Actor Matthew McConaughey Started a Ranch, Animal Rights Wackos Come Out of Woodwork to Attack Him

Actor Matthew McConaughey started a ranch and hunting preserve with his brother and now the animal rights wackos are coming out of the woodwork to attack him.

McConaughey has 22,000 acres–yes, 22,000–in Mertzon, Texas and offers a deer hunting experience for paying customers. The customers have thousands upon thousands of acres over which to hunt the animals.

But the property is fenced in, so to the animal rights wackos that means McConaughey is somehow being mean to animals.

The celeb gossip site TMZ reported on the hate the actor and his brother face…

Some Facebook postings in the last 24 hours are caustic:


— “We just lost all respect for you … This is NOT HUNTING … This is disgusting behavior for human beings!”

— “NO MORE support for you Matthew in anything and everything you do.”

We reached out to Matt’s rep … so far no word back. But the actor’s nephew, Madison McConaughey — the ranch cattle manager — tells TMZ they’ve had death threats from people who don’t understand the nature of what they do. He says, “People are disgusted with us but we’re disgusted with them.”

Madison adds, people who come there do so for the “hunting experience” and he says “We’re proud of what we do.”

Another ranch manager tells us, “No meat goes to waste after the hunts. It helps feed our families.”

Well, alright, alright, alright.
