Good evening friends.
Sammy & Family pays our respects to the beloved lion Cecil, who was heinously killed about two days ago in Zimbabwe. The heartless murderer was Dr. Walter Palmer is who a dentist from Minnesota. Dr. Palmer paid $55,000, yes, 55k to track down Cecil and kill him with a bow and arrow. Cecil was a protected lion in Hwange National Park which apparently Dr. Walter Palmer lured her out of with dead meats where Cecil then became exposed.
Now before we get into this whole story of Cecil and trophy hunting, or any hunting for that matter, I wanted to just cover a few things. I never got the memo that said people can play God or Mother Nature with respect to what animals live and which animals die, and by what numbers. Another thing I have said many times is, the only thing is means that people are smarter then animals, is that people are smarter then animals. It doesn’t mean anything else. The same is to say if someone is smarter than me, does that give the right to punch me or something ?
Let me break down what “Hunting for Sport” means and doesn’t mean. You see the term in itself is inaccurate because the word; “Sport’ is in it. Now last I checked in sports you need two consenting parties to agree to go up against one another. So lets eradicate the word “Sport” because I am 100 percent certain that animals do not want to participate in this sport. So that leaves us with downright murder. To me all hunting is murder. But for the purposes of this post lets isolate Trophy hunting. Wait, you know, lets add “Canned Hunting” as well into this post. Canned hunting is when facilitates keep exotic and majestic animals in a confined area to make sure the hunters get their kill. Possibly the most abusive form of murder in all of hunting.
Back to Dr. Walter Palmer, the dentist from Minnesota. To him Cecil was just another kill. He was an avid hunter and murdered approximately 50 majestic animals over the years. It appears this murder of Cecil might have been illegal. Cecil was in a protected park and it believe that Dr. Palmer lured her out of the protection zone she can become an eligible kill. What a classy guy, huh ? A real gentleman. He has stated it was a legal kill but it looks like it might Not have been.
Now that brings me to this word called “Semantics” — The fact that a kill is legal or illegal does not change the reality of your action, you still committed a murder. The defenseless animal has no idea about the laws, he just knows he is painfully dying now with no regard for his life. The same is to say it’s legal to walk around calling people _ssholes all day, but its now right, so we don’t. But brutally killing and Maiming animals if its legal, no problem, bring it on like football, just another American Pastime.
Many of you know I did a video message called; “The Second Amendment from the Perspective of Animal” on You-tube. The link will be at bottom of this post. And without getting into the political debate about guns, let me point out that animals are not mentioned in The Second Amendment but they sure are taking the brunt of it by far over anyone else. Most people hide behind The Second Amendment’s original meaning to engage in the thrill of the kill of animals. Video link is below to hear more.
If you listen to this message, you will Never be confused about why this country and other countries of course are so obsessed with guns. If you think its the whole “The Right to Bear Arms” to protect yourself, you are standing upside down. That is Not even close to the real reason, not even close. If you want to know further, please watch and listen to that video message below.
Now unfortunately, Dr. Walter Palmer is just one of thousands of people who enjoy killing beautiful creatures. So does this media frenzy against this Dr. Palmer, the dastardly murderer prevent others from this deplorable pastime, ? I honestly am not sure. Does it prevent these murderers from smiling in pictures with their cowardly kills ? Hell yeah. But does that really help the animals, not in my opinion, people will just do it smarter and quieter.
We are in the year 2015, the evidence on animals being sentient beings is a fact and has been clear for a long time now. If people are still out there like the Dr. Palmers, and the Ted Nugents knowing this, they’re bad people. Its simple math. When I was on Wall Street for many years i had seen several people pay to go kill bears in Canada and or Alaska. I mean think of how bored you must be with your life if you need to do that. Maybe they should make a change in their life, or get a new wife. But for God sake man, for the love of God, stop killing these animals. Mother Nature is tough enough on them. The last thing animals need is for “Man” to keep stacking the deck even further against them.
I must even say I recently saw an interview with Tom Brokaw who was plugging his news book. Yes, Tom Brokaw the legendary news anchorman. During the interview he spoke so cavalierly about him and his hunting buddies, and who had a good shot and who did not. Like just a couple of guys laughing, drinking beers and blowing animals heads off. So despite Tom’s stature and all his elegance, Sammy & Family kind of sees him like others mentioned in this post. I’m sure in the minority in that opinion, but we’re OK with that.
Remember friends, this land is their land, this land is our land, this land is made for them and us. Together we stand, divided we fall. The path to a better world flows through the humane treatment of all animals. Animal equality is a tireless journey, there will be no retreat. Below are 3 video and or audio links I did in regards to a lot of what’s mentioned in this post.
Rest in Peace Cecil. No lives will go in vain, no pain will go unnoticed. Amen. Dr. Harp Seal for Sammy & Family. Videos and Audios below.
