CEO is a tool

Watched a CNN interview today with the CEO of godaddy.com. Apparently he heads to Zimbabwe every year to shoot elephants. He says he does it solely for altruistic purposes, because the elephants are trampling the crops of local farmers there in Zimbabwe. The CNN presenter pointed that she had spoken with an elephant expert at the Columbus zoo and that expert had said that while the elephants are known for trampling the crops there are other methods to get them to stop without having to shoot them. These methods included electric fences (go daddy guy dismissed this as too expensive) and the use of honey bee's (again dismissed as ineffective).

The CEO guy justifies his killing by saying that he is doing this to save those poor people's crops and that those people are happy for his help. As far as I'm concerned, this CEO is a real tool - he thinks he knows more than an ELEPHANT EXPERT, who has studied elephants all his life. He is trying to justify his desire to shoot big game by clocking it in some, "I'm doing good," excuse. If he really wants to help these people why doesn't he help with more advanced farming methods, tools, schools, roads, hospitals, so they don't have to sustain on just those crops but could improve their lot in life.
