Kroenke concedes to animal activists over UK outdoor show

{{featured_button_text}}

Little surprise that when it came down to fight or flight, Stan Kroenke chose to fly.

The Guardian newspaper in England reported that Kroenke had been getting lambasted by animal-rights activists after launching MyOutdoorTV, part of Kroenke Sports and Entertainment, in the United Kingdom.

According to the report, the show came under fire for showing videos of big-game hunts that included images of, well, dead big game.

Even Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbin got into the fray, calling it a "brutal, unethical and unnecessary activity," the Guardian reported.

On Friday, British media was reporting that Kroenke has now ordered that such hunting scenes be removed from future programming.

Kroenke, some in our fair burg may recall, killed the St. Louis Rams after the 2015 season when he moved the team to Los Angeles. He also is part owner of the Arsenal soccer team of the English Premier League.
