GoDaddy CEO Kills Elephant So People Can Eat

GoDaddy.com CEO Bob Parsons under fire for Zimbabwe elephant-hunting video. Xeni Jardin, over at http://www.boingboing.net/2011/03/31/godaddy-ceo-draws-fi.html calls him an ‘asshole,’ but the reason he cites for the hunt is no different than the sort of herd control we exercise here in the US to maintain deer (and other) populations. It doesn’t hurt that the dead elephant is put to good use. I just have a problem with the bleeding hearts who value and animal’s life over that of human lives. There has always been a struggle between man and nature; it’s just that those struggles look a little different in Africa than they do here.
