Idaho Fish and Game official under fire for photos of animals killed on African hunting trip

An Idaho Fish and Game official has come under fire after emailing friends and co-workers photos of a family of baboons and other animals he shot and killed on a hunting trip in Africa.

A group of former commissioners is now calling for Commissioner Blake Fischer to resign, CBS Boise affiliate KBOI reports.

Fischer emailed photos of himself posing with a dead baboon family – including a baby – as well as a giraffe, a leopard, and other animals he killed on a recent trip to Namibia.

Fischer went on a two-week trip to the African country with his wife.

“First day she wanted to watch me, and ‘get a feel’ of Africa,” Fischer said in the email. “So I shot a whole family of baboons.”
