They should be hunting themselves

If hunting is baned more annimals will be endangered.hunting is a method of controling annimals and preserving them.as long as it is done in a sustainable way. The humans killed al the carnivores so hunting is necessary to keep the annimals numbers in place other wise they all will die off starvation.

NO Sir…the ONLY animals that need to be "controlled" are the human animals. Without our greedy, selfish, arrogant attitude no one needs to kill anyone in order to live well, be well and happy!

Hunting leads to child molesting? Give me a break... What planet are you from? Not one single one of us would be here if hunting by our ancestors didn't take place... Unless your a vegetarian, you all are in denial where your meat comes from & how it is obtained... Creatures are raised to be slaughtered so you can have cook outs, eat out at restaurants & feed your families... You just don't want to know how it came to be on your plates... I hunt to control animal populations, to feed...

I hunt to control animal populations, to feed myself & family & what i can't use, I donate it to homeless shelters & food banks... That doesn't make me a child molester... It makes me a responsible citizen & nature lover... In the US, if animal populations aren't controlled by responsible & respectful hunters, the government is forced to kill the animals & waste their meat to prevent soy farms & corn fields & wheat crops to be ruined & make less production for those other foods people eat. It is a circle of life & balance must be maintained...

Animals also hunt and kill other animals for food, and in the past it was a necessity. Some Africans still rely on 'bushmeat' as a source of food. But killing endangered species just for sport is another matter. And there's the practice of 'canned hunting' where lions are bred just so they can be hunted and killed.

The only problem is we are killing animals for sport not to survive. We are selfishly desyroing whole populations all for humanities game a trophy's explain to me how that is acceptable in your eyes.

Please Sir,"Give me a break...What planet are you from?"What "balance"?This is EVIL! Just because our ancestors were savages are we suppose to be too?We would be here even if our ancestors did't kill anyone to feed them selves.Why?Because we are herbivore.No one needs to kill anyone in order to live well be well, healthy and happy. We have no right to kill,feed from someone else's body.It is revolting,tasteless, gruesome,repulsive and bloody awful.Without the man made tools we can't...

And most importantly eat blood-free foods to stop poverty, deforestation,pollution and extinction.

I was recently told that there are far too many elephants and other wildlife in certain parts of Africa. Selling the shooting rights to very rich individuals actually goes some way to funding the preservation schemes they have. Sounds bizarre I agree, but makes sense In a sad sort of way. I am not pro hunting; however, if they have to be culled, why not use the money to fund other schemes out there ?

If it sound "bizarre" it is!Supporting evil actions called"hunting"is wrong and must have never be allowed in a first place.There is no such thing"too many"elephants but too many humans yes, trying to get rich quickly and ruthlessly destroying everything in their path! When the animal's lands are ripped off their feet for profits, disregarded as"Nuisance"easily murdered for more profits who do you think is to blame?Where do you think Sir the animals should go...left with nothing, no land, no...

Add to this the animal slavery for more profits called "farming" will only create more pollution,deforestation and will add to wild life extinction.I Such practices will bring these beautiful places in ruins in no time. Culling is EVIL. People have choices the animals have none!

Conservation covers all aspects - land encroachment, animal yield, feed availability, water resource and so forth. We covered the Impala - do you calculations and home work on the largest ungulate in the world - ELEPHANT then add all the other 100's of species of ungulates into that as well. Where is the land to feed this animals ...... oh yes - taken over by the city slickers sitting comfortably in there high-rise building that were built on the land that these animals were 1st free...

Instead of talking nonsense about stopping hunting in SA ad other countries why not concentrate and come up with ideas and HELP stopping Rhino poaching for their horn - which is the same base as your finger nails (Keratin)

Stop Hunting in SA? Besides the GP that hunting brings to SA what about the overgrazing that WILL occur and the animals you are trying to protect (through ignorance) WILL die of starvation. Land encroachment in SA is taking away the natural feeding of these animals. Lets take Impala as an example: herd of 150 animals of which 100 are breeding females. There is a yield of 60% per breeding season of which 50% of that will be new females. Do your calculations - after year 3 breeding...

There is a yield of 60% per breeding season of which 50% of that will be new females. Do your calculations - after year 3 breeding season your herd is sitting at 336 head of which there are 208 breeding females. Each Impala eats a 1/4 of its body weight a day (av of 7.5kg per Impala per day x 336 = 2520kg (2.5 tons)). Now we haven't taken into account all the other ungulates their breeding yields and their impact on the grazing and browsing. Just do your homework before you think you know what you talking about!! Conservation is just more than not shooting an animal!!
