BEIJING, April 10 (OCN) -- In a report released recently by the British Anti-Animal Hunting Organization (CBTH), Zimbabwean man Ron Thomson, one of the worlds most productive hunters, has killed at least 5,000 elephants and more than 800 buffaloes in these years. However, he has no intention of repentance for these actions, and even adheres to self-created theories such as hunting to control the number of animal populations and providing better habitats for animals, which arouse public outrage on social networking sites.

Thomson, from Zimbabwe, has been working as a national park ranger since 1959 and has also started hunting animals, according to Russia Today and the Sun. On his website, he claimed to have killed more than 800 buffaloes, 60 lions and about 50 hippos, and more. He also boasted that it took only 15 minutes to kill 32 elephants. For these personal histories, Thomson has said publicly recently, I think I did the right thing and I dont regret it at all.

In addition, Thomson once told the Guardian about his theory that I have the motivation to kill animals to help them survive. If the number of some species is uncontrolled, it will destroy their habitat.

Thomsons attitude toward what he did provoked strong opposition and prompted public outrage on Twitter. Some netizens commented, Stillincreasing elephant habitat? This old man really boasts of himself.

Some netizens said, Does such a person sleep well at night?

There are also criticisms from netizens, which will eventually lead to retribution.

Experts say some of Thomsons pseudo-theories are just a cover for animal hunting and selling wildlife products. In the past 30 years, the number of ivory stolen by hunters has increased by 12 times, according to a report recently released by the Anti-Animal Hunting Organization. Meanwhile, the number of elephants has dropped from about 1.3 million to only 400,000. Nowadays, the idea of protecting wildlife and restricting wildlife products is going deep into our body and mind. Source: Overseas Network Responsible Editor: Liu Yuxin_NBJS7825
