This American Trophy Hunter Shot a Sleeping Lion

A few years before Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer infamously killed the beloved Cecil the lion, another pathetic American trophy hunter did something as despicable: he shot a lion in Zimbabwe that was sleeping in the sun.

Although this happened in 2011, a disturbing video of the killing recently went viral after Protect All Wildlife, an animal advocate in the United Kingdom, posted it on Twitter March 18. In the graphic video, you can see Guy Gorney of Illinois using a rifle to shoot the sleeping lion once. As the lion woke up in agony, Gorney shot him two more times before a guide told him to stop…and then congratulated him.

I could only watch this once. It made me nauseous. I would throw this guy in a pack of lions and watch what happens.

36. 'i wanna hunt. Like my ancestors did (to impress the other mens' with my manly virility.').

Then you should have tried to kill that lion with a stick with a sharp rock tied to the end. Or be REALLY a badass and forgo the rock (rocks are for CUCKS!---thanks, the ferret! lol), and just sharpen the stick.

THAT 'achievement' I'd be impressed with.

As it it...I'm gonna go with 'small penis', and leave it at that.

This person is a garbage human. That is all.

16. Let's not be too quick to judge.

These sort of things are complicated.

The sleeping (if he actually was sleeping) lion may have been one of those bad, old, lions that were killing younger lions, and limiting the lion population.......so mr hunting guy may have actually been saving a lot of lion lives by shooting him....and there might be a lot of starving people around there, that really need some lion meat, so he's helping them too. Sometimes, to help a species, some members of that species have to be killed. Like I said, it's complicated.

Mr hunting guy may be a swell guy, that's just doing his part to save lions.

Or, it could be as simple as this guy's a piece of shit that gets off on killing big animals.

I'm going with Occam's Razor on this one.

Is why we employ environmentally conscious and professionally trained Park Rangers in places where these kinds of complications CAN be a concern.

AND I'm guessing you're right, and this guy ISNT THAT!

18. Does "Protect all Wildlife" have to use a slur against WOMEN in his tweet?

Last edited Sat Mar 30, 2019, 04:57 PM - Edit history (1)

Is it important to offend women while he's railing against the cowardly hunter?

No woman had anything to do with the slaughter of the lion. Using the C word is just as offensive as using the N word. Would it have been acceptable if the tweeter had said, "How N***ish"?

There are lots of articles available online that don't include the offensive tweet. One of them would have been a better choice -- like this one, which names the shooter: Guy Gorney of Manhattan, Ill.

30. I also speak American English.

And yet I still know the difference between how an English person uses that word and how an American uses it.

It's kinda like the thumbs-up sign. In English speaking countries and much of the rest of the world, it's a positive. But in some African and Middle Eastern countries, it's the same as giving the middle finger.

Or the backwards peace sign. Here in America, it's just a way to say cool or hello. In England it's akin, again, to giving the middle finger.

I know that knowing your audience matters. But intent also matters. And so does context.

34. If the Brits thought it was okay to call something "N**ish," would you be defending that here, too?

If the British tweeter had called the shooter a "F**t," would you be defending that also?

I don't care how the British use the C word. It's posted on an American board and it's offensive to American women. The OP could have found some way to address this issue without using that particular tweet.

Like one of the many articles talking about this. The article below would have the added advantage of naming the man who did the shooting, while not including any slurs against women. He has been identified as Guy Gorney of Manhattan, Ill.

No, you're right. I read it again. You didn't ask me what I'd do. You asked me if I'd defend them.

My answer is basically the same, though: "No. I'd consider the source and remember it's not always about me."

I do apologize, though, for misrepresenting what you said. That was some sloppy reading on my part.

Whether they are sleeping or walking through the woods with their kids, they are just living their life without even knowing that hunting exists and someone is trying to kill then with a weapon they can't comprehend and no chance to fight back.

All of it is cowardly.
