Why Kill Big Game?

Hemingway wrote romantically about the manliness of killing large animals. I loved that guy, but I don’t think he makes much sense now, at least in that respect. The animals are disappearing, and the assholes who kill them seem to be multiplying.
There is a story that when a young Masai boy reaches manhood, he must go out alone with a spear and kill a lion. Big game hunters use a rifle, and are protected by men with Kalashnikov’s. It’s a gutless way to prove what a man you really are. Time to end this.
