I feel chinchillas should not be hunted because there is many other animals that are not critically threatened like chinchillas like bears and fox that even provide more fur! if you disagree give me reasons why this poor rodent should suffer!

Chinchillas will die by being shaved they live in the deserts which are cold at night (it will freeze) and hot at day (it will burn)

1. Chinchillas are not always friendly, huggable pets that like to be held. Some owners have the pleasure of having tame chinchillas who love attention, but, for the most part owning a chinchilla is a lot like having a cat. They want to do what they want to do, and prefer to not be held or cuddled.

2. Chinchillas are nocturnal. They sleep all day and spend all night running on their wheel, bouncing around their cage, chewing toys and eating. If you plan to have your chinchilla's cage in the room where you sleep, be aware that this may be a problem.

3. Chinchillas can live up to 20 years, maybe more. Owning a chinchilla is a long-term commitment. Before you purchase or adopt a pet, make sure you are prepared for a pet with such a life expectancy.

4. Chinchillas can be expensive pets, especially in the beginning. The chinchilla itself can be an expensive purchase, but you also need adequate housing, a cage that is safe and sturdy - and accessories. Chinchillas also require food and hay, dust for bathing and bedding.

5. Vet care for chinchillas can be quite expensive and you will need a vet with exotic experience. Chinchillas generally only require vet care when there is an illness or injury, and for this reason there are not a lot of vets with chinchilla experience. You will want to make sure you have a vet lined up ahead of time instead of waiting until you need one. They can sometimes be harder to find than you think.

6. Chinchillas can overheat quickly and it is imperative that they be kept cool. If you do not have air conditioning or a cool room in your house, a chinchilla may not be the right pet for you. It is thought that the highest temperature can tolerate is 75 degrees. It is best to keep your chinchilla in a temperature range of between 65 and 70 degrees year round.

7. Do you have allergies? Most pet owners will not have allergies to the chinchillas, but to their dust or hay. If you have allergies to either of these, you can still own a chinchilla but might want to wear a mask and/or gloves when handling the dust and hay. You may also benefit from using an air purifier in the room where your chinchillas are housed.

According to my S.O.M.A (Mikal), Chinchillas are fish- we hunt many species of fish and therefore, we should hunt Chinchillas. BOOYAH!

No, but seriously, don't hunt chinchillas, they ain't done nothing wrong to us.

If you find an article in support, and you put it as a citation, then I think that it is fine.

Please stop plagiarizing. Just showing your source isn't enough. You need to put quotation marks, and your quote can't be your whole argument.

No, chinchillas are cute and fury and don't hurt us but bears will not hold back to kill you

Reasons for voting decision: Con had good arguments in the end. If he would have brought them out sooner he may have won. Since pro had no chance to reply to those arguments, they don't count. Pro made a better case for his position.
