Facts about Hunting
Some consider this barbaric, some consider it a tradition. I consider this a sport even though it is sad to see. Here some hunting facts.
-200 millions of animals are hunted each year.
-7% of the US hunts.
-In 60% of the wildlife areas in the US, you can hunt.
-Hunting is the oldest human sport*. Since the time of the ice ages we’ve been hunting, specially then because there was no plant food.
-As great as an animal might have defense against natural predators it doesn’t have a chance against the human firepower.
-Hunting disrupts hibernation, migration of animals.
-For animals like wolf who have a love mate for life, killing their mate destroy it’s life.
-Hunting agencies often make up excuses they only kill overpopulated animals like the white tailed deer but those animals only account for 3% of their kills.
-The government uses lots of the tax money to make roads in wildlife areas to make easy access for hunters. ( because hunters basically pay them back with the license to hunt).
-Hunters often say they do “fair chase”, what’s so fair about using a powerful firearm against a harmless animal.
