Ronnie Purcella is a Monster, He Loves Poisoning Prairie Dogs

IT IS NEVER OK TO PUT POISON INTO THE ENVIRONMENT.  NATURE TAKES CARE OF ITSELF AND DOESNT NEED INTERFERENCE FROM HUMANS.Untitled-1

A few interesting facts about prairie dogs; Prairie Dogs are infectiously mischievous, they are petite, attractive and intelligent, they are unique little animals who maintain well-organized homes with designated areas for nurseries, sleeping, and toilets; They live in towns contained within their underground burrows. These burrows can be overtaken by other animals, such as snakes, black-footed ferret and burrowing owls.
Prairie dogs often “kiss” when they come and go prairie dog couplein the area around their burrow and often play socially bonding games with friends and family. They have a complex means of communication that’s even better than that of chimpanzees and dolphins. Prairie dogs can embed information about the predator’s size, color, direction and speed in a single bark, and a colony — which can include hundreds of animals — consistently uses the same barks to describe the same predators. Prairie dogs even have a specific call that describes a human with a gun.

Ronnie Purcella 32191105_2005795833017900_250624149314076672_nwith Animal and Pest Control Specialists kills more prairie dogs with poison than any other private contractor in Colorado. He gets these contracts because he is the lowest bidder, and he does it with hatred and gusto. One of our supporters called him yesterday, and he starts singing “Another One Bites The Dust” as he laughed and stated that he was killing the bastards right now (in Longmont on Kuhn’s and Strong’s property). This man claims to be a Christian. Ronnie has apparently misinterpreted the Bible’s story of Christ and is in need of an education.blacktailed11014

Ronnie has a long history of being an incredibly immoral and despicable character. During the Castle Rock slaughter, he poisoned thousands of prairie dogs with a smile and clearly enjoyed annihilating this wildlife community. He applied this poison within 2 feet of teenagers that were crying and pleading with him to stop, one of which was hospitalized for the chemical exposure. Ronnie takes pleasure in his job and enjoys killing these animals.

Screenshot_2 Ronnie has been at this far too long and his business seems to be thriving right now especially with the contributions of developers like William Kuhn and Steve Strong. Call his business and keep his phone ringing, write reviews on Yelp, rate him on his Facebook page and review on Google and let him know that these inhumane poisonings are unacceptable to the people of Colorado and elsewhere. Advocates all need to band together and insist that these slaughters stop.

The following was borrowed from the following site Great Plains Restoration Council to show how Prairie Dogs are important to the environment and how they are often blamed for damage that is not even caused by them so sadist pest control monsters can have a job that is unnecessary and pretend it is needed so they are able to act on their sadism often in the same way hunters will lie about how hunting is for conservation [completely fabricated lie to enable hunters to continue to kill and be accepted by the ignorant who don’t check the facts].

Prairie Dogs and Soil Impacts

Focal points

General:

  • Much of the degradation of soils in the urban environments that have prairie dog colonies is the result of considerable human disturbance over long periods of time.
  • The soil erosion we tend to see is often due to overgrazing by cattle, which has been well demonstrated by numerous studies (Schlesinger et al. 1990, Van Auken 2000, Reynolds et al. 2007). It is important to keep in mind that black-tailed prairie dogs prefer open patches of grassland, and will move into heavily grazed patches of grassland. This tends to cause the observer to blame the prairie dogs for the degraded state, when in fact the conditions were present prior to the presence of prairie dogs.
  • Prairie dogs and bison co-existed for thousands of years throughout the central grasslands of North America (Forrest 2005, Miller et al. 2007).
  • Current research at Janos, Mexico by researchers at the University of New Mexico and University of Mexico (Davidson et al., unpublished data) involves an exclosure experiment where they are comparing grassland in areas where prairie dogs are present to where they have been removed. The effects of prairie dogs on soil stability (a measure of soil erosion) are measured for this study, which shows absolutely no difference (statistically or even qualitatively) in soil stability where prairie dogs are absent versus where they are present over the 2 years (4 seasons) of the study.
  • Prairie dog burrows act as aquifers that prevent water from eroding land while helping to cool it.
  • Recent studies have shown that ‘managed’ grasses and forbs atop a prairie dog town are higher in protein and nitrogen and are favored for grazing by bison, elk, and pronghorn.
  • a [Prairie dog] burrowing can be beneficial to the soil because mixing soil types and incorporating organic matter enhances soil formation. It also helps to increase soil aeration and decrease compaction.
  • In short-grass prairies, the number of plant species, particularly forbs, increases because of the digging and scratching activities of prairie dogs that disturb the soil. These patches of bare soil provide excellent sites for annual forbs to become established. . . . Long-term use of an area by prairie dogs appears to promote buffalograss and grama grasses (Foster & Hygnstrom).
  • Prairie dogs do more than just serve as prey, they also perform a valuable service for the prairie – they disturb it. In addition to digging up the soil, prairie dogs clip the vegetation around their burrows, enhancing nitrogen uptake by these plants. Natural disturbances are an important part of maintaining the prairie ecosystem (Kotliar, 2001).

Prairie Dogs, Cattle and Soil Impacts:

The overgrazed conditions that we see when both prairie dogs and cattle co-occur are largely due to cattle being confined to a fenced landscape that no longer reflects the large roaming herds that historically grazed the grasslands.

  • Large ungulates are known to preferentially graze on prairie dog colonies because of the more nutritious forage (Whicker and Detling 1988, Miller et al. 2007). This is a counterintuitive phenomenon made logical by the prairie dog’s penchant for clearing shrubs that cattle shun, while stimulating weeds they savor (Stolzenburg, 2004).
  • Widespread soil erosion is largely caused by overgrazing by cattle, and prairie dogs are known to move into the overgrazed grassland patches.
  • Prairie dogs from urban populations provide a key source of prairie dogs for grassland conservation and restoration.
  • Like giant earthworms, their excavations were loosening and turning, fertilizing and aerating nearly six tons of hard-baked desert soils per acre, more than eight times the combined output of all kangaroo rats, badgers and other burrowing mammals of the grasslands (Stolzenburg, 2004).

Lethal Control:

  • Efforts to simply eradicate prairie dogs from urban areas are short-sighted and do not contribute to the conservation of our native grassland ecosystems.
  • Extermination efforts require 72 hours of poisoning to kill the animals. It is an extremely long, inhumane death, and is not something that should be condoned in a civil society. Additionally, extermination efforts indiscriminately kill not only prairie dogs but also other native wildlife.
  • A model way to think about prairie restoration would be to utilize displaced urban prairie dog populations as a source to repopulate grassland areas being restored for prairie wildlife. In these restoration areas, animals can be released so they can repopulate areas where they were historically abundant, prior to mass extermination efforts and play their keystone role in grassland ecosystems, which is critical to maintaining grassland biodiversity.

PRAIRIE DOGS ARE A KEYSTONE SPECIES OF THE GREAT PLAINS

By Nicole Rosmarino/Southern Plains Land Trust

Editor’s note: (The following studies show unequivocally that prairie dogs are a keystone species of the Great Plains, that is, their presence –including their colonies, burrows structure and grazing habits– is central to the survival of a multitude of other wildlife)

Prairie Dogs as Prairie Restorationists:

Although there is tremendous documentation of the benefits that prairie dogs provide to wildlife species, both as a prey base and for creating extensive habitat for prairie creatures, it is also important to recognize that prairie dogs may help to redress the damage to the land caused by reckless humanity.

First, prairie dogs act as water conservationists. While humans have devastated the water features of the Great Plains –by damming up rivers and streams for crop and livestock agriculture, and by overgrazing of riparian areas by livestock– prairie dogs increase the ability of an arid region to conserve what little water falls from the sky. One author (Outwater 1996) has remarked on the extensive megapore system prairie dogs can provide for channeling precipitation into the water table. Imagine 100-700 million acres of these megapores diligently directing the scant Great Plains rainfall to underground storage. Imagine also what the reduction of those millions of acres to less than 700,000 acres might mean in terms of increased flooding (where there isn’t meant to be flooding) and increased runoff in general.

In addition, prairie dog clipping and digging activities lead to decreases in transpiring leaf area, conservation of soil moisture, changes in soil physical properties, and the promotion of water infiltration to deeper soil depths. All of these factors probably account for the improved soil moisture availability and plant water status on prairie dog colonies (Day and Detling 1994). This improved water status and the higher ratio of green forage on colonies later in the season may explain preferential grazing by bison and antelope (Day and Detling 1994), and, of course, by domestic cattle. In other words, prairie dogs increase the ability of the soil and vegetation in the arid Great Plains to conserve the region’s scant precipitation.

Prairie dogs might also redress some of the problems with overgrazing. For instance, prairie dogs can control noxious weeds and native invaders which proliferate on overgrazed rangeland. An example is prairie dog control of mesquite (Miller et al. 1996; Miller and Ceballos 1994). They remove pods and seeds and nip and strip bark from young seedlings, which contributes to seedling mortality. The extermination of the prairie dog may therefore explain the proliferation of honey mesquite from the late 19th century (“Suffering From a Prairie-Dog Shortage,” 1991). Where mesquite proliferates, prairie dogs could serve to control it.

Finally, prairie dogs may also reverse processes such as soil compaction caused by cattle grazing. For example, Ellison and Aldous (1952) provide an early report of the soil aeration effected by burrowing rodents. These rodents produce soil which is substantially softer and looser than soil in uncolonized areas. Such rodents consequently represent a range improvement, which can undo some negative effects on rangeland (e.g. soil compaction) that are caused by domestic cattle.

In the debate over whether or not prairie dogs are a keystone species of the Great Plains, there is no mention of the fact that all studies reviewed took place after prairie dogs had been reduced by 98% (by 1960). How can we assume wildlife has not made significant adjustments in the face of prairie dog scarcity? Our science may very well have totally missed important, close relationships between prairie dogs and a given bird, mammal, or what have you, only because that bird, mammal, or what have you flew or skittered off to greener pastures in the wake of guns and poisons.)

Many of the earlier studies (e.g. Reading/Miller/Whicker/Detling) have been very clear that the biodiversity contributions of prairie dog colonies should be perceived in terms of a grassland mosaic – e.g. a mix of colonized and uncolonized areas, colonized for different lengths of time. If one looks at biodiversity that way, it makes good sense to observe species near or flying over a prairie dog colony, as well as those species on a colony. Prairie dog colonies don’t operate in isolation from uncolonized areas, so why should their value to biodiversity levels/associated wildlife be judged in isolation? Landscape-level dynamics should be judged at the landscape-level, not acre by acre.

PRAIRIE DOG ASSOCIATES/DOCUMENTED RELATIONSHIPS

1. Black-footed ferret. This species is an obligate associate of the prairie dogs (Russell et al. 1994). Black-footed ferrets depend on prairie dogs as a primary food source and upon their burrows for shelter from weather and predation. The ferret is completely dependent upon prairie dogs for survival (Henderson et al. 1969). Prairie dogs constitute about 90% of the ferret’s diet.

2. Swift Fox. A major portion of the swift fox diet is prairie dogs (Uresk and Sharps 1986). Also of importance is the ability of prairie dogs to provide cover for swift fox. Swift foxes den on or within .8km of prairie dog colonies (Hillman and Sharps 1978).

3. Ferruginous Hawk. That the ferruginous hawk is closely associated with prairie dogs is apparent from research which suggests that ground squirrels and prairie dogs are the top food source for the ferruginous hawk (Olendorff 1993). In addition, researchers have reported the ferruginous hawk’s relative abundance in areas with prairie dog acreage (Knowles and Knowles 1994; Cully 1991), and Canada has emphasized the importance of prairie dogs and burrowing mammals associated with prairie dog colonies in the recovery of ferruginous hawk populations (Canadian Ferruginous Hawk Recovery Plan 1994).

4. Mountain Plover. The mountain plover may be a prairie dog obligate (Knowles and Knowles 1994), and is, at minimum, highly dependent on prairie dogs for survival. Knowles and Knowles (1998) report that mountain plovers select prairie dog colonies for nesting, breeding and feeding. Other reports concur, showing, for example, that mountain plovers use prairie dog towns as nest sites (BLM 1979, cited in Clark et al. 1982), and they strongly prefer the short-cropped vegetation on prairie dog towns (Knowles et al. 1982), which facilitates their insectivorous feeding (Olson 1985).

5. Burrowing Owl. Prairie dog colonies provide the burrowing owl with both shelter and increased prey abundance (Agnew et al. 1987). Consequently, the decline in prairie dog habitat causes declines in burrowing owl numbers (Knowles and Knowles 1994).

6. Golden Eagle. The golden eagle has long been described as an important prairie dog predator, with current predation probably “second only to badger predation” (Campbell and Clark 1981, 273). More recent reports echo the importance of the golden eagle as a prairie dog predator (Hanson 1993), with some researchers declaring that, in the Northern Great Plains, “wherever prairie dogs are found, golden eagles can also be found” (Knowles and Knowles 1994, 35). When golden eagles nest near prairie dog towns, prairie dogs comprise 50-62% of their diet (Tyus and Lockhart 1979).

7. Badger. Badgers are commonly associated with prairie dog colonies. Knowles and Knowles (1994) write “Generally, the more abundant prairie dogs are in an area, the greater the chances of encountering badgers.” According to Campbell and Clark (1981), badgers are possibly the most significant predator of prairie dogs. Lindzey (1982) concurs. 8. Coyote. Coyotes have been named as important predators of prairie dogs by some researchers (Tyler 1968; Koford 1958; Longhurst 1944; Sperry 1941).

9. Prairie Falcons. One researcher reported the majority of predation on prairie dogs was done by prairie falcons (Knowles 1982). Knowles and Knowles (1994) expect that, should good nesting habitat exist for prairie falcons near prairie dog towns, a significant portion of the falcons diets would be prairie dog.

10. Bison. The preference of bison (buffalo) for grazing, breeding, and resting in prairie dog towns has been demonstrated by other researchers (Whicker and Detling 1993; Coppock et al. 1983b). Even more interesting, Krueger (1986) found that bison and prairie dogs have a mutually positive relationship, as the foraging efficiency of prairie dogs increases in the presence of bison, and bison, in turn, prefer the vegetative conditions caused by prairie dogs.

11. Pronghorn. This ungulates preferentially grazes on prairie dog colonies, on account of the abundance of forbs that typify colonized areas (Whicker and Detling 1993; Krueger 1986; Wydeven and Dahlgren 1985). 12. Elk. This ungulate preferentially grazes on prairie dog colonies in the summer months (Wydeven and Dahlgren 1985).

13. Mule deer. This ungulate also preferentially grazes on prairie dog colonies (Foster and Hyngstrom, n.d.).

14. Horned Lark. This bird has been reported to be found in higher abundance on prairie dog colonies than in surrounding mixed-grass prairie (Agnew et al. 1986).

15. Mourning Dove. This bird has been reported to be found in higher abundance on prairie dog colonies than in surrounding mixed-grass prairie (Agnew et al. 1986; Clark et al. 1982).

16. Killdeer. This bird has been reported to be found in higher abundance on prairie dog colonies than in surrounding mixed-grass prairie (Agnew et al. 1986; Clark et al. 1982).

17. Barn Swallow. This bird has been reported to be found in higher abundance on prairie dog colonies than in surrounding mixed-grass prairie (Agnew et al. 1986).

18. Long-billed Curlew. Prairie dog colonies are reported to benefit this bird (Clark et al. 1982; BLM 1979).

19. Eastern Kingbird. Prairie dog colonies are reported to benefit this bird (Clark et al. 1982; BLM 1979).

20. Upland Sandpiper. Prairie dog colonies are reported to benefit this bird (Clark et al. 1982; BLM 1979).

21. McCowns Longspur. Prairie dog colonies are reported to provide nest sites for this bird (Clark et al. 1982; BLM 1979).

22. Snowy Owl. This bird has been documented utilizing prairie dog colonies in the winter months (Sharps and Uresk 1990).

23. Bald Eagle. This bird has been documented utilizing prairie dog colonies in the winter months (Sharps and Uresk 1990), as prairie dogs can provide a portion of this birds diet (City of Boulder, CO, Open Space Dept. 1996).

24. Red-tailed Hawk. This bird has been documented utilizing prairie dog colonies in the spring, summer and fall months (Clark et al. 1982), as prairie dogs can provide a portion of this birds diet (City of Boulder, CO, Open Space Dept. 1996)

25. Kestrel. This bird has been documented utilizing prairie dog colonies in the spring, summer and fall months (Clark et al. 1982).

26. Rough-legged Hawk. This bird has been documented utilizing prairie dog colonies in the spring, summer and fall months (Clark et al. 1982).

27. Harrier. This bird has been documented utilizing prairie dog colonies in the spring, summer and fall months (Clark et al. 1982), as prairie dogs can provide a portion of this bird’s diet (City of Boulder, CO, Open Space Dept. 1996).

28. Short-eared Owl. This bird has been documented utilizing prairie dog colonies in the spring, summer and fall months (Clark et al. 1982). 29. Deer Mouse. This small mammal has been reported to be found in higher abundance on prairie dog colonies than in surrounding mixed-grass prairie (Agnew et al. 1986).

30. Northern Grasshopper Mouse. This small mammal has been reported to be found in higher abundance on prairie dog colonies than in surrounding mixed-grass prairie (Agnew et al. 1986).

31. Desert Cottontail. Prairie dogs enhance habitat for desert cottontails. In one study, no cottontails could be found prior to the
establishment of a prairie dog town, but after the dogtowns were established, cottontails were present in densities of .81-1.33/ha on
colony, in contrast with .03-.05/ha off-colony. (Hansen and Gold 1977).

32. Prairie rattlesnake. The greater abundance of small mammals in prairie dog colonies (Agnew et al. 1986), and the availability of prairie dog burrows for shelter, have been cited as factors for rattlesnakes to utilize prairie dog towns (Knowles and Knowles 1994).

33. Great Plains Toad. The greater availability and abundance of insects on prairie dog towns, and the availability of prairie dog burrows for shelter, have been cited as factors for this toad to utilize prairie dog towns (Knowles and Knowles 1994).

Sadistic Game Warden Tanner Dixson Murders Innocent Family Member

falineLookingOutWindow.png

faline_clipart_by_lop889763-d6yvvg8

Faline, the gentle deer, who chose a human family, The McGaughey’s,  as her own, entered the McGaughey residence on the morning of December 19, 2016, ate three cookies and then left to wander around outside. By that afternoon, she had been fatally and purposely shot by Tanner Dixson, Sadist Game Warden, while her human family and caretakers watched in horror.
Tanner Dixson, a game warden for the state of Kansas, was practically salivating at the prospect of knowing he would soon be able to end an innocent life. For a psychopath, ending an innocent life is seemingly more thrilling and packs more of a punch than ending the life of someone who deserves it.  A psychopath has had to practice his entire life and become good at balancing fitting into society and being able to continue his psychopathy; what better occupation than a law enforcement officer. And in this case just throw out a few official sounding reasons that are exaggerated parts of obscure laws and a few scare tactic statistics and there you have it;  and now he is ready to murder an innocent deer who is quiet, meek, shy, loving and kind. Faline came into the Mcgaughey’s life after she followed Kim Mcgaughey home one day to the family’s six-acre farm outside the town of Ulysses around 22 months ago when the animal was less than a year old.falene-deer-4  The family started feeding Faline two years ago when she came in with a broken leg and then refused to leave. “But she had free rein to do whatever the heck she wanted.  “There was no way you could keep her in an enclosure.” What is clear about Faline is that she was an unusual doe.  Taryn McGaughey, 34, said in an interview that the deer had followed her mother, Kim McGaughey, and the two, had an “instant connection.” Soon the deer had been dubbed Faline, after Bambi’s companion, and she made fast friends with the dogs, horses, and goats on the property.  The doe came and went as she pleased, sometimes roaming several miles, said McGaughey, who added that her mother had previously been told by a local game warden that this relationship was fine so long as the deer was not confined. Kim Mcgaughey fed Faline and gave her water. She put colorful knitted collars on the deer so that hunters would know not to shoot her. falene-12
The three-year-old deer apparently hated the wind and would lock the front door using her head and would often sleep in Kim McGaughey’s room. “She would get on the bed and stand like she owned the place,” said Taryn McGaughey, a fashion, fitness and glamor model. Taryn McGaughey, who said she believes Faline “thought she was a dog,” has photos and videos of the deer inside the home, standing on furniture and playing with her 8-year-old son.falineBed “She was house-trained, she would also come into the house behind me, sleep on the floor while I watched TV,” Kim McGaughey told the commission Thursday, describing how the deer would knock on the door with her head or bleat when she wanted inside. “I would answer her with a bleat back because it sounded like she was hollering, ‘Mom.’
Everyone in the area knew Faline, so when she went missing in December, Kim McGaughey posted a Facebook message asking people to keep their eyes peeled. That, the McGaugheys think, led someone to tip off wildlife authorities. On the afternoon of Dec. 19, 2016, game wardens arrived at the workplace of Kim McGaughey, an emergency medical technician, and issued her a ticket for the confinement of wildlife. [even though Faline was never confined and came and went as she pleased] She told the wildlife commission that she immediately called three Kansas zoos to ask if they’d take the deer, and that one told her to call back when they reopened in the morning.   Kim McGaughey questions the rush, saying the deer was dead within 45 minutes of the game wardens approaching her at work.

“After having her 22 months, they couldn’t even give us 12 hours to try to take her to a sanctuary,” said Taryn McGaughey.

“They said they were worried about our safety, but cats and dogs carry more diseases than any deer ever would. ” She would never get a chance to explore alternative locations for Faline. The wardens had gone to her house, said Taryn McGaughey, who was visiting from Las Vegas and filmed what happened next. In one video, she asks a warden who pets Faline’s head:

“So you’re going to shoot her in the head?” He responds: “Yeah, I am . . . it’s the most humane way to shut her down, to solve this problem.”

In another video, the wardens can be seen walking around the McGaugheys’ property after the deer, who takes quick steps but does not run from them. Taryn McGaughey can be heard saying, “Run, Faline, Jesus.” Soon, when the deer and the wardens are far from sight, a gunshot rings out and McGaughey is heard breaking down into sobs. Four additional shots were fired after that, she said.

These Terrorist Bullies, who are not real men in my book, chase Faline around her yard at her home, a place where she has always felt safe and secure.  Faline knew something was wrong and was so confused because it was at her house and probably had no idea they were there to KILL HER.

Can you imagine how terrified Faline is?

Faline had always felt safe on the McGaughey’s property and I can only imagine the fear, confusion, and danger she sensed in these few minutes before these murderers corner and kill her!

A petition was written by Michelle Phillips to bring Justice for Faline

Petition to fire Tanner Dixson for murdering an innocent deer

Her reason for the petition is as follows”

As a veterinarian and rural farmer, I recognize that Faline and the bond between her and this family was one in a million. That such a rare and precious thing could be so callously and senselessly destroyed, sickens and saddens me to no end. No amount of justice is going to bring Faline back, or erase what happened to her, but hopefully in achieving justice, this family can find some consolation when the perpetrators are punished. Just because something is legal does not make it morally or ethically right. What these men did while hiding behind their badges takes morals and ethics to, for me, an unimaginable low. They should be fired for unethical behavior unsuitable in a public servant. And they should continue to be publicly ostracized. They need to feel some of the pain that their actions have caused – a fraction of the pain that this family will continue to feel for the rest of their lives.
Hopefully we can send a message to people who think they are above the law or who think they are big fish in a little pond and therefore can act with impunity, that they will be held accountable. Maybe in doing so, we can prevent something like this from happening in the future.
Thank you, Taryn, for bravely taking the video and shining a light on this tragedy. Without you and your camera, they would have gotten away with it scott free.

An American dentist has been identified as the hunter who allegedly killed Zimbabwe’s “iconic” lion.

The animal, named Cecil, was lured from a national park and shot with a crossbow, before being tracked for 40 hours and then shot with a gun, according to Johnny Rodrigues, head of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force.

The 13-year-old lion was then decapitated and skinned.

The task force claim that Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, allegedly paid park guides $50,000 (£32,000) to kill the lion, who was a hugely popular attraction at the Hwange National Park.

Mr Palmer, 55, told his local newspaper The Star Tribune that “some things are being misreported” and he is preparing to make a statement later today.

The Zimbabwe Professional Hunters and Guides Association (ZPHGA) accepted in a Facebook post that one of its members, Theo Bronkhorst, was also involved in the hunt.

Bronkhorst, a professional hunter with Bushman Safaris, is charged with illegally killing the animal along with the owner of the land that borders the park, Honest Trymore Ndlovu.

Both men are due to appear in court on Wednesday and if convicted face up to 15 years in prison.

The ZPHGA has confirmed that Bronkhorst’s membership has since been suspended indefinitely: “ZPHGA in the follow up of the investigation concludes that in regarding the responsibility of his membership, the professional hunter is in violation of the ethics of ZPHGA.

“ZPHGA re-iterates it will not tolerate any illegal hunting or any unethical practices by any of its members and their staff”.

Animals are often tempted away from the protection of their parks so that they can be killed ‘legally’, although the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, who are responsible for issuing hunting permits and quotas, insist Cecil was killed illegally.

They said: “The killing of the lion was illegal since the land owner was not allocated a lion on his hunting quota for 2015. Therefore, all persons implicated in this case are due to appear in court facing poaching charges.”

The lion had a GPS collar for researchers at Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit to track its movements.

Attempts to destroy the collar were unsuccessful, which was how the animal was found.

The research unit’s founding director, David Macdonald, said: “It’s not many months ago that I watched Cecil with my hand on my heart as he strayed toward a hunting concession.

“On that occasion he turned back into the protection of the park, but this time he made a fatal mistake and I feel deeply sad, personally.”

Mr Rodrigues added that now that Cecil is dead, the next lion in the hierarchy, Jericho, will most likely kill all Cecil’s cubs so that he can insert his own bloodline into the females, which is standard procedure for lions.

A dentist from Minnesota is accused of paying $50,000 to hunt down and kill a famed lion in Zimbabwe.

“Cecil the lion” was killed in early July, authorities said. A spokesman for the dentist, Dr. Walter Palmer, told The Guardian that Palmer, 55, may have shot the lion.

“What he’ll tell you is that he had the proper legal permits and he had hired several professional guides, so he’s not denying that he may be the person who shot this lion. He is a big-game hunter; he hunts the world over,” Palmer’s spokesman told The Guardian in a statement.

Palmer, of Eden Prairie, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he plans to dispute some of what is being said later Tuesday.

“Obviously, some things are being misreported,” he said.

A professional hunter and the land owner where the lion was killed have already been criminally charged. Police said they are looking for Palmer.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. The Lion Was Left Skinned & Headless on the Outskirts of the National Park

Cecil was found beheaded and skinned on the outskirts of the Hwange national park, authorities said. The hunt occurred around July 6.

“They went hunting at night with a spotlight and they spotted Cecil,” Johnny Rodrigues, a spokesman for the Zimbwabe Conservation Task Force, told The Guardian. “They tied a dead animal to their vehicle to lure Cecil out of the park and they scented an area about half a kilometre from the park.”

Rodrigues said Palmer first shot Cecil with a crossbow, but it did not kill him. They then “tracked him down and found him 40 hours later” and shot him with a rifle, Rodrigues said.

The lion’s head has not been found. Cecil was originally believed to have been killed by a Spanish poacher.

The charity Lion Aid says on its website that it will be difficult to prosecute the person who paid for the hunt, because the client did what the professional hunter tells him to do.

“A client usually has no idea about the laws and regulations of the country he is hunting in – he just buys a safari and then places himself in the hands of his professional hunter guide. Finding the client could be interesting to let him tell his side of the story, but in terms of legal prosecution this person is hardly important,” Lion Aid says.

2. Authorities Say the Professional Hunter Didn’t Have the Permit to Justify the Killing

A professional hunter and the owner of the land where Cecil was hunted are already facing criminal charges in Zimbwabe, authorities said.

“We arrested two people and now we are looking for Palmer in connection with the same case,” Charity Charamba, a police spokesperson, told The Associated Press.

Theo Bronkhorst, who was working with Bushman Safaris, was charged by Victoria Falls police on Monday for allegedly killing the collared lion on Antionette farm in Gwayi Conservancy in the Hwange district, the Zimbwabe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority said.

The land owner, Honest Trymore Ndlovu, is also facing charges.

“Ongoing investigations to date, suggest that the killing of the lion was illegal since the land owner was not allocated a lion on his hunting quota for 2015,” the Parks and Wildlife Management Authority said in a statement.

Bronkhorst and Ndlovu are set to appear in court on Wednesday, and authorities are trying to find another professional hunter, Zane Bronkhorst, who is also believed to have been involved in the hunt.

Lion Aid explains that it is legal to bait lions in Zimbabwe, to shoot them with a bow and arrow from a blind, to kill them outside a national park in a private hunting area and to kill collared lions.

“But Cecil was shot in an area not assigned a lion quota. Supposedly the bait was set for a leopard and then Cecil came along. The professional hunter, Theo Bronkhorst told his client to shoot the lion, and then the hunt became illegal,” Lion Aid says. “The professional hunter then allegedly attempted to destroy the radiocollar to hide the evidence. Allegedly the client was “furious” when he found that the lion was radiocollared. Allegedly, when a professional hunter engages a client in an area without lion quota, the lion will be listed as hunted in an area that does have quota. This could have been standard practice, but unfortunately Cecil was a well-known lion.”

Theo Bronkhorst, Walter palmer, zane bronkhorst

“Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management as the Regulatory Authority and custodian of all wild animals in Zimbabwe issues hunting permits and hunting quota for all hunting areas in Zimbabwe so that only animals on quota are to be hunted. In this case, both the professional hunter and land owner had no permit or quota to justify the offtake of the lion and therefore are liable for the illegal hunt,” the agency said.

The lion trophy has been confiscated, the management agency said in the statement.

Bushman Safaris is a “family run safari outfit in Zimbabwe” that was founded in 1992 by Theo Bronkhorst, according to its Facebook page.

“Today with sons Zane and Jason and wife Michele we are fully established and have concessions in the north of Zimbabwe close to Victoria Falls conducting great big game safaris such as buffalo, elephant etc. We also have our own really successful hound pack with years of experience and lots of great leopard taken and being the only local houndsmen in the country.”

Several people have posted angry comments to the Bushman Safaris page. In a July 1 post, prior to the lion hunt, Bushman Safaris said, “Thanks to all who like our page.Understanding how we as hunters do far more for conservation of our wildlife than anti hunters whom probably almost 100% have never even seen or been around our wildlife.Thank you and be proud to be hunters or understanding what we do.”

Bronkhorst has denied the charges.

“It was a magnificent, mature lion. We did not know it was well-known lion,” he told The Telegraph newspaper. “I had a licence for my client to shoot a lion with a bow and arrow in the area where it was shot.

Lion Aid says, “He will likely abscond rather than face trial unless he is confident of the possible bribes he has paid to an entirely corrupt judiciary. The concession owner is allegedly related to the Zimbabwe Minister of Transport and will therefore be immune from prosecution.”

3. Palmer Has Hunted Big Game All Over the World & Has Been in Trouble in the Past

Walter Palmer, Minnesota dentist hunter, walter palmer dentist, walter palmer minnesota

Walter Palmer has hunted big game all over the world, according to what his spokesperson told The Guardian and photos posted online from previous hunts. Several photos showing him with dead big game animals, including a leopard, rhino and elk, were posted to the website “Trophy Hunt America.”

An album of photos on Smugmug called “Safari Connection” shows Palmer with a different dead lion in 2008.

Palmer was profiled in 2009 by the New York Times after he killed a trophy elk in California.

Palmer told the Times that he paid $45,000 to hunt at the elk habitat in 2009 and killed it with a bow and arrow. He learned how to hunt at 5.

“I don’t have a golf game,” Palmer told the Times.

In 2008, he faced prison time and eventually was placed on probation after admitting to making a false statement to a federal agent in connection with his hunt of a black bear in Wisconsin. Palmer shot a black bear in 2006 about 40 miles outside the zone where he was licensed to hunt, and then lied about it to a U.S. Fish and Wildlife agent, claiming he shot it in the correct zone.

Palmer was ordered to pay $2,938 in restitution and was placed on probation for one year, court records show.


4. He Runs a Dental Practice & Was Previously Accused of Sexual Harassment

Dr. Walter Palmer runs the River Bluff Dental practice in Bloomington, Minnesota. Social media accounts for the dental practice and its Yelp page were flooded with angry comments and death threats.

“Weird visit. Some guy lured me into the dental chair by waving beef jerky at me,” one Yelp reviewer wrote. “Once I sat down, Dr. Palmer viciously attacked my one cavity, but was unable to hit it with the drill. Profusely bleeding from my mouth, I fled the building and wandered the surrounding woods for a day and a half. Thankfully, I didn’t bleed out. My family would’ve been killed and eaten by my neighbors. Two stars.”

Another wrote, “Beware! This dentist might end up killing you in the process of whatever dental treatment you seek. If you seek out a sociopath in a dentist – this is your guy.”

Palmer was accused in 2009 of sexual harassment by a former employee who was also a patient, according to the Pioneer Press. He settled with the Minnesota Dentistry Board and his insurer paid $127,500 to his accuser.

The woman said he made unwelcome comments about her and touched her breasts, buttocks and genitals. He denied the allegations but said he settled to “conclude the matter quickly and efficiently.”

He was also ordered to complete a jurisprudence exam and ethics course.

The dental practice’s website is offline, but a cached version says that Palmer is a general and cosmetic dentist who graduated with honors from the University of Minnesota and its dental school, completing his degree in 1987.

“Dr. Palmer has a unique talent for creating dazzling smiles that complement each individuals tooth structure, skin tone, and facial attributes,” the website says. “One very important aspect of achieving this is taking the time to really listen and hear exactly what the patient wants in their smile and any specific concerns they may have. A comprehensive patient consult is free of charge.”

Palmer, who is married with two children and is originally from North Dakota, says on the website that he “enjoys all outdoor activities.”

“Anything allowing him to stay active and observe and photography wildlife is where you will find Dr. Palmer when he is not in the office,” the website says.

Palmer did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Heavy. His office phone was disconnected. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that a sign outside the office directed visitors to a Minneapolis public relations firm. At least one patient showed up not knowing about the global scandal the dentist is involved in, the newspaper reported.


5. The 13-Year-old Lion Was Well Known & ‘Never Bothered Anybody’

The 13-year-old Cecil the lion has been collared as part of an Oxford University research project the university has run since 1999 in Zimbabwe, The Guardian reports. It was a beloved figure in the Hwange park and was often photographed by tourists.

“He never bothered anybody,” Johnny Rodrigues, of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, told The Telegraph. “He was one of the most beautiful animals to look at.”

The conservation task force told The Guardian that Cecil had several cubs.

“The saddest part of all is that now that Cecil is dead, the next lion in the hierarchy, Jericho, will most likely kill all Cecil’s cubs so that he can insert his own bloodline into the females,” the task force said.

“That’s how it works… it’s in the wild; it’s nature taking its course,” Rodrigues told the BBC.

“Cecil was not the first male lion enticed out of the park to be shot by trophy hunters. In fact, the research programme indicates that over the years, 74% of the male lions on the border of the National Park have been shot by hunters,” Lion Aid says on its website.

Serial Killer and Hunter Traits

image

Almost all serial killers – in fact, 99% of them – admitted that they started by acting out their violent fantasies on animals before graduating to human beings. Due to the dysfunctional families most serial killers come from, such pathological and abnormal behavior may be ignored or completely missed – as in the case of Jeffrey Dahmer, whose father was unperturbed by the fact that his son was dissecting animals. These acts of animal cruelty are a great source of pleasure to young killers, and they manage to perfect the art completely – later performing the same acts on their human victims.

Update: Corey Knowlton paid $350,000 to kill an endangered black rhino in January and now he has done it.

Well this piece of disgusting sewage did it, he MURDERED A  BLACK RHINO, ONE OF THE MOST ENDANGERED SPECIES IN THE WORLD AND HAS LIED ABOUT IT SAYING HE DID IT IN THE NAME OF CONSERVATION, THERE IS NO BENEFIT IN HUNTING DISGUISED AS CONSERVATION.  NATURE DOES NOT, I REPEAT, DOES NOT NEED MAN’S HELP.  COREY KNOWLTON IS A PIECE OF GARBAGE AND AS EVIL AS THEY COME.

A mere 5,000 African black rhinos are now estimated to live in the wild, but that isn’t stopping a Texas-based group from killing one of the endangered animals. In a closed auction held this weekend, the Dallas Safari Club auctioned off a permit to hunt a rhino in Namibia for a whopping $350,000.
The winner of the auction, which was first announced late last year, hasn’t been identified. But their bid breaks the previous record for a Namibia black rhino hunting permit — five of which are doled out by the country each year — by more than $100,000. Those who purchase the permits are only allowed to hunt from a preselected group of rhinos, largely comprised of older male animals no longer capable of breeding.

Despite that caveat, and assurances from the hunting group that proceeds from the auction will go to conservation efforts, the event hasn’t exactly been met with plaudits from animal advocacy groups like the Humane Society and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). “This auction is telling the world that an American will pay anything to kill their species,” Jeffrey Flocken of the IFAW told the Associated Press of the event. “This is, in fact, making a spectacle of killing an endangered species.”

“An American will pay anything to kill their species.”

Members of the Dallas Safari Club have defended the auction, largely on the grounds that significant financial resources are required to help save endangered black rhinos. They’ve also noted that the older males being hunted under the permits tend to become aggressive and territorial, and are often culled by wildlife officials in an effort to protect younger rhinos. “The removal of limited numbers of males has been shown to stimulate population growth in some areas,” reads a statement from the US Fish and Wildlife Service, which advised the club on permits required for the auction’s winner to import any trophy derived from the hunt. “Removing specific individuals from a population can result in reduced male fighting, shorter calving intervals and reduced juvenile mortality.”

This particular hunt might be a tightly controlled one, but poachers remain the primary threat to black rhino populations throughout Africa. Rhino horns, often used in medicine, can sell for $30,000 a pound in some regions, and poaching has slashed black rhino populations from around 70,000 in the 1970’s. The US government last year launched a $10 million anti-poaching effort to help address the crisis.
