    Isn't it a shame that Glenn McGrath feels he has to apologise for going hunting

    There is an article in a NZ hunting mag from around that time where he and Brett Lee were invited for a fallow hunt on a farm when touring NZ.
    McGrath hunts back in Australia and shoots game on his farm too.

    What a pussy, he should have defendended publicly his right to hunt and not be persecuted for it, I don't agree with people living there lives believing in some magical man that lives in the sky but publicly abusing them is discrimination or hate crime or cultural insensitivity.

    Say sorry to shoot a cull elephant .
    He should have stood by his actions .
    Too many do gooders around .
    Do gooders should get off there couch,s in 1st world countrys and come over here to live .
    Animal numbers have to be kepted in check.
    Each one of those safari outfits keep local villiagers employed ,which here can mean life or death.
    Its not a desire I have to shoot elephants or any of the big five but that is a personal choice.
    Its amazing how people see some animals .
    Don,t shoot a elephant but its fine to blaze away on a mob of goats or Roo,s
    Elephant numbers have to kepted in check even with poaching.
    So why not make some money from it ?
    Love walking my gun

    The cynic in me wonders if he was "outed" on social media, and that he apologised to protect the income stream for his Trusts/ Charities.

    seems to be a thing that if you are in the media you are subject to another set of rules; than the rest of us

    Who's for a fish? for instance
    Has a heart, brain, lungs (gills) poops etc ... whats the diff to a goat or elephant then

    All deserve respect - suspect a lot (a lot more??) die from illness, injuries, starvation - than a quick (ish) bullet
