    I'm not for it, but is what it is.

    Everyone is crying because of this one auction in the US, but Namibia has five auctions per year to kill a black rhino. The only ones making a spectacle is the media.

    It's a non-breeding bull, not contributing to the perpetuation of the species but eating just as much as a rhino that does.....not a big deal...it's going to die anyway...so if his death helps the species pay it's way in this hard world, it's a no-brainer....

    I heard you could hunt poachers for free. That might be better. :up: Later,

    Except for the supposed death threats because of the auction.

    ''despite their insistence that the auction's proceeds would go toward conservation efforts.''

    If you believe this give me a call, I have a bridge for sale.

    Since we are dealing with an African government, there is a distinct possibility that this rhino will turn into some despots new Rolls Royce....However it's a sad fact that if African wildlife doesn't pay it's own way...there won't be any African wildlife...

    I'm getting a good idea of what it takes to manage a herd of large critters by my work with Bison. Even though they are magnificent animals in their own right, they still have to pay their way....

    Very well said from a guy, (you), who's been there and got the T shirt. This is a tempest in a teapot. These groups, PETA, GLAAD, what have you. Or in this case HSUS, sit around waiting to be offended.
    Their standard press releases are in a drawer needing only the names of offenders to be filled in before they fire them off to the media. Which of course if it bleeds it leads, they broadcast it.
    I have to wonder if that guy who brought his kids all the way from Atlanta eats store bought meat.
    Meat which never had the chance this rhino or your Bison have.

    And btw let us not mistake HSUS from your local Humane Societies. They do great work. We just adopted a pup from one in Oxford, MS of all places.

    I am for it, not just because it will give the greenies an upset tummy.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    This is purely (OK all y'all here that don't like this word cover your eyes) LIBTARD!!! This is Libtard at its best, libtard to the MAX!!! The damn thing is dying. The government of the country needs the money to further wildlife conservation. What pray tell is the problem here? This is not a bunch of Poachers. This is being done by people trying to manage the country's wildlife, not shoot them into extinction. I remember when Aligator hunting was first re-instated here in Texas. At first, it was slow and only a relative few permints were issued. Then boom, we turned around and aligators were becoming so numerous they were and are still a nuisance. I'm not saying that this is the same type example as the alligator, but it's similar in that when they first opened hunting of them back here in Texas there were very limited permits and size limitations were strict. They aren't opening the hunting of the black rhino up to the masses.

    This sounds like the Have Nots, crying because only the haves can have a shot at hunting this animal to me.

    Please do not tell my young bride that,

    '' .... old, male and nonbreeding -- was becoming aggressive and threatening other wildlife.''

    is a good excuse to auction me off.:yikes:
