Much like circuses, trophy hunting was once considered a perfectly acceptable way to spend your time. Both practices have had objectors for decades, but most people would likely just be fascinated to hear about a trophy hunter's adventures in Africa and other regions known to feature exotic animals.
As people become a lot more able to see the consequences of this hobby, however, they also find it harder to justify. This makes a boastful trophy hunter more likely to be met with disgust than any real interest or admiration.
Despite this shift in the public's ethics, particularly after the 2015 killing of Cecil the Lion, the practice still continues and attracts interest from hunters all over the world.
When evidence of these hunts are made public, the backlash is swift and passionate. So we can only imagine the fallout from a photo as shocking as the ones we'll see today.
