To cheer at hunting accidents?

When trophy hunters die - it's good riddance, isn't it?
NameChangedForTheDay · 21/08/2019 22:56
Yep. Probably get flamed. But these people are sick and don't respect life.
huggybear · 21/08/2019 22:57
Yes, it is wrong to cheer at the loss of any life in my opinion.

Hate trophy hunters. Despise them. And they knew the risks.
Carrotcakeforbreakfast · 21/08/2019 22:58
Yep. Good riddance.
If you follow Ricky Gervais on social media he has the same opinion too.

I don't know if I'd necessarily cheer, but I will say I couldn't give a toss what happens to them. To go out and end animals' lives for a bit of fun is evil and the world would be a better place if those excuses for human beings didn't exist.
DimplesToadfoot · 21/08/2019 23:03
I don't exactly cheer, I feel sad* for all loss of life, but I do think 'karma' especially if they are killed by an animal they are trying to hunt.
*I feel much more sad for the animals that are hunted

You wouldn't honestly cheer though would you. Noone actually does. It's a silly thing to say
Like everyone else you'd probably think "oh no what a shame" and then forget about it within the hour.
EugenesAxe · 21/08/2019 23:05
Yes, they deserve all they get.
They are also another faggot on my fire of loathing for Trump; that and Greenland with its hidden oil reserves. I feel someone so evil should self-combust in an earthbound circle of Hell.
WalkersAreNotTheOnlyCrisps · 21/08/2019 23:09
Yes, I absolutely do. Someone should be along soon to hope we're all vegetarians who rejoice in the death of trophy hunters.

YANBU. The excuse of the money they pay to kill a rhino goes to conservation simply does not add up.
Toneitdown · 22/08/2019 07:04
I think it is wrong to cheer about the loss of life. But to be quietly smug that they got their Just desserts..? That's just human nature.
saaagp · 22/08/2019 07:45
YANBU. Our society is probably better off without those heartless psychopaths.
whiteroseredrose · 22/08/2019 07:47
I agree. I got deleted for saying something similar though.
barcodescanner · 22/08/2019 07:48
It makes my day. Along with matadors and bull runners getting gored. Then I just feel sad that the bull will still be killed.
origamiunicorn · 22/08/2019 07:49
Same with bull fighters, I think, "oh well" and inwardly feel a little triumph for the bull.
barryfromclareisfit · 22/08/2019 07:52
Pathetic. Your hobby-horse is more important to you than people’s lives.
myself2020 · 22/08/2019 07:52
Cheering: makes you just as bad as they are
not giving a toss: perfectly acceptable
Jammymare · 22/08/2019 08:07
For me, it depends on the type of hunting. A lot of conservation happens as a result of these people paying big money to shoot, and if that animal was selected as no longer needed for the breeding programme then I’d rather they got £20k for it by selling to an idiot with a gun, and had the money to carry on the conservation and can’t grt to worked up by it.
HeffingDream · 22/08/2019 17:57
I cannot for the life of me understand why anybody would want to shoot a rhino, or a lion... etc. That said, this video might be of interest to some of you.
If anyone can argue with this guy's first hand experience - I'd be interested to see your response.
SlightlyMisplacedSingleDad · 22/08/2019 18:03
Taking pleasure in the deaths of human beings because of their attitude to the deaths of animals? Not exactly on the moral high ground there, are you?
Hunting is vile. So is cheering the death of another human being.
ArkwrightsTill · 22/08/2019 18:05
Misread this as ‘haunting accidents’. I’ll show myself out.

My favourite was one who was trampled by elephants and then eaten by lions. Teamwork!
