How awful. Leopards are very cute and cuddly when they are young. They are affectionate and furry. If she had talked to them and explained the advantages of vegetarianism, I'm sure they would have seen the light and not killed all that cattle. She is a barbarian mass killer.

When done legally the fees for the hunt are used to fund the operations of the preserve.

Without it the animals would have no protection at all.

Ironically selling hunting licenses to hunt big game in Africa is a better way to conserve endangered species than by allowing them to be poached. The hunt generates more income for a whole village and encourages would be poachers to leave the animals alone.

In those areas the cattle represent a significant portion of the families wealth. Loss of the animal is a very significant event for them.

Why don’t we see any of the anti-hunting activist shmactivists protesting the Muzzies in Israel for hunting and killing those three Jewish young men?

That is fine by me, They are preadators and kill a LOT of people in the thrid world.

The only animals I really don’t like people killing are animals that are close to human in intelligence, things like the Great Apes (Chimps, Bonobos, Gorillas, etc), Elephants, and Intelligent Sea Mammals (Dophins, Whales, etc).

The rest as long as they are not endangered should be fair game, especially if it is to either protect humans or thin the herd to prevent disease.

Selling hunting licenses to protect game makes perfect sense. Here is why.
Native Americans and other indigenous hunter/gatherers, used wild game not only as a source of food, it was also CURRENCY.
Now, animal hides and bone are not currency, thus we have lost our connection to the value of the animal. If we put a monetary price, then its value is understood by more "advanced" civilizations. I use the word "advanced" VERY loosely.

See? Now this right here is the problem. This young lady films herself hunting animals. Libs don't dig that chit.

She would have been OK if she'd filmed herself having an abortion, but this hunting stuff's gotta stop!

I love all the big cats and share your sentiment, but if they’re in the wrong place and can’t be relocated, they are going to die anyway. Best to maximize their value to the local community and wildlife management by selling the right to dispose of them.

For the record, I’m not a hunter.

I wonder who is funding these hunts not cheap by any means.

Not only is she good looking and likes to hunt but she has to have money behind her.

“In those areas the cattle represent a significant portion of the families wealth. Loss of the animal is a very significant event for them.”

Isn’t that event known as “hunger”, as in “Since the leopard killed our cows, the children are hungry.”

But, let’s save the leopards by issuing hunting licenses for Libtards who oppose hunting in Africa. Many would line up to buy such a permit, and would pay to have the field dressed Libtard shipped to the African village for local consumption.

It could also be argued that such a hunt would support an age old African taste for ‘Long Pig’ - and we must retain ALL CULTURES.

So, go buy your Libtard Hunting Permit!

Do it to embrace cultural diversity.

Oh and it is about destroying anything that is American Culture including hunting as a means to prosperity by thinning the heard or keeping predators inline. I think the whole greenie suck up all the land and do nothing movement is about you not doing that or having fun with your Sand Rail, 4 X 4, or Dirt Bike.

I they can Destroy all aspects of American Culture and it's Rituals, Family, Religion, etc. They can "Fundamentally Transform" us into their Glorious Utopian Statist Dream.

They are so trying to take all the fun out of life, what a bag of lemons they are....

And feed the native tribes......

I have a friend who has gone on two 1 month long safaris to Africa and documented his travels in order to provide slide shows to the local grade and high schools in his town.

Both of those safaris have cost in excess of $30,000 each and like you said the fees not only support the preservation of the animals that are hunted but the animals are used to feed the people.......

YES, and beyond just rude and mean, think death threats, and all kinds of filthy remarks, including generous use of the “c”-word, (by so called “WOMEN”, no less!) These are the “peaceful, tolerant” ones, right? NOT! ;) You have to remember it’s been a bad few days for Communists... the Hobby Lobby case, and the increasingly obvious realization that Hillary! is not a well woman, the Kenyan’s regime is imploding, and they simply are just far more psychotic than usual!

"...she has to have money behind her."

Roger that. Just looking at those teeth, with the caps, veneers and dental work alone, that is a quite tidy sum of money.
She is 'sponsored' by someone or some organization.
I do NOT say this in a negative way - I fully agree with her actions and her rise in public light and wish her well.
Just sayin'...
