He’s too much of an idiot to be a king

Murdering animals for pleasure is not a new hobby to Don Juan Carlos. The 74-year old monarch has 50 years of experience (almost his entire adult life) hunting elephants, bears, wolves, leopards… you name it. According to The Guardian, he paid 7.000 Euros in 2004 to shoot a European bison —one of the world’s most endangered species (approximately 1.600 left)— during a trip to Poland.
And the rest of his hunting deeds could easily fill up a second or third memoir. I’d suggest “How to Rule the Wilderness in Two Easy Steps” as a title.
Step 1: Buy it.
Step 2:Kill it.
Rann Safaris, the king’s hunting ally in Botswana, has deactivated today both itswebsite and the Facebook page, where several photographs of the king’s hunting adventure with the company had previously been posted.
But theshocking videoof their bloody trails is still spreading around the internet, like a dark shadow of what man—with money, a gun and no compassion—can do to nature, animals and, ultimately, to himself.
I still don't understand how somebody can feel "pride" by posing with a dead animals as a trophy, makes me sick.
There is this short story called, "The Most Dangerous Game" that I read back in grade school that turned me off to hunting. It applied the golden rules to a man, a hunter. He did not like it one bit, when he was the one who was to be hunted….legally. It was a really good story.
Mark, I'm so with you on this. What in the world makes someone have such pride in hunting down and killing animals for the sheer pleasure of it? This kind of thing does not make a man. : (
Good post, Mark.
I want to see a picture of his tiny penis, mounted and hung on the wall.
