Do you eat giraffes? Do they tear up farm stuff? Or you just shoot them for grins?

Article said they got 2000 pounds of meat. I’m guessing they are gonna eat it but I wouldn’t even begin to know what it tastes like. Maybe Ken will tell us.

Most of those type hunts the villagers get the meat.

I fail to see the entertainment value in shooting a magnificent animal like that. Now if she wants to hunt some hogs, I'm your man.

An article I read said an old bull giraffe like this one doesn't breed anymore and actually kills the younger bulls that are crucial to propagate the species.

We agree if it is not tearing my stuff up or I don’t eat it, safe by me.

Don't know why I'm jumping on this merry go round of imbeciles, but yes, reportedly he had already killed three younger breeding bulls and was sanctioned for extermination by the South African authorities. Probably not for free either.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?
