It Serves Them Right

As you might expect of a big-city liberal, The Curmudgeon isn’t much of a fan of hunting – other than people hunting for food when they can’t afford to buy food. He doesn’t see the sport: if you win, you get the dead animal, and if the animal wins, it gets – to keep on living?  Doesn’t seem very sporting, does it?

So that’s why The Curmudgeon’s face blossomed into a big goofy grin a while back when he ran across a U.S. News & World Report headline that declared

Lions Eat Rhino Poachers on South African Game Reserve

 The article explained that

At least two rhino poachers were eaten by lions on a South African game reserve, the owner of the lodge said on Thursday.

 A ranger taking guests at the Sibuya Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape on a safari drive on Tuesday afternoon discovered human remains close to a pride of lions.

 “We suspect two were killed, possibly three,” Sibuya owner Nick Fox said.

And all The Curmudgeon can think is:

Good for the lions! 

The only thing that might’ve been better is if the lions had eaten the guy who owns the hunting lodge, too.
