Comedian and animal lover Ricky Gervais took to twitter to show how real men shoot animals. We’ll give you a hint. It’s not with a gun.

He wrote, “Take a picture, not a trophy. This is how real men shoot animals..” and then linked to the image below.

Gervais has always made his feelings on hunting perfectly clear. Just recently, he altered the word hunting so that it more accurately reflected the pastime. He wrote, “New Word..C*nting; verb. The act of cowardly hunting. ie Hiding behind a bush with a rifle when the animal has no gun and can’t get to you.”

In fact, if you follow Gervais on twitter, you’ll note that he often posts about pressing animal issues. Just this morning he asked everyone to switch to cruelty-free cleaning by pledging to use only Leaping Bunny certified cleaning products. That means, no animals were tested on for the sake of a new toilet cleaner. Isn’t that something everyone can get behind?
