                Y'all, however you feel about hunters and hunting big game, the guy from everything I've read truly didn't know he was hunting a well-known animal.

                He was going on what he was told by his guides. He doesn't deserve the death threats he and his family have received.

                  I get where you're coming from, Patti, but how much attention would it have taken to see that this was a collared animal? And that maybe he should have questioned that?? I'm not buying the whole ignorance plea. I have no tolerance for trophy hunting. Either eat what you shoot, or take your trophy with a camera and leave it for others to enjoy.

                    You may be right Kristy. We hunt deer for food (we live in deer central in SW Ga., they are everywhere) and always eat what we kill. Venison in our freezer replaces ground beef in all our recipes.

                    Big game trophy hunting is nothing we have any interest in. I just think there are 3 sides to every story. Was the lion's mane covering the collar (if he had a mane) or was it visible and he shot it anyway? And they don't put ear tags on the protected ones, like they mark cattle over here? An ear tag would have made it extremely obvious.
                    It is a tragic thing that happened, but threatening his family crosses the line in my opinion.

                      We had a guy at work that went bow hunting and killed a small deer - when he found the deer it had a collar on it. Yes we gave him hell for a long time.

                        Yeah, bein' a hunter and having herd all this before I was gonna just stay out....But....Here's the thing....Those big-game hunters (of which I have no interest) are paying about $50 Grand to go over there and hunt. The whole trophy hunt thing goes against everything I was raised up to believe about killin', but it IS legal. And a big portion of that money goes towards conservation. On a different scale, look at places like Arkansas and Georgia. Deer are absolutely EVERYWHERE. We have over a million of 'em in Arkansas and every single season there is a "record harvest." Still, we have many vehicle-deer collisions. Can you imagine how bad it would be if not for hunters taking out so many each season?

                        Plus, the money spent on licenses keeps the doors open at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, which in turn stocks fish in our lakes, runs fish hatcheries, provides Wildlife Management Areas (WMA's), etc.

                        I hate that the guy killed ol' Cecil the Lion, but, on the other hand, if I WAS lion huntin', and encountered a big ol' male lion at close range, I don't think I'd be takin' too much time to examine him for any special markings. I'd be too busy tryin' to make certain I made my one shot count so as not to get killed by him. Of course, all that is predicated by "IF I WAS LION HUNTIN'", which I most certainly will NOT be doing.

                        I was raised to follow this simple rule: Only kill something if you plan to eat it, or if it plans to eat (or kill) you.

                        I get a kick out of these big city boys that come to places like Arkansas, Alabama, Kansas, etc. on Trophy Whitetail Deer hunts. They pay guides that have essentially fenced in deer in 1000-acre pens, and fed them year-round. These deer follow very predictable trails. Then they set up Mr Rich Guy and he gets to kill a monster buck. They skin and butcher it for him AFTER getting it out of the woods for him. He then pays a taxidermist to mount his trophy deer, and has it shipped to his office in Chicago where he proudly displays it to give the impression that he is some kind of apex predator. In reality, he couldn't whup his way out of a wet paper sack. LOL! ! ! !

                        Rest in Peace, Cecil.
