Zoo Hunters

Now the chances of me ever joining P.E.T.A.  are about as good as a snowball’s chance in hell, but even I think it takes a special kind of stupid to break into a zoo and kill a rhino.

It happened in France.

Apparently, poachers broke into the zoo and shot a white rhino in the head 3 times. Then they proceeded  to hack off his horns with a chainsaw. According to yahoo news, 5 members of the staff were on the grounds at the time. There are also security cameras, although conveniently enough not where the rhinos are housed. I have a sneaking suspicion that there is way more to this story than a couple of morons with a rifle and a chainsaw, but we will see where it leads. Maybe I am just suspicious by nature but it seems to me that somebody would have heard the shots and/or chainsaw. Either way deciding to poach in a zoo is extreme. Of course the motive was MONEY and people after money do all kinds of things that border on (and cross over to)  C-R-A-Z-Y-L-A-N-D.

Don’t get your panties in a twist, hunters. If you want to get up at 4 AM and freeze your butt of in a tree stand while covered in deer pee, you have at it. As long as you plan on eating the meat, I say go for it. The benefit for me is that is lessens my chance of hitting Bambi with my car.

I think I will stick to fishing since it doesn’t require me to cover my clothes in animal byproducts. However, I don’t think I will go to the aquarium with my rod and reel. It just seems wrong somehow. Plus I don’t really think I would look awesome in an orange jumpsuit and chains. Additionally, even though I might enjoy a quiet, padded room for an hour or so staying indefinitely doesn’t sound all that appealing either.
