CEO Bob Parsons, head of internet web hosting company GoDaddy.com and now elephant killer, got a permit in a village in Zimbabwe to shoot and kill an elephant that was destroying crops and harassing villagers.
The graphic video shows him shooting and killing the elephant while other elephants were heard screaming and running away.
After Parsons posed smiling over the elephant’s corpse for a photo, the elephants body was then tore apart by villager’s wearing GoDaddy.com hats going after the animals meat while AC/DC’s “Hell’s Bells” plays in the background.
Animal rights activists are outraged and PETA has named Parsons “Scummiest CEO OF the Year”.
PETA’s vice president Tracy Reiman released a statement:
“I am writing to present you with PETA’s first ever Scummiest CEO Of The Year Award (your certificate is on the way).
You deserve the award for your egregious disregard for the life of the elephant you shot and killed for your personal enjoyment.
Such behavior only shows a poverty of understanding and a deep insecurity, perhaps in your own masculinity.
Non lethal methods are available to protect crops from elephants left hungry because of their disappearing habitat.”
GoDaddy CEO Parsons fired back at PETA, releasing a statement saying:
“You are completely misinformed. Elephants in Africa, especially in Zimbabwe…exist in tremendous numbers. They are in absolutely no danger of becoming extinct. The bigger problem is that there is way too many of them.
Parsons claimed he was doing the villagers a favor by protecting their crops and providing them with meat and food.
