Kid Rock & Ted Nugent proudly posed with a mountain lion they killed

This will come as a shock to no one, but Kid Rock is good buddies with Ted Nugent. They both arrive with a Sarah Palin word salad endorsement, so this friendship is in the stars. Kid went hunting with Ted. They killed a mountain lion for funsies. They posed with the dead animal, and Nugent proudly posted evidence to his Facebook page. (That photo is in the gallery below.)

And what a grand conservation New Year it is! HAIL my MotorCity boy KidRock for saving all those muledeer elk & livestock by whacking this magnificent mountain lion. I can hear the braindead squawkers already with their obscene denial that killing lions is wrong. Its legal its necessary its good its beneficial its a damn riot! And these lovely pigwhackers did same on the TX swine while young Rachael Byrd arrowed this fine Oryx with the Bruce Cull tribe! Praise the mighty life giving renewable protein/sport/trophy/FUN! 2015 be good good year so far!

[From Ted Nugent on Facebook]

Ted brags about his boy shooting this animal like it makes him a man. Like he killed it with his bare hands instead of going “pew pew” with one of his 4,502 guns. Ted calls this a “conservation” killing, but he’s full of it. Ted and Kid Rock wanted to kill something, and they’re not going to eat this majestic animal. They simply wanted a nice trophy.

Kid’s making a grand spectacle of himself this week. He called out Seth Rogen and Michael Moore over American Sniper. Details come from Rolling Stone: “F*** you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of sh*t and your uncle would be ashamed of you. Seth Rogen … I hope you catch a fist to the face soon.” Great, it’s a battle of the douchebags.

Kid Rock is capable of disappearing between albums. We haven’t heard from him in a long time. All of a sudden, he’s bashing gay people and pulling the shenanigans mentioned in this post. I guess he’s drumming up controversy to promote his dumb new album.

    Of course. Crappy music, crappier hobbies.

    I will never understanding shooting wild animals just to hang them in your living room.smh

    • Ladybird83 says:

      Mountain Loins are a nuisance in many parts of the United States. They kills family pets as well as livestock that ranchers and farmers need to make a living on. In Colorado ranchers gladly allow game hunters on their property to kill predator animals to save their animals. People do the same with coyotes. A friend of mine watched her dog get attacked in her own suburban back yard in California. Hunting may be evil to some but it is necessary for the ecosystem. Please remember that people. A mountain loin is not a friendly kitty.

      • Kiddo says:

        Yeah, but being an absolute incomprehensible dick about it isn’t a requirement for a license.

      • doofus says:

        In NJ, that actually IS a requirement for a driver’s license.

      • Kiddo says:

        lol doofus, and the governor eligibility, as well, it seems.

      • lemon says:

        Mountain lions are very important for ecological balance, like wolves and coyotes. They’re not pests if you’re not a rancher. Ranchers dont care about nature. At Yellowstone, the return of wolves has had a beneficial impact on everything from from turtles to beavers to trees. Ranchers would rather they were hunted back to Canada. It’s just perspective.

      • K says:

        Exactly. +100 for what Lemon said. If these so called hunters were truly about conservation, they would have had themselves neutered.

      • MtnbabeMT says:

        Well I do mostly agree with Lemon, I actually reside just outside of Yellowstone park. The wolves have been largely beneficial for the park but they have also destroyed other ecosystems. It’s important to remember that nature is a balance 😊. The problem with the wolves is that they don’t stay in the park, and they invade other areas like northeastern Washington and north Idaho. This IS problematic for farmers, but there is a foundation that will refund ranchers/farmers the price of livestock if the wolves kill something. I forget what the name of it is but it does exist! Ranchers do not take advantage of it quite often.
        Basically the problem is wolves are now where they have not been in ages and appearing in rural towns and farms.

      • Wren says:

        Maybe this was a problem animal, we don’t know. I’m all for the balance of nature, but sometimes predators get a taste for livestock and/or pets and they exclusively hunt our animals instead of the wild game they are meant to be eating and controlling the population of by thinning their numbers and moving the herds along.

        Based on the (rather illiterate) FB post, it rather sounds like this particular mountain lion had become a threat to local ranchers. Hunting is NOT easy, and it’s called a sport for a reason. People take (sometimes tasteless) pictures with the animals they’ve killed because it takes a lot of effort, skill and luck to do.

      • SuzAlex says:

        “An overwhelming number of studies have clearly demonstrated that sport hunting of lions not only does not increase the public’s safety, it also does not reduce depredation on livestock or other domestic animals, and in fact appears to be responsible for the increase in human/lion conflicts in regions where lion mortality is excessive.” the mountain lion population in the United States is nearly endangered and unlikely to exceed 30,000. And, many of those lions depend upon severely fragmented and degraded habitat, are in severe danger of over-hunting and road kill, are imperiled by intolerance of their presence on the landscape, and are so few and unconnected they are on the edge of genetic viability. People are responsible for the death of more than 3,000 mountain lions in the U.S. each and every year.” – Mountain Lion Foundation

      • doofus says:

        “Hunting is NOT easy”

        um, I beg to differ. when you sit in a perch in a tree, waiting for an animal to walk by, it’s pretty easy, there is no “skill” or “effort” involved. or if you’re in a car/on an ATV, chasing the animal in a fenced area (a la Nugent on his massive property), it’s pretty easy. or if you’re in a helicopter (a la Palin), it’s pretty easy. In the Nugent/Palin scenarios, the only skill that’s needed is aim, and you don’t need to shoot an animal to prove you have good aim.

        take away the hunter’s gun or bow/arrow, give them a stick (or another blunt instrument) and turn them loose on foot to stalk the animal…THAT would be a sport. THAT would take skill and effort.

        god, Nuge is such a douche. if the lion is “magnificent”, why KILL it? I will never understand that mentality. “what a beautiful, magnificent animal…LET’S SHOOT IT AND HANG IT ON OUR WALL.”

      • CH2 says:

        quite frankly, human being are the biggest pests known to existence. We’ve managed to destroy the entirety of the earth in the last 100 years. Maybe someone should hunt humans to balance things out.

        Also, I loathe these two “humans”… they can go first.

    • doofus says:

      CH2, I remember seeing a sign once that said “Humans are the only species on Earth that ACT LIKE IT”

      truer words have never been spoken.

    • Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

      Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how some of the regular posters on this site are freaking experts on everything.

      • M says:

        I appreciate the discussion! What is the point of your post- anything to add? I live in a urban environment & had a reaction to the article but I’ve never dealt with mountain lions- ever. My only wildlife experiences in daily life have been a few raccoons & sewer rats. I like hearing different experiences & povs. But, I have dealt with a#%holes in my life so that I know about! Tedd nugent can kiss my a%# & fall in a deep hole somewhere.

      • Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

        I too appreciate the discussion. But don’t get too down on Ted. What you have understand about him is that he’s a liberal and his public persona is a construct to discredit conservatives. Much like Stephen Colbert did on his show. The fact that a lot of you don’t realize this is a testimony to the genius that is Ted.

      • M says:

        Once he sang about raping a 13-yr-old I wrote him off.

      • Misprononounced Name Dropper says:

        Which is exactly what you’re supposed to do!

      • laura in LA says:

        Ted’s definitely NOT a Liberal.

        Methinks you’re confusing this word with “Libertarian”.

        And since you proceeded to talk about it as if your knowledge and opinion matter more than anyone else’s here…

        What’s *your* expertise?

      • Misprononounced Name Dropper says:

        @laura: An expert is someone who knows more and more about less and less. The people I’m critical of seem to have opinions on everything, so by definition aren’t experts on anything.

  3. Winterberry says:

    Who can feel proud of an accomplishment like that?

    • pix says:

      Seriously disgusting human beings. That photo makes me want to cry.

      • Blackcat says:

        Me too! I can’t even look at it-it’s heart wrenching to me. They disgust me.

      • AnkitaH says:

        Seriously, its not a trophy, It was a goddamn beautiful animal. Seeing them smile while holding up the poor dead thing like its an amazing achievement makes me want to punch something/someone.

    • spaniard says:

      Beyond disgusting, makes me want to cry too. We are worse than a virus to this planet. Can’t believe that someone can feel pleasure in killing, these scum are sociopaths.

    • AnkitaH says:

      yes to every word you said.

  4. Jan Harf says:

    Exactly with the “pew pew” observation. What cowards.

    • Kat says:

      Ted Nugent epitomizes cowardice. This guy is acts like he’s the poster boy for ‘Murican patriotism by evangelizing about the righteousness of America’s wars, yet he bragged about sh*tting his pants and eating a nutritionally deficient diet to avoid getting drafted for Vietnam. If any REAL men got him alone in a room, he’d soon drown in a puddle of his own pee and tears because guys like this are weak little boys who enjoy violence when they’re at a safe distance and when it’s at others’ expense (soldier, animal, etc.).

  5. Lilacflowers says:

    The dead mountain lion showered more recently and smelled much better than either one of them. That is all.

  6. Anna says:

    I come from a family of hunters (for them it’s still a cultural thing since they live on a Rez) and they would never pose with an animal that they’ve killed like this. I can’t stand hunters who kill animals just to take some stupid pictures that they can post online and seem “macho”. I have a feeling they’re very unlike my family and don’t use almost every part of the animal, instead they just waste it.

    • Sharon Lea says:

      Anna, I’m from a part of the country where people go hunting and agree that they don’t take pictures (except maybe when fishing?). I’ve heard the phrase ‘city boys’ in my neck of the woods, meaning that guys that live in cities like to come out and hunt and its really about sport and bragging instead of living off the land as you say.

  7. Lindy79 says:

    Absolute dickheads

  8. Detritus says:

    I’m sorry I can’t deal with anyone who views killing in any form ‘fun’.
    I like my meat well enough, and I worked on a cattle farm for a bit. Killing is an unpleasant, but necessary task if you eat meat. It is not ‘fun’.

    • Decorative Item says:

      Well, I look at it differently. I ask myself if I am willing to slit the throat of what I am about to eat, and if I can’t do that then I shouldn’t eat it. I can kill a radish or a lettuce, but I can;t kill anything with a face because there is a difference…a huge difference.

  9. Maria says:

    Hunting for fun annoys me.

    I’m a Texan, through and through, but hunting in our family was about food–more importantly, my grandfather made it a point to emphasize the loss of life that provided us with full bellies so we’d never take our food for granted much less overindulge.

    He taught us a lesson through hunting and never killed anything that wouldn’t be consumed.

    Ted and Kid can take a long walk off a short pier.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I don’t have a problem with people hunting for food ,but hunting for “trophies” is just disgusting.

  10. scout says:

    Where is Dick Cheney when you need him to shoot these morons in the face “accidentally”? Hope “somebody” is not in line to get the Mountain Lion skin Jacket made out that poor darling dead animal.

    • Sharon Lea says:

      I still can’t get over Dick Cheney shot that guy in the face. Years later the man gave an interview, he said that Dick never apologized to him. That’s pretty rude. LOL

  11. Sabrine says:

    I’m not surprised. He belongs in the same category with that revolting Donald Trump Jr. and his severed elephant tail. These beautiful animals are entitled to share the planet without being murdered by fun hunters but unfortunately, testosterone wins the day. The poor things don’t have a chance.

    • jc126 says:

      But but…a rancher somewhere says he might lose one of his livestock sometimes, so therefore it’s open season on the large predators that help keep our ecosystem in balance, apparently.

    • portlandjan says:

      That’s it in a nutshell: they’re using these poor creatures as penis extenders.

  12. Kiddo says:

    All I read in this article was “pew-pew”, and LMAO.

    Overall review, 5 fake babies out of five fake babies, and a pair of beige booty shorts. 👶👶👶👶👶

    Sorry, no shorts emoji, someone needs to get on that STAT.

  13. Green Eyes says:

    Let’s hope the God’s of the Universe believe even Mountain Lions are worthy of Karma, I for one hope they do..Lookout Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum.

  14. Moec23 says:

    Oh come on guys! You know they shot that mountain lion for ‘Merica’ ! ;)

  15. Lis says:

    I miss the days when hunters wore camo and sometimes shot each other by accident. :)

  16. Ellie66 says:

    I saw a pic of Nugent and Palin on FB most of the comments were saying the next Pres and VP 😁 and not even kidding! UGH!

  17. Duchess of Corolla says:


  18. Jayna says:

    Ted Nugent is bordering on the edge of insanity. If I didn’t think he was crazy enough, I once watched a video of him at his ranch doing an interview, and I realized the man was full-on insane or at the edge of insanity.

  19. Crumpet says:

    Good grief. As a conservative, I would like to apologize for Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock.

  21. Dragonlady Sakura says:

    I’m an terrible person, but I wish the mountain lion had ate them!

    • Tiffany says:

      Dragonlady. If no one else will say it. I will. I do NOT think you are a terrible person for thinking that. I laughed and for that I thank you.

      • StumpyCorgi says:

        I agree! Except the mountain lion doesn’t deserve to eat garbage like this. I would be fine if the mountain lion just hunted them for fun (can’t see any respectable mountain lion wanting these idiots as trophies).

    • Kitten says:

      I laughed as well.

  22. Diana B says:

    That photo is so repulsive, I can’t even.

  23. JenniferJustice says:

    Hmmmm….I have mixed feelings about this. I used to work for a Conservation District (part of Dept. of Ag.) and we were for hunting to keep numbers at a managable level, however, to say that killing a Mountain Lion is an act of conservation is questionable. Yes, wild cats kill livestock and wild bovine (deer), however, taking out one of the deer’s primary predators (wild cats and wolves), means more deer will die by starvation or as road kill. That’s the argument for hunting deer, not mountain lions. He is twisting it.

  24. Fernanda says:

    One word for this: assholes.

  25. Doc says:

    What a dick.

  26. RobN says:

    They are not an endangered species. A certain number of tags are given each year to keep them from overwhelming local prey populations.

    The anti-hunting folks conveniently forget the part of the story where deer or elk populations are wiped out due to an overabundance of large predators. Parts of Canada are currently allowing hunting of wolves from helicopters because they’ve run certain protected elk herds down to less than 20 members.

    These guys are both yahoos, but for reasons other than legal hunting.

    • SuzAlex says:

      Robn – Just not true. According to several sources: “An overwhelming number of studies have clearly demonstrated that sport hunting of mountain lions not only does not increase the public’s safety, it also does not reduce depredation on livestock or other domestic animals, and in fact appears to be responsible for the increase in human/lion conflicts in regions where lion mortality is excessive.” the mountain lion population in the United States is nearly endangered and unlikely to exceed 30,000.

    There was a time when I loved This Tool. Even spent $95 to see him live. But, um……he’s slid over into some kinda bat doo-doo craziness. And please take a shower.

  28. LaurieH says:

    I hate hunting. I hate it, hate it, hate it!!!! I do not see what the “sport” is in killing an innocent animal. Sure, I could understand it if you lived in a time or in some third world country where that is your ONLY source of food and clothing, but I am pretty sure that both Kid Rock and Ted Nugent can buy their clothes at Barney’s and wear them while eating at Ruth’s Chris. Did I mention how much I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE hunting? And it’s not that I hate guns – I have one and I enjoy target shooting at the range. But I am in a safe environment designed for such things with all the safety precautions and equipment in place – and I am shooting at PAPER. And in case, I didn’t mention it before – I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE hunting!!!!!

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Well, do you hate hunting or not? Your post seemed a little vague. ;-) I don’t mind hunting if it’s for food and you’re going to use the animal, but just for hanging a trophy on the wall I agree with you and HATE that.

  29. Jo says:

    Disgusting. If you want to fight a lion, do it one on one with no weapons.

  30. laura in LA says:

    I wonder how Pam Anderson feels about her ex now? (I also wonder how she stands any of the men she’s been with, but that’s another topic…)

    Disgusting men.

  32. Lauraq says:

    I’m all for hunting for food, if you’re going to eat the animal and use it’s pelt. Hunt away. But trophy hunting is just vile.
    I live in Omaha, and about 10 years ago we had a problem where THREE (!!!) mountain lions came into the city and were running around for about a week. As I recall no humans got hurt, just a few pets. But it was scary for people, obviously (I love mountain lions but would not want to meet one in my backyard!). Fortunately, two were captured and released out in the wild far away from the city limits. One ended up inside a car dealership and unfortunately was shot dead. I understand why they had to do it, but it was still very sad. Especially when you consider that if it weren’t for urban sprawl, we wouldn’t have as much trouble with wildlife entering the city.
