THIS Sickening Reason Is Why You Should NEVER Buy Food From Jimmy John’s Again!

  • 10 dollar mediocre sandwiches were bad enough

  • I wouldn’t spend 5 cents with this company.

  • Haven’t ever eaten there and never really considered it. The commercials annoy me enough

  • boycott this man, he seems to have enough money

  • That is terrible.

  • Sad sad

  • I’ll never eat there again

  • They just opened one here. I will never eat there.

    • Kate

      Make sure you let him know why, please.

      • tmf_x

        sure punish the kids that just work at a place trying to make sandwiches and have an income, all because a really rich guy years ago went and did legal trophy hunting.

        • sandi n.

          Who gives two shits that it’s legal. Did he eat those elephants, giraffes, and rhinos? The answer is no. If he was starving and needed food to survive I’d look the other way. There are what thousands of food chains those youngsters can work at. Glad you support such a cruel person. It’s legal to have sex with a horse in many states in the USA but it’s wrong, I bet you support that behavior as well right?

          • tmf_x

            Its illegal to eat a horse too. Why is that? Ive done it, its great meat, Id love to grill some up again. Explain to me why I cannot?

            Ill pass on the horse sex.

            SOMEONE ate the meat. He might not have. After all hows he going to transport all that elephant meat back? But someone there locally is benefiting from the harvest.

            If I had the cash to, damn right I’d go out and pay the fee to shoot a lion. Then I would mount its hide on my wall.

          • Abby

            He can pay 350k to kill it but it’s too difficult to haul it off?? 🤔

          • tmf_x

            Not worth the hassle. having to slaughter, then refrigerate on the entire way home. Its not worth the cost of the meat itself.

            What happens to an elephant after its killed? Doesnt look like it goes to waste. Why do you want to see people not get free food? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7d883273587815f7cd5c4b600702a1680825421442b3d49b33bec9051098b9d4.jpg

          • Windrider_HD

            No, it’s not illegal to eat horse meat. Many consider it a delicacy.

          • tmf_x

            True, its very common across Europe. And almost made a resurgence here. But in order to run a slaughterhouse, producing meat for human consumption, you need Federal meat inspectors to regularly visit the plant. Due to such a backlash from bleeding heart whiners, Congress pulled funding for meat inspectors to horse plants in … 2013 or 2014 I think. That effectively banned horse slaughter in the US.

            Now, thanks to those tools who freak out about eating horse, we ship about 160k domestic horses to slaughterhouses in Canada and Mexico, and the meat goes overseas.

            I’ve eaten it locally. Someone I knew had a horse and they slaughtered it, and I got a few steaks from the harvest. They were a stunning red, no marbling on them and were a very dense flavorful meat. Its a shame I cant get it regularly without finding some black market source somewhere.

          • Windrider_HD

            I don’t necessarily support eating horses just that it’s legal.

          • Evolved One

            More whiners on the right wing side.

          • patriot_act

            People eat muskrat too.

        • congame

          You really believe someone ate the meat? Were you there? And this comment is asinine. You’re saying that a CEO can do anything he wants because he employs people? Where does it stop? Where does social responsibility come in, not to mention the respecting of life that is too quickly becoming extinct because of jerks like this guy – and, apparently, like you.

        • Lee Limbeck

          Yup.. Even though its not their fault.. Hit this asshole in his pocketbook. I agree it’s not his employee’s fault but life ain’t fair is it? Iit is what it is.. Boycott.

        • DME

          if you’ve been taught that legal = right, you must be a millennial.

        • hadawiga

          We need to direct the outrage where it might help some. Our government allows people to trophy hunt endangered species. Obama pretended to help by outlawing the sale of ANTIQUES containing legal (taken before 1978)Ivory, and other banned substances. No ban against NEW Ivory was made, since there is a law already which apparently doesn’t get enforced!

        • Evolved One

          the people working there are not treated with dignity

    • Snr Capon

      Print the pictures and put them on the front door!

    • Dr. Gonzalez

      So, you will punish the local managerial staff and the local kids working there with your boycott? Unless your a Vegan, it might prove insightful to review the slaughterhouse process that leads to your hamburger or fried chicken.

    • Bil Comly

      Good! More for me. I eat there every day.

  • Too bad we as a country don’t care about our unborn babies being slaughtered everyday through abortions as much as you care about these animals. Get your priorities straight!

    • It is possible to care about both, as many of us do.

    • This post isn’t about abortion. Duh

    • No shit, it’s all about nature

    • M Nov

      Get your priorities right and save your rants for a forum that’s about the right to choose.

  • Piece of crap

  • I’ll gladly take his right thumb, left ear and entire jaw as trophy.

    • Windrider_HD

      You and everyone voting this up are psychopaths.

      • Suzanne Morrison Dixon

        He’s talking about taking the trophy hunters body parts.

        • Windrider_HD

          Yes I understand that, they and you are psychopaths.

  • it will happen when his time is up, his soul leave the bodyshell and he will have to meet up the gods and goddess

  • ….. yeah, okay…..

  • Since January of 2016 900000 plus and counting babies have been aborted. Where is the outcry to that? Get your priorities in order.

    • What about all the homeless kids?? How many have you adopted??? And this post isn’t about abortion. Duh

    • MisterLiteral

      What about the 10s of millions of potential children that died on your mom’s face last week? Where is the outcry for that? Get your priorities in order.

    • MidgardMortal

      How many kids have you adopted? How many single mothers have you helped? How many low-income people have you helped pay for contraceptives?
      Where are your priorities?

      • Ron04

        so that justifies killing the ones that weren’t CONTA conceived?

        Just step back from this whole discussion if you can, and remove the emotion.

        People are numb, immune, insulated from the daily killing of thousands of humans, but just go out of their minds insane over the lawful taking of an animal by a hunter.

        We are truly doomed as a species……

    • Scott

      Those are separate issues – get a clue. That doesn’t make what he did any better.

  • We vote with our dollars.

  • I am through with Jimmie Johns. Didn’t really care for it .

  • Idiot

  • I agree never again will eat there ..

  • This is sickening, these sort of people need to be stopped, it’s just ego, to try to prove they’re big and strong, it makes me sick to my stomach…… It was on the news last night saying that within a decade most animals such as the lions, tigers, elephants, rhinos etc will be extinct. It’s all because of these cowards who kill for pleasure. Something needs to be done to stop these people

    • teacher

      I believe it’s called compensation for tiny hands or whatever else happens to undoubtedly be really, really tiny.

  • This subhuman is an arsewipe of the highest order.

  • Beyond words

  • Old and outdated news folks. Not only were his hunts perfectly legal (whether you approve of hunting or not, he didn’t break any laws), but it’s something he no longer does anyway.

          NO its actually not “bogus.” But by all means, cite your sources for BOGUSNESS. After all that video cited their sources.

      • dgr

        A better solution would be to kill off the trophy hunters since this world has an over-population problem. Then use all their riches to help with these poor people and animal conservation. This is all about choosing who lives and who dies for the good of everyone right?

    • Lorraine Stanton

      Still shows what kind of person he is. Sickening to see him there with his thumbs-up and acting so gleeful over a dead elephant, a noble, kind and beautiful creature he took the life of, we will never get the ones he already killed back.

      • Ron04

        are you a vegetarian?

        • Lorraine Stanton

          Are you a little dense? Why would that imply that I am a vegetarian? Lots of people who eat meat are against ENDANGERED animals being killed.

          • Ron04

            Apparently you’re the one who’s dense. If they were ENDANGERED they couldn’t be hunted legally

    • Dubayew

      He broke the laws of common decency. Anyone that gets a thrill from simply killing, no hunting involved, no risk to himself is mentally unbalanced.

      • Alex LeClair

        That’s great, now go take it up with the people who sell these animals lives to be legally poached, not one man who doesn’t even do it anymore.

        If you think boycotting jimmy johns is somehow doing anything then you’re a fool.

        • Paul B

          Maybe he doesn’t beat his wife anymore either. His past activities are enough for me to judge his character. The people who sell these animals are desperate for money. A millionaire has so many choices on what to do with their spare time.

        • Cee Hep

          When you read about crime and they give you all the prior crime one commits, you judge then. This is no different.

        thanks for deciding my morality for me as I was totally incapable of doing so without your learned input…..

    • MidgardMortal

      Perfectly “legal” certainly does not equate with moral or decent….
      Strikes me as being one sick ba$tard.
      No JJ for me.

    • Scott

      Who cares if it was a few years back. It’s obvious the only reason he stopped was because of the publicity. I for one will never eat there again. And it’s disgusting that you fall back to ‘he didn’t break any laws’

  • Why isn’t he imprisoned, when he is clearly breaking the law??

    • Leslie Namet

      Lol, because he is not

    • sonotaliberal

      When you have researched the laws yourself (absolutely possible with the internet these days) do come back and let us all know why he is still a free man.

      • Ron04

        because he did absolutely nothing wrong or illegal….that’s why.

    • Curben Justic

      Big game hunts were when he was doing these legal and still are. He has however stop the practice back in 2003

      • animalkingdom8

        He he really stopped hunting big game and endangered animals? If so, that’s great. But how do you know?

        • Curben Justic

          All his hunts were legal and this there was paperwork for them. The last hunt that can be found was from 2003.

          Plus his own systems can be found about why he gave up the practice.

          Yes it’s possible he could still be somehow, but there is no recent documentation anywhere that anyone has been able to produce showing any such activity.

  • Went there once. Not impressed. Dinky portion, too much money. Never went back. That was 10 years ago.

  • Please pass this on & share. Sorry for his employees but he needs to end this.

  • JimmieBallgame

    I would personally love to shove that rhino’s horn up his ass. ALL THE WAY.

        SMH — you’re pathetic for making that comparison. And you’re a woman, too???
        Geeeez, wake the “F” up… it’s the 21st Century!!!
        I actually feel sorry for all of you religious people… ‘cuz when your time comes, you will find out that there is no “GOD” or “Heaven”… just nothingness.

        • Soloved

          Actually it is a great comparison. As both are quite defenseless! And what does being in the 21 st century have to do with anything? If it has anything to do with abortion, it should be that we have such wonderful machines and science now to prove that there is a living human being in the womb and it should be protected, just like our animal friends.
          For instance; Federal law provides that people can actually go to prison and a maximum fine of $5,000, for taking, shooting, shooting at, poisoning, wounding, killing, capturing, trapping, collecting, molesting or disturbing a bald or golden eagle “egg”.
          I’d really like to know why an eagle egg is treated the same as an adult eagle (isn’t it only a “potential eagle”) when an unborn child is treated like a non-human.
          Well, tell me, why?

          • William Strong

            Good analogy.

          • Alaina Hickey

            Eagles are endangered.
            Humans are not.

          • Ron04

            did you seriously just write that? REALLY??

          • Alaina Hickey

            Well I think I did… unless my mind was probed by aliens or I’m being brainwashed by the government. Yeah I stand by my statement.

            It’s really not logic. It’s a fact. Eagles are in danger of going extinct, in case you need a definition of endangered.
            Humans are far from it, in fact humans are more like an invasive weed species pushing everything to extinction.

          • Audra Teeter Ross

            That is the truth. Like it or not.

          • Robert Ford

            Alaina…Your logic is idiotic!!. Liberalism=mental disorder

          • Alaina Hickey

            It’s not “liberalism” but your emotional arguments are amusing you guys. I needed a good laugh.

          • LMC5

            Robert Ford thank you so much for explaining your situation. I would ask that you come over to the conservative side..the RIGHT side. There was nothing wrong with her comment. now for yours…it was undisciplined.

          • DME

            no, being conditioned to filter the world through an imaginary hyper-partisan lens is a mental disorder. And it’s destroying the country.

          • Soloved

            They were endangered, but not any more, but that does not grant them more any more value.
            But the catch word is, “potential.” They saved the eagles by believing there was a potential eagle during the gestation period of the egg, which contains the same development as does a womb of a human.
            And this from the same Federal institution that allows human development to be unprotected! Not cool, these “potentials” should be afforded the same protection we all have under our Constitution. Other wise, you and I may one day not fit their “potential” description of being potentially viable (euthanasia)!

          • Ron04

            Funny how you were quick to realize that. Yet if there was a national organization that received a ton of tax dollars to go around and crush eagle eggs, she and her ilk would be screaming from the rooftops

          • Alaina Hickey

            Again. There are significantly more humans than eagles. Eagles were only endangered in the first place because of humans. Your argument is a fallacy in itself since it’s all based on emotion and not actual facts.

          • Ron04

            I just can’t get over the fact that a young woman of reproductive age is making an argument that places the life of an incubating egg over that of a human being.

            Is this what our “modern” society has become?

            How’s that for a FACT?

          • Alaina Hickey

            Contrary to popular belief, my body isn’t popping out children anytime soon if ever. I know it’s hard for you to understand, obviously, but women do not have to have children if they don’t want to.

          • Alaina Hickey

            You guys kill potential lives every time you cum into a sock watching porn by yourselves, but no one will take that away from you. If only.

            Um… I can’t tell if you’re agreeing with me. The all caps is super distracting and I have trouble separating the letters lol.

            But yes. Humans are invasive and aggressive.

          • John Ward

            Great point

          • Dolphin Lover

            They both are helpless but abortion is not the subject here. So one really does not have anything to do with the other at this point. Wow…..some of you folks are really missing the point of the real subject and you all like to ramble on about other crap! Do you all have A.D.D.? You can’t seem to stay on the subject!!!! I never ate at a Jimmy Johns but I had my own reason….I knew nothing about him and his big game hunting!

          • Thomas Collins

            Exactly lol. Trying to pretend abortion is even remotely the same is dumbest the thing ever lol. A small child’s like logic.

          • Thomas Collins

            It is a comparison a retard would make. Humans are OVERpopulated not underpopulated and definitely not endangered lol. The world does not need more people. If you are not adopting unwanted children then you are an asshole hypocrite to even bring it up.

          • LMC5

            Gee Thomas by your comment, you have never worked with “retards” 1. if you have, you would have never used them in this reference. 2 you would find that your heart is bigger than you think it is because you would love those people with all of it. 3. they are incapable of thinking in this capacity. You sir are what you just called her. for shame

          • Thomas Collins

            Which just means you completely missed the point lol

          • Ron04

            but not as big of an asshole to compare a human fetus to a raptor…..

          • LMC5

            you cant talk sense to a concrete post. stop trying. only God can save him now.

          • Shai Yammanee

            It is a terrible comparison.
            Trophy hunting is about profiting from the death of animals for the sake of a momento.
            When people start hanging pieces of humans off their walls, and paying a small fortune for the opportunity, then you can make the comparison.

          • Soloved

            You kidding me, and “abortion mills” are not profitable? They are very profitable, as for the unborn organ trade — These body parts are not “hanging off walls” but is undeniably lucrative from those that are,”paying small fortunes for the opportunity,” now you can make the comparison, in this light!

        • tmf_x

          Personally, I think we need more abortions.

          • Yexan

            Perhaps those rallying for more abortions should demonstrate their sincerity by have a Post Birth Abortion performed on themselves……

          Just for the fun of it, suppose you are wrong and you die and find out…oops…I made a mistake! There is no turning back. If I believe and it gives me comfort & hope, what have I lost? No, nothing plus I had the security of my belief…free! Think about it.

          • Alaina Hickey

            Then that’s our problem isn’t it? Plus if your god is real then isn’t it his business if he’s to forgive us? Look you take comfort in whatever way you want and live by whatever rule book you want but do not push that system onto the rest of us.

            It’s not free btw. Seriously do people read the Bible? I somehow doubt anyone follows every single rule and guideline just the ones they deem fit for their life.

          • LMC5

            Alaina Hickey, yes we people read the Bible. I see no one here pushing anything on to you. We are stating our facts. take or leave it. We know the truth and we know whats going to happen. We like and love people and we read out to guide those people so they dont perish when they die. There were many ways we could prove that Jesus walked the face of this earth. But they are taking it or destroying it. One way is by the time line. It will be gone by the next two generations. The kids wont be taught that but the new terms. BC/AD. Before Christ. Now if this man was not so important, why would they set time on his birth and death? Ok besides that…if there were no God we would have no morals. why not get a machine gun and kill smart mouth back talking people and be done with it? right killing is not a good idea. if you kill someone you go to jail. abortion is killing. go to youtube and put in abortions and you will change your mind. especially watch that one where he induced mom and she had the baby whole and he tossed it in a cold metal bowl. during her clean up, he poked the baby over and over to see if it were still alive. It lived for quite a while without life support. I cried. I wanted to hold that baby as it died. I wanted to keep it warm as it died. I hated to hit that dr for being so crass. God loves you. He sent Jesus to die on the cross so you can ask Him to forgive you of all your sins so you can go to heaven. God gives us a path to get back to Him. I have no doubt that He is real.

        • Tim Lambert

          You sound like you ‘feel really sorry’.. for your sake dat_MF, I hope you’re right. But I wouldn’t count on it.

        • LibertyDwells

          Wait, did you just imply opposing infanticide has something to do with religion? It’s the 21st century, not the 1960’s. Genetics tells us it’s human from conception. Medical science affirms it is alive by any medical standard at 5 weeks. Psychology confirms the mental damage done to most (rational) women by abortion. In short, science offers no support for your desire to have irresponsibility “fixed” after the fact. Time to enter the modern age.

        • LMC5

          if there is no God then why are there morals? if there is no God and no morals, that means we can run around with guns and shoot those people who tick us off and spout nasties at us right dat_MF????? 😀

        • sandi n.

          You disgust me as a woman and guess what I am a woman. Maybe you shouldn’t have sex if you don’t want to take the chance of having a child you didn’t want. You had sex what did you expect a flat screen tv? It is the 21st century and guess what that book you’re referring speaks of things that are happening now that was written about 2000 years ago. Even science has proved that God and Jesus do exist therefore, your theory is flawed. You want to kill a baby by all means go ahead, you will have to be the one who answers for it on judgment day not me. Why is it so wrong that I believe in God and you believe there is not? Guess we will all find out when we meet the creator. I would rather believe in God and die and find out there was none, versus never believing he exist and die and finding out he was there all along. Hell doesn’t sound like anything I want any part of.

          • Suzanne Morrison Dixon

            And why do Christians always say that they would rather believe and God not be real, then not believe and God be real. Who would want to live their life that way? Basically scared into believing something? Talk about scare tactics working. Which is why religion was created in the first place….to keep civilization in check. To have society live by rules and guidelines, like an invisible police force. Lol. Funny how you “christians” want to always bring up abortion like the bible spoke against it or something, when “God” killed babies and innocent children all the time. And what happened to everything being “God’s plan”. Don’t you think he plans for women to get abortions? Lol. Another typical christian hypocrite. That doesn’t know anything about the bible, and cherry picks it to fit their current narrative. Lol.

    This is so pathetic. I just don’t understand how some one can kill an helpless animal. Hope he rots in hell

    • tmf_x

      easy. you pay the money to do so, go out, take aim, and pull the trigger. Its quite easy.

      Now having to walk up to, say, an injured deer and slit its throat, thats a bit more messy.

      • flyboydale54

        Before you try that on a Buck, I suggest gripping his horns with both hands as tightly as you can and have someone else slit the injured deer’s throat. You better hope that deer is injured seriously enough that it can not thrash you violently and attack you. Friends have told of stories where they rescued their son after he shot the deer and thought he was going to gut the deer. Luckily his father was strong enough to jump on also and slit that deer’s throat. They were a needy poorer class of people with good values who needed some meat to feed their family, but that day could of easily ended their son’s life. If it was not for the yearly season on various wild animals, the population of those species would get so large, travel by car would be a very dangerous situation, not to speak about the increase of diseases these animals would get and spread throughout the herds. They kill cattle, chickens, sheep, pigs, for feeding the populations of people, so for those that take part in the yearly hunting seasons, are actually doing society a favor. Now the hunting licenses are so expensive that there are thousands less of hunters, and no longer feasible expense wise. For those that can afford to hunt, I want to say thank you for controlling the populations and helping to keep diseases of these wild animals from becoming epidemics. In my readings I have seen where Wild Pigs have become a real genuine problem with their ridiculous increase in numbers. They are destroying lands, injuring people walking around on lands and in the woods. I believe it would be better to have year round hunting seasons on these Wild Pigs so people could supply their families with Pork meat. The populations have gotten out of control on a lot of wild animal species. They need to be controlled, but not by increasing and increasing the cost of hunting licenses, which is counter productive.

        • Nature maintains its own balance even better without human help, that is before humanities numbers has invaded their range and habitat. Don’t kid yourself talking about deer when endangered species like the Grey Wolf, that help to maintain balance by preying on deer, are set-up, by a monetized system, to be killed, so that humans can have the pleasure, of killing both predator and prey, making them ‘top dog’ with their weapons. Lunatics are running the asylum.

          • tmf_x

            Nature may maintain its own balance. But we live here, and we directly affect the natural balance. So we artificially balance the populations though hunting. Don’t kid your self, it is very necessary. There are no grey wolves around here. We have Coyotes and bobcats, but not a ton of them. Man is the only real predator of deer in my state.

            Not to mention the fact if you start introducing wolves and higher number of predators, you will see them sliding into suburban areas. Domestic dogs and cat deaths will rise. Even children in some cases.

            So hunting seasons, especially for deer, are VERY necessary for the populations of game.

            well if you cant really formulate an argument, I guess you can just use silly threats and try to appear tough. By all means, you keep doing that. And keep thinking you should “cull” the people who actually own and know how to use firearms. That would be entertaining.

        • Roger Reid

          The only reason he stopped was hurting his business? Is that not the reason for boycott? Should you not be proud and forgiving that the boycott worked? If not why boycott in the first place?

          • Ron04

            If all humans thought like you do the species would have died out before we walked upright……

          • handsomish

            This isn’t about being a vegetarian or anti-hunting for food, but about trophy hunting endangered species, and in the manner in which they do so. When you go out hunting your deer for meat, you don’t have someone go out there and eventually present a buck for you to shoot like you are at some store. You actually have to hunt and track that animal, then get a clean shot, and if not, continue to track it down then finish it, clean and dress it, and haul it out. These guys aren’t some talented, brave and courageous warriors protecting people from threats or feeding a hungry family, they are essentially a kid with a big bag of quarters having someone else do all the work, so they can have a “trophy” of their “conquest”. Wow, it takes a real man to do something that they could exhibit with a paper target. NOT!

          • Scott

            Forgive? No, I will not – in the sense that this is who he is and what he believes – he only stopped because it hurt his wallet. I will choose to spend my money elsewhere. his actions were heinous in my opinion. simply because the boycott worked isn’t reason enough for me to go back. others may feel different, that is fine. We shouldn’t have had to boycott in the first place. I am looking beyond his actions to send a message to anyone who would do what he did, that there are serious consequences to their actions.

          • patweir

            Of course he changed because it hurt his wallet. That was the point. You cannot force someone to think like you think, you cannot legislate thought, you can only ask that they behave in the manner of their fellow citizens.

          • Scott

            Agreed.

          • Nicholas Kringle

            Seriously. if you continue to boycott after the change, you remove all future motivation for people to change in response to boycotts.

        • Dr. Gonzalez

          I will eat there twice as often, not that I approve of this style hunting, but the local staff have nothing to do with those events and if it offends liberal-snowflakes…all the more reason.

          • Scott

            Yes, sadly the employees have nothing to do with it – but it is the owner that ultimately benefits the most (by far). I for one won’t reward horrific behavior. It’s sad to see people put their preconceived political views over humanity. I will say that it’s not surprising however – especially from right-wingers.

          His sons host hunting fundraisers. This is fact. They have no problem admitting killing wildlife. It isn’t at all shameful to them.

          • tmf_x

            so if I stab a mouse through the neck as I hold it under my shoe, is that bad? If I kill 3 deer in a season, is that bad? If I mow over a small nest of bunnies in my yard because they will grow up and eat the garden, is that bad?

            I just dont get what wildlife is okay to kill and what isnt.

          • animalkingdom8

            Yes, all of those things are bad. It’s not ok to kill any of the wildlife. If you sincerely don’t get that, you’re a miserable person and lacking in compassion or conscience. I suspect you’re really a troll and just have a lot of time to waste irritating people though.

          • Ron04

          • dang

            Yes, it is only OK to kill humans. Humans are the only animal that kills for fun and profit,

          • tmf_x

            but they arent bad. I dont get why you would even remotely say that. I mean, I doubt had I substituted “snake” or “cockroach” for “mouse” you would have cared.

            hunting is a colossal adrenaline rush. and those thee dead deer, including the one whose throat I slit, they all tasted very good. Made some great jerky, let me tell you.

          • animalkingdom8

            You’d be wrong. Killing mice and insects is also awful. Again, proving you’re a troll…keyboard shock tactics aren’t shocking at all.

          • Della McGaw

            do you eat what you kill? to most people that is the test to deciding what is okay and what isn’t. Most people have no problem with hunting if you are going to use the animal for food, just as most people do have a problem with trophy hunting.

          • tmf_x

            Trophy hunting provides the food to locals. It gets eaten. So its not that bad then right?

          • tmf_x

            Well I dont eat the mouse or the chopped by the lawnmower clutch of baby rabbits. But actual game animals? yeah, totally. But I also shoot them because there might be a glut of males one year. so I steer clear of the does. Or maybe we have a couple of old bucks that are domianting the females and its better for the entire regional population to take them out so we get some more genetic diversity.

            There is planning and conservation to hunting. To insinuate because someone goes on a trophy hunt and kills an elephant that he is a bloodthirsty savage is just insane.

            “”These bulls no longer contribute to the growth of the population and are in a lot of ways detrimental to the growth of the population because black rhinos are very aggressive and territorial. In many cases, they will kill younger, non-breeding bulls and have been known to kill calves and cows,” Carter said this week”

            350K later, a license to hunt that aggressive old endangered Rhino was sold, and the money went to benefit the population. Tell me how any of that is bad?

          • tmf_x

            Because its hunting. Why should it be shameful?

      • gunny55

        Yeah, and I can make one of you trophy hunting too. Numnuts.

        • dang

          Yes, it is only OK to kill humans. Humans are the only animal that kills for fun and profit, Plus they make good trophies.

      • debbiehm

    • Rachael

      Thank you, MisterLiteral, for explaining that to him. Elephants are extremely endangered. Also, many times elephants kill people because people are invading their space. We are stealing their land. Their numbers are plummeting. Do some research.

        I have heard a lot about the hunter and the animals he was hunting. I have heard how bad the hunter is and how endangered the animals are. But I have heard no one say one thiing about the government who is selling the permits to him to LEGALLY hunt. If its that important to you then stop the permits from being issued. He can’t hunt those animals LEGALLY without those permits. SMDH!!!

    This is so old! His head quartes is in my town and he is a good man that gives back to the community. If you don’t agree with the hunting ok I get it but look into it before judging and coming up with bs arguments and believeing what someone else has posted and writing about someone who is better off or has diffrent beliefs. He is not the reason these photos have gotten out but someone that had a gruge and made a quick judgment call about him. This is sad and heart breaking I do not condone but I don’t know all the details so I will not make up an excuse but I do know that what this post says is not accurate and the pics are at least 10 years old if my memory serves me right. STOP WORRYING ABOUT OTHERS IM SURE YOUR NOT ANY BETTER, YOUR JUST A HORRIBLE PERSON IN A DIFFRENT WAY!

    So, he likes to ‘hunt’. There are proclivities much more abhorrent to me;Trump supporter, Clinton supporter. The only determinant as to whether I patronize a restaurant or not? The food tastes freaky good. (Jimmy John’s doesn’t pass.) Unfortunately, there are too many freaky lazy people who think a sub-mediocre-at-best sandwich delivered is a freaky super idea, which lets this guy do whatever he wants with his cash.

    • Warren Meneghello

    His sandwiches ***!

  • Curben Justic

    He gave up and recanted this practice about 15 years ago . Of his own accord mind you.

    Also the other things that I saw the article listed about Jimmy John’s hiring practices are also not true.

    That’s what the article claims yes he used to do this but I think the last time he did was 2003 and he eventually came to see it as a bad practice and dessisted on his own.

    Long before any boycotts for mentioned. And technically the purpose of a boycott is and should be to get someone to change a policy or behavior which he didn’t help the boycott so really this isn’t even a reason to boycott. Now if you don’t like the food that’s one thing. Or maybe there’s something else that he does that is currently true but this isn’t one of them.

    • Warren Meneghello

      This was back in 2010 !! Now that he has buckled to pressure, that makes him a good guy now ?? People are so easy to forget others indiscretions !! Well I am not one of them !! It s says a lot about a person that was even willing to do something like this !!!

      • Curben Justic

        Available records show his last hunt in 2003. He looked at the practice himself and decided to quit nothing came to light about it like it has recently until many years after he quit the practice.

  • Jsplash

    statistically it is estimated that annually over ten thousand people are killed by animals in Africa. (most by big game) To all of you bleeding hearts out there remember these are wild animals that have no feelings toward human. To them we are food. Wild animals in many cases kill humans with less discretion then “big game hunters”, mauling or trampling innocent men, women and children simply to show dominance. So to all of you whiny little self righteous hypocrites “Human lives matter” more than animals.

    • Paul B

      What a bizarre, backwards way of looking at the world.

  • Nic Cherches

    Did you idiots know that big game hunting in many parts of the world provides the needed money to save a species… Hear me out… Wealthy American’s often go to very pour nations to hunt big game and pay a lot of money to not only companies but to the country for a permit. This VERY EXPENSIVE permit often provides funds for game wardens, conservation efforts, etc to help control their un-regulated killings by poachers. Do some research and you will see that what Jimmy is doing is actually doing a lot of good in the animal conservation movement.

    the part about requiring staff to work when sick is not exclusive to JJ’s, many places discourage staff from calling in and if they are down a person or two they dont ask other staff to cover either way the customer suffered. when i was 19 i worked kitchen prep at a small chain, almost always down to one person when we had enough work for two. got bronchitis, this wasn’t enough to take time off, no clue how many customers got sicks because i was handling their food. think about this next time you eat out

    I love to hear how these dumb a$$ people say “I used to love them sandwiches until I heard he is a hunter” What the hell do you think those sandwiches are made of? Animals that’s what! Wild meat or raised on a farm is no different. Do a little research on that, that you condemn. Every where where hunting is allowed and regulated the animal population is thriving. Where it is outlawed is where poaching runs out of control. The person that wrote this is just plane full of elephant dung.

  • Borissgal

    First of all this CEO is spending money made from his business, not directly taking the money from “your” sandwich. That’s ridiculous. Second, if you don’t like him or his business, don’t eat there. Lastly, there are permits issued by the African Government for each animal. Americans cannot bring any part of an animal back to the states or have it shipped here if it does not have a permit so maybe your anger should be aimed at them first. How much anyone spends on one of these hunts is irrelevant, what is relevant is who they are getting permission from.

  • William Johnston

    Very enlightening.

  • skidtwo

    Perhaps it is time to hunt Jimmy. Yes I think so. What a pathetic excuse for a human. Perfect justice would be a gut shot to destroy his digestive system and deprive him of ever enjoying food again.

  • Sarah Lockwood Plain

    well at least it looks like he ate most of the elephant, lol

  • nickw

    I’ll eat there, twice as much now……The trophy fees he paid as a hunter helped 100s of game animals, The African Countries which have embraced, and encouraged sport hunting, ALL have growing herds….The countries where it has been banned, are ALL in trouble….This article just shows the level of hysterical ignorance, surrounding hunting…..every ounce of meat, every square inch of hide, and even the bones are used from safari meat….This guy spent close to a million bucks, which goes much farther to sustain the animals, and people of Africa, than any of the weeping Sallys posting here….Hunters are conservationists, learn the facts, and don’t let your emotions rule your brain…The REAL threat to wildlife in Africa, is POACHING, Habitat, and drought….NOT sport hunting!

    • Ron04

      no one here cares about the truth Nick. They’re too busy planning their next trip to save the gay baby whales while working on their child labor produced Ipad and driving their strip mining battery powered Prius.

  • Ron04

    One sided anti gun anti hunting biased as always. All emotion zero fact.

    If the species were “endangered” they wouldn’t be being legally hunted in the first place.

    How about you talk about what that safari hunting income means for wildlife management in Africa? It finances nearly 100% of it. Why don’t you talk about what that income means for infrastructure in the villages and provinces where these preserves and parks are located? It pays for clean water and schools and health care. In many cases it is literally the life blood between life and death for residents of these areas.

    But none of that fits your narrative.

    Don’t like guns? Don’t buy one. Don’t like hunting? Don’t hunt. What does that have to do with this guy? I am absolutely certain that his activities were 100% legal in the areas where they took place. Otherwise he’d be an absolute fool to post pictures on public media. I’m also fairly certain that many of these animals were at or nearing the end of their natural lives, but again, you didn’t bother to ask.

    There are two or more sides to every story. Perhaps you should consider all of them.

    Uh huh. Wal Mart largest employer in the country. Who do you hurt by not shopping there? Surely not the Walton family…..

  • cookies4u98

    Maybe you should do some research. Well I have never eaten there. BUT These stories leave A LOT out like for example. The animals he is allowed to kill are elderly or have ailment like a bum leg and they are not in the wild. They are in a specific area. Now he has to pay 100’s of thousands of dollars to get the license to hunt said animal. That goes to the local Tribes. Next he doesn’t get to keep any of the Ivory or the meat that goes to the local tribes as well and can feed them for months! So an animal they would have hunted and killed anyways for food, they now get some rich idiot to do for them they get money to help sustain them for the year and get to eat. There is always a flip side to this. We as a country may not like what he does, but those in other countries who literally still live off the land and Only the land rely on idiots like him to pay for those hunting licenses.

    This moron needs to be taught about virtual reality that doesn’t destroy wildlife. Abn his company, while it employes people, needs to bear the wrath of the public.
    Any person supporting this business, supports this deviant activity – period.
    Boycott Jimmy Johns.

    I once ordered a sandwich to be delivered (Don’t drive) and it took 2 hours! I Kept calling. Was put on hold. Was also told I ordered at shift time and that was why sandwich was delayed. What a bunch of BS! No shift change anywhere takes 2 hrs! I no longer buy anything from JJ’s.

  • John Eargle

    I find this killing of these magnificent animals distasteful and even vulgar, but not nearly as bad as killing an unborn human child. I’m afraid all the self-righteous judges are going to be shocked on judgment day.

  • Heather

    this yahoo has enough money to do whatever he wants. who are we to complain? want to get pissed off at someone for a black rhino being sold? the LAST? for the horn? why not give AFRICA a call. THEY allow it. THEY license it, THEY sell it. TELL AFRICA NOT TO DO IT. how come the africans aren’t complaining?

  • Richard J. Waldron

    I love Jimmy Johns and I have been there and this tree hugging nut job is lying through her teeth. The animals in South Africa are all owned by the land owners and are conserved because they don’t want to deplete the heard or they won’t have an income next season. And tell me how you lure a rhino or elephant off of a national park land buy playing other animal sounds or bait? They eat trees and grass. Stupid! Really? The last female black Rhino I don’t think so. Very hard to belive. I do know you can Hunt them for the right amount of money. But poachers are the ones who are depleting the hearts not LEGALLY HUNTING AMERICANS. So get your story straight and quit lying to people to get your agenda through!

  • Scott M. Wright

    On an actual official hunt, they do pay a high $ amount to hunt, the meat does go to the local village or however they dole out this food. If a person goes on an illegal hunt, then sure the animal does lie their and rot. How are people really to know if this is a legal or illegal company taking them out to hunt? If someone wants to show me police reports showing both sides of the story then I will make up my mind. Just because someone on the internet says something doesn’t make it the truth. Show me the facts and proof of what you say. My family went out deer hunting every year on Thanksgiving. The saying was you kill it you clean it. Everybody had food for a few months with deer jerkey and other types of deer meet. Most people eat meat, eggs (dead chicken fetuses), milk from cows. If you wear leather or sit on leather seats in your cars, where do you think that comes from? If you use electricity where do you think that comes from? This planet is a circular event. Humans are usually on the top tier of the food chain and goes down. Wasting the use of an animal for no purpose is bad. Until I hear both sides of a story, that’s what it is for now.

    I stopped eating there after I ordered an italian hoagie without tomato, took it back to my table, opened it up and saw they put tomatoes on my sandwich. I walked back up to the counter and showed them the tomatoes, and they made me another one. While at the same time, they wrapped up the sandwich, which I had my fingers in, and sold it to another customer.

  • Kendell Riley

    Killing for food is one thing, killing for sport is just messed up. Ain’t but a few of some of these animals left and these jackasses are killing them for trophies.

    • Curtis

      The local tribes get the meat from these animals.

      Besides these animals could have been causing
      damage to local farmers and or may have killed

      some people.
      Once these animals go “rogue” they are put down.

    never eat their. so Im already boycotting him I guess.

  • CB

    What Lara Starr forgot to mention is the money being spent on these game animals is going back into the program for these species. You can’t go and draw an animal out of a park and shoot it the government is involved all the way through. Unfortunately to make it more sensational reading the truth has not been represented and the hunter who by the way is usually more of a conservationist than the so called authors of these stories do put their money where their mouths are.

  • roscojim

    Do we know these pics aren’t photoshopped? You guys fall for too much garbage. I will gladly double my Jimmy John’s visits and keep people working.

  • Rockyballbuster

    What a crock of crap. This is b.s. journalism at it’s best.

  • Neil

    This type of fun as they call it should be outlawed every where. I wonder how Jimmy would feel if it was the other way around. Him in the cage being hunted instead of those poor animals he so likes to hunt.

  • pfvayda

    Disgusting behavior. There was a time and day when game hunting was a legit way of feeding people … but in this day and age that is not so.

    I’ve worked there for years now and I’ve heard the story several times it’s all bullshit happened years ago and yes he did do it but he no longer does it he has it for years now he doesn’t even look like that anymore. And are you kidding me there are employees calling out all the time for stupid reasons. Please don’t stop eating Jimmy John’s just because of this article it’s bullshit don’t believe everything you read online my goodness guys really?

  • Lauren Cavaliere

    and also these companies are owned by random people not just Jimmy John people that are good people that worked really hard and actually work at their business, most owners even work in their own sub shops it’s like a small business for a person and Jimmy John’s gets only some very small percentage of that so the next time you think you want to hurt Jimmy John’s because of that guy just realize that there are other people who actually owns the business

  • Dennis Mullen

    I rarely ate their food and will certainly never go in again. I worked with a group of people who would periodically go in and I now use my powers of persuasion to go elsehwere. So essentially by myself I was one diner maybe five times a year. I exercise my veto power and that becomes five times a year times 4 in the group for twenty meals.

    Is anyone going to hold the government of Africa accountable for allowing these “hunts”? Just blaming the Jimmy John’s of the world is like arresting the prostitutes and not the John’s Jimmy or otherwise! No arrests because no crime. Don’t let the people who offer this hunt just to make money off the hook. Suddenly zoos don’t look so bad especially the ones that breed with care of endangered animals.

    although this guy looks like a tool i think this article’s motivation is other than just jimmy john. I believe the person writing the article is against hunting, period. i do believe in hunting the right way not the ways mentioned above. Also, killing majestic animals and especially endangered animals should be eliminated. I would also want to ask who sold the Rhino to Jimmy for 350K? Are they not also responsible? Also, if the countries know this i going on why dot they stop it? could it be possibly because they are receiving kick backs?

  • Claudia Verde

  • Flame

    Go back to the “stone age”…they hunted for food and clothing (used hides for many purposes) Today we have slaughter houses to provide food for the population. There are other areas of this world that the human still hunts for food. However, hunting for “pleasure”, for “bragging rights”, is the issue here. Hanging trophies on the wall or going to a place where a fee is collected for these “hunts” is deplorable. There are many species that we are trying to protect so that future generations can enjoy seeing these animals. I am a conservative Christian which may offend some…however, I believe that using logic and factual information is necessary for any discussion in a rational manner. Name calling provokes anger and doesn’t solve a thing. Whatever your personal beliefs try to make your point using factual information and go from there.

    Whatever the reasons this man stopped game hunting in Africa demonstrates the power of opposition and consequences to his behavior. However, to keep rubbing salt into the wound is not an answer either. It is good that he recognized his egregious actions and is now trying to amend his ways.

      He never committed a crime. what he did was legal, and benefitted the populations of the animals, conservation efforts in the region, provided some income for the country in question, and provided food for the locals.

  • Hmm OK first the Noncompete clause, Can’t work at another sandwich shop in a 5-mile radius. I haven’t read it but even if the article I just read was absolutely correct, and I have my doubts, No Judge would enforce it. Second of all, I bet a 12 pack of doughnuts that it says you can’t start a sandwich shop in a 5-mile radius, and that is pretty standard.

    Now let us go to the EEEEEEEVIiiiiiLLL hunting portion. First off this article says he drops about $250,000 for a trophy. That is a capitalist spreading his wealth around. He is making other people who come in contact with him richer. The employees of the airlines that the vile evil hunter uses to get paid a portion of the money they receive from Ol’ Jimmy John.

    Many times Big game hunters are allowed to make bids to hunt a problem animal, like Cecil the Lion, he was killing local villagers. They were happy Cecil was killed by that dentist. So if this person who looked a little closer they might actually see there was a reason that Rare female black rhino was shot. Add to it that he added $350,000 to the conservation park’s coffers. Yet the writer of this post views that as a bad thing. I guess Lara Starr wants poacher to increase their spoils from 94 elephants.

    But the amount of Money this evil vile dude spreads to those with less money than him I think would be praised. But apparently not. I thin I will go get a sandwich you with me?

      Wiki is a great place to begin and for the most part has decent information. No one should use just one source for their knowledge.

    • Bruce Velocity

      From the Harvard Guide to Using Sources:

      “In fact, some instructors may advise their students to read entries for scientific concepts on Wikipedia as a way to begin understanding those concepts.”

      and this from Oxford University (2013)

      The results suggest that Wikipedia articles in this sample scored higher altogether in each of the three languages, and fared particularly well in categories of accuracy and references. As the report notes, the English Wikipedia fared well in this sample against Encyclopaedia Britannica in terms of accuracy, references and overall judgement, with little differences between the two on style and overall quality score. Similar results were found when comparing Wikipedia articles in Spanish to Enciclonet. In Arabic, Mawsoah and Arab Encyclopaedia articles scored higher on style than Wikipedia, but no significant differences were found on accuracy, references, overall judgment and overall quality score. None of the encyclopedias considered in this study were rated highly by the academics in terms of suitability for citation in academic publications.

  • Mark Captain

    These animals have to be thinned by the game wardens or hunters. No choice in the matter they will eat to much and then they will all die. Do some research people.

  • Mark Captain

    This author is a moron. If he really lived there he would realize that rain is sparce and so is food. If these animals are not thinned they will become extinct from starvation. Another thing the author knows so this is bs and hunting is important whether it be a hunter or a game warden somebody has to do it. So the game wardens sell tags and use the money to help conservation of habitat.

    Now poaching on the other hand and is infuriating. Not going to Jimmy Johns well whatever I dont really give a crud.

  • Kevin Schmidt

    They are called conservation hunts and the only animals that are allowed to be shot are the ones who are either sick and dying or are very elderly. This is one of the only ways wildlife conservation’s can make money other than through gov subsidies witch are few and far from availability, and private donors. Many of which said donors tend to be the hunters themselves. It might not be something you want to see, but it isnt an evil thing he’s doing.

    Jimmy John Liautaud claims that he no longer hunts “big African game”. Does anyone know if this is true? If so:

    This guy needs to stop paying for animal kills anywhere and put it to good use. Like feeding our Veterans and homeless with the tons of Good Food tossed out daily from his sandwich Shops. the bread and meat cheese all sandwich fixings . the drinks that are wasted tons of food every year .why not make the sandwiches and wrap then and send them to the local feeding centers and shelters in each area. I for one have not tried and will not try any Jimmy Johns .

    My son was diabetic and had not been doing well and it was known at his work, Jimmy Johns. He did not show up to work (was reliable) and no one called his contact number on his employee file nor did anyone call for a health check. A fellow employee/friend went to his house the next day and found him dead. He had his uniform on and was lying on his bed. He had given his insulin and was getting ready to leave for work and had low blood sugar. HIS LIFE COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED BY ONE PHONE CALL! It has been 10 years and I cannot even stand to see a Jimmy Johns Ad or look at a location. ONE CALL!!! He was only 27 and he worked his rear end off for them and lived walking distance to two locations that they had him work and always showed up when called to cover for someone. It just breaks my heart to see this man in these pictures. He is a creep.
