Millionaire banker Sir David Scholey poses with the bloody corpse of a lion when he was on one of his cherished ‘trophy hunting’ hoildays recently and despite the picture being extremely upsetting and horrific to the majority of us, the animal killer defends his cruel and sadistic actions because he pays good money to do so.
The 72-year-old said:
“I have been hunting all over the world for many, many years and I have always hunted within the legal arrangements of the country concerned.
“I regard that as an entirely personal matter.
“All the animals I hunt are wild beasts and even I have felt threatened by them at times.
“The lion I killed certainly wasn’t an endangered species where I was hunting it.
“The object is to dispatch the animal with a bullet it never hears.
“That’s why it’s important to be a very good shot before you even think about hunting.
“I continue to hunt big game, not as much as I used to but I do continue to do it.”
Other upsetting pictures of the Tory government donor posing with elephant tusk and skulls are posted on two leading African websites that organise the ‘trophy killing’ trips that charge their wealthy clients Â£25,550 for a 24-hour lion and leopard shooting trips to Mozambique.
