Just so everyone knows, I love caribou. I think they are beautiful, I like the way they move, and I love the way they taste.
Then I am in the gym today on the hampster wheel, and what else but the newest man vs. wild comes on. He is somewhere above the arctic circle, they never said where, but he did say stuff about the local inuit people, so he was in canada.
Anywho. He finds a herd of what they call reindeer (aka caribou in normal people speak), and sets a trap. Makes the herd run, he snares on, gets it to wind itself around a tree and kills it. So up to now, I don't really have a problem. He cuts the throat, bleeds it, drinks the blood as he is bleeding out. Me, I still don't have a problem, it was a fairly quick kill so the animal didn't suffer, drinking the blood was just one of his dumb stunts, why it was necessary?? Who knows.
So he makes a little cart out of sticks to drag the carcass through the snow when he is done dressing it (though they only showed him opening it up and ripping the guts out, so I'm pretty sure he didn't dress it) The next scene, he is dragging the carcass down a ledge into a creek bottom, with absolutely no purpose to go down there, the carcass and his little stick cart flips, and goes into the water. He says it's stuck and there is nothing else he can do.
Part that really really really really really really really pisses me off: he cuts off one front quarter, and leaves the rest in the water, because he says it's stuck and he can't get to it.
So there you have video evidence of him practicing wanton waste of a big game animal. On national TV. So, he should be in jail. Try and watch it, it
s $^*% up.
