Article from 2001 regarding trophy hunting:

Lions face new threat: they're rich, American and they've got guns

You might call the lions of southern Africa potential Bush meat. The former American president, George Bush senior, and his old Gulf War ally, General "Stormin' Norman" Schwarzkopf, are pleading with the government of Botswana to be allowed to revive their old alliance, this time in pursuit of Africa's endangered big cats.

Mr Bush is among prominent members of Safari Club International (SCI) who have written to the Botswanan authorities asking them to lift a ban slapped on trophy hunting of lions in February.

Arizona-based SCI describes itself as the largest hunting organisation in the world and people who do not like what it does as "animal protection extremists".

Mr Bush's former vice-president, Dan Quayle, is also among the signatories along with Gen Schwarzkopf. Both men went hunting in Botswana last year, although it is not known if they bagged lions on that occasion.

1. Didn't George H. W. Bush kill a lion?

 

I am googling the hell out of that and cannot seem to find a link. I am almost certain that he did. It was a number of years ago. Any help?

4. Uhhh, does no one see this opportunity?

 

George Bush is a shameless, privileged, lion-killing coward. His son wants to be president.
