Just playing the devil's advocate here: Hunting is the murder of an innocent life. All life is equal and that means that you shouldn't be able to take a life for convenience.
Unless you NEED to hunt for food. If not, then there's no reason to kill innocent animals for sport.
It is the murder of innocents, also known as SERIAL KILLING. Please arrest the people who think serial killing should be legal.
Name: brandon Teacher: Mrs.sheahan Class Period: 8th Hunting Essay What if there was a world with no deer or any animal? Well that is what hunting can cause. I know that some people like hunting, but there are many reasons why it is bad. Hunting is negligent because it can cause endangerment, it is cruel, and it is expensive. Hunting can cause a lot of endangerment. "Hunting can be while a doe is looking for food and if she dies then their baby is all alone." Said Daniel m. Ashe. People at epa.gov had said "all living passenger pigeons were killed for two reasons the trees got chopped down and the other was because they were shot for sport." Both of those things were caused by humans. Iowa department of natural resources said, "Currently the deer herd is estimated to be 200,000 but after hunting it was 100,000." "A total of 367 species of bird are endangered because of hunting." Announced by endangered species stand and also book.org. That means a lot of animals are endangered or extinct because of hunting. Hunting is truly cruel. Hunting is cruel because, " hunting accidents destroy property and injure or kill horses,cows,dogs,cats,hikers,and even other hunters." Debated by peta.org. Now that is very cruel. "Thousands of animals die as victims of this "sport" every year," this was announced by animal equality.net. "The Bears,Cougars,deer,foxes, and many other animals who are chased,trapped, and killed by dogs on (sometimes illegal) hunts." Said Jo-Anne Mcarthur. You can go to the grocery store to get meat, but it is still killing animals. Hunting is expensive. "Custom guns cost $4000 without the scope and $6,500 with scope.", said by david-e-petzal. Us.bape.com said " camo leight weight jacket $464.00 and with soutein collar they are $572.00!" I would never want to spend that much for a jacket. Fur buyer.com said " Moscow hide and fur cost 200 dollars. Wow that is a lot of money for some fur and hide. Sure you could earn all the money back by selling what you got, but with all the money it cost to get the things than it would take a very long time to get back. Hunting is way too negligent to be a good thing. It is cruel and can cause endangerment, plus it would take forever to earn all the money back because it was so expensive. Now you should keep the animals alive and not killing them by never hunting again. sites icanimal.org epa.gov iowadnr.gov peta.org peta2.com animalequality.net 7. us.bape.com 8. fieldandstream.com 9. hatland.com 10. furbuyer.com
If it is done for survival, then hunting is valid. However, hunting to display an animal's pelt or head is ridiculous and egoic!
Unless you hunt for food, killing for sport and your personal entertainment is sick. While hunting rabbits and other small animals for food is justified, because it is an act out of the need to eat as a living animal. Killing endangered species like african lions, elephants, and numberless others who I will not name just for their pelts and heads -or worse, just for your own entertainment - is inhumane and completely unnecessary. Arguments such as "They are below us" or "We are more powerful" are invalid because unless you are completely ignorant about either yourself or the species in the wild, you would know that your physical abilities are nowhere near that of a jaguar or a lion, just to name a couple. Secondly, you forget that the ill and the elderly are also significantly weaker than us, but do you go around with a gun, trying your absolute best to shoot them in the head? I'd hope not. Other arguments like "This was how humans lived prehistorically" are also ridiculous because although this may sound like a surprise to you all, we as human beings, along with all the other animal and plant species, are living in the 21st century and we no longer need to kill for food. Of course, there are still people who hunt for food and that is alright, but killing animals for their coats because it is "beautiful" is cruel and inhumane.
Anything that causes pain and death is bad
What makes us more important than animals?
Hunting is an inhumane way of killing animals. We are no higher or lower than any other animals. Animals mainly kill humans when humans are holding guns, or during the migration season when they're travelling with their young. How would you feel if someone came into your house who you didn't know and they shot or tried to shoot you or your family? You'd try to protect them, not say "Well, at least the human race is going down!" The human race is the largest population of animals in the world, and yet we say we need to control the animals that are nowhere near as populated.
I love animals and I hate seeing them get killed.
hunting is a popular sport that should always be aloud
I don't really care, as long as we have their genetic makeup.
Their are several reasons why hunting should not be banned. Food, controlling the population of certain wild animals, certain manufactured goods need animal parts, some people find it fun (myself included), etc.
depends if you count killing chickens cause we eat them so yeah
It's our right.
All life is not equal. Human lives are less worthless than any other life.
Hunting keeps certain populations in check. However, there should be (and already are) restrictions on certain endangered animals.
hunting is a very fun and challenging
You've got to be kidding me. I apologize for not wanting to mindlessly buy pre-killed, processed, and prepackaged meat from a store. @Mister_Man, you must be a vegetarian because meat is meat and an "innocent" animal is the same as a slaughterhouse animal. Hunting is now classified as a sport due to the ability to go to a store. That shouldn't make make hunting illegal. Also, banning hunting is as bad of an infringement on people's rights as banning gay marriage. Leave hunters and gays ALONE.
hunting is the best thing since toilet paper you cant banned this.
Hunting should be allowed because it has always been in human nature for our hole lives so if people take that away its like taking away history.
I like to hunt
Hunting is conversation
Hunting is a natural instinct for humans and its the same as animals in the wild, but you wouldn't try and talk a coyote into eating organic free range chicken
god made many deer for a reason and most people that say hunting should be banned have never been hunting
some people live off the land and hunting is the way to put food on the table. Just because people think that hunting is "murder" don't mean that people should give up what they like to do and stop hunting.
It's a way of life and a way to control safety in that are children dont get eaten
hunting is good. YOLO> cheese is tasty. don't eat it on sunday. moo, dgibdgibdsuibduiyssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
NO BANNING HUNTING THAT'S HOW SOME PEOPLE LIVE
hunting taists like potato cheesy dolphin chops so it is aviesly good
I'm sorry to say, but UNLESS you're purely a vegan, you're a being a dick when you say that hunting is inhumane, murder, or that you're concerned about the animal's pain etc. Overall, hunters are much moral and ethical. What do you think is more humane, an animal raised and killed in its natural environment, or raising an animal in squalid, cramped conditions, pumped with hormones, leaving them only to be tased, decapitated, suffocated, or something of the like? The difference is obvious. You could argue that it's cruel that hunters kill just for pleasure. But think of it this way. When you go to the grocery store, you don't HAVE to buy that steak, but you buy it because you LIKE it. Medium rare with ketchup or whatever the hell you plan to do. Then when you purchase that meat, you're essentially supporting the system that keeps animals flooding into slaughterhouses. You're supporting the cruel environment that I just described earlier. Whether you support hunting or not, it all comes down to the animals being killed for our sheer pleasure. The difference is the way in that these animals are raised and killed. I don't know about you, but I would much rather live a normal life and get shot in the head rather than a life of torture and impending doom from birth. I challenge you to go look at pictures and videos of how animals are treated on farms and slaughterhouses. Go see how much you can stomach. If that doesn't disgust you, then who's the real killer here?
