You think people got upset over Cecil? Imagine if this one goes viral!
So, which will upset the activists more?
The animal he hunted, or the guy in the pic?
But that isn’t what’s got this editor scratching his head.
It’s the chair.
Who brings a chair — especially one like that — along on a hunt?
Or did he catch this Outdoor Beast prowling in his backyard?
Anyone who thinks they’re just cute and cuddly beasts that ought to be left alone is missing half of the story.
Is conservation important? Sure. And we STRONGLY support responsible wildlife management.
But do not mistake these for some purring housecat.
Do you know the backstory of this beauty?
This Doug Giles original is a painting called Chuka Man-Eater. Guess why.
The Chuka man-eating tiger was a male Bengal tiger responsible for the death of three boys from Thak village in the Ladhya Valley in 1937. It was shot by Jim Corbett in April 1937 who noted that the animal had a broken canine tooth and several gunshot wounds in various parts of his body.
‘Several Gunshot Wounds’
So before anyone freaks out about this particular dead tiger — let’s find out a little more about the backstory… or STFU.
Actually, that’s a good policy for opinions on other people hunting generally.
Meanwhile, for anyone still opposed to hunting on a more fundamental level, we’ve got something for that, too.
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
