Adam LaRoche Bagged a Mountain Lion While Bow Hunting

Baseball players enjoy their limited offseason time in a lot of different ways. Some like to chill in the sun. Some like to relentlessly work out. And then there’s Adam LaRoche, who likes to go out in the wilderness and shoot at large animals with a bow.

This was bad news for one particular mountain lion.

It’s not real manly back-to-nature stuff unless you pick up the carcass of the animal you just shot through the heart with an arrow, sling it over your shoulders and carry it back to camp.

Ron Swanson approves. PETA, probably not so much.

I’m not going to get into the whole debate over the ethics of shooting animals for sport. I just know that a stuffed mountain lion looks really great in the living room. It’s a heck of a conversation starter.

I wish I had a stuffed mountain lion. I would stand it next to the recliner and gently stroke its neck as I sipped my bourbon and stared into a crackling fire.

Dang, I almost feel like going out in the woods and killing something. But the heck with that. It’s freaking cold out there. And there are mountain lions.

    What a disgusting display by a macho moron; definitely not a great day for the mountain lion!
    Hmmmm, so Adam LaRoche likes to kill big animals with bow & arrow, carry them back to camp slung over his broad manly shoulders – what’s the alternative, shoot, kill and leave carcasses in the woods? DUH!
    Dan Zinski, a macho moron wannabe, was unwilling to get into a debate over the ethics of shooting animals for sport. I don’t blame him, it’s an oxymoron, not easily defended unless wanting to come across as an illogical, irrational and unfeeling jerk! Hunting is not a sport in which willing teams/individuals agree to participate, following a set of rules. Hunting is NOT a sport at all!
    Let’s arm wildlife, sit back and see how many of these brave “men” would take the chance of getting hurt or killed, instead of inflicting it on unarmed wildlife…fuggeddaboudid!

    Manly back to nature stuff? Really I think its more the mark of an insecure individual that sits in a tree stand or blind and ambushes an unsuspecting animal as it goes about its quiet enjoyment of life and the environment. What does he get? bragging rights and he can sit in his apartment , trying to impress his man-fans as they drink a few beers , pointing at this beautiful animal that should be alive not stuffed.

      Has anyone ever wondered why there are so many ads for Cialis or Viagra in hunting magazines….just asking!
