Go Daddy CEO elephant hunting video sparks controversy
Time blogger Bryan Walsh gives his account and opinions on a recent video released by Go Daddy CEO Bob Parsons. The video was taken from Zimbabwe, where Parsons had shot and killed an elephant while handing out GoDaddy swag to local residents.
While Bob Parsons defended his actions, stating that the elephant was a menace to the locals and ruined crops, animal rights groups have called the actions deplorable. PETA responded to the action by handing out their first ever "Scummiest CEO of the year" award, claiming that there are "many humane ways to keep elephants away from crops."
The video is available at Bryan Walsh's blog. It was not embedded in the story as it is hosted on Go Daddy's Videos.me, the use of which could be seen as inappropriate by those protesting Bob Parsons' actions.
