to drinking their Gin & Tonic like it was just a bit of harmless fun.
(I have no idea how people can consider this sickening practice a ‘sport’…)
