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).
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.
The animals take over other animals habitats causing the ecosystem to change which is not a good thing. 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
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. What people need to realize and accept is the fact that hunting does not harm the animals as severely as leaving them to overpopulate does.
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.
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). Animals were going extinct, and way too many of them were being hunted and fished daily.
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).
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.
People used hunting as a necessary way of life. They would use the animals meat for food, and their skin for clothes to stay warm. Now hunting is mostly used as a sport, trophy hunting is very common. Hunters will hunt for the joy and the thrill of killing an animal, but they do not consider the consequences. Body 1: Most animals don’t do anything to deserve being killed in the middle of their lives.
Some would argue that hunting is not ethical and should not be considered a sport. Hunting has been a part of life since the beginning of time. Hunting as sport is ethical because it does not violate any animal rights, while being an act of exercise and helping with population control. Animal rights has become a controversial issues, because people are concerned with animal welfare, harm, suffering and death. What about a hunters rights?
With the grey wolves hunting the deer, they began to feel more dominate and spread through the park. Once wolves returned, the deer began to avoid certain areas of the park and their behaviors started to change. 2) When wolves began to get reintroduced to Yellowstone, many concerns rose. With released
Have you even seen or want to see a “superpredator?” If not, just go outside and look at the people around you or look in a mirror. Researchers have studied the hunting habits of birds, fishes, wild mammals, and humans. A new study shows that humans are very unique and strange predators.
Research done on animals has caused medical leaps in discovering information about medicine, biology, and psychology. Testing on animals can inform people on the effects of environmental dangers such as pollution or radiation. The animals that are tested on usually have similar inner anatomy as humans but are different in some aspects, which can vary the results of testing. This makes the results useless and the animal then dies for nothing(animal rights). Many people may think the food they eat are killed humanely.
