Starry,
I can understand your feelings about not wanting wild animals killed but realistically you no longer live in a world where wild animals roam freely without limitations. This is the modern world where people have encroached on the natural habitats reducing the ranging territory of all animals to land the size of postage stamps. If these wild animal populations are not humanely culled then they will do one of two things - starve to death or become problematic for farmers and ranchers trying to raise the food which supplies the grocery stores and your dinner table. If you have ever seen a starving deer herd you would wish them a quick death, this I know and have seen.

The responsible hunter hunts humanely and consumes or uses what he/she hunts. I agree that the use of dogs to run down game is not humane and I am against it, however to say that any hunting is wrong is a naive in this modern world.

snares that are used now

this one had a happy ending, but a lot more don't have this type of ending,
the more they struggle the tighter the snare gets,
they die slow an in pain,
also in snares,dogs cats an other animals get caught,

shooting which is used also

this is a video of a fox getting a clean shot, there's loads of times the marksman misses an just injures the fox,which leads it to die slowly,an in pain,

with dog hunting, they prey has chances to get away,,,
so very true... and also good for a girl of your age to understand

I won't try to educate anyone but if you are against hunting then you should really pay a visit to your local slaughter house. Talk about inhumane killing. But that's life in our world today. Take the pig..The smartest domesticated animal on earth even above dogs. Anyone have a problem with baby back ribs.. Do you think they have any less feelings than a wild pig. If you were lost in the wilderness within two days you would be praying for a gun...LOL But hey everyone has a right to there own opinion even if it is unrealistic.
If dogs could train humans it would be a perfect world!!!

i agree with hunting, as long as its not just for the kill,and its done quickly, then just left after it has been killed,

when we had our birds, my fiance either cooked the pheasants,rabbits, or so on, or give them to the bird as food, so it had a varied diet, an not just chicks,rats,etc

Have to agree here, not to mention the unsanitary conditions that the factory animals are raised in. I am much less concerned with hunted meat as opposed to farmed meat as far as disease goes. Has anyone ever seen a chicken factory? If I had the land I would be raising my own.

With in a mile of my home 5 deer were hit by vehicles in 3 days. We have rabid cats and racoons to deal with. The deer are getting tummors as the population is to great. and People are getting bit and I am sopposed to bleach my yard because the rabid cats cross through it. I dont hunt but am now for rabid animals. This problem is due to 2000 acres of land (From a defunct naval base) in town limits that is off limits to hunting and people.

As i live on the chesepeake bay water fowl hunting is a natural and was the main means of support of the local people through out the history of the country. Labs golden and Cheses live for the retreive. I dont hunt but am training a lab, to retreive in the true hunting manor.
