On the Dallas Safari Club’s Insulting Claim that Rhino Hunt is Motivated by Altruism

A monstrous serial killer named Corey Knowlton has paid $350,000 for a license to kill a black rhinoceros in Namibia.

According to News Corp Australia, “Knowlton purchased the controversial permit — auctioned off at a Dallas Safari Club event … from the Namibian government to hunt an endangered black rhino. The event was framed as a fundraiser, with organisers claiming the proceeds would be used for preservation of the magnificent, endangered species. It was claimed that the rhino that would be hunted via this permit was an old, post-breeding bull.”

As was reported by ABC News and other media outlets, Dallas Safari Club Executive Director Ben Carter has said, “First and foremost, this is about saving the black rhino … There is a biological reason for this hunt, and it’s based on a fundamental premise of modern wildlife management: populations matter; individuals don’t. By removing counterproductive individuals from a herd, rhino populations can actually grow.”

Carter’s offensive claim that the plan to murder the targeted rhino is motivated by altruism is as insulting as it is self-serving.

The Dallas Safari Club’s mission statement reads, in part: “Our conservation and education efforts today ensure that future generations will enjoy watching and hunting wildlife tomorrow.”

In other words, this isn’t about rhinos. It’s about the bloodlust-full monsters among us who take pleasure in visiting death on other species.

Those worthless degenerates are catered to by despicable groups like The Hunting Consortium, whose loathsome mission “is to provide our clients with access to the best hunting areas available for the species they seek.”

Not surprisingly, The Hunting Consortium employs the targeted rhino’s self-appointed executioner, Knowlton, as an “associate hunting consultant.”

In his bio on The Hunting Consortium’s website, Knowlton boasts that he “has hunted widely on 6 continents taking more than 120 species.”

You’ll notice that Knowlton used the word “taking,” and not the word “giving.” And that’s because none of that killing was motivated by altruism, no matter how much the savage class wants us to believe otherwise.

And those same cowards — the ones with the bloodstained hands — have the audacity to whine about death threats.

The Dallas-Fort Worth CBS affiliate KTVT has reported that Knowlton “is now surrounded by full-time security, because of threats made against him and the Dallas Safari Club.”

Perhaps those threats were simply impassioned albeit ill-conceived attempts to point out, for argument’s sake, that rhinos and other nonhuman species would benefit from Knowlton and his barbaric ilk being hunted.
