  • Wildlife official who killed ‘whole family of baboons’ faces backlash calls for resignation

An Idaho Fish and Game commissioner has resigned after coming under fire for photos of a family of baboons and other animals he shot and killed on a hunting trip in Africa.

Blake killed numerous animals in Namibia, when there he said he received a list of species he could hunt and was required to pay a trophy fee for certain animals.

Another photo shows Mr Fischer beaming widely as he poses next to a dead giraffe, while another shows him grinning over the corpse of a dead leopard.

"First day she wanted to watch me, and "get a feel" of Africa", he wrote.

"'They killed a whole family, including small baboons, and I think that's revolting", Stonebraker said.

CBS News has reached out to Bill Fischer, Fred Trevey, and Idaho Fish and Game with requests for comment.

While claiming the photos were out of character, Fischer apologized and said he hoped the photos would "not harm the integrity and ethic" of the Idaho Fish and Game Department. I didn't do anything unethical.

"Slaughtering a family of baboons, including a baby baboon, and boasting of his conquest with photos is morally reprehensible", Kitty Block, acting president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and president and CEO of Humane Society International (HSI), told The Dodo. "It just puts a bad light on us".

Fischer, whose appointment was set to expire in 2022, also runs an agricultural and irrigation supply company in Boise and manufactures specialty archery equipment, according to his commission profile. "Accordingly, I have accepted his resignation from the Idaho Fish and Game Commission".

The Idaho Game and Fishing Commission has seven members, who are subject to appointment by Governor Otter, and further confirmation by the national Senate. "I didn't do anything immoral", Fischer said. Fischer killed them using a bow and arrows.

Former commission member Fred Trevey called on Fischer to resign. He told the Idaho Statesman that he "didn't do anything illegal".

"In every picture, we try to pose the animals in a natural position, wipe the blood off the mouth, place the rifle or bow over the bullet hole". "You shoot an animal, you take a picture of it". "So I shot a whole family of baboons".

While the photos may have adhered to proper hunting etiquette, other avid hunters, such as Steven Alder, were still troubled by what appeared to be the killing of an entire baboon family.

Steve Alder, executive director of Idaho For Wildlife, a pro-hunting group, told KBOI that Fischer's hunts were despicable. "You just don't do this".
