4. Never eat at Jimmy John's or Pappy Johns. Two hunters. I tried to find a list

of other companies and could only find "Under Armour" and "Honeywell" that support or have CEO's that trophy hunt.

I wish someone would make out a list and put it on a Twitter type photo so we could spread it around and make these people pay for what they do

https://www.change.org/p/please-take-the-pledge-not-to-purchase-under-armour-products-until-they-stop-endorsing-trophy-killers-and-profiting-off-the-blood-of-the-innocent


Here is some more information.

http://blog.humanesociety.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Trophy-Hunting-Report.pdf

"An undercover investigation of Safari Club International’s 2016 annual convention held in Las
Vegas reveals that the trophy hunting organization supports selling off the world’s most
threatened animals for trophy hunters to kill around the world. Major names in American
businesses – including David Cote, chairman and CEO of Honeywell International, Inc., Jimmy
John Liautaud, CEO of Jimmy Johns Gourmet Sandwiches, and Flagstar Bank (one of the
nation’s largest mortgage-lending companies) founder Thomas J. Hammond
- - are part of the
global animal-killing enterprise, with hunting outfitters and the Safari Club International cashing
in on the enthusiasm for the killing sprees.


More than half of SCI’s annual revenue - $14.7 million, in the form of tax-exempt gifts – is
global animal-killing enterprise, with hunting outfitters and the Safari Club International cashing
in on the enthusiasm for the killing sprees."

12. I have always loved elephants. But ever since seeing them in the wild and being so overwhelmed

that I burst into tears, I often think to myself "what would make you look at this beautiful creature and think 'wouldn't it be cool to shoot it?'" I mean, not for food, not to use in any way, not to keep it from killing you. Just for "fun." It is the epitome of human cruelty and injustice.

I watch a lot of animal videos. Sometimes I watch some where a human rescues a wild animal. Inevitably there is a comment from someone saying something along the lines "That's just stupid. Why would this guy risk his life to help this animal? No animal life is more important than a human life."

That assumption confuses me. I think there are plenty of animal lives more important. Any elephant on the planet is more important than a piece of shit that would shoot an elephant for fun.

16. I don't know what your religion or non religion is but I believe that some people

are just very un-awakened. I like thinking of it like that rather than seeing them as just evil because it has gotten to the point that I just can't stand thinking of anything bad happening and that is a horrible way to feel

These are Eastern religion thoughts and also I listen to some Gurus - mostly Eckart Tolle who talks a lot about how people are on a kind of continuum of awakening, obviously with trophy hunters and other sadist type of people at the very back of the line. I can believe it because I can see how I have changed in my life.

18. I'm pretty much non-religious but I am spiritual.

It makes sense. But you are kinder than I about trophy hunters. To me they scum on the order of child murderers. Worse in a way because they don't even face jail for what they do.

2. Oh heavens... I so adore elephants... We don't begin to appreciate how intelligent

and emotionally sophisticated they are.

All my love, my happy pack...!

13. well!

Don't play this video if you have a sensitive situation with your cats in the house! They heard the elephants, and the resident cat thought the foster cat was growling at him and vice versa! Lots of poofy tails and scurrying around! Foster cat is under the bed and no harm done!

15. Well known truth

If you want to stop work at an all female work place, just bring in a new born. Work will stop immediately. "BABY!"
