Bob Parsons, the CEO of web hosting company GoDaddy.com, recently posted horrific footage of himself hunting and killing an elephant during a vacation to Zimbabwe. Worse, he seems to think himself a hero and defender of the Zimbabwean people he is visiting. But Parson's high powered rifle and ill-considered vacation aren't the solution to anyone's problems.

Elephants are intelligent, incredibly social animals, and their packs have been devastated by poaching and people like Bob Parsons hunting them for perverse entertainment.

He's no hero for his violent acts.

Elephants are intelligent, incredibly social animals, and their packs have been devastated by poaching and people like Bob Parsons hunting them for perverse entertainment. Stop elephant hunting for entertainment.

      The "hunt and kill everything" days of Teddy Roosevelt are long gone and should be. Elephants are wonderful, intelligent creatures who live in multigenerational female groups. To mindlessly kill an elephant is to destroy the cohesion of these groups, which are necessary for surviva. It is an ugly, vicious act.

      The killing of these sentient beings that have needs, wants and desires and close familial ties on top of that is indefensible. Their lives are important to them. as yours is to you. This is not sport. This is not entertainment. Murdering them to feed one's own ego is sickening and despicable. Bob Parsons is a legend in his own mind.
