    Eh, it's not like he killed a dog.

    Oh man, this guy is going to get it. My wife is a huge animal-lover, and when she read the details, even I was disgusted. Everything he did was illegal, with the guide and landowner already charged.

    Admittedly, I'm not sure how serious the punishments will be, but at the very least, he's going to have people waiting for him when he lands -- like the woman who made the horrendous joke about going to Africa.

    I honestly think what is more interesting is if he did this 20 years ago no one knows. If he did this 10 years ago, I'm guessing you could reduce the number of people reading this by 90%.

    Now? Shit. He's fucked. He's probably gotten enough people pissed that his life and career are going to be very shitty for an extended period of time.

    Some interesting comments on that thread...

    Try taking a picture with the animal when it's alive. That's a lot harder.

    Go hunt some ISIS. That's tough.

    My wife: "Seriously, why is everyone making such a huge deal about this? I don't really care. He didn't kill a person."

    I tend to agree after seeing a Facebook friend change her cover photo to the lion.

    With social media, people tend to have a hard time with keeping things in perspective. But then again, there's always enough outrage to go around.

    He's a horrible person who deserves more than what he'll get. He killed a national icon of another country. Fuck him hard.

    Not sure what that means, but it made me think of this.

    Saw a bunch of headlines saying the guy thought it was legal. Sure, people pay $50,ooo to hunt all the time. That's how deer hunting works, right?
