Whenever someone modifies the normal methods of animal destruction, there are always ninnies who are going to cry out about it. That’s already happening with Bradenton’s own Courtland Hunt.
Hunt recently posted a video on YouTube of him wasting a lionfish with with a modified Glock handgun. First thing, if you’ve never eaten a lionfish, stop being an asshole and seek one out. Secondly, if the goal is to chow down — as it was here — then what the hell does it matter how the fish meets its maker? Still, that didn’t stop the whining and the “like to see someone do that to him” chants start on the comments section over at the Palm Beach Post.
Look, environmentalists, we’re not going to be running out of lionfish any time soon. At least not down here. Earlier this year, we even held a Lionfish Day celebration that ended in the removal of tens of thousands. Unfortunately, Florida is a place filled with all kinds. Hunters, fishermen, and the people who hate them. Ah, put a sock in it, animal lovers, and bask in the ingenuity.
