Apparently the prince who is currently protecting endangered animals in South Africa was a big game hunter like the rest of the royal family when growing up. Here’s a picture of the prince in 2004 killing a water buffalo. We can assume that over the last 12 years, the little prince has finally matured and had a change of heart to go against a family history of hunting animals to become an animal guardian.
Whether you think he’s a hypocrite or he has finally come to his senses, we should still give him credits for turning around and going against a family tradition. Most hunters never experienced that change of heart and remain cruel, much less to see someone of a high profile to make that change which will for sure inspire others to change as well. The animal kingdom needs all sorts of guardians to raise the awareness and inspire others to join the ranks of animal guardians.
