The part with the elephant killed me. :( I know it's a way of life there, but Jesus Christ it's hard to watch.

I did a search but didn't find anything, so I apologize if the video has been posted before.

Sorry for the redundant title: "African tribes... in Africa." No duh. lol

It's basically an episode of adventure time, but without the candy, whimsy, color, catch phrases, humor, snails or Joe DiMaggio...

At least they don't make an industry out of confining animals in cages much smaller than they should be and pumping whatever they can out of them till they die(Milk, Eggs)....

Hunting is natural and no more crueler or depressing than how we get meat on our tables today...

Not that I feel at all ashamed at eating grocery meats... I fight anyone who gets in between me and my bacon!

This. I kind of wish everyone would go Zuckerberg and only eat meat that they kill, descale, and pluck themselves. I hate it when meat is described as 'protein'...you're eating an animal, think about it as you do it.

Not even gonna watch. But what do you expect a tribe to do? They can't exactly go to the vegan supermarket.
They are part of the natural food chain, and could well be killed and eaten themselves (e.g. lion, crocodile).
So while this is indeed unsettling and I hope that someday every tribe will have arrived on a civilized level, it isn't that much different from a cheetah killing a gazelle.

What does "civilized" mean? What we do? Lol

I just hope that one day they'll be trained to better incapacite the animal instead of the "stab it until it dies" method they seem to employ.

True, true.

But you can't fault a man for still feeling bad when he sees an animal dieing a slow painful death.

Add to that the fact that elephants are an endangered species. Not the fault of these tribes off course. They're practically the only people who kill elephants for legit reasons. But again, it makes for a sad video to watch.

Yep, this is why I don't get vegetarians that don't eat meat just because a animal is dying for that meat. I can totally understand it if people don't eat meat because they don't like the taste or don't agree with how the animals they eat are treated. But to not eat meat because animals have to die is bizzarre to me.

I think about the animals every time I eat them. I think about how tasty and delicious they are.

Of course death is sad. No one suggest people be excited or happy by watching things die.

However the sentiment that our methods of putting meat on the table is any less depressing or cruel is beyond me.

Humans aren't the only animal that hunts. Carnivores are just the dicks of the animal world.

Hunter gatherer methods are arguably less cruel than new farming methods.

It's the most endangered large animal in the continent but it's not exactly on the endangered list.

Killing it faster? More merciful than letting it bleed out from a few wounds till it dies.

But neither I nor the person I quoted implied this.

I'd say that, in general, we westerners treat our animals far worse during their lives ("product not yet in stores"), but the method to kill them is probably less painful and more swift than stabbing a huge animal slowly until it dies. The end result is still not in our favor though. At least in the case of tribes hunting, the animal had a decent chance at a good life in its own environment. We offer nothing like that to animals.

They are. According to this site. Upon your question I decided to search some more, and this site lists them as "vulernable", one notch above endangered.
