Idaho Fish and Game Commissioner Blake Fischer became the center of an internet controversy after photos of a September hunting trip began spreading online this past Tuesday (October 16). While on the trip, he killed many animals, including a giraffe, a leopard, and an entire family of baboons, before snapping pictures of himself proudly grinning over their bodies.


Retired Fish and Game Commissioner Gary Power said Fischer's actions were shameful:

The photo of him and the baboons, a family, it's absolutely deplorable and totally contradicts everything that game management is about.

Twitter was disgusted by Fischer's acts of killing:



Under pressure from around the world, Governor Butch Otter of Idaho asked for Fischer's resignation and received it.

This was great news for animal lovers everywhere!



The Idaho governor delivered a statement saying Fischer had exercised bad judgement.

In his letter of resignation, Fischer apologized for so me of his actions.

For many on Twitter, however, Fischer's apology didn't sound quite right.





Fortunately, the good people of Idaho won't have to deal with Fischer any longer.

Hopefully, their next Game Commissioner will have a slightly higher opinion of beautiful wild animals.
