And it is simply ah-mazing!
Would you pay $350,000 to put your family's life in danger AND murder an endangered species??
Sounds kinda way ridiculous but that's pretty much what's going on for Corey Knowlton.
Knowlton paid $350,000 to the Dallas Safari Club Auction for a super rare permit to hunt an endangered black rhino.
Animal conservationists everywhere are freaking out that this hunting permit even exists.
Knowlton has tried to explain to his critics how letting him buy the permit has sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to a cause that will actually SAVE more black rhinos, but also how it's okay to kill one… as long as it's specific.
The Namibian government has apparently picked out specific rhinos that can and SHOULD be killed because they're not only too old to breed but they're also grumpy old men who pose an actual threat to healthy, young rhinos.
Ricky Gervais is always looking out for the animals!
Because he's a kind-hearted, wonderful human being.
Like that time he said hunters should be called cun– well, we'll let you go check it out yourself… LOLz!
Ricky was back at it, this time, criticizing hunters by tweeting out the following pic:
This is so ridiculous we don't even know where to start!
The Dallas Safari Club has got their hands on a very rare item:
A permit to hunt and kill an endangered black rhino!!
Why anyone ever is allowed to kill any endangered species is beyond our comprehension.
Here comes the weird part…
Ricky Gervais is so funny and talented and smart.
He's really got it together. Especially when it comes towards his view on animals and animal rights.
He went on a twitter rant (which has since been deleted) calling out hunters everywhere!
Three hunters in Nova Scotia sadly murdered a rare albino moose, which is considered to be a spirit animal by the indigenous Mi'kmaq community.
The white moose has been living in the Belle Cote forest for many years and even though killing the spirit animal isn't illegal, it's still sad, and is considered blasphemous to the indigenous people.
…Especially considering the fact that the hunters posed pics gleefully with the dead animal and posted them on Facebook.
A Mi'kmaq hunter explained why their community would never harm the albino moose and it's importance, saying:
Are you a big fan of Neiman Marcus and their wonderful, fancy, high-end goods?
Are you also a big fan of birds, specifically falcons, even more specifically the art of falconry??
Yes, falconry, as in the sport of hunting prey with falcons.
If you answered yes to all of the above, as we assume most of you did (JK), then boy have we got a deal for you!!
Neiman Marcus is now selling a Bespoke Global ultimate falconry kit for the low, low (read: high, high) price of $150,000!!
They posted a pic (above) to their instagram and wrote:
Whoa!! That's one heck of an alligator!!
Alligator hunting season has only just begun in Mississippi and the state record for heaviest gator has already been broken twice.
In the same day!!
First, a 723.5-pound, 13.5-foot-long gator was caught, breaking the record by 26-pounds.
Then, later that day, Dustin Bockman and his buddy Cole Landers (who both have '70s porn star names) caught a 13-foot-long, 727-pound gator!!
"He broke all the lines we could put in him. Finally put a snare on him and got him up high enough and put a shot on him. All in all, probably took us four and a half hours to catch him from the first time we saw him. My goal was to get a 10-footer. I couldn't believe it when it was that big."
That's crazy there are gators that big and that common!
We don't like anyone killing animals ever but maybe people will sleep a little easier knowing this beast is out of the water.
Check out the video (above) to see the record breaking beast.
