Wild vs Man

While on one hand, Discovery Channel propagates the message of conservation, airing beautiful and inspiring wildlife documentaries, on the other hand it encourages mindless brutality through shows like 'Man vs Wild' in the guise of teaching survival tips. In one of his absolutely repelling recent clips, Grylls flushes out bats from a cave suing smoke, and batters them to death with a makeshift club, referring to his 'sport' as bat tennis. It wouldn't be wrong to call the makers of this show environmental terrorists.
