    Humans are animals too. So I can agree.

    Overpopulation of animals is not endangering the planet....it's the humans that are doing that.

    it goes without saying that trophy hunting should be outlawed.

    and that's all I will say.

    I'd love to do some culling....unfortunately it's illegal.

    You've failed to understand why animals are culled.

    Please remember this is in the Lounge, and no politics.

    Not at all Skye....
    Sometimes the largest buck or lion needs to be culled due to it's poor health as it ages.
    There's no reason to let it suffer when it can be taken and the money for the hunt can be turned towards conservation.

    It may not be endangering the planet... But if you do any research you will find that overpopulation contributes to disease, inbreeding and loss of feed habitats... Without natural predators some species reproduce so quickly and in such numbers that culling is the only answer... Governmental Agencies enforce laws that eliminate some of the problems I have mentioned... I think you would be surprised at the number of Private Organazations dedicated to saving animals...

    Can't imagine you've hunted much, who'd take a tough old bull over a sweet eating yearling.

    I've worked in an abattoir. Meat is not necessary, protein can be obtained other ways.

    Can't imagine you have Deer Hunted at all.. First of all male Deer over two years are known as Bucks, not tough old bulls... After the first year young male Deer are called Button Bucks... Yearlings are self explanatory...
