Submit Why hunting should not benned I have been hunting with my family for over 4 years and I am a better person because of it. In my opinion hunting should not be outlawed. I believe this for three main reasons, there are no preservatives or hormones in wild animals so they are healthier for you, deer are over-populated to begin with, and hunters get an overall better experience in nature. First of all, there are no preservatives or hormones in a wild animal, but there are many in farm raised animals.
Take Action Hunting — the murderous business Hunting may have played an important role, next to plant gathering and scavenging, for human survival in prehistoric times, but the vast majority of modern hunters in developed countries stalk and kill animals for recreation.
Hunting is a violent and cowardly form of outdoor entertainment that kills hundreds of millions of animals every year, many of whom are wounded and die a slow and painful death. Hunters cause injuries, pain and suffering to animals who are not adapted to defend themselves from bullets, traps and other cruel killing devices.
Hunting destroy animal families and habitats, and leaves terrified and dependent baby animals behind to starve to death. Getting the trophy carcass is an unwritten guarantee. Despite increasing public opposition, hunting is permitted on 60 percent of U.
Quick kills are rare, and many animals suffer prolonged, painful deaths when hunters severely injure but fail to kill them. Bow hunting exacerbates the problem, evidenced by dozens of scientific studies that have shown that bow hunting yields more than a 50 percent wounding and crippling rate.
Some hunting groups promote shooting animals in the face or in the gut, which is a horrifically painful way to die. Several states allow a spring bear hunt during the months when bears emerge from hibernation.
These bears are not only still lethargic, which makes them easy targets for hunters, but many of the females are either pregnant or lactating. Mother bears are often shot while out and about foraging, while hiding their cubs in trees or leaving them in their dens. When mother bears are killed, their nursing cubs have little to no chance of survival as they will either starve or be killed by predators.
The stress that hunting inflicts on animals — the noise, the fear, and the constant chase — severely restricts their ability to eat adequately and store the fat and energy they need to survive the winter.
Hunting also disrupts migration and hibernation, and the campfires, recreational vehicles and trash adversely affect both wildlife and the environment. For animals like wolves, who mate for life and have close-knit family units, hunting can destroy entire communities.
However, the concept of sport involves competition between two consenting parties, adherence to rules and fairness ensured by an intervening referee, and achieving highest scores but not death as the goal of the sporting events.
With an arsenal of rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders, handguns, bows and arrows, hunters kill more than million animals yearly — and likely crippling, orphaning, and harassing millions more. The annual death toll in the U.
Hunters also frequently use food and electronic callers to lure unsuspecting animals in front of their weapons. The truth is, the animal, no matter how well-adapted to escaping natural predators she or he may be, has virtually no way to escape death once he or she is in the cross hairs of a scope mounted on a rifle or a crossbow.
Hunting is Not Conservation Wildlife management, population control and wildlife conservation are euphemisms for killing — hunting, trapping and fishing for fun.
A percentage of the wild animal population is specifically mandated to be killed. This selective mis-management, with its exclusive focus on numbers to be killed, ignores the science that shows that nonhumans, just like humans, have similar capabilities to experience emotions, and have families and other social associations built on multi-leveled relationships.
Natural Carnivores are the Real Ecosystem Managers While hunters and so-called wildlife professionals pretend to have control over ecosystems and the animals they kill, natural predators such as wolves, mountain lions and bears are the real ecosystem managers, if allowed to survive naturally.
For instance, the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park caused ripple effects throughout the ecosystem, with an increase in biodiversity, including a higher occurrence of beavers, several bird and plant species, and natural habitat and stream recovery.
Before you support a wildlife or conservation group, ask about its position on hunting and trapping. If you are a student of environmental studies, conservation and natural resource management or wildlife biology, challenge the concept of hunting as the foundation for wildlife conservation and management.
Speak up, write letters and comments, and encourage others to do the same. Join or form an anti-hunting organization and help spread the word about the injustice done against wild animals by hunters and state wildlife agencies.Hunting should be banned because.
Hunting makes animals extinct for example the mammoth or the dodo bird. A survey was done in and they found that 80% of the animals that are killed don't get used for good purposes they just leave them there to rot.
Hunting should be banned because killing innocent animals isn’t a sport, it’s a sick hobby. Far too many people are either injured or killed every year participating in this “sport.
Bow hunting exacerbates the problem, evidenced by dozens of scientific studies that have shown that bow hunting yields more than a 50 percent wounding and crippling rate.
Some hunting groups promote shooting animals in the face or in the gut, which is a horrifically painful way to die. They claim hunting is necessary to control foxes and that if hunting is abolished foxes will be killed by other, crueller methods.
None of these claims bear serious examination. If minority sports must be protected at all costs then we should argue for a return to cockfighting or bearbaiting, even duelling.
I personally think animal hunting should be banned because hunters are one of the main reasons why animals suffer, are extinct, and are endangered. Because of hunting animals are becoming extinct, and with arsenal of rifles, shotguns, muzzle loaders, handguns, bows and arrows, hunters kill more than million animals yearly.
While many states have limited or banned canned hunts, there are no federal laws regulating the practice at this time.
Other Victims Hunting accidents destroy property and injure or kill horses, cows, dogs, cats, hikers, and other hunters.
