Nearly 100 animals were recently killed on a property in South Africa, shot dead in an activity so unseemly that even those who paid top dollar to participate in it couldn't bear to show their faces.
Last week, 13 wealthy European tourists descended on three farms near the rural town of Alldays, where one of the most shameful events ever conceived had been planned for their amusement - a "driven hunt." Unlike traditional hunting, in which target animals have a reasonable chance of escape, all the group had to do was aim and shoot at the terrified targets who were forced into their line of sight.
"No hunting actually took place in the practical sense of the word," Paul Oxton, founder of the Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation, told The Dodo. "There's really no sport in it."
