It looks like actor and television host Joe Rogan has become the latest celebrity to take heat over a hunting photo posted online.

Earlier this week, professional hunter Cameron Hanes posted the above photo to his Facebook page along with the following message (paragraph breaks added for readability),

Joe Rogan becomes a bowhunter. Last night, on a memorable bear hunting evening in Alberta, Joe made a perfect shot on this beast. We were hunting from the ground eye-to-eye with the bears when this mature boar offered Joe a shot.

However, Joe Rogan, being Joe Rogan, wasn’t just going to take the criticism sitting down.
