WAR FOR PLANET OF THE APES
Idaho conservation official forced out after butchering baboon family
WILDLIFE bigwig Blake Fischer made a monkey out of himself and was forced to resign from Idaho’s Fish and Game Commission after boasting about wiping out an entire family of baboons during a kill-crazy African safari!
Despite taking an oath to protect critters as part of his cushy position, Fischer and his missus traveled nearly 10,000 miles from home — just to slaughter animals!
The Namibia safari death toll was 14 creatures — including the baboons, a giraffe, a leopard, an impala, a sable antelope, a waterbuck, a kudu, a warthog, an oryx and an eland.
Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter demanded the bloodthirsty butcher’s resignation after a photo of Fischer was leaked by pals, showing him beaming with his trusty bow and arrows as he posed over four dead baboons — with the littlest smeared in blood.
“So I shot a whole family of baboons,” he boasts in an email sent to friends.
Former commissioner Keith Stonebraker was disgusted by the slaughter, since fiendish Fischer is part of a commission sworn to “preserve, protect and perpetuate” wildlife in the woodsy state.
“They killed a whole family, including small baboons, and I think that’s revolting,” he fumes.
Former commissioner Fred Trevey also called for Fischer’s resignation, adding he didn’t think killing a family of primates was “sportsmanlike.”
Fischer first insisted he “didn’t do anything illegal, unethical or immoral,” despite using a bow and arrows, which can sometimes cause an animal to suffer as it bleeds out.
But the overwhelming outrage drove him to resign from the commission. He had been reappointed to a second fouryear term in June — three months before his slay spree.
In his resignation, Fischer admitted he’d used “poor judgement” during the hunt and “did not display an appropriate level of sportsmanship and respect for the animals I harvested.”
While he said his actions on the safari were “out of character,” he added, “it is best for the citizens of Idaho that I resign my post.”
