They sometimes pretend, in their hypocrisy, that they're "conservationists" but look at the posed pictures. They never look sad, do they? Never.
Ricky Gervais, a professional comedian who has dabbled in poor taste, doesn't see ANYTHING funny about killing animals.
He's said so on Twitter.
He's said so on Facebook.
An irony today is that the Gervais complaint against Rebecca Francis arrived alongside another news item:
The "inconvenient truth" all over the world is that animals are being hunted to extinction, and other species simply erased by the destruction of their habitat and by climate change. And yet we have psychopathic "hunters" who hide behind the old "thinning the herd" excuse, or who claim that they only shoot animals that, oh, should be dead anyway. Presidential aspirant Mike Huckabee laughs about shooting birds out of the sky, as VP candidate Paul Ryan did. Hey, too many pretty peacocks in the air. What a lot of fun to drop ducks in mid-flight (Mike insists he shoots them because he's hungry).
Organizations promoting hunters, and tourist-kill events, have lined up behind Rebecca Francis, of course. The spin-doctoring always revs up any time there's an accusation about cruelty and the pointless slaughter of an endangered species.
Rebecca the Conservationist? No, Becky the Animal Slayer loves to kill things. She thinks it's cool.
This Mama Grizzly has murdered bears, cats, anything she can get in the sites of her no-miss rifles. Missy Francis is so proud that a little snip like her can destroy a fearsome animal five times her weight. Yep, it's easy when gun technology offers "point and shoot" weapons that are always on target. The hunter is always well out of range of the animal's teeth and claws.
Well, in the case of a giraffe, there ARE no teeth and claws.
Rebecca Francis simply gets a huge kick out of killing things. She's always smiling when she does it.
As for being a "conservationist," she's spawned 8 brats to help over-populate the planet.
Just how extreme is her bloodlust? Rebecca Francis probably gets turned on removing her used tampons, and chews on them.
She only wishes she was in Nazi Germany at the time of Dachau. Boy, those Germans missed out on a great way of raising money: bringing in tourists for organized, controlled "shoots." You know, "Shoot the Jew and Win a Prize." Like, take home a lampshade.
Rebecca would be the first to say, "Oh, I only killed the weak, starved Jews that were going to die anyway." She would've posed happily with her kill.
