Barbiestylez:  Okay, so the plains animals are like hunting white tail and hogs here in ths US, got that. However, $35,000!? If I had that much money to just throw away I definitely would do something better than hunting an innocent animal.

This bitch really paid $86,500…not including the rhino because I don’t see a price for that, it’s big 5 so I’m not sure why it’s not on there. That is ridiculous that people will spend that much just to kill a gorgeous animal.

GrumpytheDwarf:  To be honest, this is not really something which people commonly know about. You really have to be fairly heavily involved in these things to understand what’s going on. I lived with indigenous communities for a fairly long time in my teens (6 months), and looking back then even after that, my understanding was so shallow. I still believed a lot of the so-called “environmentalist” narratives and myths, and I didn’t have a complete understanding of how big business, government, and some sectors of the more unscrupulous parts of the charity industry operate. That’s not to criticise hard working charity workers and environmentalists, many of whom do a fantastic job with very limited resources. But the whole picture is murkier than that.

The other thing is that you really have to live in these places for a long time, because people are frightened. They won’t talk to you, even if you live there for 6 months, 12 months. You start by finding out in dribs and drabs… X’s father is dead, but there’s no grave, etc etc. Eventually you realise that there’s a whole lot of stuff which just goes unspoken… but it takes a long time to put the pieces together. My real experience is not actually in Africa but Asia, although I have indigenous African friends…  however, there are a lot of similarities all over the world, when it comes to this sort of thing.

Barbiestylez:  The whole concept of this business is just bizarre to me. I don’t really “get” recreational hunting myself. If you like the outdoors, take a hike. There is no need to kill an animal for kicks. (hunting as an affordable and clean food source for your family is different) However, typically I take the stance of live and let live. 

But there is something increadibly offputting about this business format. Heck the fact that it is called a “trophy fee” just creaps me out. If you want to suport conservation, just donate or pay for a safari that does not involve any bloodshed. If you want to kill animals for the thrill, call it what it is please.

There is something so eerie about this to me when you combine the killing of these animals with the business format and “conservation” guise.

It’s disgusting. I don’t understand how anyone gets pleasure from killing a living thing.

I just don’t like that she’s acting like she did this to help others. She should just admit she enjoys killing animals. Why else would anyone look so happy in these pics like “hey look! I’m holding a dead cat”

kortizi0:  I absolutely agree. What gets me is this song and dance about “conservation,” “saving the locals” etc.

Call it for what it is, girl.

I find this disgusting. I love animals, and the way she’s holding them and smiling is just wrong.
