Except he did feed the locals. You are attributing other motives to him. You can only judge a man by his actions - not his thoughts because you only know one of the two. He says the he flew over their to hunt and help out the locals. He did that.
Almost everyone is an animal lover of one kind or another. Some as pets, others as friends, some as food, and a few special ones as significant others. Most of all of those types eat meat. Unless you are truly barbaric you tend to kill your food before you eat it.
So what makes this worse than a slaughterhouse or killing a deer? Nothing.
