The American who shot a 'favourite' lion after it was 'lured' out of a national nature reserve in Zimbabwe is not helping the cause of other hunters.
Not my scene, even if I could afford it, shooting anything with a crossbow and following it for 24 hours before being able to despatch it with a rifle.
This incident is likely to destroy his medical career, despite being a hunter of large game for years, so strong is the reaction worldwide on social media.
I think I regret his actions, past and recent past, almost as much as I regret the rise of 'social media'. If the future of many animals didnt lie in part in paying hunters then I would find it distasteful - or is lion the next gourmet delicacy ?
