Turkish hunter’s pose with massive boar divides social media users

A hunter has posed for the camera after killing a 400-kilogram boar in northern Turkey, causing a divide between social media users. 

Villagers in the Arıönü district of the Bartın province sought local hunters after boars damaged their crops.

Erol Akmısır, a hunter, tracked down a 400-kilogram boar with his dogs and killed it with a headshot.

“It suddenly appeared in front of me. It was 50-60 meters away when I shot it,” Akmısır told Demirören News Agency on Oct. 4.

The man’s trophy pose stirred a debate on Turkish social media.

While some users stressed the man had hunted a “harmful” animal, others protested that such poses “glorify violence.”
