Prepare to Be Mad

Audubon Magazine has an infuriating look inside canned hunts. Money quote:
Often the animals have names, and you pay in advance for the one you’d like to kill, selecting your trophy from a photo or directly from its cage. For example, Rachel, Bathsheba, Paul, John, and Matthew were pet African lions that would stroll over and lick their keepers’ hands before they were shot in Texas.
My emphasis. Now, truth be told, deer and elk are far more common, but just the practice of rigging hunts for "sportsmen" on tight schedules just makes my blood boil.
