Yes, this man, who’s website starts off with a video of himself saying “Hi, I’m Bob Parsons!” to AC/DC and a beautiful woman flitting onto his arm, has posted some graphic video of himself shooting elephants in Zimbabwe.
“The video shows the CEO and his hunting party looking over a farmer’s damaged crops, shooting at elephants at night, and then Parsons posing with the dead bull. Sure, it’s not quite the same as the Afghanistan “Kill Team” posing over their human victims, but it’s every bit as alarming. It also shows crowds of villagers ravaging the carcass the next morning.” www.hypervocal.com
I ask all to keep an open mind, but check out his blogsite, and take it all in. His actions in the middle of the night in Zimbabwe sure are a measure of his success. You have enough money, you can do anything.
I understand the need for hunting in cultures, where the main sustenance for survival is to hunt off the land, such as the Inuit and native tribes of Africa, but this video is absolutly disgusting and truly shows that there are idiots still living among us. It’s one thing to shoot an animal because there isn’t a local grocery store around the corner, but to glorify this action by having AC/DC playing in the background and posting it for all to see is juvenile and repulsive.
This so called Hunter, U.S. Marine. Not a real doc. Lover of all things American (esp Chevrolet, NRA & Smith & Wesson (from his Twitter account) sets the bar for middle aged douche-dom. Tribesmen, who are starving, have limited means, and probably no access to the internet, smiling as they hack away at an endangered spieces wearing GoDaddy.com hats, is truly surreal. Even the brilliant Eli Roth couldn’t equal nor replicate the horror and absurdityof these scenes in his movies.
Thank you Mr. Roth for bringing this to light via your Twitter account.
