    Wow, Tarz sure is judgmental of creatures of the natural world!

    This Tarzan, to be sure, was a man of his time…

    Nice Olympic hammer throw technique there in flinging the dead hyena, angle of launch is important for max distance.

    A new spin on Hyenas. No animals were harmed in this strip.

    Hey Tarzan, there was no reason to kill the Hyena. They were just doing what they were designed for. And Hyenas need love too.

    Tarzan is not unbiased,he has hated leopards since the begining so why not hyenas.

    Interferring with the “balance of nature” should be a no-no for Tarzan, but he’s always on a “mission” of sorts.
    Good thing he’s never worked for the LA archdiocese! :)> MolestersAGowa!!

    Tarzan had no business interfering with the natural order of things. Those hyenas were hunting for food, and just because he didn’t like them, it doesn’t make them evil or cowardly. As a matter of fact, hyenas are nocturnal hunters and are not in any way cowardly. Sure, they are ugly, and they smell bad because they are carrion eaters, but they are not inherently bad any more than a lion or a wolf.


    One thing I have always gotten a kick out of is seeing just how ignorant and prejudiced that Burroughs was. His early books show a remarkable lack of knowledge about African animals and a marked hatred toward the African natives. In later books he corrected a lot of his mistakes about nature, even to the point of identifying his great apes as Orangs, but he never did stop denigrating the Africans.

    Tarzan is a hypocrite. He kills animals often and yet he calls hyenas bloodthirsty. They have to live, too. They can’t choose to be vegetarian like people can. I don’t think I like him.

    Or, as I say after I take my ‘tonic’, “Get me to the perch on time.”

    All the Hyena comment have me laughing like a hy…., never mind.
    Katman, you mentioned going on safari yesterday. Very cool. I am not much of a hunter, but to tag along would be a great experience.
    I did get to see Bald Eagles swoop down and catch fish in Adak, Alaska. Never can get enough of that.
    They said the Ruskies would come in and raid the seal population. They would shoot the Bald Eagles just to PO the Americans.

    That is human arrogance showing through in the writing. Silly and stupid.

    You know humans, they disagree with the way Nature works they bollix it up to fit their preconceptions.
