Howard Jones BS: Keep Larysa Switlyk out of Scotland (62* d) RE: BS: Keep Larysa Switlyk out of Scotland 27 Oct 18

Many will have been upset simply by the sight of beautiful animals being killed, but these animals have no natural predators and will have to be culled from time to time. However this will normally done quietly and professionally. Deer stalking has a long tradition, and makes a significant contribution to the Highland economy. If culling other animals can be made into an opportunity for income, rather than being a cost, there may be a benefit from it.

As others have already said, it is her triumphalism which is particularly offensive. Americans have a very different attitude towards hunting than us in the UK, where it is also mixed up with attitudes towards class. To us, this behaviour definitely grates. However I think Brits have also been surprised and shocked by what she chose to target, which include animals not usually thought of as sporting game. A stag is a noble quarry, once the preserve of kings, but shooting a goat makes her look ridiculous. As for shooting a bloody sheep, that just makes her look stupid.
