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.

She's probably worth around $750-790k, according to humansforsale.com. Hard to say, with the whole dying thing. I substituted "High Blood Pressure," "Kidney Disease," and "AIDS" for the imminent organ failure.

Whereas big bear meat is only worth 45c. 

You do the math.


I dunno man. That site can claim that, but you're not going to find anyone on this planet that would shell out 750k for a diseased kid.

Ask anyone if they'd rather have a bear, or a diseased, depressing child. She's a total money sink. The bear is just going to be out there doing bear stuff, pretty self-sufficient.

What has been overlooked is the obvious underlying purpose of this supposed trophy hunt.
In reality using advanced sciency stuff, doctors successfully transplanted the bears heat and liver into
the 11 year old girl. In years to come the the girls DNA will fuse with that of the bear to create a hybrid species. The "bear girl" will develop an elongated snout and a warm furry pelt. She will then flee to the forest and using her human intelligence and beast like powers she will roam the land in a one bear-girl crusade against all who hunt for sport.

So starts the legend of Bear-Girl.

dittybopper: Langdon_777: I am a fan of letting anyone become a member of an indigenous group (if they are accepted) but lets keep the hunting to the "damn its hard" level - not night scoping from landrovers.

I'm sort-of down with that, to a point.

I chose to go the "make it damned tough" route for myself. That's because I found it too easy with a scoped .30'06 or a super-fast compound bow. Instead of chasing after bigger and bigger trophies as a method of ramping up the difficulty, I went primitive instead.

That's not to say I advocate that it must be done that way for everyone.

Not everybody has the time, money, or inclination to make hunting as difficult for themselves as possible. Nor should they, necessarily, because then it discourages people from trying it in the first place. If you want to use a high powered rifle with a 3x9 variable range-finding scope, etc., be my guest. So long as the game regulations are written to ensure a viable (and hopefully expanding) game population, I don't even have a problem with people using night vision googles, and hunting from Land Rovers.



Personally, I love sport hunting, for the same reasons you posted above. However, I think if you hunt, its your responsibility to end the animals life in the fastest, most humane way possible. If someone wants to shoot it with flint arrows, they better be able to put that arrow through a tennis ball at hunting range+5 meters. I've spent too many hours fixing up critters that ran into bad hunters to grant moral high ground to anyone based on their tools.

IMHO, a hunter should hunt with whatever gets the job done for him. If you cant shoot a bow, but you can perform outpatient surgery with a bolt action 338, than that's what you should use.

But nope, she shot it because killing things is fun. Well little girl, do you know who else seems to like to kill for the fun of it? God. And he's aiming down his little finger-gun at you as we speak.

and it showes her the same mercy for the next thousand years


Why? Of the three main kinds of hunting (market hunting, subsistence hunting, and sport hunting), only sport hunting has ever lead to an *INCREASE* in game populations. Hunting for food is bad for the environment, hunting for money is bad for the environment, but sport hunting is *GOOD* for it. That's because people who hunt for fun want to continue hunting for fun, and they voluntarily spend tens of millions of dollars every year for conservation efforts to do things like preserve habitat, which benefits all species, not just those targeted.

If you like wildlife, you should be encouraging sport hunting, not denigrating it.

sendtodave: guises: Big Ramifications: Carnivores have a range. Doesn't matter how "huge" their habitat is, once it gets too crowded then they start wandering in to towns.

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.

Of course, "overcrowding" isn't a word that's been applicable to wolves or cougars for more than a hundred years so maybe that's moot.

That's another bit of mental gymnastics, actually.

It's wrong to go kill majestic animals! But if they come into our territory, well now, they have it coming.

Never mind that we're actually the ones encroaching on their territory.

Eh. Might as well just say "It's psychopathic to kill animals for a reason that I don't like."

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.
