Otherwise, these folks going after some harmless prey with high-powered gear seem coward at best.

This is sickening and how can anyone kill and animal for a trophy or for a kill for that matter. What is wrong with human beings?
And to kill a giraffe or an endangered creature. What is the matter with our society that this is still going on?

The problem with the system is that hunters are appointed by the governor to be the wards of all wild animals. Hunters represent 3.5 % of the public, so why are they the only ones in charge of “protecting” our native wildlife? Thank goodness for those willing to expose them for what they are.

Not a real article. Lena Masri is a stooge.

Or any wild animal. This is no longer acceptable behavior. We need to protect biodiversity and broad swathes of land for the animals in order to get out of the climate change/extinction nightmare we live in and caused.

It’s in our genes.”

Hey! Someone in Texas believes in evolution! (suddenly). But still….Progress is progress.

They don’t live in the wild in Texas. They live in fences and game pens. These are all canned hunts. Real hunters don’t hunt captive animals for pay. This would be like Saddam Hussein’s sons pretending like they were tiger rescuers.
