Cancel Show Celebrating Slaughter of Threatened Animals

African Lion

Target: Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel

Goal: Cancel plans for a new T.V. series celebrating a hunter of wild and threatened African animals

African animal killer and Texas cheerleader Kendall Jones has landed a hunting show on the Sportsman Channel, scheduled to air in 2015. Jones has made several trips to Africa to hunt elephants, lions, rhinos and other wild animals across the continent. She claims to be acting in the name of conservation, supporting her assertion with anecdotes about helping researchers and veterinarians during her trips. This claims mean little in light of the beaming photos of her posing alongside her recently-slaughtered prey. No amount of help she gives or research she assists can give back the lives of the innocent animals she killed in her search for fame.

Jones was eager to have a T.V. show, and Sportsman Channel has picked up her series. Sportsman Channel is therefore supporting Jones’ actions and promoting the idea that more Americans should go to exotic lands and “conquer wild beasts.”

Other organizations are currently working to prevent Jones from posting and promoting her conquests on Facebook. With African nations and reserve owners make a killing (literally and figuratively) from hunters like her, it will be much harder to stop these hunting practices abroad. But we are not powerless. Sportsman Channel says that they are “devoted to honoring a lifestyle that is celebrated by millions of Americans.” Well, it is our responsibility to show the channel that the lifestyle Jones promotes is also considered repulsive by millions of people around the world.

Call on the Sportsman Channel to cancel plans for Jones’ show, and to end its support for the senseless slaughter of threatened African animals.


Dear Mr. Harvey,

As the CEO of the Sportsman Channel you have the power to stop production of a new show featuring big-game hunter Kendall Jones. This young American has spent a considerable amount of time in Africa hunting vulnerable and endangered animals for sport. While your network may specialize in hunting, fishing and outdoor adventure Jones’ behavior and practices are far from what the average American wants to see. Sportsman Channel claims to be “devoted to honoring a lifestyle that is celebrated by millions of Americans.” It should be clear to you that the lifestyle which Jones promotes is not supported by millions of Americans.

Additionally the philosophy of a “Red, Wild, and Blue America,” which celebrates the great outdoors in connection with the American spirit, is contradicted by Jones’ actions and potential show. Not only is she destroying the great outdoors moreso than celebrating it, she does so without demonstrating the American spirit. The famed American spirit includes such characteristics as ingenuity, patriotism, diversity and tolerance. Jones displays none of these qualities when she hunts, kills and poses beside threatened and endangered wild animals.

Putting an end to this show would not only serve your company by preventing disgruntled customers, it would also genuinely benefit the conservation of wild African animals. The majority of American people are not interested in viewing the unnecessary killing of beautiful, exotic and wild animals. Plans for Jones’ show should be cancelled immediately.

    Luckily, we have already entered a new era where there is an all the more stronger divergence of opinion when it comes to the sportmanship of hunters….so, you will definitely be urged to reconsider your plans to air such a series by many in your target audience, I’m sure.

    Just wanna know why man kind is do ignorant why do we have to destroy everything

  3. Cecily Colloby. says:

    Mr Harvey, this woman is no more than a squalid little muderer with NOTHING to be proud of and if you allow this show to go ahead you will be condoning her disgusting and cruel activities.As Rebecca says, you have some massive balls….but you must have a brain the size of a peanut if you think killing wildlife is “entertainment”.

  4. Rita Grahn says:

    Typical cheerleader mentality – all boobs and no brains.

  5. Stan Benton says:

    It would seem this “Sportsman Channel” is as sick as this scumbag who brags online about murdering innocent animals, and even taunts them as they are dying. What is a “Sportsman” anyway? All I can figure out is somebody who murders innocent animals. If it were a “sport” both sides would agree to “play”, and have equal equipment?

  6. Linda Allan says:

    This girl should not be rewarded for her blood lust. She is devoid of any ethics or soul. Where is the “sport” in killing animals that have been hand raised and then drugged for trophy hunters to shoot? If she was truly interested in conservation she would have donated her money to an organization such as David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust or other similar organizations that are working to save the endangered species in Africa. Shame on her and shame on you if you don’t cancel that show.

  7. Why don’t they make a show where they drop her in a fenced enclosure with no weapons and a tiger or rhinoceros and see what happens? She is a wimp and a major loser trying to get her claim to fame all the while embarrassing the crap out of herself. Her IQ is probably 3.

    • I agree but I think you are being generous giving her an IQ of 3.
      Heartless horrible bitch who is ugly on all fronts.

    To Sportsman Channel — there’s no sport in the canned killing of endangered animals.
