RE: No need to go to Alaska....sit back...grab a beer....

It is indeed! My son was 7 when we went-that was in 1999. Loved it and have huge memories. Great feed!

RE: What Brand Dog Food do you Feed Your Dog and Why?

it was foolish for us not to invest in quality products(No knock on Costco at all). So now our "kids" get Blue Wilderness canned(had used Newman's Own also) and Orijen Senior Dry. They Love it!! Just out of curiosity is there any difference in their coat/health, etc? We had been feeding Blue Buffalo but got tired of the cost so we tried the switch to Pro Plan and have had great results. Price doesn't necessarily equate with quality.

Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Stomach formula. Helps tremendously with Jesse's skin issues and they both love it.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

DOES NOT (I may get flamed for this) rely on the representations of others as to what is legal or not for the hunt; Any flaming would be unjustified-it's a reasonable thought. However, if all business were run in an ethical manner, this wouldn't be an issue. Due diligence must be done before undertaking any such responsibility. Had the guides been in trouble before? He was in a foreign country so I would not find it unusual that someone might just take it for granted the guides were playing by the rules.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

Sounds like a real hunter; Correct term would be "poacher".

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

I usually don't get into these discussions; however, Crowe, I feel it IS our concern in terms of the negative role model it provides for other 'hunters' and our children as well. Wether or not it happened in our country is not an issue, how the 'hunter' conducted himself is. And, let us please stick to the topic; not dogs left in cars, etc. Thank you. Do I have to repeat myself AGAIN that I agree this guy was not ethical? But that's not the point that's being debated, it's whether or not trophy hunting should be allowed. No one has disputed this guy's a putz and then some. And since when are comparisons to get a point across going off topic? It's a validation of a belief, no more, no less, and central to many arguments. the question for hunted species is the population of that species relative to the resources for that species. Agreed, and one of my "standards".

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

Agree totally. (I was about to challenge you on some of your other views in this thread...but I think we have found some common ground). Feel free to challenge! :) I don't debate to change someone's mind, especially on such an emotional issue. I debate to help those on the fence to form an opinion if they so desire and to get people to think about their opinions. Part of my teaching as a Hunter Ed instructor included ethi-reasoning, which was my FAVORITE part. Anyone can spit out or spit back rules and laws, but finding out why we do the things we do is absolutely fascinating to me. It gets people to think and understand where they are coming from-or where someone else is coming from. The main gist of my opinion is there are no "degrees of death". Dead is dead. One creature is no more beautiful or more important than another. Should we use our resources wisely and as humanely as possible? Absolutely. It's the self-righteous indignation of some that's at issue. It's OK to kill one creature such as a bug just because we want to but it's not OK to kill a big game animal for no other reason than we don't think it's right. You don't want to hunt, no skin off my teeth. But don't judge me because I might want to. I don't judge vegans as long as they don't tell me not to eat meat. I have to admit at this point I am amused that more people are up in arms over a lion than they were over the two young kids left alone in the 5er at a cg for days on end. I was told to MYOB on that issue irrespective of what harm may come to those kids. I respectfully suggest that the same attitude be adopted for the lion. It's truly not our concern.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

So the dentist not only lacks ethics, but shooting skill. Either lacked skill or over-estimated it. NOTHING excuses him leaving a suffering animal there for almost two days.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

Are one shot, down and dead kills with bows of any kind possible? Yes. It takes incredible skill but it can be done. You equate trophy hunting to squishing a bug??? Yes. Ultimate result is still the same and ethically what's the difference? You kill an animal because you want it's hide/head or you kill a bug because it's "in your space". And killing the bug potentially disrupts the food chain for other animals. And yes, "rarely" does cut it as it's usually meat that just can't be eaten that gets discarded. Many of the outfitters keep villagers from starving. If you want to start getting down to the nitty gritty of animal "ethics" think about what happens the next time you drop a LIVE lobster into a boiling pot of water/steam (or you order from a restaurant) or what's done to baby calves to get veal. Despite what some want to think man can survive just fine without that steak or rack of ribs. A "black eye"? Hardly. What gives mankind a black eye is when we start to place the life of an animal ahead of the life of a human, we come down hard on a QB who MAY have deflated a football but reduce the penalty to spouse and child abusers and give someone like Kim Kardashian idol status. 'Nuff said.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

With your background/involvement you still have a 'trophy hunt' on your bucket list? Absolutely. There are different types of trophy hunts, those that are canned and those that are no different than hiring a bear guide up in Maine or out in Montana. You can use your imagination to decide which one you think I'd pick. Keep in mind that the meat rarely goes to waste. Since the meat generally cannot be taken back to the states it's eaten at the lodge or donated to the local villages. Mark, great post.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

In the grand scheme of things, I couldn't care less. With all that's going on in our world these days (especially this week), the fact that the country is up in arms over a lion just shows how out of perspective our culture has become. Very true. His actions, however heinous some might find them, are completely irrelevant to all of us. Time to move on to things that are far more important. On the the other hand some hunter's might find him a kindred spirit. It would be interesting to know. I'll repeat myself. He's neither a hunter nor a sportsman. Someone who doesn't follow the ethics of good hunting is a poacher. I was heavily involved with hunting issues for many years, including being a hunter ed instructor for the state of MA, and still follow them closely. This man would be shunned by everyone I know, including the people at Safari Club International. As much as you might want to you can't blanket brush every hunter with the same stroke just as we can't blanket brush dog owners.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

This was not hunting. Agree as stated in an earlier post.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

I have a big problem with this kind of trophy only testosterone hunting. Not all trophy hunting is "testosterone" hunting. Would it surprise you to know that this type of hunt (done fairly of course) is on my bucket list? If you look at the overall picture trophy hunting is no more or less fair than squashing a bug or letting a mouse die a slow, painful death in an unattended mouse trap. End results is still the same. From what I understand his despicable trophy hunting may do tremendously more damage than the loss of one lion. The male lion who takes over the pride will likely kill all of Cecil's offspring. Those cubs' mothers very well may be killed defending them. It may just have been a matter of time before this happened naturally. We can second guess all we want but there's no indication he has head of his pride despite his age and size.

OP Man you need to get a life, must suck to be that miserable of a person!! Metzcool, not cool. Watch your step-a differing opinion is one thing but you are very close to overstepping the bounds of personal attack.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

Honestly I have no issue with sport hunting provided it's done in a fair manner. This wasn't. He also has a felony conviction for illegal bear hunting. He is neither a hunter nor a sportsman.
