In Response to the Colorado Hunter Fraternity.
Dear Activists and Conservationists
Recently an article was published via ENM that depicted a picture with Madame C. Argys within titled Hunting is Not Conservation. The article published sometime between February 2014 and March 2014 seems to have had quite an unpleasant effect on the majority of hunters within Colorado, United States of America.
Environmental News and Media publish very sensitive and moving documents that can or have had a profound effect both to the Animal Rights Activist, member of the public, Madame C. Argys and many hundreds of Colorado Hunters and Huntresses.
ENM takes no responsibility for any form of threatening behaviour/anti social behavior or “bullying” name calling from activist to hunter and hunter to activist with regards to their articles. ENM cannot police the hundreds of thousands of activists online or via the ground. It is down to the individual to take that responsibility and behave accordingly when online. The article is no different to that of anyone author publishing within the media a document on an animal abuser or thief. Uproar will occur no matter what, when, or written by whom.
The hunter fraternity as with those that harm animals to those that take pleasure in destroying our natural environment must understand that those whom are trying to preserve the environment will scrutinise at any time. Regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, or gender. Exposing those that do harm, or those that wish to corrupt childrens minds with graphic hunting photography and non-factual documentation.
Not everyone derives from the United States and some 900 million people use Facebook everyday with a further two billion using the internet daily. Public outcry locally and internationally will occur. Those that believe what they are undertaking is “morally correct” may be seen by others as “unethical” thus forming debate.
ENM has not bullied, threatened, nor attacked anyone Colorado hunter or huntress. They have though placed within the public domain a rather crude document that details on hunting, feminine hunting and unethical hunting. However.
Environmental News and Media will state now. Animal Rights Activists AND Hunters that engage in threatening behavior must cease and desist now. Failing this the ENM publisher will no longer document on such articles freely of which a “paid subscription” will be required.
No evidence has been put to ENM of alleged bullying, cyber intimidation, or harassment from activists to hunters based on ENM’s article[s]. However Madame Argys and her friends have engaged activists and instructed the US media and Hunter bloggers to now attack and slander Activists - yet they feel threatened?
ENM will continue to publish what they see as required for public debate. ENM will also defend themselves should US media or Hunter Blogs wish to engage ENM and not the “online activist community”. International Animal Rescue Foundation America will also defend ENM too of which we ask the organisations majority of some 5 million supporters to stand with us.
An update will be made by Environmental News and Media via its twenty three sites off Facebook soon. ENM states again that all hunters AND activists that participate in attacking online one-another must cease now. This behavior is uncalled for of which ENM ask for “public debate” via the Colorado Hunter sites off Facebook that have defended Madame C. Argys shooting of a Mountain Lion for food. Them sites can be viewed below. Madame C. Argys states that she requires non-chemical toxified meat to be fed to her family. There are some 300 organic farms though within Colorado. This Lion that was hunted for sheer sport as her friend explained (blasted to infinity) and not for food as it has been quoted.
You can rightfully debate here on what you believe is ethically moral. should the US media now take interest in this then they too can see why Activists are sick and tired of seeing such graphic animal cruelty of which is not conservation or sustainable utilization.
Please refrain from attacking the hunter, their associates or families. Please only engage in mature adult debate. Maybe then the CNN news will understand where conservationists and activists are coming from.
