Netizens Condemn Hunter’s Son Shooting Lion

Netizens Condemn Hunter’s Son Shooting Lion


An American hunter named Allen Tarpley recently posted a picture of his seven year old son killing a lion for the first time, which received many complaints from the public. The hunter responded saying that it’s just one lion, people are overreacting. He thinks we should focus on the human abortion problem, not on dead animals. Chinese netizens condemn these actions, saying that when the hunter doesn’t need a gun to kill the animal they’ll admire him.

  • if i had a son, i would let him do this too.
    i love to shoot birds, hahahaha!
    fishing also very enjoyable!

    • A Gawd Dang Mongolian

      Birds less of a problem. Heck sometimes I shoot a gull because the bastards steal my bbq. Lions? A total waste. The meat is stringy, the fur market is nonexistent, and the trophy isn’t even worth bragging about because it’s now synonymous with ‘I have a small penis’.

      • i do not care what others say or think.
        why everyone must follow the same morality standard.
        sometimes i think these morality rules are really just bullshit.

        • donscarletti

          Plenty of men out there believe raping a woman who dates men, uncovers her face in public and goes outside alone is completely moral.

          Holding everyone to the same moral standards is what keeps you safe from them.

    So, shoot less lions, about more humans?

    • Vance

      Sadly, there are people in the world who say just that.

      • 50 million babies killed since roe v. wade; now we are finding out they are being used as body parts, which has been big business around the world (baby and adult) for 20+ years.
        Have you ever imagined how the USA would be different today if those 50 million were born?

        • Vance

          We would have 50 million additional brains contributing to society.

      I’m not sure what the hunter’s stance on abortion is when he mentioned the “abortion problem”, though I’m guessing he’s against abortions. He could believe that humans should be outraged at all the abortions being performed rather than just one lion being killed. Or maybe your comment was sarcasm, not sure.

      • Alex Dương

        I think your guess was right: “they don’t care about human beings and babies being slaughtered and body parts being sold for Planned Parenthood but they care about one animal.”

        • Mihel

          Typical case of “But other people are doing bad things too!!!1!” syndrome.

          • Alex Dương

            Ironically, I’m sure this guy is “serious” about his religion. He ought to reread Matthew 7:3-5.

          • You are insinuating that all killing is judged the same?
            …when referring to the Father being a hypocrite for approving the killing of a lion while condemning the killing of an unborn human?

          • Alex Dương

            No, I am saying that he should judge himself first before judging others: “Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.”

          • It is a very rare person who does not become defensive when their actions are questioned. Most of the hard core criminals probably think they’re great guys deep down

          I think my time in China has made me warm up to the pro-life movement a bit.

          Conservatives like to bring up “slippery slopes” all the time and mostly they’re just being obtuse, but in China you can see a bit further down the line and it’s somewhat scary.

          The pro-choice movement considers itself to be the standard bearer for women’s rights. However, in China, the cultural acceptance and convenience of abortions plays far more into men’s hands. Men who don’t like to wear a condom can persuade women to just get an abortion if things go bad, but it is the woman’s womb that endures the risk; if she is sterile as a result, he will just leave her and find a fertile woman to replace her. If she chooses to have a child however, this is her choice and the man will have far less than equal responsibility for the resulting baby.

          What I also object to is considered a surrogate to contraception. So many men don’t wear condoms and women don’t even think about the pill. Women even consider the combined oral contraceptive pill to be “dangerous” and somewhat unnatural, despite it generally being considered by researchers to have more positive than negative effects to a woman’s health. A condom’s health benefits are even more absolute and indisputable, even without STDs, semen may carry pretty much any other pathogen in your system. Abortions on the other hand, even if performed by professional surgeons in a properly equipped hospital does negatively affect a woman’s reproductive system and if performed badly can even be life threatening. I can’t quote any reliable figures, but have plenty of anecdotal evidence that despite the number of well equipped specialist gynecological hospitals in China that perform the operation, that many women have an abortion when they are young and cannot get pregnant three or four years later when they are ready.

          This all leads me to the new conclusion that every effort should be taken to assure that abortions can never be “normal”. I would suggest any surgical abortion (i.e. excluding RU-486 induced “morning after” abortions) should be followed by compulsory contraception education for the patient and any man who has had unprotected sex with her since her last period, followed by 2 months of compulsory attendance of any rabidly anti-abortion house of worship of the patient’s choice (associated men may choose a different house of worship only if the patient is unwilling to see them). Any man who’s name comes up in association with two or more different patients should be given community service or imprisoned for up to 3 months, depending on the situation.

            However, in China, the cultural acceptance and convenience of abortions plays far more into men’s hands.

            How much of this do you think came from the one child policy?

      • Mihel

        Yeah I was kidding. He sounds like a typical gun-wielding churchgoer that never does anything ethical ever but gets all upset when people commit “sins” like abortion, premarital sex or homosexuality.

    • James

      abort all you want, I don’t see anything wrong with it. But lions and all animals are our responsibility to protect.

      • jin

        Nah we protect it because we want to and not because of responsibility

      • James, I cannot think of anyone more defenseless than an unborn baby. IMO, the defenseless are the first ones who should be protected.
        Cecil the lion draws outrage, but 5000+ humans/day is ignored because it is old news?

        • James

          Well, it’s your embryo. You have to draw the line somewhere.

          • Vance

            Draw the line at the point the part in question has differing genetic information than the body it is in. An embryo has the same genetic makeup as the body it is in, therefore it is part of the body of that person. Once inseminated, The now fetus has a different genetic makeup than the woman it is in, thus it is a separate individual. If we do not draw that line here, then we can draw the line anywhere: At birth. At age 5. At 18. At 75. Wherever we want. That is dangerous considering the selfish motives of people. Abortion was first advocated here in the US, not as a woman’s right, but as a method of population control to use on Blacks to keep their numbers down. The “good guys” don’t always run things.

  • KamikaziPilot

    I can see killing wild animals for meat but for sport? It’s something I never found appealing. Just so you can take pictures with the dead animal and maybe keep his body in your living room. It’s not like it’s some big accomplishment that you killed a defenseless animal with your high powered rifle from far away. The biggest obstacle to killing one of these animals is coming up with the money needed to go on these hunts.

    • helsic

      totally agree with you

    • There are many people who simply enjoy killing…

  • dag

    It’s too bad that the hunted animals don’t have
    an even chance to kill the brave human hunters.

    Among the Masai, in Africa, to reach manhood, a boy had to kill a lion with a spear.
    There would be few “men” among American hunters if they had to use a spear.

  • Cynic-Al

    Disclaimer-I don’t support sport hunting.

    Sadly, sport hunting exists today because of the large sums of money it takes to kill a lion. I believe ~$50,000. The money is then used for conservation(supposedly) in these poor African countries. It’s the only funding conservation has in some of these countries. It’s a sad state of affairs.

    Now, for Chinese netizens to call out anyone is absurd. The reason these programs exist is BECAUSE of China and Chinese. They’ve taken their animal extinction program overseas. It seems the only animal in the world that matters is the panda. The rest don’t matter. I’m off to eat some shark fin soup with my elephant “teeth” chopsticks. After that, I’m going to ground some tiger penis into my tea and really give it to my wife.

  • Ajeje Brazov

    not just a killer for pleasure of endangered animals but also someone against abortion..

    perfect

  • jin

    Religion fucks up peoples mind and soul.

    • Bman

      True maybe, but only in some cases I think. And I wouldn’t say being nonreligious makes people better.
      We develop our morals as we live life, and there aren’t many people setting a good example.
      People who kill animals for sport are surely lower forms of life, and I’m surprised that society’s laws haven’t kept up. Put that nasty high society red neck under lock and key, please.

      • jin

        I don’t mine religious people, as long they keep their shit to themselves and not preach me about how to live my life. In this time and era we don’t need religion, it only make society more complicated and slows down progress with their mumbo jumbo antique brainwashing tool.

        • Bman

          Yes, I agree. Can’t believe in everything, surely 100 different religions at the same time.
          But I know for some people religion is a good thing. So that’s great.
          As for progress and brainwashing, definitely corporations and world leaders are trying just as hard to control our minds and bodies. Buy this garbage, work 60 hours a week, be loyal to people you’ve never met and who really don’t seem great.
          Religion I can say no to quite easily. The other things are what scare me.

          • jin

            We are never free the moment we are born, we live in a society where sometimes you don’t have a choice but to work 60hours a week, no choice but to trust or be loyal.
            We are the slaves of society.

  • Croid

    thass rite ….. we gotsa kill anythang dat could eat us or harm us in any way #leavenotargetstanding
