Callous or Caring? Hunter Shoots Endangered Black Rhino

American citizen Corey Knowlton tracked down and killed an endangered black Rhino in Namibia Africa, CNN reports.

Knowlton argues that he killed the older rhino bull because it was a threat to the younger male population and that the money it cost for the permit — $350,000 — will go toward anti-poaching efforts to protect the endangered herd.

Not surprisingly, animal rights activists argue that it was an unnecessary trophy hunt. In any case, how do you see it?

    Typical armchair anti hunting animal rights people only hear and see what they want to.
    $350, 000.00 for anti poaching of the black rhino in Namibia what have they contributed ?
    The rhino was going to be killed anyway now there is $350, 000.00 for equipment to help the Namibia government fight poaching of the black rhino in their country. Majority of hunters are the true conservationists.

    It is what it is. Tough Love! The dope smoking hippie leftists want to save the world with love. Well, sorry…..some times tough love is what is needed. For the herd to thrive, the older bull has to go. And what a benefit for the anti-poaching arena! Hmm….a doubly good thing! Who would have thunk it? $350,000 will go along way there.

      And they should pay attention to what the Namibian authorities had to say on the matter before jumping off that springboard!
