Former Philippine Governor Kills Lion For Birthday

No it’s not just Melissa Bachman. Where you usually find one roach there are many others. South Africa continues to let tourists hunt and kill lions and other animals in the name of fun. South Africa, despite the silly little “ban Melissa Bachman” petition, is the real problem – without enforcement of protection and their willingness to both turn a blind eye and continual allowance of this is the real issue. South Africa should be boycotted and, in my opinion, have massive trade sanctions levied against it. South Africa is now on my short list, right there along with China.

Here is another piece of shit that needs to have an accident. Dick (Cheney), where are you?

MANILA (UPDATED) — Photos of former Ilocos Sur Governor Luis “Chavit” Singson with a lion he shot dead during a hunting expedition in South Africa are drawing flak online.

The photos, which were initially published in June on the website of the Philippine Times of Southern Nevada, show Singson posing beside a male lion and an antelope that he shot at the Kalahari Desert as he celebrated his birthday.

According to the report, Singson went to the Kalahari Desert, which extends 900,000 square kilometers and covers much of Botswana and parts of Namibia and South Africa, to hunt wild animals.

Singson, like all other hunters, waited for about a year to get his shooting license, it said.
“His hunting rifle took down a male lion and an antelope, highly valued targets. Needless to say, he couldn’t be happier. His feats were celebrated in his birthday bash in Spear Safari, also in the savannah. An image of his prized catch is printed onto his cake, making the celebration go down in history as one of the most memorable,” the report said.

On micro-blogging site Twitter, some netizens reacted negatively to the photos
