Animal rights campaigners outraged as
Texas cheerleader poses in dozens of

hunts on African safaris

Global animal lovers are up in arms over a teenage Texas girl´s love of killing big African game, so much so that they´re even demanding she be banned from posting pictures of herself smiling alongside her trophies online. Nineteen-year-old Kendall Jones claims photos of dead hippos, elephants, lions and other beasts on Facebook are a testament to her hunting skills and dedication to game preservation. But critics are appalled by the teen´s beaming social media and are calling Kendall sick and depraved for killing the rare animals and boasting about it online. An online petition to force Kendall to remove

Comments:
Could their objection be the hunter is a whole lot cuter than Teddy Rossvelt? None of the animals she killed are endangered. This is standard fare for the Dallas Safari Club and they are a staple on the Outdoors Channel.

Funny how some folks get upset about controlled, legal hunts and never worry about a dozen or so shootings in Chicago every weekend. Some fatal, some wing shots, but they worry about animals in Africa.

As in most things in the world, I think there is a lot of jealousy in the world. On teh otehr hand, maybe a little privacy would have saved this girl some grief. But social media is a drug. You are exposing yourself to all.

Just got back from East Africa....saw active snares set by poachers. Tanzania just passed a law, "shoot first, ask questions last"....I am sorry, but this is ridiculous to post these beautiful animals on social media. Standard fare for safari clubs?? These people need to get a life.

Watch these animals in their natural habitat with their young and then go shoot them? I will never understand people like this. Never!!

If you hunt it to eat it, okay.

If you need trophies, you need to get a life.

No hunter condones outright cruelty.

That said, when AREN´T animal rights campaigners outraged? They can´t drive down the street past a McDonald´s with having a nervous breakdown.

Finally, if animals have rights when will one of the animals speak up to assert those rights?

Being a meat hunter for 50 years, I am aware of the mental gymnastics wealthy "sports" go though to justify their trophy fetishes. Safari club seems to attract the most blatant and obnoxious of the ilk. (see ken bering) If they really need to satisfy some primordial urge, at least have the consideration to do it in private. To display this (anything, really) on social media was just plain stupid.

Reality Check time, folks. These are NOT random hunts, they are game preserve "culls." The preserves get more animals than their area can support so they identify older, non-breeding or physically damaged animals and auction off the rights to hunt them to raise money for the preserve. The hunt is done with game preserve rangers in attendance.

Without the auction the animals would have to be culled (aka killed) by the rangers anyway.

There is a skill set with hunting -- if needed and you do not have that skill set don’t look for me to feed you. If things keep going the way they are you will need to be able to protect your family here in the good old USA. Our gov has already demonstrated that it won’t protect us. I’d rather have her as a neighbor than someone that gets upset with a little blood and culling a heard. Just like the clowns in the N.E. that cut back on deer hunting and then went bonkers over bambi eating their plants and making a mess in the yard.

#7 is right. Presently, African endangered animals are never targeted by responsible hunter guides--poachers are the exception--never mind what Hemingway wrote seventy or eighty years ago. Back then things were different. I love the African fauna. It should be protected.

The handful of LDotters who object to my first person experiences--you know who you are--should scroll down to the next reply for the preservation of your equanimity. I saw your replies on manners yesterday. Nice try.

Did anyone read the article--some of those animals were shot with darts to immobilize them so they could be checked health wise and tagged. And, to some who complained, she was in Africa and yes some was a the Safari club.

These so-called animal rights campaigners are big time hypocrites. They raise hell about controlled legal hunts but remain totally silent when PETA kills pets by the thousands and dumps them in garbage bins for local waste haulers to use tax payer money to pick them up and dump them into dumps.

COLUMBIA – A drone carrying cellphones, marijuana and other contraband into a South Carolina maximum-security prison never made it inside the 12-foot-high razor wire fence, and authorities said Wednesday they are looking for one of two people accused in connection with trying to sneak it in. The search has been ongoing since April 21, when officials found a small, crashed drone in bushes outside the walls of Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, according to Corrections Department spokeswoman Stephanie Givens. At the site, Givens said that officers also found materials that inmates aren’t supposed to have, including the phones, tobacco products, marijuana

An Athens-Clarke County police officer shot and killed a dog Tuesday after it mauled a 10-year-old boy and then attacked the officer, the Athens Banner-Herald reports. Police responded to a home at 9:46 p.m. after the attack was reported. A 14-year-old boy told the officer his brother had been bitten in the face by the family’s pit bull, the Banner-Herald reports. “(He) was visibly upset about what just happened and expressed his desire for the dog to die,” according to a police incident report, the Banner-Herald reports.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has called for an end to the fighting and bombing in Gaza. “Both sides must distinguish between combatants and noncombatants, and Israel must ensure that its use of force is proportionate in accordance with international humanitarian law. More immediately, all combat operations must stop, and Israeli troops should withdraw from Gaza,” Carter said in a statement released Tuesday. So far, more than 600 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed in the fighting, according to reports. The Israeli death toll is estimated at 29, including two civilians.

It always comes back to the dinner table with this guy. The 75-year-old Pakistani immigrant convicted in Brooklyn of beating his wife to death because she served him lentils instead of goat should get the minimum sentence, his lawyer argued Wednesday — because the lack of Pakistani food behind bars will be a hardship. “His inability to speak English and his inability to have Pakistani food will make his incarceration even more difficult than the average inmate,” defense attorney Julie Clark wrote in court papers seeking the minimum 15 years to life sentence for Noor Hussain.

Happy 158th birthday, Nikola Tesla. The anniversary of the Serbian-American inventor´s birth will be celebrated Thursday with cake and a flag-raising ceremony at his former laboratory in Shoreham, followed by discussions of his work at Shoreham-Wading River High School. Both events are free. Tesla, who was born July 10, 1856, in Croatia, has been credited with developing wireless technologies and devising some of the major components used in modern radio and electricity. Tesla achieved local fame in the early 20th century when he worked for about 12 years in a Shoreham lab called Wardenclyffe, at Route 25A and Randall Road.

Is the Name Kaffir Lime Racist?

Posted By: snakeoil- 7/5/2014 2:20:14 PM     Post Reply
If you’re an American, you might not flinch when you hear a certain bumpy green citrus fruit referred to as a kaffir lime. But in many parts of the world—most notably South Africa—the common moniker for the fruit, best known as an ingredient in Southeast Asian cooking, sounds heinously offensive. As Veronica Vinje recently pointed out on Straight.com, kaffir is “a horrible racial epithet, akin to using the N-word in North America.” So why are these limes called by that name? The K-word has a long, complex history, but how it came to refer to a type of citrus fruit is a bit murky. The Arabic word kafir was originally used to refer to

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals.
