Melissa Bachman Murders Endangered African Lion for Sport & Fun

Melissa Bachman is a huntress, slayer of defenseless animals and seems to enjoy it a little more than most. The Minnesota-based television personality and big-game hunter’s photo of herself posing with an African lion she’d killed in South Africa goes viral just as conservationists warn that the big cats could be gone from the wild in the next decade. 75 percent of the wild lion population has been killed just in the past 20 years and if we don’t stop, the only lions left will be the ones in cages at the zoos.

Lion hunting is not illegal in Africa, so Melissa Bachman, traveled her animal killing for sport happy ass to Africa to hunt and kill one of the world’s most endangered and majestic species, the lion, just because she could. Then there was the awesome photo op because obviously it takes a lot of sport to hunt and kill an unarmed animal. She was smiling so big you would think she won the lottery.

There are only 30,000 lions remaining in the wild, these majestic big cats are vanishing from the African landscape. Habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict are the main reason, but trophy hunting by assholes like Bachman is responsible for the slaughter of 600 lions each year. Nearly 60 percent of all those slain kings of the jungle are killed for sport and shipped to the United States of America to set in someone’s trophy room. This is able to happen because the U.S. Endangered Species Act does NOT protect the African lion.

Look, I won’t lie, I am against all sport killing and mistreatment of animals in general. Unless you are going to eat the animal and use every usable square inch of the animal for shelter, clothing, food and protection just leave it alone. Honestly, I don’t think you should do it at all unless you are being attacked.

You know what I think? I think if you are only hunting for sport and not for survival you should be required to fight with a knife not a rifle. Let’s make it a fair fight. Let’s see how sporty you are feeling after you come face to face with a living, breathing, pissed off threatened African Lion. If the Lion would have been at her dwelling and stalking her as prey, then yes, shoot him to save yourself or protect your family but don’t just go out and shoot a living being for no purpose other than you can.

I don’t hunt. I don’t believe in guns and I don’t believe in hunting for sport. If I had no option and my kids were starving, I would hunt for survival but never for sport. What kind of monster must you be to take pleasure in killing an animal who is minding his own business, simply existing in his own habitat? It’s like we learned nothing since the Bob Parson’s incident.

Melissa Bachman, African Lion, extinction, africa,

Melissa Bachman you’ve earned yourself a King of the Jungle sized throat punch this week for being most outrageously offensive human being and grinning like a psycho the entire time.

You quite honestly have NO idea about what goes on in an animal farm. Take a walk through an every-day slaughter house, you people are clueless.

I understand that animals are slaughtered so that people can eat. I understand that. I am not particularly happy about it but it makes sense. I am opposed to hunting for sport which is hunting without purpose other than pride. But yes, I DO have an idea what goes on animal farms. Thanks for commenting.

Melissa’s hunt wasn’t purely for sport, just like Bob Parson. In BOTH cases, the companies would have paid millions of dollars to hunt the desired animal, ALL of which would have gone to conservation efforts. Therefore the taking of these animals was only HELPING the environment. In Parsons’ case specifically, the villagers are seen in the video all dividing up the meat. Therefore he has paid millions towards conservation, got his trophy, and kept hundreds of villagers alive with the meat. In Bachman’s case, no body knows what happened to the meat, therefore all the speculation is pointless, and only leads to more angry people. Once again, everyone, you included, are misinformed, and very bias. MILLIONS of children die each day in Africa, and the hunting of a lion managed to make front page news!? Pathetic.

The fact that she has POSED the poor lion and looks so damn proud of herself is sick. And wrong. Rich people need to find something to do with their money.

[…] Walter Palmer is a big game hunter. He says he secured all the appropriate licenses and jumped through all the big game hoops that were dictated by regulations. Yet, the lion in question was lured off of a reserve at night (I don’t know maybe that’s when you hunt Lions?) when he was clearly in the national park and wearing a collar, which means he was not only protected he was being studied. In fact, not only was he being studied, he was the most famous of all the lions in Zimbabwe. But Americans, we can’t be held to the rules of native countries we are above these savages, besides he had money and if there is anything we are taught in the United States it is that everything has it’s price. He’s not the first person to think he’s above the law and he won’t be the last whe… […]
