The speedy rise of trophy hunting is becoming quite problematic. More and more people show keen interesting in shooting animals for sport.
What’s worse, most of them do it for online clout.
They post pictures of their kills on social media to satisfy their egos. Initially, hunting used to have a purpose.
Men killed animals to survive. It is drastically different now, as people hunt for fun or sell their body parts to illegal markets.
In most cases, authorities do not penalize these people despite having comprehensive laws against hunting.
While there is no shortage of trophy hunting cases that suggest how sadistic most huntsmen are, the one we are going to discuss will mainly make you angry.
Guy Gorney – The Trophy Hunter From Illinois
Trophy hunters are mostly young or middle-aged men who are strong enough to fend off or escape attacks.
You will rarely find an older person going to the jungle to kill a wild animal. Guy Gorney happens to be one of the exceptions.
He is in his mid-sixties and has gotten into trouble multiple times for shooting animals in various places.
The man travels to different parts of the world to satisfy his desire to hunt wild beasts and show off after killing them.
He came under fire recently after a viral video that showed him killing a defenseless sleeping lion.
As you would expect, there was a lot of outcry about it – so much so that people wanted to do the same to him.
The footage was quite graphic, and it showed Gorney shooting multiple rounds.
The lion woke up, squirming with overwhelming pain after the first two shots.
It seemed like it couldn’t comprehend what happened to him. The third and final round killed the wild animal.
If you carefully look at the video, Gorney was wearing a safari garb when steadying his aim.
You can also notice someone’s voice, presumably a gamekeeper, instructing Gorney as he prepares to shoot.
The video zooms in on the sleeping lion who is lying on an open plain.
