I don't like this (And I am sure the hunters pictured couldn't give a shit, so yeah). You can eat leopard (bushmeat is a thing), but it's not a preferential meat, and the pelt serves as vanity rather than necessity. Leopards are an endangered species and it saddens me to see people hunt them because they keep prey animal populations (animals that destroy agriculture, which feed on a larger scale than a single leopard) checked and healthy.

I don't 'weep' for the cat--they are indeed vicious...but this cat doesn't appear to be some old rogue gone man-eater (the one exception that merits killing these animals), it seems to be very healthy. Killing to gratify a starved ego isn't as important as killing to put meat on the table, and it's a shame that all someone has to do to 'warrant' the killing of an endangered animal is to flash a big wad of money.

This just wasn't really necessary. The money could be used to support healthy leopards and the structure that enables preservation, but it could be obtained without killing the leopard.

Nothing more than my two cents.

The money for the hunting permit is used for exactly that purpose though...

In fact the main use of funding is to protect from poachers who kill without a shred of conservancy in mind.

Covered in my 'opinion' post. I get that the funds are for that...I just think if they really wanted to put that money forth for that purpose, the leopard shouldn't be the responsible party for the pound of flesh.

The money could be donated and they could get something instead of meat they will not eat, or a pelt for the wall/floor. Plus, they would still have bragging rights.

What other way than hunting is going to bring in money?

1
MagaPhone017 1 point ago +1 / -0

As I am unfamiliar with the rules that govern this particular scenario, I don't have a ready solution absent the data. But if folks who have the kind of disposable income available to partake of these hunts, it would be just as feasible to donate the funds and just enjoy a safari minus the hunt, or to hunt something that's not endangered.

I have to agree with this.

Look, if Donald Trump Jr. and Eric manually went after two leopards, and killed them 1 on 1 (or 2 vs 2) with their bare hands, I'd probably be alright with it.

But to take a very modern weapon and "hunt" the leopard doesn't make any sense to me. There's no sport. Why not just nuke the whole jungle and collect the glowing corpses?

At least with deer hunting, there's a purpose (culling) that is served.

But I too agree with your sentiments, I don't see any point in this.

You don't know what you're talking about. The regulated hunting industry is the only thing keeping exotic animals from becoming extinct. Wild game animals are a natural renewable resource and the stewards who manage game and habitat are hunters and their money. Someone paid at least $25,000 to kill that leopard, and that money goes right back in to habitat management and land purchasing. That leopard was specifically selected for harvest because it had already passed it's genes through multiple liters. Exotic big game hunting is an enterprise in the hundreds of millions of hunter's dollars. The're not just going out there willy nilly killing big cats.

Seriously, these people are delusional. We support guns and their purpose: to kill. What the fuck are these libtards smoking?

Leopards kill people, just like communists.

MagaPhone017 1 point ago +1 / -0

This is true; except a leopard will try to kill you quickly to sate its belly or that of its kin. Commies want another's death to be slow and agonizing. First they cancel your voice, then they cancel your job, then they make you a social pariah and then they starve you, work you to death, and when you can't build any more 'widgets' at the factory or dig any more holes, you get to dig your last hole: make it nice, as you're gonna wind up in that grave.

QED, leopards at least serve a purpose and are merciful as compared to communists.

You have obviously not seen a cat kill something. Your attempt at concen trolling has failed again. You should go back to your handler/undermanager and tell them "it is not working, they are too smart for us over at .win, can we please go back to reddit where we have the support of the mods/admins/owners? This is really embarassing".

I will not deport you, because I want the new people to see how pathetic you are.

Don't delete me bro.

I have seen many things kill other things. I've killed a few things myself (dispatched, butchered, preserved and prepared, also), to feed my Family. It doesn't bother me because the kills made by other animals (or myself) aren't made so much for status as the meat goes to feeding the predator or its offspring.

I fully support conservationism, and I understand that the money for this hunt may go into wildlife management. There is reasonable doubt that all of the funds garnered from such a hunt would go exclusively to ensure the health of the leopards' population or the territory where it was culled, rather than fattening the wallets of bureaucrats while those who work to actually conserve the animals get peanuts.

As poaching is a very real problem that exists and big cats are frequent targets, the person making the financial expenditure could donate the monies to preservation (up to and including putting pressure on poaching) rather than contributing to the cats' dwindling population numbers by killing a healthy specimen for ego-pats and a fancy pelt. That is my point and it's fine that you disagree.

You are welcome to accuse me of being a troll, as that's based more on your opinion...and clearly, a lack of counterpoint on your part. I can understand that other people don't agree with me and that's just a part of discussion. I find it amusing that you seem so agitated by the fact that others disagree with you, and particularly, feel the need to threaten to "tattle" and try to get me deported, accusing me of being a Retarditt shill and so forth...over an opinion that differs from yours. Is being apart from a hive mind that discomforting for you?

Furthermore, I don't think you really have any point that demonstrates any "trollish" intent on my part, as I'm not just shitposting, I've rendered an opinion of my own and it would seem that others here agree with it.

You say that snow leopards are critically endangered, that part I agree with.

If you knew shit about snow leopards you'd know that they look nothing like the one in the pic.

And the 2 Trumps don't look like they've been hunting cold high elevation terrain.

It's an African leopard soyboi!!

Generally the money for these expeditions runs in the tens of thousands of dollars. It's used to manage wildlife in the area, and the meat is given to local villages.

Many times, they hunt particular animals that are a threat to their own. Usually old, sterile bastards that will kill others of their kind.

Not sure if that's the case here, just trying to add some perspective

ceremony_ 7 points ago +7 / -0

Look, I'm the type of guy that's ok if people had grenades and RPGs (hell, even howitzers) in their backyards.

But, I am also an animal lover; I think hunting to cull a population (deer) is alright, but I don't see any real point in hunting these other creatures. It's just that there's no sport anymore with firearms involved.

Manually wrestling a bear, or chasing down a leopard with bare hands, that would be impressive.

Trump_Is_Cyrus_777 4 points ago +4 / -0

Is it a case that an old animal needs to be culled? I hear that sometimes happens because the young males don't get a chance to breed. Or an animal has gone rogue and is either a danger to the rest of the herd/humans so has to go.

The village (or whoever controls the wildlife area) auctions out the hunt rather than kill it themselves, so they earn money from it and the hunters get their kicks. Win/win I guess if the animal has to die for the good of the herd.

But if they just killed it for shits and giggles, well fuck 'em.

They hunt to eat.

Hunting is a major health risk for predators, they can get injured or killed.

So there's a difference between sport and for food.

For sport, I would submit that DJT Jr. or Eric should have done this with their bare hands.

Then I would be effing impressed.

Most all predators will hunt for sport. I've seen pregnant cow elk with nothing but their uteruses ripped out, the hearts of their calves, and the cow's heart eaten by wolves. With the rest left to rot.

Your own link contradicts your assertions; lol. Did you even bother to read it?

In the case of surplus killing of domestic stock, they have not developed (or have lost) adaptive behaviour in order to avoid predators as they are in enclosed areas and are influenced by man-enforced conditions. In leopard related incidents, although a leopard may take more than one kill in quick succession, this is not necessarily wanton for carcasses are normally cached for later consumption, and they will return to such kills even after they have become putrid. With human hunting pressure, this feeding pattern is frequently disrupted.

The leopard is killing for later consumption. English, my friend, English.

Roadpower 6 points ago +6 / -0

I'm 100% good with hunting and livestock raising for the purpose of sustainable feeding of people. I'm also or usually good with hunting when it on a species that is prolific. Hunting for what are just trophy's isn't something I would participate in or cheer on. However if the hunting is done in a way that involves some risk and involves a prolific prey, then I would just shut my yap on it.

Obviously this is a nuanced topic...
