Radio,4 news item.
A Rhino hunter has been eaten by a pride of lions.
After being trampled to death by elephants.
Only things found were his skull and his trousers.
A fitting end.
Doubt it’s the way the twat would have chosen to go.

I know its not actual karma but still grin

Great news, hope he suffered terribly.

Ladygloss Sun 07-Apr-19 14:52:45

No. I am too

HarrysOwl Sun 07-Apr-19 14:53:20

Circle of life...

DragonMamma Sun 07-Apr-19 14:54:20

The hunter soon became the hunted.

No more than he deserved 😁

Oh dear how sad.

BadPennyNoBiscuit Sun 07-Apr-19 14:57:20

It must have been a lovely shirt.

RedDogsBeg Sun 07-Apr-19 14:57:36

Not sorry that I am laughing.

Natural selection at it’s finest

Purplehammer Sun 07-Apr-19 15:17:35

He never dreamed he would become the ‘lions share.’

marvellousnightforamooncup Sun 07-Apr-19 15:38:36

He deserved it.

The only thing I feel bad about here is the animals that had to eat his clothes if all they found are his trousers... Or as my oh just said there has to be a monkey in a camp tee-shirt somewhere 🙈

RedDogsBeg Sun 07-Apr-19 15:43:37

The other clothes would probably just have been shredded rather than eaten but I do like the idea of a monkey parading around in the missing T-shirt!

Bless some good news concerning animals for a change

Sagradafamiliar Sun 07-Apr-19 15:58:37

I'd never take delight in something so hideous. Bit sick really. It's one thing feeling indifferent or recognising the irony, but another to be gleeful.

katmarie Sun 07-Apr-19 16:06:37

I really cant find it in me to feel sorry for this guy at all.

polarpig Sun 07-Apr-19 16:06:46

I wouldn't go so far as to feel delight but I certainly had no fucks to give.

FissionChips Sun 07-Apr-19 16:08:03

Why not delight? He was a horrible human and the world is a better place without him.

LellowYedbetter Sun 07-Apr-19 16:08:21

Aww this has cheered me up no end :-) thanks OP!

MagnificentDelurker Sun 07-Apr-19 16:09:20

I feel the same

Jinglejanglefish Sun 07-Apr-19 16:09:47

I am gleeful, one less piece of shit human in the world.

BlackCatSleeping Sun 07-Apr-19 16:11:15

I must admit I smiled when I read this story too. I imagined it like a scene from the jungle book with all the animals working together, even though I do realize it wasn’t actually like that.

polarpig Sun 07-Apr-19 16:13:07

Why not delight? He was a horrible human and the world is a better place without him.

Because he was someone's father. Other than that, yes.

FriarTuck Sun 07-Apr-19 16:18:41

If he'd been eaten by lions while out bird-watching I'd feel bad for him. Eaten while out hunting animals, yay lions! He put himself in that position while trying to take an innocent life, I can't feel much regret. If he has family then I'll be sympathetic towards them though.
