Cecil the lion's son Xanda also killed

Recommended Posts

How I hate these evil cowards who kill animals for sport.  What "heroes" these blood-thirsty evil hunters are - using guns to kill majestic beautiful animals.  :mad::cries:

Cecil the lion’s son has ‘met the same fate’ — killed in a trophy hunt in Zimbabwe, reports say

The son of Cecil the lion — Zimbabwe’s beloved big cat, whose death at the hands of an American trophy hunter triggered widespread outrage two summers ago — has been killed as well, according to reports.

The Facebook group Lions of Hwange National Park said Thursday that Xanda, who was 6 and had several cubs, was fatally shot several days ago by another trophy hunter in Zimbabwe.

“We can’t believe that now, 2 years since Cecil was killed, that his oldest Cub Xanda has met the same fate,” it said. “When will the Lions of Hwange National Park be left to live out their years as wild born free lions should?”

The group said Xanda was killed during a hunt organized by Richard Cooke Safaris, which did not respond to a request for comment. Officials at the Hwange National Park have not yet confirmed the reports.

Cecil the lion was killed in nearly the same location in 2015. The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said the 13-year-old black-maned lion was lured out of the national park and shot with a compound bow before being finished off with a rifle. His slaying provoked international outrage and intensified calls for bringing an end to trophy hunting in Africa.

They said they hoped the attention would lead to improved conservation science — including the purchase of additional satellite collars.

Xanda, Cecil’s son, had been wearing one of those collars since October, according to the Telegraph. One of the lion researchers, Andrew Loveridge, told the newspaper that Xanda’s pride had in recent months been spending time outside of the national park, where hunting is not illegal.

You know what? Whenever I see reports about vile disgusting pieces of crap called hunters or rather poachers being mauled to death by the very beasts they thought they could kill, I am not sorry one bit for those vile human cowards. It must be a very painful death being mauled by a wild powerful strong animal, especially when said powerful wild animal does not go for the jugular straight away...

Men and their stinky guns, a psychological projection as an extension of the dick they'd wish they had and never will have. Relatively easy to terminate the life of a wild cat or an elephant or any bigger than the average human wild beast with the help of a big round of bullets. If these cowards had to face wild animals without the use of a cheating weapon they wouldn't last 10 seconds.

Yes !  Same with all of those "heroes"  who post photos of themselves everywhere with the corpses of Lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, giraffes etc that they have shot.  Disgusting cowards.  

The only fair "hunt"  is to take away the weapons.  Let's see how they fare then. Truly though, what is the fun or satisfaction in killing an animal for sport. :mad: Sick evil bastards.
