"Raptor is simply replaying the HSUS strategy on shutting down bear hunting in Maryland."
I have never met anyone who eats bear meat. I've heard that some people have "tried" it before, but it's not served as a main dish in any family I know of. Maybe I'm wrong. So, yes, if people don't eat it, I'm against killing it- unless it's in self-defense. There is also too great a chance that cubs would be left to die if a mother is killed.
This is another run at flawed logic Raptor.<quoted text>
Of course I eat ground beef. So you had a bear burger and found little difference. Does that mean you now have a preference for bear meat? How many other people do you know that craves bear for dinner?
You seem to be suggesting that if someone doesn't eat it, as a preference, or as a main dish, with any degree of regularity, it's something they shouldn't be eating.
Otherwise... why bring it up?
You could have said, "So, yes, if people DO eat it, I'm okay with killing it BUT there is too great a chance that cubs would be left to die if a mother is killed, so I'm against it."
Or is your beef burger okay and my bear burger not okay, because I don't eat one at a high enough frequency and you do?
