Elephants, gorilla, orangatang, chimps, dolphins, whales...........
There aren't that many highly intellegent animals aside from us. Leave em alone! I personally think there is more than mere instinct that drives those animals. They have complex social structures, some use tools, all have thier own unique language and regional dialects, some speak sign language (the ones that don't I am sure, could if they had opposable thumbs and digits). They exhibit emotions, complex puzzle solving skills.
Don't get me wrong I like shooting, killing, and eating things. But for me the thought of eating one of those would be canabalism. That's not to say I wouldn't try some of it if it just so happened to be put in front of me. I just won't go out and shoot one of em.
Besides, there are plenty of other things to shoot out there that are BIG and DANGEROUS. Like the cape buffalo in luvsafari's link, hippopotomus (#1 animal in africa that kills humans, I might be wrong, but I know it's top 10), Baboons (I was attacked by a baboon in Japan), Hyena, Lions, Zebra, Antelope, Ibix, Crocodile, Rhino, Manatees...etc.
oh off topic but if you want to see something really neat, look up "Karate Chimp" on google.
So...... that's my two cents, I hope it gives some big game hunters a moment of pause to reflect.
Chant this three times when you have an one of the afor mentioned species in your crosshairs.
