Ok, how exactly did he look like a monkey?

Ok, this time I think I will have to break two cardinal rules, first to comment on a recent actual Japan news story and also be pushing the boundaries of human decency...

The news that I am thinking of is that earlier today in the Chiba prefecture of Japan a an elderly gentleman was shot to death by a fellow member of a hunting party out to shoot off some of the monkeys plaguing the countryside (with the official blessing of the authorities I probably should add). The elderly gentleman was shot to death in the chest from a range of 20-30 meters if you would believe the national media, and the reason for this little mishap given by the person holding the gun was "I mistook him for a monkey". If the monkeys here in Japan looked something more like the monkeys in the picture attached to this post, I would have a lot more sympathy for the whole deal, but the monkeys in Japan are pretty small and usually don't wear clothes, have guns or walk on two legs even, not to mention that they are considerably smaller than a grown human being...
I mean, sure, it's sad, but it makes me wonder how exactly this guy who got shot actually looked if he by any stretch could be mistaken for a monkey from 20-30 meters away...? The second thought that comes to mind is the possibility of him actually being a Manpanzee integrated into human society, but kept silent to not shake the foundations of humanity?

So many questions, I will eagerly follow to see how this mystery unravels...

That news story scared me for a moment - then I remembered Hazama Kanpei is running across Europe right now, so it couldn't have been him that got shot, and I felt better...

Come on, Dick Cheney shot a guy in the face while hunting birds! A monkey at least looks more like a human. Wonder if the guy will be charged.

Well, at least old DIck didn't claim that it was a bird! Maybe he thought it was a monkey

Not to mention american and german hunters who mix up cows and horses behind the fence with deers,farmers on a harvesting machine with foxes(but maybe he was a kitsune? )

...who are allowed to catch cats and train their dogs on them or use living ducks and foxes as practice tools for their dogs, who blast tons of lead into the pasture each year(no matter that there are iron bullets available) and the lead frizzles up into tiny pieces and makes the meat too toxic for consumption..but it is eaten nontheless...


...and hunters in germany are killing off red list animals whose numbers go down each year but than lament about the bad, bad kitties who kill off those poor animals and may make them extinct(which was proven to not be the case-cats do not prey on those animals)

..and than they say they want to protect nature,seems very logical when they kill off red list endangered animals after killing of a million pets each year who get 200 metres away from home(yeah than it is allowed to shoot pets,don´t let your pets outside-even your yard isn´t safe) whom they say are endagering said red list animals.

But maybe that explains why hunters shoot and kill dozens of their fellow huntsmen,to protect wildlife from their biggest enemy.

And because those kills are hunting accidents the hunters rarely are busted..yeah their license may be taken for a few years..

But hey,make a hunting license in 2 weeks time as a newbie completly with learning how to shoot and everything else and after those two weeks you have your license and you can go away with murder if you are not too dumb..like shooting your brother/inlaw/wife/son in your own home.

Just get in the woods with them,shoot them and act teary because it was an accident.

There are hundreds of 'funny' stories where hunters killed off other people because they were triggereager..or another hunter dared to shoot the buck the other hunter wanted/wife cheated/son was acting up/hunter was half blind/senile/agression issue/drunk


I think mistaking a farmer driving a big,heavy corn harvesting machine for a fox beats mistaking a person on foot for a monkey or a bird.

But maybe the hunter who shoot himself by accident is top(climbed over a fence and somehow blasted his head away)

Naaah..maybe the story where a hunter wanted to club a fox to death with his riffle and the panicked animal pushed the trigger with a hindpaw and killed the hunter is the champ here...
