It’s simple: we get to kill exotic animals because we are the superior species

At some point, all of the defensive posturing by trophy hunters that they are conservationists with the best interests of animals in mind really does get old and it’s time they came clean.

The truth is, they take exotic and endangered species because, frankly, they can.

Mankind long ago won the survival of the fittest. It’s human beings who developed the technology to send a high-velocity projectile from a safe distance that tears up an animal’s vital organs, eliminating the need for running, jumping, or throwing a spear.

Human beings are so much smarter, we can put exotic animals in enclosures, and wealthy people who pay enough can be carted out, set up with a rifle on a tripod, and then pull the trigger from far enough away that the animal never knows it’s coming.


We are simply superior. Animals are losers.

We take trophies. They die.

And then we celebrate with an extra order of fries. Maybe with some chili and cheese, too.
