I am more neutral on this too

So I am pretty neutral on this type of killing. The lion isn't about to go extinct any time. I am more concerned about the habitat being reduced. there are plenty of them where the antelope play. Realistically game management is an important part of maintaining balance in that region. Keeping the number of lions in check means that they are less likely to rely on humans for their sustenance.

There are tens of thousands of hunters that go to southern Africa for the hunt. Why is she getting singled out? I love how an online petition was started and got 13,000 signatures. I bet that there weren't more than a 100 of those signatures from South Africa.

As long as they aren't going for endangered animals, I figure the animal population specialists in that part of the world know far more about that subject than I.

I agree

It bothers me a lot more to see the way farming has become an assembly line killing service. Animals raised in little pens and then shipped to slaughter house were their last hours in life can be "unsettling"

Or even worse, the way humans treat humans. Somehow for so many people it seems alright to take advantage when possible of other peoples weaknesses, whether it's selling overpriced goods, to hiring for as cheap as possible.  That 'sucks to be them' attitude.
