Pro-Hunting Argument To hunt or not to hunt, many see it as a negative and its being cruel to animals. Other think if humans keep hunting, animals are going to go extinct. But what many don’t know is how much hunting helps animals and the conservation of animals. People that don’t know what really is going on they always head toward the negative. I’m Going to explain how hunting helps wildlife and how Hunting permits are good because they help maintain animal conservation.
Due to the fact that not all hunters claim all of the animal remains produced from big game hunting, many hunters give the meat, bones, and hide to local communities for their usage. The revenue produced from hunting goes back to the local community that the animal was taken from. All trophy hunters pay many fees for a big game hunt, but considering that most hunters do not take home the entire animal they killed, anything that remains from the hunt is left for the benefit of the community (Big Game). “Game laws should be drawn primarily in the interest of the whole people, keeping steadily in mind certain facts that ought to be self-evident to every one above the intellectual level of those well-meaning persons who apparently think that all shooting is wrong.…” (Roosevelt). This excerpt shows that not all hunters go out to shoot an animal and leave it for dead, the animal is not wasted, it is actually spread throughout the communities for the locals use.
Cruel Captivity Animals caged in zoos are prisoners that never committed even one crime. Many people believe keeping wild animals captive in zoos is harsh and unnecessary, while others believe there are valid reasons to continue this archaic exploit. Confining wild animals in pens that are not remotely similar to their natural habitats does not educate the public about their existence, conserve their population, or provide a favorable quality of life for them; it is a cruel and unnecessary act of human selfishness. Zoo enthusiasts believe the public is educated about the animals they house. In fact, there was a time in history when that may have been true.
Some of the animals that are brought here could have the same similar habitat that the native animals have and could scare the native animals out of their original habitat.Since the animals ruin the environment people should not release the non native animals. People who are worried about there invasive species getting to big should call someone who deals with wild animals and they will decide what they need to do with the
Hunting has a deeper meaning to some people and to take that away from them is in some ways inhumane. In addition, the detrimental wildlife issues that would emerge if hunting were no longer an option to keep animal populations under control would increase significantly. The idea of keeping hunting alive is crucial to keep our wildlife safe. Hunting may not apply to all people in the world, but it has to be done. In today’s world there is no other possible way to manage our wildlife in such an effective manner as we do it now.
Although there are negatives to big game hunting, the benefits heavily outweigh the opposition. A negative to big game hunting is that it can endanger the hunter. Hunters can be attacked by the animals they hunt and can be injured or kill. As the article says in page 4, “many people die each year due to accidents while hunting”. For instance, Hunters are susceptible to being attacked by the quarry when hunting and if there are others nearby, the animal may start attacking the rest of the group in its angered state.
This career is very important so entire species of animals are not wiped out, by careless people poaching and killing way too many animals. It is also critical that game wardens keep people from being terrible to the environment by leaving trash and other such things out in the environment. Game wardens are and have been for many years the protectors and enforcers of the wild game and habitat of the country to keep many people, accountable and safe. To fully understand the need for a game warden, one has to look at the history of this career. Back before the 19th century before the United States government passed laws and set aside national parks and national reserves for wildlife and their safety (Careers in Focus 61-62).
A high number of people, according to polls, state that they would rather like to see an alternative to testing. While many say that animal testing must be done to guarantee safety, it isn’t actually safe. Products tested on animals may be poisonous to humans but companies use labels stating “may be dangerous” for liability purposes.“Testing cosmetics on animals is a cruel, outdated and unnecessary practice. Our nation’s largest trading partner — the European Union — has banned the sale of animal-tested cosmetics and proven it is possible to produce safe cosmetics without harming animals.” (Bob Barker, 2006). The reason laboratories don’t want to find an alternative is because of the time, work, money, and they take an observation.
Other cases such as hunting for sport are also justifiable, as it help reduce over populated species of animals. Killing in war is something that can’t be helped and there are reasons why people kill others. According to the article “Is War ever Morally Justified?” many deaths occur and they happen because of the enemy shooting at U.S. troops. A 19 year old boy gets in a gunfight with a young
Without knowing what the long term consequences are feral ungulates which include pigs, goats and sheep were all brought to Hawaii by foreigners as a food source and some were also brought in for sport hunting. What started as a good intention soon turned into a menace for the Hawaiian Islands as these animals destroyed native plants, threatens the existence of native animals, and lastly threatens the health and welfare. With no predators except for humans, the feral ungulates reproduced at an alarming rate and nothing was put into place to control the populations of these animals. Therefore the population grew and the problems that came with it also became a huge factor in the livelihood of all that inhabits the Hawaiian Islands. Methods to control the population of all feral ungulates need to be put into place to protect the native species of Hawaii which in turn would preserve the traditions and the culture of the Islands.
