This Video Of A ‘Hunter’ Shooting A Sleeping Lion To Death Is Absolutely Horrific (NSFW)


There’s been a lot of controversy recently about big game hunters heading out into the safari and slaughtering innocent animals for their own twisted pleasure, but this video below definitely hammers home just how awful a pastime it is to participate in.

I haven’t really got any context for this because it’s just a video posted on Twitter, but watching it pretty much sums up the absolute horror of all this. Some local tracker is taking some fat white old guy into the bush to hunt a lion and he finds one there just minding his own business and having a snooze. Obviously the fat white guy then sneaks up on it and shoots it about three times, only to be congratulated by the tracker for an excellent kill. Bleurgh.

Don’t watch this if you don’t want to see an animal die in agony btw – it really is that bad:

Man that really was an uncomfortable watch wasn’t it? The video seems to be going viral on Twitter right now with 4 million views at the time of writing, so I’m hoping that Twitter will track down this asshole and ruin his life a la that dentist that killed Cecil the Lion. We can but hope anyway.

For more of the same, check out this story about a gang of poachers that got trampled to death by elephants. Serves them right.
