Crazy Bwana Wants To Shoot Up Africa
Hunter’s heart ached when he heard about the plight of the refugees from Darfur who were forced to flee to Chad by the big bad Janjaweed. He was determined to do something about it so he got on the horn to the American embassy in N’Djamena and asked if he could come over and feed the refugees. After being told he couldn’t hunt Africans Surviving The Game style in order to feed them to other Africans, he asked if he could hunt wildebeest and serve them to the refugees.
The response from Main State:
The embassy “welcomes Congressman Hunter’s interest in food assistance to Darfur refugees in Chad. Given the significant” U.S. aid in the world program, the embassy “would encourage the congressman to time his visit to coincide with an already scheduled food distribution.”
The embassy will “make the necessary arrangements for” Hunter to watch a food distribution in a camp.
“Regarding the Congressman’s desire to hunt wildebeest and distribute the cured meat to refugees, wildebeest are not present in Chad.”
“The Government of Chad does not permit the hunting of large mammals.”
Never mind the fact that the wildebeest population is decreasing at a rapid rate due to poaching.
The gentleman from California was not having that. He decided to “look at commercial hunting expeditions in Kenya, Tanzania and southern Africa”. The refugees should blame the State Department for their malnutrition.
A chimp sidekick would give the congressman carte blanche to shoot some white rhinos and silverbacks. He might want to consider this as he chooses his destination.
