I was disgusted to hear that Ron Thomson has no regrets about killing 5,000 elephants and 50 hippos. His reasoning is that he is controlling the population of these majestic animals. Who, I wonder, gave him the God-given right to eliminate these animals?
It is cowardly to sneak up on these poor creatures and blast them with powerful guns. Hunting is a disgrace and brings shame to the human species.
Just as we have a law for war criminals, we need a law for crimes against animal species. Human beings crave for peace and despair at the violence that engulfs them and yet they are completely blase about killing animals. This violence
rebounds on us and hangs on us like a immovable cloud of negativity which deprives us of the peace we desperately seek.
