Who loves animals more, a big-game hunter or a big-city dog lover?

Philip Glass is walking through the African Mammal Hall at the Natural History Museum, pointing out which of the species on display he’s shot and killed in his life. There’s the giraffe and greater kudu, the cape buffalo and the hippopotamus. But the animal he’s most proud of hunting is the lion.

Last year, Glass — not the composer, but a rancher who breeds Dorper sheep in the middle of Texas — spent $100,000 for the opportunity to hunt a lion on a guided safari in Zimbabwe. You can actually watch him do it in a new documentary out this weekend, “Trophy,” which explores the ethically murky waters between trophy hunting — paying to kill wild, exotic creatures for sport — and animal conservation.

After Glass shoots the lion, cameras follow as he walks over to it, and his eyes fill with tears. He strokes the animal’s mane and holds its colossal, limp paw in his palm as he cries.
