I don’t think that hunting is cool. Yes, some people in some parts of the world, including parts of this country, need to do it to survive. Yes I eat meat and where do I think meat comes from anyway? But hunting for sport isn’t right, in my books.
We just don’t need to hunt to survive. We hunt just to kill other creatures. It’s not a fair fight. And this video of a playful young elk in a huge puddle just embodies the reasons why I believe those critters should be left alone. If we’re overrun with deer and they’re leaping onto roads, causing car crashes that harm people, bring in wildlife experts for the cull. Don’t let them get stalked and shot by a bunch of amateurs who might have a crappy aim. Freeze the meat to serve up at soup kitchens or something and please, no heads on walls.
