Sport/trophy hunting – the act of killing an animal just for its skin or its head to be mounted and displayed as a trophy – is an act of cowardice.
But to call for the hanging of a hunter is beyond cowardice. That is terrorism.
What if I called for Ingrid Newkirk to be hanged for all the innocent dogs and cats PETA has gassed to death Auschwitz-style? What do you think would happen to me? I would be arrested and charged for making terroristic threats, and rightfully so.
So how come that limey cunt is allowed to make terroristic threats? Because she and PETA are government operatives.
PETA is the ISIS of the animal rights world.
But by far and away the most radical reaction belonged to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
PETA called for Palmer to be charged, tried and if found guilty “preferably hanged.”
Here is the official statement from PETA co-founder and President Ingrid Newkirk:
Hunting is a coward’s pastime. If, as has been reported, this dentist and his guides lured Cecil out of the park with food so as to shoot him on private property, because shooting him in the park would have been illegal, he needs to be extradited, charged, and, preferably, hanged. To get a thrill at the cost of a life, this man gunned down a beloved lion, Cecil with a high-powered weapon. All wild animals are beloved by their own mates and infants, but to hunters like this overblown, over-privileged little man, who lack empathy, understanding, and respect for living creatures, they are merely targets to kill, decapitate, and hang up on a wall as a trophy. The photograph of this dentist, smiling over the corpse of another animal, who, like Cecil, wanted only to be left in peace, will disgust every caring soul in the world.
The statement isn’t out of character for the organization, which has earned a reputation as the one of the most radical defenders of animal rights.
