​Canadian TV Host Under Fire for Photos of Cougar Hunt in Alberta

"Must be compensating for something, small penis probably"
​Canadian TV Host Under Fire for Photos of Cougar Hunt in Alberta
Steve Ecklund, host of Canadian hunting show The Edge, has received huge online backlash after making social media posts boasting about killing a cougar in northern Alberta.
 
Earlier this month (December 3), Ecklund shared a series of photos of himself with the dead cat on Facebook, including a shot of him cooking a stir-fry with the meat. He followed up the initial post, cracking a joke about a mountain lion cookbook.
 


 
While Ecklund captioned the original photos thanking Big Cat Adventures "for the eye opener into your world of houndsmen," many others have taken to social media to react with outrage.
 
Even former prime minister Stephen Harper's wife, Laureen Harper, chimed in on Twitter yesterday (December 20) — claiming that Ecklund was compensating "for something, small penis probably."
 
See some of the other reactions pouring in from Twitter below.
 
As the Canadian Press notes, cougar hunting is legal in Alberta from September to February for residents, and from December to February for non-residents.
