June Buggie Hisses and Purrs!

Meow! My name is June Buggie and I have something to say.

HISSSSSS!!!  To the King of Spain for his hunting trip to kill animals in Botswana.  Here he is with an elephant he killed. He also killed two water buffalo.  While on his little hunting safari he broke his hip and had to head home early.

Really? THIS is the example you set for others? Killing an animal that in no way threatens humans with harm?

You make me sick.

However, a loud purrrrrrrrr goes out to Lush Cosmetics for teaming with the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International to campaign to end cosmetics testing on animals.

Lush Cosmetics not only refuses to use any ingredients in their products that were tested on animals, but they actively campaign against animal testing.


It’s nice to know that there ARE some people out there who are making a living while doing the right thing. You make a little kitty proud.

  5. June Buggie, I’m not sure about the cat language, but I’ve got to say you’re right on with your comments. I wonder if another elephant snuck up and kicked the King of Spain in the hip.

  6. Apparently, he is on the board of the WWF! Stupid man!

  7. Oh no…..how scary and sad to see the pic of the elephant…poor elephant…
    Lush is very popular in Japan, too and my mom loves their products, so we’re glad that they do very right things for us, animals!!! Purrrrrrr….Ooops! I forgot that I AM a dog! 🙂

  8. You are so right, JuneyBug. We just don’t get why humans want to hunt and kill. Makes to sense at all.

  9. can only be thankful that his broken hip actually saved other animals. no wonder Spain is in such a mess.

  10. OMG! That is just so sad it made my heart sink! To think his only payback was a broken hip. 😦

  11. I didn’t let Ellie read this- it would make her cry! The World Wildlife Fund is trying to remove him as their president in Spain too. There is nothing sporting about killing an animal with your gun. It is just GROSS!

  12. Hard to see. We are totally against hunting and believe animals should be armed. Our family actively speaks out about this and we take any politically action we can. Nasty “sport”!!!!

    • I do have a different stance. I believe that people who hunt to feed themselves and their family are no different than cats when they hunt mice or birds to eat, provided the animal had a good quality of life beforehand. But canned hunting, and hunting animals for the trophy are examples of human greed and are simply unacceptable to me.

      And only humans engage in such behavior.

  13. Hi June Buggie and Rumpydog, thank you for visiting our blog yesterday, I think we are both friends of Otis’. I’m following you now and look forward to getting to know you better.

    Very sad post…sometimes I have no idea what people are thinking. One wonders how something this barbaric can be permitted to continue

  14. Cats cats said it just like we feel. That is all so sad and there really should be a way to stop these crimes. It is more than sad, it is gross. Hope you have a great week end.

  15. Such a sad picture of that poor elephant. I’ll never understand how anyone can take pleasure in hunting. Glad you wrote about this. I briefly heard that he apologized for his hunting trip, but didn’t know any of the details. Sometimes karma shows up in weird places… like a broken hip 😉

  16. Oh this is disgusting June Buggie, and I have not sympathy what so ever with his broken hip… Only good manners and Karma are holding my thoughts back to what he should have broken.. These people call themselves civilised and the Elite.. Well they just hit the Bottom of the deck here in Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary.. I must remember what goes around comes around, and no matter what my thoughts on the matter, I know that the Universe will have its own day… And he will be accountable.
    My daughter spent time out in Africa as a volunteer on a Cheetah Sanctuary, and I have some beautiful photos of her and Elephants as she was allowed to walk along side a mother with her calf.. My heart just bled a little more today… When will we understand that we are ALL of us ONE.. both the Animal Kingdom and us… not it seems until we destroy everything ..
    Thank you for bringing our attention to the plight of endangered species still being hunted needlessly for sport.. Sickeningly ~Sue

  17. I can’t look at that pic of these silly men with guns and this poor elephant without feeling sick. 😦

    Take care

  19. Hey June Buggie, Jet here.

  21. Part of me wants to say I hope he never walks again, but that’s putting a lot of negativity out there. I just hope he’s learned his lesson and doesn’t do that anymore. The latest I heard about him is that he went to Russia to shoot a domesticated bear that they got drunk and let loose. Sick.

  22. That is so horrible. The King of Spain should be ashamed of himself. I do not agree with trophy hunting whatsoever.

    However, BRAVO to Lush Cosmetics! I will be on the lookout for some of their products to buy. =D

  23. OMG! That is such a sad picture! That poor, poor elephant.

  24. It is disgusting, in this day and age there is no need for this type of trophy hunting, it is not necessary for survival especially for the King of Spain and hunting for sport is truly abhorrent!

  26. Serves him right that he broke his hip!
    What would you expect though, from the King of a country whose national sport is torturing bulls for the amusement of the public?
    About cruelty-free cosmetics, my human likes AHAVA products , which are made solely from minerals from the Dead Sea and are not only not tested on animals but also contain no animal products or by-products.

  31. Must go online to find out where I can purchase Lush Cosmetics. And I have been getting a lot of tweets about the elephant-killing King of Spain.
