Noble beast? An ibex?

It's a bleedin' goat! :rofl:

Bleeding, yes badly, for sure.

You've obviously never spent time in the mountains observing them- for sure.

And you've obviously never seen a red deer stag.

What an idiotic presumption!

Hobbies and sport rarely make sense to those that don't participate in them.

Perhaps because neither watching 22 millionaires nor standing in a field of vintage cars ever killed a living being in cold blood.

Probably would make great chili! :msntongue:

Well there you go - just go and help yourself as it is left to rot - at it least it won't be wasted. Would you like us to signal any road kills too.

Eating meat in Europe in the 21st century is no more morally justifiable than trophy hunting. It's simply a matter of choice.

The hypocrisy in this thread smells stronger than a dead goat on a mountainside.

You do become hilarious when you really try very hard - for sure. Bite? - no way.

I'm not joking, Odile. Take a look in a mirror for once.

It is not left to rot, game needs to be hung days or weeks before it is edible!

Don't those sports cars generally have leather seats;)

If you find it fun/pleasurable to kill another living creature, then there’s something wrong with you.

Plants are living creatures too. :eek:

Just saying. :rolleyes:

Or do you eat rocks? :confused:

Actually they're not. They may be living but they're not creatures.

But it's ok for you to find pleasure in eating the flesh of an animal somebody has killed for you?

The families of 39 dead Italians may disagree with you on that.

Here we go again..... False equivalences and all that. :)

Btw, it is a beautiful wild animal. I wonder if this culling it's really necessary. I shall look it up more.
Thanks OP, food for thought.
