NBC aired an NRA-sponsored show in which the host kills an elephant by shooting it in the face. This week’s episode of ‘Under Wild Skies,‘ the host Tony Makris – a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association – is shown hunting an elephant in Botswana. Makris fires on the elephant several times before killing it, laughing at the moment the animal dies.
Is hunting elephants worse than hunting other animals? Should NBC be taking money from gun lobbyists? Get bantering below people.
