      Psychopaths kill animals for fun. Trophy hunting is psychopathic behavior. People that go trophy hunting are just psychopaths that are disguised

          For every rich, out of touch, white dude trying to prove he can win his nuts back through dishonorable sport killing...Is 50 utterly shameless african sociopaths willing to slaughter a whole species and destroy his very homeland.

          Way to exploit animal cruelty to promote "racial" tension btw! ...truly awful "bit"

          Bad news+vile racial spin+comedic context= Toxic garbage w artificially colored msg sprinkles

          Dont blame races, blame the greed; of this canabalistic wealth lust...and ALWAYS watch the PACKAGE it arrives in cuz its most often your buying just this kinda fusiform plastic poison... colored in friendly crayola w a smiley token mascot guiding the way.

            What I'm wondering what is the country's doing about these hunters.

                Its not surprising that a culture that has grown up without having to fear wild animals would find the killing of animals so bizarre. There is fear and respect in the kill, something a hoard of potato chip munching cowards would never understand. Read your history books, understand what we are as a species. We are hunters and we are prey. You live far away from the fear of being hunted yourself, in the safety of sturdy wooden homes, cars so you don't have to walk the roads at night, and cities that are inhospitable to the very wildlife that could kill you, and because you are far removed from that fear you hold these dangerous beasts up on a pedestal as poor defenseless creatures. That is the most disrespectful part, and the most belittling to the animal (if you are in any way familiar with the crippling fear of wolves our societies had for centuries maybe you would look at animals with a little more respect) because if they ran in our numbers they would not do the same for you. The only thing we owe other creatures is the preservation of their habitats, because that gives them something to eat other than us. And if you think I'm wrong, and animals are really such weak pitiful creatures, I dare you to pick a country road in the dead of night and walk it to its end, and tell me if the coyotes, or mountain lions, or even a rowdy buck show you such kindness.

                  Didn't Jim Jefferies do this exact same segment last year? I remember because he and Trevor both brought up that 3% goes to the local villages, even though the money isn't supposed to be for the local economies; it's for funding the national parks. I don't get any money from my country's national park system either.

                    Whilst people may find the sentiments expressed here emotionally satisfying - I don't like the idea of killing a lion any more than most others on this thread - blindly objecting to trophy hunting simply doesn't deal with the problem on the ground of making a space for animals and their habitat, a job currently being undertaken almost entirely by hunting operations. Making space is genuinely difficult on a continent with the most rapid population growth on earth, where ignoring monetary value and designating something as 'priceless' usually means making it 'valueless', and where the alternative land uses are concrete malls, maize plantations, trees for charcoal, and cattle ranches. Greater area is given over to hunting in sub-Saharan Africa than to national parks - and I'm not talking about the small (and even most hunters agree, appalling) canned hunting operations; I'm talking massive areas of wilderness like the Selous, where the human footprint is minimal, where you don't see vehicles queuing up with hundreds of lenses sticking out of the side, where lodges don't have spas and swimming pools, and where the ecology and animal behaviour is more natural than in many of the more famous tourist hotspots. These reserves are in areas where - either because the landscape is boring, the destination too remote, the tsetse flies too bothersome, or the political atmosphere too dangerous - tourists simply don't go, and the money from trophy hunting helps maintain habitat and provide the necessary anti-poaching/bushmeat/charcoal protection required. If people don't like hunting, they are completely free to set up their own reserves in such areas, and fund all the activities that go with them in any way they choose - just like their hunting counterparts. Indeed, the more the merrier. The problem is, they don't. And that really is a problem, because railing against trophy hunting without providing a viable alternative, is simply advocating extinction.

                      It is also materially misleading of people to suggest that hunting operations kill coalition males (ie the ones with the prides). It really doesn't seem like any of the researchers for this video have actually spoken to professional hunters, or bothered to visit the operations they criticise. They may still reach the same conclusions having done so of course, which is fine, but it doesn't help their case to spread utter nonsense in the meantime; it just makes them seem like yet more colonialist Europeans and Americans lecturing Africa on why it should be an 'untamed wilderness' for their emotional benefit, and forgetting that there are actually quite a lot of people living there.

                            I think If someone wants to kill an animal like a lion ! They should do it with their barehands and see if the hunters really want to do it!! I’ll pay to see that!! 😂

                                Destabilizing Africa by a group of people and when hunger and misery is the outcome the same group sends NGOs and charities while scouting for trophy hunters of endangered animals and that same group are outraged and care about Africa's endangered animals its like a priest rapping a boy and then tacking him to therapy and helping him get over it just so he can rape him again????????

                                  Those pictures were so horrific. Killing an animal for fun is probably one of the worst things you can do- especially if they're defenseless. This is why I'm vegetarian, I hate seeing any animals dead

                                    Yawn faux moral outrage at best, simple jealousy of the wealthy at worst. I don't actually care what these people do with their time and money, yet unlike the triggered here, I am ok with admitting that.

                                              i would almost respect his argument if it wasn't so shallow. trophy hunting has in many cases proven to be beneficial to certain animal species. the white rhino for example was on the verge of extinction back in the 1970 with less than 900 left in existence. trophy hunting was opened for the species with a tag price of over 100k per animal. specific age rhinos past their sexual prime were chosen by local guides and the money raised in conjunction with better awareness help to correct the issues of rampant poaching that almost drove the species to extinction. today there are over 20,00 white rhinos in the wild based on the best estimates. when done right trophy hunting can have a positive impact on a species. by sacrificing one animal you may fund the protection of many. this concept actually exists in america as well. the pitman robertson act actually dedicates a small portion of the money made from the sale of hunting related items to conservation and this has been used to help fix the populations of the american wild turkey for example.

                                              Sources for anybody who thinks im pulling this out of my ass.
                                              warning for this last one, it's a great ready and touches on both side of the argument but there is some gruesome imagery (animals being processed, ect.)

                                                  Few things are more backward and primitive than killing an animal just for the hell of it.

                                                    Love how the comment section seems to be blaming Americans for all the decreasing animal populations in Africa. When most of it is because of the Chinese market for Ivory and other things for their bs boner pills. Poachers trying to make money from this trade are like 90% of the problem.

                                                            Also I read most of that money goes back into the parks and not villages.

It's for running the national parks and paying the salaries of wildlife biologists and park rangers. That Australian guy who's about to be cancelled did this same segment last year and he also misleadingly brought up this point.
