Mean Plains

By BURNBLUE  
One from Mongolia of the Eagle Hunter. These hunters hunt for fur in the winter time only...not for kicks or cruel pleasure.. Know its not gonna win any EPZ awards maybe too emotive. But its life at its harshest, but will remove if it offends people.

I'm sure it's a totally different life style in Mongolia and those furs are needed to stay warm. Probably don't waste any of the animal either. It's an excellent image. Doesn't offend in the least........Sandy

A superb image, nothing wrong with showing this, it's how they survive it's no more than us killing cattle etc for food,

A terrific image which gives us a fascinating insight into their culture and way of life, I can see this one gracing the pages of National Geographic. I can't see why this would offend anybody

This is a brilliant image showing the way of life of these people. There is nothing at all offensive in that.
