Bobby, That is a socially irresponsible stance. By sticking your head in the sand you don't have to see where your food is raised, slaughtered and butchered. Pitiful outlook coming from someone that considers themselves to be on a higher level of social consciousness."Bobby, have you ever watched a video of what goes on in a slaughterhouse? You know, the ones who supply the groceries? A good hunter puts the animal down with much less pain and torment."
No, I haven't, but then again, I'm not a sociopath.
I'm sure it's awful, but I don't care to know.
I have worked in a slughter house. I worked for Swift Packing. I am also a hunter. I would say I believe the deer, elk and other prey live a better quality of life then do the cattle that I saw being processed.
Would you prefer they live their lives knee deep in fecal waste, are brutally killed, butchered (sometimes this step begins before the animal expires) or do you lean toward the free life of a wild animal that is dead often instantaneously after being shot?
I personally think hunting is a humane way of balancing the deer population. Without the hunters to thin the herd our cities would have more of a problem with deer endangering travelers on the highways than their are presently. The deer also serve as a nuisance to farmers by consuming crop foods.
