KILLING BEAUTY

From THE LOCAL (Germany):

Officials in the western German state of Rhineland-Palatinate on Wednesday gave hunters permission to shoot an escaped panther that has been on the loose near the Belgian border for almost a year. Both the Koblenz regional environmental protection office and city licence agency (SGD) have approved hunters’ rights to kill the big cat, they said.

Tranquilising the animal is not a good enough option, officials said, because it could flee in the seven minutes it takes for the drugs to take hold.

  1. Tranquilising the animal is not a good enough option, officials said, because it could flee in the seven minutes it takes for the drugs to take hold.

    So why not a dart w/ a tranquilizer AND a tracking device? [Geez, we have to lecture the GERMANS on the virtues of technology? O_o]

  2. It’s on the Belgian border?

    Here’s my plan:

    Get a bunch of those Belgian RC priests and bishops, and send them in wearing suits of raw meat. You won’t catch the panther, but a greater threat to humanity will be dealt with.
