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.

Bragging on social media never ends well, but she probably learned a lesson about sharing.

I am happy for her good fortune to be able to travel and experience something few can today.

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.

Sensible young woman IMO.

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.

Carter calls for end

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. Humantarian groups have also called for an end to

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.

After a week of especially heavy criticism, Hillary Clinton is defending the hefty price tags on her university speeches. (Via Getty Images) In an interview with ABC Friday, Clinton said she has given every penny of the thousands of dollars she´s earned giving paid speeches over the last year and a half to her family´s charitable foundation. "All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation."

Is the Name Kaffir Lime Racist?

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

The woman filled the empty air by saying, “healthier.”

Obama wants to be impeached

Posted By: earlybird- 7/25/2014 8:09:42 PM     Post Reply
President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences. The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. hey hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated

The IDF has not yet located and destroyed all of Hamas´ terror tunnels, but the consensus about the intent behind them is quite clear. This is Jonathan Dahoah HeLevi of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister, delivered a revealing speech on March 23, 2014, in which he stressed the strategic importance of the Hamas attack tunnels, which, he argued, have changed the balance of power with Israel, when taken together with his organization’s military build-up. In the meantime, the IDF’s war against the tunnels continues. On Monday IDF forces thwarted another terror attack after two groups of Hamas

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed

But the men say it was a misunderstanding: They plan to use the pressure cookers to prepare rice, chicken and meat.

One third of Americans think President Barack Obama should be impeached, a new poll says. According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don’t support impeachment. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats. When asked about when Congress should attempt to impeach a president, 79 percent of Americans said it should only be used if there is evidence of a serious crime — such as

As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn´t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama -- but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations. Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to Obama, said Friday that the White House
