<quoted text>First of all, if these jerks were continually insulting every word you typed and carried on incessantly among each other insulting you, are you claiming you would sit back and say nothing?? Well good for you. If you can't see what these disgusting trolls have been doing for DAYS here, then you are either stupid or oblivious.
Next,the FACT remains that MOST hunters do not hunt because they need to, they hunt because they can and they derive sick pleasure in killing. You can think however you wish, but I will fight till my dying day against ALL animal cruelty. Sorry if that bothers you but it is NONE of your business what I do, and the animals, if they had a choice would want more people like me and less like you.
Unlike you, to me ALL animals lives matter. Too bad you lack compassion and empathy.
I guess you think all hunters just get a thrill out of killin not..i guess ya therory is why hunt when ya can buy meat at the store..well like somone else said that meat is better for ya..no processing an harm chemicals in the food. This was Gods way we cant be over populated with animals. Hell in som countries there is canabals..where people hunt and eat other people..Ya need to get real. It is not illegal if it was half the world that hunts would be in jail. Ya need some help for sure

Your opinion is a litte extreme, but its yours to have.

I'm sure being raised to hunt had nothing to do with his attitude towards other animals like dogs.[sarcasm]
I hunt but i dont torture animals ya see God told us in the beginning of time what to hunt..and its not letting them suffer its a shot and bam its over wit.

Genesis 27:3 ESV
Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt meat for me.

Leviticus 11:1-47 ESV
And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying to them,“Speak to the people of Israel, saying, These are the living things that you may eat among all the animals that are on the earth. Whatever parts the hoof and is cloven-footed and chews the cud, among the animals, you may eat.

In Genesis we read that animals were created for the benefit of man. Adam was given the pleasure of naming them, and they were there for his enjoyment, help, and later as a source of food.
Genesis 1:26-28
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you: And, even as Adam received instructions for eating (Genesis 1:29-30, 2:15-17), so does Noah. Yet now, Noah receives specific permission to eat animals, permission Adam was not given (as far as we know).

i. Perhaps this was because the earth was less productive agriculturally after the flood, because of the ecological changes. Therefore God gave man permission to eat meat. So basically we can eat what is good for us. I wouldnt want to eat horses..and oxen back in the day like they use too. Why do ya think people back in the bible days lived to hundreds years old. It is wrong to eat domestic pets..it plainly states that in the bible as well. So see i know i aint perfect..but if this was here for us to replenish and eat by God then we need to do his will. And if ya think about it..look at all the dog an cat food that is made some of that is made with horse meat and other meats. Are ya gonna stop feeding ya dogs an cats their food or just give them grass to eat?? Think about it

So now it is somehow my fault that you're a bigoted idiot with preconceived notions about things you have no knowledge of? Are we now to believe that ALL vegetarians are foolish bigoted clowns because YOU are? These two asswipes were not taught to have respect or compassion at any point in their lives and just because one of them was also taught to hunt without respect or compassion, hunting is to blame? Give me a break!! What is wrong with the minds of these two dog killers was there long before they could have started hunting and goes much deeper than your shallow bigotry. How about this, there are an estimated 40,000,000 hunters in the USA alone which means that there are 39,999,999 who didn't torture and kill this dog. Personally I don't give a shit if the little scumbag is a hunter, I'd like to see him get serious punishment for what he has done. Ya know, I love to see things from your point of view but I can't get my head that far up my ass.

No, I just don't think he should have been able to come out and go right back to making millions. If it had been you or I we wouldn't have been able to go right back to our previous salaries, we would have had to get a job as a janitor or something. Know what I mean? There sould have been a "starting over" process and that didn't happen. The majority of society seems to consider his debt paid....so be it..... but I'm not required to like it. Just one mans opinion.

I have a dog that was rescued from that area that had been abused (shot with a pellet gun) Who knows, could have been the work of these two mental giants. I abhor what was done to that puppy and I agree that these are not children and I believe that what they did was thought out in advance. I have not heard that they were high or drunk which of course is no excuse but tells me that they had their wits (such as they are) about them when they did this.
They need the maximum sentence the law allows and need to go to a state penetentiary not some local jail.
I also find it unconscionable that anyone with a heart actually supports these two. What does that say about YOU!

<quoted text>These two kids are prime examples of why the hunting age needs to be restricted to adults 21 and over. Hunters shouldn't be allowed to take their kids into the woods at five years old and teach them how to hunt, a kids mind is not developed enough to understand what they're doing. Native Americans didn't allow their children to hunt until they were mature enough for this very reason. Children need to be able to develop mentally first, then if they decide on their own they want to hunt when they become adults it's they're decision, and not something that was ingrained in their mind at a young age. Adults are supposed to teach their kids respect and compassion for animals, and teaching them to hunt before their minds are developed just doesn't do that.
I disagree.
If parents teach correctly it is much better to start at a young age. this is a case of them being taught incorrectly, if at all.
Look at the parents that are pulling their hair out dealing with defiant teenagers that are sneaking out, partying, and doing drugs. Those are the parents that didn't go hunting, fishing and camping with their children at a younger age.

You need therapy and sincerely hope you seek it.
Liberty is a nut. Just as crazy as HAC. He tried to insult me by telling me I was a gay with AIDS...I am a married mom with two kids, no STDs of any kind. Then he said I was a liberal who slept with a lot of men in college....I am not liberal and I didn't even go to college or even slept with many men. LOL. Then he went on to defend his neighbor who tortured a cat with fireworks, using the excuse as it's his "property" and he can do what he wants with his property. He makes me sick. I think he is mentally ill.

I grew up on a farm, received my first firearm at age 8 and have been a hunter all my life. I agree that this forum thread has NOTHING to do with hunting. This was the senseless torture and murder of a defenseless animal that only wanted a home and someone to love it. These two monsters need to get their due and be watched carefully because this is just a warm up for these two. Especially Preston Odle. He has very lifeless eyes and has the look of a psychopath

Good. Do you live anywhere near Dresden? Maybe you can send the police a copy of it. Tell them that friends of Preston are defending him and saying he is "happy as a lark". That shows no remorse.
