And also don't forget a notice explaining how grateful the animal is to his sponsors for keeping him in captivity. Seriously, go to Sofia Zoo and see for yourself!

Hey People, I am Uzbek and I live in Tashkent. I can say that no one in Uzbekistan knows about this isse, cause you can critisize your president in your countr, but we can't do the same thing with ours, cause the next day you say ANYTHING wrong about the goverment actions, you'll find yourself in jail. So, all I want to say is, that the president of Bulgaria was not aware of what he was doing when he killed that animal. It is not his fault, it is the fault of our president Islam Karimov.

At least Parvanov can shoot straight, not like D!ck Chaney who shot his friend while hunting.

It is so annoying that SNA won't let you write "d!ck" but other words, like shlong, prick, cunt, twat, bitch, son-of-a-bitch are allowed. Go figure!

I immagine the commie Purvanov being reborn as a wild boar with a red star on his head....What a hunt that will be...

What's the difference between an English zoo, and a
Bulgarian zoo?
A Bulgarian zoo has a description of the animal on
the front of the cage, along with a recipe.

As long as we have people like him in power, nothing will change.

Please come on now the pig with lipstick did not know if Africa was a country or continent?Do you think she knows or ever even heard of Bulgaria?Cheney now would be a better option if he was left alone.

He can invite Sarah Palin to visit BG so they can make a competition who will kill more wild animals.

This guy clearly ruined his life. He obviously has many interesting talents - he can shoot, he can spy on the enemy as an undercover agent etc. but instead of doing something useful he choose to become a BG president.
