The idiot special friend of an increasingly inept and intimidated media, Hans Kriek, leader of a very small bunch of morons given status well beyond their relevance, has this morning come out to wail crocodile tears over "The Annual Easter Bunny Hunt".
An iconic combination of real people's desire to 'hunt', a recreational opportunity during the long weekend and destruction of a pest that devastates millions of acres of some of the most challenged land environmentally, in Central Otago, the charity fund raiser has ben accorded target status as the latest brain fart of Kriek and his happy clapper fun police.
Teams of shooters are allocated an area of such land and they compete to deliver the winning total of rabbits in a designated time frame annually at Easter. Of course there have been attempts to rort the simple rules, using frozen earlier shot carcasses, having extras gather bodies from another area and other simpletons being clever but the event has been delivering fun and economic benefit for decades.
Of course SJWs and media enablers fresh from trying to spoil the long traditions of Rodeo another well run activity of real New Zealand citizens acting within the current law, must be outraged. So people shoot vermin, gee can't have that.
Here is another lawful activity with much greater potential to cause genuine suffering for " innocent animals" Hans but a dollar to a knob of moron poo I bet you and your tame minions of the media will not go within arms reach.
Back in the second half of last century, an industry facing massive challenges from The UK joining the protected consumer ripoff, quaintly called The Common Market, NZ meat producers, seeking alternative markets for meat, by then in surplus due to the restrictions in place from Brussels, turned to the increasingly wealthy Middle East.
One minor hurdle, the traditional slaughter of sheep by slashing the throat and simultaneously snapping the neck vertebrae bringing instant death from brain/ spinal cord trauma and cattle by way of a "captive bolt" driven into the brain of the doomed animal followed by slitting the carotid arteries were not compliant with the Halal practice of slow death by exanguination that has the poor animal slowly dieing from blood loss, a process that takes much longer.
Now it is no surprise that a Stone Age religion with 1500 years of brutality embedded in its Sharia Law would wish to perpetrate such barbarity but here is a point that may give Hans and his vegan supporters some real potential suffering for animals to attack or at least ask some questions.
It is well documented that electrocution has widely variable outcomes. where one prson can suffer from a high current and survive while another being subjected to a much lower current dies in a milisecond, so hows about having a go at Islam Hans.
