Funny man Jay Branscomb posted the photo below to his Facebook timeline with the following caption: “Disgraceful photo of a recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man.” It’s since gone viral with nearly 6,000 comments and more than 32,000 shares.
Obviously, the photo was posted as a joke, but I can’t help to think it was spurred to poke fun at the recent social media ordeal with Kendall Jones, the Texas Tech cheerleader who’s been blasted for posting photos of her hunts on Facebook.
Here are a few of the comments the post received that are sure to get you thinking hard about the human race.
“I will definitely share to stop this kind of abuse of these and all animals.”
“Disgraceful. No wonder dinosaurs became extinct. Sickos like this kill every last one of them as soon as they are discovered. He should be in prison.”
“Steven Spielberg, I’m disappointed in you. I’m not watching any of your movies again. ANIMAL KILLER.”
Even worse, some folks don’t know what an elephant looks like. I can kind of see them confusing a triceratops with a rhino—nope, never mind, they’re not even close in my book.
“You bastard ... killing an innocent elephant is wrong.”
In conclusion; it seems Facebook is exposing people for the idiots they really are. I sincerely hope most of these posts were intended to have some sarcasm, but part of me truly doubts it.
