    to the other sentient beings that share the planet with us.

    I dare you to watch this video.

    One has to be made of steel to hold off the tears.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the video, kitten : )

    I forgot to include some basic info about this wonderful, life-chanching flick:

    Powder (film)

    Powder is a 1995 film directed by Victor Salva, about a boy, nicknamed "Powder", with incredible intellect, telepathy, and paranormal powers. It stars Sean Patrick Flanery in the title role, with Jeff Goldblum, Mary Steenburgen, Bradford Tatum, Lance Henriksen, and Brandon Smith in supporting roles.

    The film questions the limits of the human mind and body while also displaying their capacity for cruelty, and the hope that humanity will advance to a state of better understanding.

    Your use of the word sentient in this application is subjective and controversial at best.
    While I can't view the clip on this computer subsequent posters (and yourself) have indicated it's from the movie Powder. The scene you are referring to was specifically set up by the director as a back drop showing his vision of good versus evil. Painting the hunters in that specific light provides the contrast between the protagonist and the antagonists. It's cinematic manipulation that has little basis in reality, i.e. science fiction.

    Sure...

    Nothing beats the fascinating experience of being shot and killed with respect and reverence...

    It gives your dying moments a whole new meaning no matter how agonizing your death may be.

    People,

    What kind of callous, cold hearted person don't empathise with a creature that didn't do any harm to anybody having their internal organs shattered by an act of violence and meeting death with excrutiating pain and suffering like the deer portrayed in the movie?

    Or better yet:

    How can any sane person consider this paroxysm of gratuitous brutality their idea of fun?

    What kind of monster are you all?

    it is called nature..and we are supposed to be a part of it..I have infinitely more respect for a person that slays a beast with respect and eyes wide open than some hypocrite that hides from the reality and purchases meat raised in unnatural conditions and with a death without reverence but sheds tears over Bambi meeting his destiny
