Photographing big cats at night.

Does anyone else have an issue with nighttime flash photography of wild animals.  These animals may be blind for several minutes. Hunts may be disturbed.  Etc.  To me this is now promoting a terrible practice.  But petapixel made no mention of this issues.  I brought it up in their comments but have no responses.

I rarely photograph wildlife, but I don't think using a flash on a nocturnal animal is a benign process.
