The other side of wildlife

Some of you might have seen these pics before, this is the other side of being wild, but also the other side of us humans too.


One of the cammers asked me to post it

Unfornunately, yes it is true! Another name for it is Canned Hunting. The depth of human cruelty is abominal... Another problem with these Big Game ranches is disease. They bring in African big game such as Impala and Wildebeest (and all other big game--lions, tigers, etc.) which sometimes escape and spread disease to our native Elk, Antelopes, Bison, and even cattle. Terrible for all the animals... I am so against the exotic animal trade...

Bless You for all the work you do on this site and all those at Nkoroho!!!

How terribly sad these photos are... Thank you for reminding us that all is not well in the world... Poverty may play a roll in this but many humans are just cruel. The United States is one of the wealthiest countries in the world yet we have many who abuse, maim, and kill animals and even children for no reason. We even have horrid game ranches with American and African Big Game where rich people go to shoot a baited and drugged animal---just to say they did. It can now be done from the comfort of your computer chair with a mouse button. The animals are baited to a specific area, drugged, and shot by real guns controlled by computers. The Humane Society is working diligently to make it illegal so I contribute to them.

Praying For A Better, More Humane World,

Powerful pictures Cerinthe.

Unfortunately scenes like these are encountered from time to time in Africa (fortunately not in South Africa though). There are laws, but seldom enforced and in an impoverished nation people will do anything for a quick buck at the expense of a helpless animal.

As long as greed, corruption and poverty exist in Africa, scenes such as these will be found and very little can be done to stop it.

Hi Ceri,

where were the photos taken? Are there no laws against that?
