Alligator Executed After Encounter with Florida Woman

Animals almost always lose. It’s the maddening reality that motivated me to launch this blog in the first place. The latest example of humankind’s arrogant expectation that other species play by our absurd rules involves a Florida woman who nearly lost one of her hands to an alligator when she reached into the water to retrieve a […]

One Murderer Kills Another’s Would-Be Victim

A greedy murderer in northeastern England is whining that one of her would-be victims was mortally wounded by a sadistic interloper. According to The Press, “Joe Beckett, who farms near Marton, discovered one of her sheep with gunshots [sic] wounds early on Tuesday morning. … Its injuries were so severe it had to be euthanised.” “As farmers […]

Rich Square, North Carolina, Where Heroes are Monsters

“Saving lives through slaughter,” the slogan I attached in 2013 to the Holley Fire Department, in Orleans County, New York, will also work for the fire department in Rich Square, North Carolina. On Saturday, April 9, Neanderthals from that company will host a fundraising event in which participating savages kill turkeys for the chance to win $500. Last […]

Make Bear Hunters Fight Other Terrorists

What follows is on open letter to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Gov. Christie, On Tuesday, you once again voiced support for your bloodstained state’s annual bear hunt, declaring on Eric Scott’s WKXW (New Jersey 101.5) show Ask the Governor that “bears are everywhere” and “this is a really bad problem.” Not surprisingly, you echoed the bogus […]

“Gopher Fest,” Killing Contests, and the Defiant Culture of Savagery

Like “Squirrel Slam,” an annual killing contest in Holley, New York, in which participants slaughter as many squirrels as they can for the chance to win guns and cash, “Gopher Fest” encourages the same kind of savage behavior among residents of Lima, Montana. Each is billed as a fundraiser — the former for the local fire department, […]

Hunter Being Killed by Elephant Was Not a Tragedy

On Wednesday, an individual named Graydon posted a response to a commentary I published here nearly three years ago headlined “Hunter Killed by Buffalo in Zimbabwe.” “Hunters who obey the laws, who are the vast, vast majority, are in fact helping more animals than they kill,” Graydon wrote. That, of course, is a nonsensical, self-serving rationalization […]

“Wildlife Management,” As Sickening a Euphemism as There Is

A loathsome knuckle-dragger named Ian Clark took to the pages of the Belfast Telegraph on Tuesday to whine about “animal rights extremists,” and, not surprisingly, to betray his own monstrousness. “The animal rights extremists are beginning their annual spring rant about shooting — full of the tired old cliches about how cruel it is to kill things and equally […]

Hunter-Education Instructor Grooms Generations of Serial Killers

For 50 years, Leonard Howke has been teaching young people how to kill without hurting themselves or other humans. Howke is a 72-year-old Whitefish, Montana, resident who, along with other degenerate lowlifes, was recently honored by the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks agency for his half-century of volunteerism. The Daily Inter Lake, a Kalispell-based newspaper, saw fit […]

“Squirrel Slam”: The Holleycaust Continues

As I write this, numerous barbarians in Holley, New York, are on a killing spree, each slaughtering as many squirrels as he or she can for the chance to win cash and guns. They do it every year as participants in a killing contest called “Squirrel Slam,” a fundraiser for the local fire department, whose slogan might as […]

Stuffing Chris Christie Into a Gestation Crate

“When we first starting working together,” my therapist said, “you were the angriest person I’d ever met.” Somehow, it pleased me to hear that. “You’ve made amazing progress over the past decade and a half,” she said, “but today, I sense an old, familiar rage.” I sipped my agave-nectar-laced tea and waited for her to […]
