Lying about the origin of an image is enough to disqualify anybody from a contest.
I'm not arguing that. No artist should just make up stories surrounding their work!
What confuses me is why contests are limited to captures of unconfined animals.
The animal planet guys do more to ruin the wild nature of africa than the tourists.
Tourists aren't supposed to leave well traveled routes,
the animal planet guys just drive around like it's the wild west-
disgusting in a way
by capturing the beautiful shot of the wolf jumping over the fence, this guy probably saved some poor wild wolf the displeasure of his company.
The contests that encourage the chasing down of wildlife should be banned
