Hunting

Postby greggerypeccary » 26 Oct 2018, 10:42

I just don't understand these people:

"Florida woman Larysa Switlyk, who hosts a show called Larysa Unleashed, posted a photo of herself posing with a dead wild goat on the island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides.

"The photo is understood to have been taken in Scotland a month ago, but only posted to social media on Tuesday."


"Beautiful wild goat here on the Island of Islay in Scotland. Such a fun hunt," Switlyk wrote on social media.

I just love the reaction from Ricky Gervais:

"A couple of cunts, dressed up like cunts, shooting a beautiful animal, then posing with the murdered carcass like right cunts and posting it on social media to show the world what cunts they are."

From someone else on Ricky's twitter feed (is that what it's called?):

"Jesus Christ, what the actual fuck is wrong with some people?

"If you feel a sense of achievement at killing a gentle little beast like a goat you must be a seriously disturbed and mentally limited person.

"Leave Scotland and never come back."

Always travel up north when I'm doing a bit of hunting, you know. Get away from it all. Not a lot of pigs down south.

"It’s a feral goat FFS. If they’d taken a few carrots with them they would have followed them around for days.

"That wasn’t hunting....... that was slaughtering a pet."

These idiots leave me speechless.

Thankfully Ricky said exactly what I wanted to say:

I would happily shoot a feral camel, goat or pig in outback Australia. They are not exactly good for the environment, especially the bloody camels! I have a pack of camel sausages in the fridge.

You wouldn't do it dressed in camouflage, and then post it on social media though, would you?

Nope. I would have uses for the meat all lined up, shoot it, hang it, clean it, joint it, eat it.

Exactly.

You wouldn't do it just to be an attention whore, which is exactly what this attention whore did.

Never shoot a fucking lion or elephant etc.

Camels do HUGE damage to fragile arid ecosystems. I am happy people can tame some of them to send livestock to improve camel genetics in the ME etc.

yes I think there are distinctions to be made here. Hunting for fun and trophies is sick shit.


Hunting to kill feral animals is more than necessary, and more should be done to reduce the numbers of feral imported animals in Australia.

It's always worse when an American does it, isn't it?

Yeah, bow hunting—no quick clean kill shot like a rifle.

Brumbies are being cleared out of Kosciosco National Park, I believe, but letting a lot of amateur hunters do it probably not the best way.

I’m all for hunting..... hand kill all u want and I think hunters should be allowed to kill all the lions and bears they want and sharks. Niether animal is allowed weapons... it would make it to easy for the bears if they had knives. :purple

I hunt game birds like chukar and pheasant. I do enjoy it, and anything I kill gets eaten. I also fish. I hunted feral pigs in Texas once.

But I can't imagine hunting a horse. In the U.S. the federal Bureau of Land Management does roundups of excess wild horses and adopts them out. This is done to prevent overgrazing and to preserve healthy herds of wild horses.

I would not hunt feral cats either. If I was raising chickens, and a feral cat was threatening my chickens, sure. But I would think a better idea would be to trap them in a cat trap using some cat food as bait. Then turn it over to Animal Control. If the cat cannot be domesticated, it can be euthanized humanely. I like cats. I can't imagine picking up a rifle and going hunting for feral cats.

Hunting is in our DNA. We are not that far removed from a time when if you didn't hunt, you didn't eat. I doesn't surprise me a bit that people enjoy it. We are, after all, genetically programmed to hunt.

Good hunters never waste animals. The animals that are taken are processed for their meat, and if a mount is made for a study or living room, there is no harm in that. That's just a matter of preference.

And let us not forget that store bought meat wasn't grown on a tree. That tasty steak on the barbie is a part of what was a living breathing animal. You simply paid someone else to kill it and butcher it for you. So let's not get too high and mighty, shall we?

The feral cat problem won’t be fixed until the supply of new ferals is stopped. Dunno why people want cats but apart from licensed breeders they can only buy neutered cats. Feral cats are killing our native fauna at a huge rate.

So the cats don’t just eat antechinus (marsupial mice) and birds!

Apparently, in Australia these feral cats don't have a natural enemy that eats them. Here in the states, there are few feral cats because of the high coyote population. Feral cat kittens in the wild generally do not survive the coyotes. I remember when I was in the Army in Hawaii, there were feral cats around. But they had no natural enemies, nothing eating them.

Domestic cats can be great pets, though. I've had cats all my life.

I suppose dingoes would eat a cat but calves would be easier prey I suppose. Foxes I doubt would take on a cat. Tasmanian Tiger would but clever us wiped them out. A Devil is more of a scavenger than a hunter but if it got a grip on a cat that’d be it for the cat, Devils can crunch big bones.
