I wonder at what bite the realisation would kick in that they had just done something pretty damn useless.


I realize that the idea of killing an animal for enjoyment offends you, but if we're going to kill the elephants anyway, we might as well enjoy it.

We kill animals all the time for our enjoyment. Nobody HAS to eat meat, and pigs are quite intelligent animals, too.
I don't think somebody who enjoys eating bacon is in a moral position to criticize someone who enjoys shooting elephants.

Unless you're a vegetarian, I think your position lacks consistency.
