Giant red stag was gunned down ‘legally for his antlers’

“I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls.  They always say because it’s such a beautiful animal.  There you go.  I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.”  ~Ellen DeGeneres

Giant red stag was gunned down ‘legally for his antlers’ which experts say could fetch £2,000  – In Exmoor.

A giant red stag cut down in his prime was apparently shot legally after the landowner was paid for the shooting rights – and his mounted head could be sold for £2,000, it was claimed.

Towering nine feet tall and weighing as much as two adult men, the Exmoor Emperor was Britain’s largest wild animal.

Local wildlife lovers say the huge stag was shot by trophy hunters last week in the middle of the mating season – and that his head and antlers are destined for the wall of a hotel or country home.

The Emperor is thought to have been shot by licensed guns, rather than poachers, making his death legal.

No doubt if it was the land owner he will be plagued by animal rights activists.
No creature deserves to die just so that their blooded head can be mounted on a wall.  Be it before OR after the rutting season.
Richmond Park will soon be shooting the deer that roams the park, ofcourse, legally.  Legal in the human court of law!
