If you have yet to hear of Kendall Jones, the blonde cheer leader chick from Texas, google her name or look her up on Facebook. You'll find images of a pretty little blonde piece straddling dead lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos (stunned)etc. now I'm not against hunting, Idon't do it myself but I reckon popping off foxes, rabbits, deer and other feral animals is a good thing. I just don't get a thrill out of killing things, except fish to eat, I like fishing. Personally I reckon she has missed her calling she would be a smoking porn star, now that is something I'd like to see..... Her straddling some other chick in a porn flick.......I digress. Anyway, the outrage these images have created is massive, she would have to be one the most hated humans on the planet right now, and I'm with them. I just don't understand why someone would get a kick out of killing any animal let alone a rare, threatened or endangered species. She has also a heap of supporters many coming from the red neck states in the US, and it is obvious that now some publicist is looking after her social media as her posts are more professional in reponse to the massive backlash she is receiving. She is not breaking any laws, she pays for the right to kill these animals, but does that make it all OK? She says she is helping the conservation effort, and feeding the locals with elephant etc but the amount she would have spent, getting to Africa, buying the right to kill (which is apparently upwards of 30k US an animal )she could have fed the locals for a year and protected the game without slaughtering them and posting her exploits all over the net.
If you agree, sign the petitions going around on the web, let's shut this bitch down.

If her old man taught her to kill things for a trophy and not only for food he is a wanker.
If she is straddling these things and not rooting them she is a tease, not a slut
She deserves all the abuse cause young impressionable kids take notice of what hot chicks do. She is promoting it and getting publicity cause she adds sex factor to it. Fuck her give her heaps I reckon

What blows me away is the double standards swellnet has, I was recently told of for calling a girl in a patagonia wetsuit a cute morsel or something or other can't remember and stu deleted it, but here we have this girl being called a slut, but that's okay? Perhaps their(moderators) reaction would be different if she was posing in a patagonion wettie or jacket.

Trophy photos of any dead animal IMO are disgusting. Look at me, I'm a brave and fearless hunter, apex predator, don't mess with me. And to the young woman from Texas and especially her parents who are most likely funding this carnage, stop killing animals and take up tenpin bowling, feel free to take as many photos as you like.

I go shooting a little bit..mainly foxes, rabbit, pigeons.we sometimes pop off a few roos every now and then. If their numbers are getting up,the odd quail. With the bigger stuff(roos, deer) I only let the guys shoot them if they are prepared to skin/gut and eat it.
I have seen in Zimbabwe I think? that hunting the major animals is a kind of conservationism. They only allowed to shoot in the parks and the money goes into assuring the species survives. I can get that with lions etc to a point but the zebras and stuff is a bit redneck/trophy kind of dumb.

There is a good doco. Louis Theroux ,In South Africa, Interveiws the trophy hunters with their trophy wives, Kendall is a trophy daughter I suppose.www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkZYjlA-iFI

I can understand to a point trophy hunting being used to fund fixing the environment, but nothing sound sincere coming out of an Africana's mouth.

From what I have seen of the trophy hunting in S.A. it's nothing to be proud of, they are lead by the hand , the guide does all the work, may as well be shooting caged animals.

Have you ever seen videos of pro surfers (or any other tourists) on the J Bay leg cuddling lion cubs ?
That older surf film Drive thru Africa has a similar scene in it. Those cute little lion cubs grow into large confused habituated lions who are sold off to be hunted. It's called 'canned hunting'. And these cashed up rednecks like Kendall Jones are guided to these lions who used to be cuddled by tourists and destroyed at relatively close range.
Hunting aficionados will contest that canned hunting provides finances to local african communities and conservation but so would responsible Eco-tourism.
As well as signing any online petition, if you know anyone going to surf anywhere in Sth Africa, please discourage them visiting any places that offer lion cub patting as they will only be supporting the Kendall Jones' of this world.

Well it blows me away I even have to explain this. But anyway..

You were abusive of Angie, who was the subject of the story and as such it was extremely likely to be read by her and her family and friends. In this instance Udo was abusive of someone who will never, ever read Swellnet. Not the choice of words I'd use but not illegal either.

Sorry stu just have a bit of a dig at you. So anyway, as you know I'm a bit thick so let's clear this up. It's okay to call women sluts and other degrading names on swellnet, I would imagine calling gays poofters and dykes is acceptable, cool cause when I went to school if you were gay you were happy , but not happy to bend over for another man, I assume racial abuse would be okay provided it is not personnel?

I still don't think I was abusive to that girl, perhaps you could bring it up with her name deleted again as I can't remember what I wrote,maybe sarcastic but not abusive, if it was abusive I'd make a full apology.

I'm the scab you keep picking off and is there again the next day.

Just because she will never ever read swellnet doesn't make it right.... I could hypothetically be pro game hunting, take offence, and post her a link.....
Call her an idiot, a fool, a puppet, heartless...... But not a slut, or a potential porn star.....
Another issue is the legality of hunting..... Even though I despise what she promotes, if it is legal where she is doing it, then anger should be directed at the powers that be...

I read back through Stu's comment and the code of conduct... Heavily legally oriented. Otherwise, seems to be crowd regulated, which seems to work out over time. Shaun you did pop straight into mind though and I still wonder though if/where a line would be drawn.

BTW, has anyone bothered to find out what the communities where this happens think, before signing a petition? Shaun, Bourne, Shaun Bourne you tend to be the most outspoken on here about black communities, maybe even through 1st hand experience?

Who is holier than thou here? I've got my 'shit sorted out' sounds like you might need to sort out yours. "porn fantisising, BLOKES?" So what if a 'Bloke' has fantasy's isn't it normal? Plenty of women do as well. Me saying she would suit porn isn't turning anything into a 'sicko fantasy'. Plenty of porn stars are proud of what they do, and so they should be, they provide 'BLOKES' (and plenty of women I might add) with entertainment. I'm just saying it would be a better way to spend her time ie gain a profile and make money than shooting endangered animals and posing over their corpses.
@Sheepdog she has received allot worse abuse etc on her facebook page than anything SN would ever allow here, and yeah like I said in the original post she is acting within the law, taking advantage of the laws of poor third world countries.
Obviously, I don't live in these communities, but as I have previously mentioned, the huge amount of money she outlays to get to Africa and go hunting may be able to feed these villages for a year.
The image of this girl beaming a huge smile, holding a rifle while straddling a dead lion is sickening, to me anyway.
The petitions may all be done by now, the original post was from early July.

Salt, I've got no issue with "porn".... In fact, "The devil in Miss Jones" was a classic....
I'm talking potential for defamation etc.... In this new age of political correctness gone mad, calling, or endorsing the calling of a woman a slut could be risky...
I didn't ask for the world to be this way, salt..... It's just the way it is....,.
So call her an idiot, or a disgrace.... But be careful when insults can be taken as misogynistic or sexist......

I'd love to see if she keeps that big, stupid shit-eating Texas grin if the animals she purports to be conserving (through her hunting) were given the same terms. i.e she was fenced in, drugged and unarmed.

I hate the bitch and everything she stands for.

Half taking the piss, but part of me doesn't like her and anybody else who kills for fun, sport or some mental deficiency.

I don't like seeing animals used for human entertainmnet which puts me at odds quite often here where the Japanese think it's hilarious to dress up a monkey or some other animal while people are screaming at it and it's clearly shitting itself. It saddens me. I don't like Zoos either, no matter how hard they try to replicate the natural environment, they're still caged and to see an animal pacing back and forwards on it's slow march into insanity boils my blood. Aquariums aren't much better.

Yesterday was so sad to see the two horses in the Melbourne cup die. I don't have to go into the details but I have always hated horse racing- pushing these magnificent animals to the brink of endurance for entertainment and profit. I will never bet on a horse race and haven't done so for probably 20 years. I find the screaming crowd probably one rung up the ladder to those that enjoy dog fights.

I love fishing and occaisionally will take a fish for the table. I'm pretty much catch and release though. I'm not sure how that sits? Do the fish register pain? I once lost a lure to a good size Mangrove Jack up in Port Douglas and half an hour later, got him again and my other lure back (true story) so I can't think catch and release is too bad. There's a fishing show here where these hot chicks (Egi para- don't know what that means) accompany some old middle aged expert and catch fish and these chicks think it's funny to hold the fish out of the water for ages, and make them lip-synch to some stupid banal kidergarten voice. It makes me want to smash the tv. For fucks sake girls, they faught hard, have some respect and return them gently to the water with thanks and love, not make them suffer because you think you're being cute and funny.

I am not anti hunting but only if it's for food or to control feral animals, I am against the taking of animals for trophys. I'm also not a vegetarian but I would (naively) like to think the meat I choose to eat has been killed humanely.

A few years ago I found a little dumped kitten on the beach in the middle of nowhere. Took her home and now she's our cat. Love her to bits. She's free to leave anytime she wants but I'm happy she chooses to stick around.

Look, Kendall is probably a nice person as most Americans in my experience are but if it's true that she's angling for her own reality tv show as a result of her hunting exploits, well I stand by the 'I hate everything she stands for' comment I made. All animals in my eyes are beautiful and we should love them, respect them and most importantly thank them for sustaining us.

And right on cue, a tv show showing a baying crowd screaming at a Tosa dog fight back in the Edo period where the fight was always to the death. How far we've come. haha!

PS Great to hear from you, don't be a stranger.

Maybe true Shaun, but you're attributing a human emotion to an animal that would have no concept of human feeling or conscientiousness. Kinda like saying my dog loves me. Dogs, cats etc may have an attachment but do they really 'love' you in the human sense?

Anyway, got my lure back and let 'Ol Man Jack go to fight another day. He seemed ok from his ordeal.
