New hunting sensation: beloved stag shot by fridge salesman!
Just days after an American dentist became the most hated man in the world for shooting Cecil the lion, a Kuwaiti hunter has challenged Walter Palmer for supremacy in the stupidity stakes.
UK-based fridge salesman Fawaz Al-Hasawi has attracted the wrath of the internet’s self-righteous masses after he posted an Instagram photo of himself with the corpse of a stag named Stuart.
Stuart was a popular figure in England, particularly in the province of Nottingham, though he was little known internationally until Mr Al-Hasawi shot him in the back.
Nonetheless, ‘Stuart the Stag’ has already become an internet sensation, with the hashtags #prayforstuart, #whyohwhyohwhy and #ivegotthehornforthestag trending on Twitter.
Mr Al-Hasawi, who also works as a “Dev from Coronation Street” impersonator, has so far been unavailable for comment.
Since 2012, Fawaz Al-Hasawi’s wealth from the refrigeration business has funded many hunting expeditions in the UK.
As well as Stuart the Stag, Mr Al-Hasawi is also believed to be responsible for the demise of a former ram named Billy.
Local hunting guide Dan Gerous told LTLF: “This Fawaz guy, he is real crazy. He just shoots things left, right and centre without thinking. He killed a donkey named Steve and then an old goat called Sean on his first hunt before we had even left the ranch.”
Meanwhile, a friend of Mr Al-Hasawi said: “We’re all quite shocked. All we can do is pray for the dumb beast. And after we’ve prayed for Fawaz, we’ll spare a thought for the stag he shot too.”
