Flogging a dead pig
If I see this fucking photo again I think my head might a’splode:
The giant kill made news around the world after The Sunday Times last week reported it. We confirmed – contrary to competing Internet claims and denials from the Department of Environment and Conservation – that it was indeed killed in the Pilbara.
Before snowballing Sporting Shooters Association propaganda that – get this – Perth is at threat from giant feral pigs!
They don’t even ask the Department of Environment and Conservation what they think of the threat, probably because the Department was so thoroughly discredited by The Sunday Times’ investigative journalism last time.
And then there’s this:
Even Todd Russell, the rescued Beaconsfield miner and keen shooter, who was trapped nearly a kilometre beneath the ground in 2006, has been over to WA to get in on the [feral pig killing] action.
Because the first thing anyone would want to do after being trapped in a claustrophobic underground cage for two weeks and forced to shit in your hard hat is get back at nature by killing feral pigs?
The article contains no word as to what Clare Werbloff thinks of the whole thing.
Excuse me, I got some a’splodin to do.
