A Dad Let His Daughter Take a Bite of a Deer Heart and Now the Internet Is Losing Their Minds

People are outraged after a New Zealand father and daughter shared pictures of their special hunting trip with the Facebook group called NZ Woman Hunters. The pictures show Johnny and his daughter Chloe celebrating her first kill with a tradition some folks are calling "sadistic".

It was 8-year-old Chloe's first ever kill. So, by tradition, "she took a bite from its quivering heart."

Well.... the picture garnered over 20,000 shares and the comments section triggered a lot of hate.

Lion Hunting Dentist draws everyone's ire.

One of the "most famous lions in Africa", and an ongoing research subject of Oxford University, was hunted and killed illegally by a Minnesotan Dentist in early July and everyone is pissed.

Cecil the lion was the leader of his pride in a Zimbabwean and had been widely publicized to draw attention to the university's studies.

According to The Guardian:

On Tuesday, the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said the man thought to have paid $50,000 (£32,000) for the chance to kill Cecil was not a Spaniard as originally believed, but US citizen Walter Palmer, from a small town near Minneapolis. The man left the lion skinned and headless on the outskirts of the park, the ZCTF's Johnny Rodrigues said in a statement.

The hunt took place around 6 July. "They went hunting at night with a spotlight and they spotted Cecil," Rodrigues said. "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."

The 13-year-old lion was wearing a GPS collar as part of an Oxford University research project that had been running since 1999, making it possible to trace his last movements. Rodrigues said the hunters tried to destroy the collar, but failed.



Here's some Oxford University footage of Cecil in his habitat:



Palmer pictured below on the left with another lion he killed, not Cecil, has received wide spread condemnation from just about everyone.



Multiple Facebook groups have been set up to shame the hunter.

And his dentist office's Yelp account is being creatively pummeled.







The reaction spread so big it spilled over into real life, causing Palmer to shut up his office July 28.



Palmer's defense is that he simply did not know. That has done nothing to stop the creation of an online petition calling for justice, which has already been signed by almost 70,000 people.

The Guardian goes on to say that, with the removal of Cecil as the pride's leader, another male lion will move in to dominate the pride and likely kill Cecil's cubs.

So, not the happiest of endings.

Self-proclaimed liberal democratic candidate Mike Dickinson is on the hunt for illicit material with Kendall Jones, the young hunter whose photos of dead wildlife sparked controversy earlier this week. "Self-proclaimed," because it's likely that Dickinson will never appear on a ballot and is in fact a blowhard political grifter.
