curriemaster: Seriously, why would you hunt animals you cant eat?


I still think that "if you eat it, then that's OK" is motivated reasoning. I don't see the distinction.

Most people that would even debate this crisis of conscious don't need to eat meat. They assuredly don't need to hunt for it. There is tofu at the supermarket.

But, eating meat makes people happy, at the expense of an animal's life. Not much different than sport killing. Dead animal, happy person. Animal exists to make person happy.

The animal doesn't go "Oh, you're killing me so that I can rot in your intestinal tract, instead of leaving my carcass to rot on the ground, so that's OK."

Is killing an animal for the pleasure of a tasty burger really less "sadistic?"

There's a name for people like her and its sociopath.

So you would ban sport hunting, but leave subsistence hunting?

Of course. I'm not against killing for food only against killing for pleasure.


So you have no problem with people killing off a species to eat it, but you have a problem with people saving a species simply because they enjoy shooting them?

I think you, like perhaps most, haven't really given all that much *THOUGHT* to this, but a lot of emotion. Let me lay it out for you.

First, there are three distinct kinds of hunting:

1. Subsistence hunting. This is hunting strictly for food, and perhaps also because the animals in question are destroying your food crop.

2. Market hunting. This is hunting in order to sell the parts for monetary gain. This could also include hunting for a bounty, it's just in that case government is the market.

3. Sport hunting. This is hunting for the enjoyment of it. It may involve the hunter eating his prey, but it doesn't have to.

Subsistence hunting is bad from an ecological standpoint. People who are hunting because they need to eat don't give a rat's ass whether the animal in their sights is endangered or not. In fact, there is decent evidence that whenever man showed up, we hunted the many of the large species into extinction for food:

upload.wikimedia.org

This has also happened more recently, and here in North America. Subsistence hunting in Appalachia led to the basic extinction of large wildlife in that area.

Similarly, market hunting is also bad from an ecological standpoint. People who hunt for profit don't care about sustainable, or even growing, populations of species they target. They want the maximum profit with the minimum effort. This is what led to the decimation of the bison herds in the American West, and what led to the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon (they were used as a cheap food source). It's a classic example of the "tragedy of the commons".

Sport hunting, hunting because you enjoy hunting, is different though. People who enjoy doing something tend to want to keep on doing it, so they spend a *LOT* of time, political capital, and money, especially money, ensuring that the species they like to hunt has a healthy population. Seemingly paradoxically, sport hunting leads to *INCREASES* in game populations. As a major side benefit, all the non-game animals that live in the same habitat benefit from the protection also. Back around 1900, there were around 500,000 whitetail deer in all of North America. They had been market and subsistence hunted down from a pre-Columbian population estimated to be around 25 to 30 million. Since then, almost entirely due to the efforts of sport hunters, their numbers are now back up to pre-Columbian levels. Similarly, moose, elk, black bear, and wild turkey are all benefiting from sport hunting.

Now, many sport hunters also eat their kills, but this isn't a requirement, nor should it be. The sport hunter who is merely after a more impressive trophy also performs a valuable service: His or her money is plowed back into conservation efforts, and quite often it is the wealthy trophy hunter who donates large amounts of land to organizations like the Nature Conservancy. Even the poorest trophy hunter is helping, though, as his license fees and the excises taxes on his gun, ammunition, bows, arrows, etc., all get plowed back into state and federal wildlife agencies. 

So your attitude, while understandable from an emotional standpoint, is actually counterproductive from a standpoint of conservation.

I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature's ways of fang and claw or exposure and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow - Fred Bear

This is the dumbest comment I've ever read. You know that in order to make that meat that you buy at the grocery store, that someone has to kill the animal it comes from? Just because you're buying something at the store doesn't mean that that animal wasn't slaughtered. It most definitely was.

If I had my druthers, I'd put a stop to killing animals for food. Humans are an agricultural species and don't need meat to survive.

Ya know, she's a kid with a lot of health issues, and pain, i would guess. That would be scary as hell, and you gotta feel for her. Still, I'm a little weirded-out about why a sick young kid would want to kill something so much.

Nah, sitting here thinking about it awhile, I guess if I'm gonna support hunting (and I do) I have to support this. I started off thinking of it as a last-wish sort of deal, and that would be creepy. "Before I die, I just wanna kill one more thing. . . " But it's not like that. She's just a sick young kid who wants to live her life, and in her case (and almost surely in her family), that includes hunting. I don't hunt, and my own illnesses just gave me more empathy for living things, so it seemed a little off from my perspective at first.

What kinda pissed me off was that it wasn't enough that it was a freakin' BEAR, she had to think of it as a lion. Jeez, c'mon kid, you're 11, try not to be so jaded, or you're gonna run out of apex predators kill before you can drive!

cassanovascotian: but killing animals for fun. That I don't get.


I know I'm going to get flamed for this, but whatever. Firstly, I'm not a hunter. I've never been hunting or even held a gun, but I don't have a problem with hunters. I used to, but I've since changed my opinion for several reasons.

1) There is a science to how animal populations grow and change. There is a set mortality that occurs every year; a certain percentage of the population will simply not survive either due to disease, predation, starvation or accidental death. Tag numbers are set to fall within that range, so that the total population is not adversely affected.

2) Hunting can sometimes be necessary to preserve the health or integrity of an ecosystem by controlling animal populations, such as culling deer or coyote populations. In most of North America we've pretty much eliminated the apex predators, either through fear or for protection of livestock, which can cause huge population spikes in many herbivore or omnivore species. In many cases, hunting or poisoning is the only thing keeping these populations from growing to the point of starvation and population crash.

3) Hunters provide the vast majority of funding necessary for biologists to study these animals and their habitats. Funds from the sale of hunting licenses and tags greatly outweighs any donations or funding from non-hunters or government. Research for environmental studies of wildlife population dynamics just isn't considered a priority and is usually the first thing on the chopping block when governments try to balance budgets. For example here in Canada, Ducks Unlimited, which funds countless studies of waterfowl and wetland ecosystems, is almost entirely funded by US duck hunters who travel up here for fertile hunting grounds.

As for whether it's "fun" or not isn't really relevant. To each their own. Some people think fishing is a lot of fun, I happen to think that it's boring as fark. But unless someone is a vegetarian, then they're ok with humans killing animals, they're just passing the responsibility onto someone else to do the dirty work. Plus we lose far more animals to habitat loss for human economic growth (agriculture and urban expansion) than we do to hunting.

Fine, kill them. But what the hell did that bear do? Do you need to eat a bear? If you need to eat it, then fine hunt and kill it! Just don't waste the lives of living creatures for petty little reasons as adding them to your home decor or for fun. At least eat what you kill or use them as medicine. Hanging their dead bodies on your wall won't prolong your life.

At least when people hunt deer, they actually eat most of it. I doubt that kid would even take a bite out of that bear if somebody cooks it.

I wonder how that girl would feel if it was her family that's being hunted down for fun by aliens or just plain evil people. "Nooo don't kill my mommy and turn her head into an ice cream bowl!".

Looking at Wisconsin bear hunting regulations it states that: "Youth ages 10 and 11 may only shoot a bear as a 'backup shooter' or possess a firearm if they are in compliance with all the Hunting Mentorship Program requirements." It appears that the role of a 'backup shooter' is described as: "...to shoot a bear that was first lawfully shot, but not killed, by a Class A bear license holder but only if killing the bear is necessary to protect human safety

The article states she killed it with a single shot and there is no mention of anyone else shooting first (Han Solo excluded) or being in danger. Is there any Wisconsin Farkers that hunt that can elaborate on what a "back up shooter" is and how that applies to youth hunters?

People that kill for fun, when properly regulated, ensure that we all have wildlife to enjoy. If it weren't for sport hunters, there would be no deer, bear, or wild turkeys in the entire eastern United States, and probably fewer other species also.

If it were not for hunters - there would be thousands of them, yes some starving and dying, but thousands. I heard the USA use to have Buffalo....

Are you talking about that Bison that's nine bucks a pound at the store? Damn good burger, maybe I will grab some for the weekend.  Glad my demand fuels their recovery as a species.


I will join you in a bison burger, my friend.
Cool thing: bison is BETTER for you than beef!
Bison has less fat, calories & cholesterol compared to beef, chicken, pork and salmon.
And, it has more iron - so is great for women.

If you like wildlife, you should be encouraging sport hunting, not denigrating it.
It's not that I like the wildlife for any reason other than grub
but I dislike people
Sport hunting is a groovy idea when it's done by folks like you and I
bow, blackpowder or even just dogs and a knife.
We can make these tools and we've earned the right through practice and training to use them.
I have no problem using technology to gather food on the hoof, that's why it is there.
I dig the make-a-wish trips that go with crazy ted, because they are using the whole critter
and I understand removing extra animals because there is no natural predation to keep 'em in check

What I don't like is the incapable being able to end something for no other reason than to end it
that's like the live-shot, internet hunting shiat. Or that fat kid who killed the giant, tame pig with a .50
that stuff chaps my ass

it's kinda funny that my comment got me painted as a critter lover
meat is meat

When you enjoy meat, you enjoy the flavour, the texture, all the little chemical cues that tell you it is satisfying. Killing an animal for that is just something that has to happen that, in our society, is easily overlooked.

When you enjoy hunting, it is impossible to separate that from the act of killing itself. You are literally taking pleasure in ending the life of an animal. And game animals are mammals, usually quite social ones. If you think there's no mental/emotional stuff going on in there worth considering... that's a very convenient and scary assumption.

Because shooting an defenseless animal from maybe 50 or 100 yards with a high powered rifle is somehow brave?
Who called her brave?

I simply questioned the sanity of calling for the murder of someone you disagree with, especially when that someone is a child.

I question the intelligence of a group who in one breath calls for murder of Limbaugh for implying an adult woman is promiscuous, yet has no problem calling a minor girl whore, coont, etc...

I question the integrity of liberals who spend days defending a fat raging reporter who was the "victim" of a suggestion to get healthy, but then have no qualms about bullying a sick minor.

The company I work for happens to be in the same building as the North Dakota Outdoor Adventure Foundation.

From their website:

The Outdoor Adventure Foundation, Inc. provides hunting and fishing adventures for children under the age of 18 and young adults under the age of 25 with cancer or other life threatening illness.

We also provide hunting and fishing adventures for disabled veterans under the age of 40 that are wheelchair bound caused by injury during active service or who have lost a limb during active service.

The hunts will include big game hunts such as deer, elk, moose, bear and also small game including duck, goose, pheasant and quail. The fishing trips are fresh and salt water species of many kinds including bass, walleye, northern pike, muskie, salmon, halibut trout and others.


I have seen some of these kids who are seriously ill to terminally ill and as long as the kids parents get the right hunting licenses (i.e. LEGAL to hunt certain animals), then I say more power to them.

It's 1 animal for F- sake, and she hunted it, she didn't grow it with a half a billion others crammed into a factory barn, she got out there, in the wild, and hunted... Good on her!

And fark you retards and your bleeding sympathetic hearts to the "poor black bear who never hurt anyone"

Except the people that get mauled when they go into their back yard to investigate who the hell is rummaging through their trash and find a bear staring them in the face... or worse, a cub, who's mama is right behind them...

And it's not like they are endangered, or even threatened...

I say, let the dying 11 year old girl shoot the bear... hell let her slit it's throat... I'll send her flowers, because she's a human, and that thing is an animal. It might not "deserve" it, but it's not more important than an 11 year old girl...

If my babygirl was dying, and all she wanted was to kill a majestic woodland creature before she dies, we'd be on the first plane to canada or alaska, rifles in tow...

She's my baby girl, and no animal running around in the wild is worth the smile on her face

The point here, which you took the round-a-bout way in order to miss, is the irony in a kid dying taking joy in killing something else.

Not very many people are dumb enough to think that death isn't a natural and necessary part of our universe. That doesn't mean you have to go out of your way to cause it, and it certainly doesn't detract from the fact that if you think it's entertaining you're a sadistic twat.

Culling an animal population to prevent a more painful decline when it becomes prone to disease or starvation - a natural cull - is one thing. Getting all grinny and giggly over killing something, however, is sociopathic.

The bear ended up as food and was deemed legal to hunt by the government agency that issued the permit, mainly due to the need to manage population density properly. Grow up and stop acting like a bunch of little girls.

This is very occasionally true for bears, although most of the time when you find a bear in town it's because it was driven there by habitat destruction rather than overcrowding. You can't generalize this to all carnivores however. North American wolves, for example, are very skittish around people, wolf attacks are extremely rare. It's a little different for European wolves, they're a little more aggressive. Cougars also stay far away from people.

sendtodave: curriemaster: Seriously, why would you hunt animals you cant eat?

I still think that "if you eat it, then that's OK" is motivated reasoning. I don't see the distinction.

Most people that would even debate this crisis of conscious don't need to eat meat. They assuredly don't need to hunt for it. There is tofu at the supermarket.

But, eating meat makes people happy, at the expense of an animal's life. Not much different than sport killing. Dead animal, happy person. Animal exists to make person happy.

The animal doesn't go "Oh, you're killing me so that I can rot in your intestinal tract, instead of leaving my carcass to rot on the ground, so that's OK."

Is killing an animal for the pleasure of a tasty burger really less "sadistic?"


I see the logic in your argument, but Im not sure the concept that it is morally wrong to kill animals for consumption because we now have high-quality alternative protein sources available to us is valid. The fact is that humans and our evolutionary ancestors were omnivorous, with animal protein sources being the most sought after due to the difficulty in obtaining them relative to the high energy density (or how long it kept you full). I would argue that we do have a killing instinct, buried deep in many folk, as well as subconcious reward association with consumption of meat that cant be suppressed only by consuming non-animal proteins. The fact that we eat what we kill ameliorates the fact that we have had to kill in the first place; killing something to hang on your wall satisfies only that killing instinct.

My stepdad from Michigan would disagree about the bear.

The only time I've had elk I left a car payment on the table behind me. I had meat all week. I don't think one bear is any more important than all the chicken I ate that died being boiled to death this week. I'll bet she did a better job on the bear than the average meat packer.

Hibernating Bear with Black Magic Sauce
2 - 3 # bear roast (depending on the size of your crock-pot)
Brown well on all sides. Place in crock-pot with a cup or so of water and salt & pepper. Cook on Hi for 3-4 hours.

Turn down to Lo. Add potatoes and carrots in large cubes. Add more water if necessary. Cook another 3-4 hours. Don't lift the lid any oftener than necessary. Remember, he's sleeping!

Serve the following on the side or skip the veggies and add to the roast when you turn down the heat. If you decide to add to the roast, don't add more water to it as you might if you are going to add veggies.

Black Magic Sauce
Sauté:
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 T butter
Add and simmer 4 minutes
1/2 C cabernet
Add and simmer 5 minutes
1 tsp salt
1 - 2 tsp pepper
1/1/2 tsp dry mustard
3 packed T brown sugar

BobDeluxe: for good or for awesome: Good lord. I'm always surprised at the number of people on Fark that think killing an animal like this is a horrible tragedy. None of you need to eat meat. You do it because you like it. If killing this bear gives this little girl and her family some comfort good for them. As long as the animal is not endangered have at it.

Never have been into killing animals, but I'll eat the hell out of them. It's dead. If you don't eat it then it died in vain.


Hm, not sure this is a strong argument. It's saying that there is an arbitrary line where an animal's life is forfeit. The "use" of the animal has to be for food, not for entertainment, in this case. Why the distinction?

A better argument might be that, morally (not pragmatically), the bear's life is worth more than the little girl's entertainment, but even that is pretty arbitrary.

Well done snookums! That means you really are stronger and more powerful than a bear, doesn't it! Unfortunately, you won't be able to take that rifle with you where you're going! The bear is waiting for you then.

I may not be morally superior to many people on this earth but I will happily say at least I didn't wish an eleven year old child dead due to her legal recreational and dietary choices.

I hear bears are DEELISH! I've got some room in the freezer if she doesn't want him. Bet the fat slobs are tender as hell.

That bear is never going to frolic in a meadow. Never going to gorge itself on berries. Never going to find another bear to mate with and have cubs and raise them. This beat's life was cut short by this little girl.

That's sad.

cassanovascotian: They were hungry and needed to eat. They did what they had to do. I got no problem with that.


What if they enjoyed it? Because I'm betting that they did. Immensely.

Hunter/gatherer societies put the hunters at the top of the social hierarchy. It was the most important social institution. Hunting wasn't just important because they needed to eat; they could gather stuff, grow stuff.

But that's lame. That's women's work.

Anyway, they farking loved them some hunting. Do you think they'd feel resigned to "doing what they had to do?"

I think they bathed in blood and partied.

What you call "being vagina-ey" (which is, itself, kind of a weird insult) , I call "not taking sadistic pleasure in killing things."

Alright, alright, don't get penis-y.

Anyone remember this PR delight from the Make A Wish foundation?

http://articles.latimes.com/1996-05-11/news/mn-2933_1_bear-hunt

What's the best way to feel better about immanent death? Killing. Now Make A Wish outsources their hunting related wishes, so they can make it look like they don't do that any more. As non-profits go, Make A Wish is just about my least favorite. For many reasons.

doglover: Little monster.


Most people just fantasize about taking others out in a blaze of glory before they die.

She actually snuffed a bear. The hell she's going to is the one that rocks.
