You do know you proved my point don’t you?
She got separated from a group and was then on her own!!!!..
So how did the group protect her?
First tip- sierra club = granola heads
Second tip- she a had partial rescue items-so she had been in a outdoor store
Third- how come no map and compas?
Fourth – no dedicated team leaders and watchers
And no spot device
Ming look it up on line
You should get one, but they cannot help u with poor logic
Butt you’ll know where your head is stuck

The article stated she WASN’T BY HERSELF. SHE WAS WITH A GROUP OF HIKERS AND THEN GOT SEPARATED. Is it too hard to read a friggin’ article before you post??

Suzanne Young – you are a total ding-bat parent! I feel sorry for your children.
Did it ever occur to you that there might not have been massive plumes or ‘plums’ as you would say of smoke. Maybe the jet crashed into the water rather quickly and uneventful and broke up on impact and the rest sank to the bottom of the sea floor.

And we care 0 about Bristol too. The feeling is mutual. Sarah must be so proud of her. You can take the trash out of the trailer park but you can’t take the trailer out of the trash.

Very strange concert venue. I’d hate to play that one! One second you’re playing a C aug 9th chord and then the next second you don’t know your name and you’re drooling. No thanks – I’ll skip that gig!
according to one report he had no idea about them dating

I agree. I do not know if the beast was going to die. Maybe, maybe not. I have no idea. But I do know if I was the person to kill a giraffe I would not pose beside it and smile. That’s a bad look on the lady and she’s playing CYA by doing a Ted Nugent – saying the animal is 100% being used for good just to take the heat off of her.
It may have been a mercy killing but that doesn’t give you an excuse to pose and smile by the beast. It’s dumb.
Ming, rest assured the beast was going to die – circle-of-life kinda thing.
She was offered a gift – of nature, and of service to others -and I am comfortable her explanation is likely true.
I’m also pretty sure the permit for that animal wasn’t inexpensive and there is typically no relief for older animals. The permit system there is a management tool just like a hunting license and harvest limits are here in the States. Every cent of the permit fee goes to support conservation where money is scarce.
So, despite the histrionics of some, I congratulate her for what she did and cheer her for celebrating her opportunity, she earned it.
Umm… yes it does.
The grin is not “i killed this dude” the grin is “I just fed an African village!" They were about to take this guy out because he was disbanded from his herd and old and not reproducing anyhow and he would have been torn apart by lions or hyenas or whatever else in a matter of days because they actually KNOW what happens to disbanded giraffes, SO they decided to preserve him and use the meat and bones and also get $20000 from a westerner just for letting her pull the trigger instead. They would have killed it anyway for these reasons but cmon there was a westerner here who paid $20000 to pull the trigger plus bought the tribe’s guide services and helped us with other things…
I could go on but if you have read this far and still don’t understand, then you’re lost.
The Africans do not tolerate poaching. They literally worship these animals. This animal “hunt” was sold for a reason, and the evidence says it is what they said – he was disbanded and about to die anyhow.
So, if you’re going to be illogically pissed off at someone, go be pissed off at the Africans who decided this giraffe be killed. I’m sure they will explain to you the circle of life and how much they respect these animals, etc, which INCLUDES harvesting their bodies for food, jewelery, tools, etc.

Can’t view the youtube link – says it’s blocked in my country (USA) on copyright grounds. WTF?!?
So $20 in 1955 is equivalent to $175 now!
A family of 4 in 1955 would pay the equivalent of $700 (in 2015 dollars)!
The prices have kept up with the economy and inflation. It’s just that alot of people’s pay has not increased with inflation like ticket prices have.

@bikerr – I’ll spell it correctly when you learn to spell ‘biker’ with one ‘r’ and shave that Taliban beard.

Displacedsoutherner – your post is really ignorant. I vote for principles not for who I think will win against a democrat. Those of us who vote for principles don’t’ have to hold our nose when we vote. It’s your kind of thinking that has got us where we are – by voting for the lesser of 2 evils.
I see you’re not satisfied with the condition we are in – so why do YOU keep voting the way YOU do? You have YOURSELF to blame. Look in the mirror and YOU grow up!

I won’t choose one dicktater over another dicktater just because there’s an ‘R’ after his name.
