There are people who argue that hunting belongs to the oldest traditions of mankind. This reasoning makes these people believe that it still is correct to kill animals through hunting them down. Arguing back that we also do not want to go back to living in caves might not help here.
In any case: hunting animals who are trapped, bated, tethered, or in any form incapacitated equals torture and murder.
“The state of Alaska is allowing inhumane, unsportsmanlike and scientifically unsound hunting of wolves and bears — and we need your help to stop it.
The controversial practices include baiting brown and black bears into easy shooting range using greasy meat, donuts and dog food; killing bears in their winter dens; and “harvesting” wolf pups and bear cubs.
If not for permanent protective measures now proposed by the National Park Service, even wildlife in our national preserves could be victims of these extreme, cruel practices, allowed elsewhere in the state by Alaska’s Board of Game.”
