Legal Hunting- a barbaric sport

Whilst reading the paper recently, I was disgusted to discover about animal hunting occurring in South Africa.

Private preserves in SA claim to offer controlled animal hunting. The variety of animals on offer is staggering, from buffalos to the endangered lion.

The idea that this barbaric crime is happening in modern day time is pretty sickening, but to see photos of ‘hunters’ and their kill on social networking site is a new low.

Why people think it’s acceptable to shoot innocent and vulnerable animals for pleasure infuriates me.

To make matters worse and to really make you question your faith in humanity, is the recent coverage of the black rhino permit sold in the US.

The permit to hunt and kill an endangered black Rhino in Namibia sold in the US for 350,000 dollars, supposedly supporting the conservation for other species.

All these recent media covering of animal hunting’s has made me question the future of these beautiful creatures whilst confirming that something drastic needs to happen. Not just for the future of the animals but also for humanity by stomping out the filth who view these acts as acceptable.

  1. Well done Charlotte – you are blogging regularly and posting some great pics (do you link to an instagram account as well?). Your words are good, but a little vague – for instance, why not research and suggest the types of hotels in the country you talk about for Iceland? Your hunting piece is a little vague – take some time to do some research for yourself, sparked off by a newspaper article, so you can write something stronger, with a point.
