As an avid participant and defender of sport hunting for dangerous big game, I was horrified by the story of the alleged "hunt" of captive tigers, lions and leopards.
These people are not hunters but "shooters"! They are not sportsmen but slaughterers! Where is the danger? Where is the "matching of wits"? Where is the thrill of confrontation? Let us throw the book (and let it be a big, heavy book) at these cowardly killers of retired zoo pets. And please don't call them hunters--that really hurts.
