If the world today gave up hunting, wildlife would become non existent and animals would struggle to thrive due to disease and overpopulation. Outdoorsmen also gain plentiful amount of experience while hunting. They gain relationships, knowledge of the outdoors, and they maintain an old tradition and keep it alive and thriving. In the future hunting may become an even more pressing and controversial subject; however, we must do everything in our power to keep hunting alive. Hunting has a deeper meaning to some people and to take that away from them is in some ways inhumane.
In the story “To Build a Fire” the protagonist fails to recognize nature strength, almost in a disrespectful manner while traveling in the harsh Yukon environment. The down fall for him not listening and underestimating nature itself led him to his death. In this story you could find irony because he was also warned by a wise old man not travel alone in extreme conditions. The protagonist failed to listen to the old man that was his first mistake. The protagonist got lucky a couple times among his journey and came across many trial and errors, but the character’s luck started to run out.
The short story, “To Build a Fire’ by Jack London is a devastating tale of a man who makes the foolish decision to go off the Yukon’s main trail. The story starts off saying “Day had broken cold and gray”(First Paragraph), as the man further travels off the path he gets into extremely cold temperatures, “The Yukon lay a mile wide and hidden under three feet of ice. On top of this ice were as many feet of snow”(Second Paragraph). This man, this exceptionally foolish man who has never had a winter still continues to walk further upon the trail. However, this man was foolish but he was also simple, he looked at things in simplicity, he realized even though it was 50 degrees below freezing that the frost bite could be avoidable with mitten, hats,
Although zoos are fun to visit, animals should not be held in captivity because the breed can become overpopulated, they do not know how to survive on their own, and they are being abused. While it is true that some species are going extinct; animals in zoos, however, can become overpopulated sending animals to their deaths. According to an article by One Green Planet, the text states that “Surplus animals can also be animals that the zoo no longer finds profitable, cubs that were a big hit the year before might be replaced by newer, younger animals. Since zoos are not responsible for lifetime care of animals, they can get rid of the animals who are no longer profitable or useful” (The Shocking Truth About What Happens to ‘Surplus’ Zoo Animals, One Green Planet). This shows that zoos will sell their animals to their death to gain business.
With the hatchet, he had to struggle hard to get food and at the same time protect himself from the wild animals in the wilderness (Erickson 213). Additionally, he had to battle for survival in the cold environment with hopes that one day he will be saved. After a long struggle in the wilderness, he managed to get out of the forest victories and more energized due to the hardship he went through while in the
Towards the end of the lyric, Little Red is talking about how the wolf seemed nice, but he was not good. We cannot always trust what people say; we need to follow our conscience. Not everyone is going to be a good influence on me and if I trust everyone things will not go as planned. If Little Red would have thought more before she trusted the wolf none of this would have
Without hope, nothing can be accomplished. The nuclear winter will be very cold and harsh, in order to survive, one will need to prepare and plan very carefully for the coming disaster. Winter can be cold, but cold is not even close to what these men were experiencing. They experienced “expansive blizzards [that] paraded for days over the vast opening, swirling and settling and thickening” (Van Tilburg Clark, 1914, p. 178). In the article “How to Survive a Nuclear Winter” it states that they “really have no idea how cold it could get during a nuclear winter” (Roberts, 2007, para.
In the story he goes out in Alaskan forest called the Yukon about 50 below zero without a partner to go with him. Very dumb because what if something were to happen to you such as you are too cold to move or feel your hands and feet, plus you are wet and need to make a fire to survive and you cannot which in the end you die by freezing to death. He was a new comer and had no idea what was in store for him during these long day without the sun to get some of the warmth from. When you are new you should listen to people how have been where you are at and take their advice to heart and do what they say without
Wildlife Conservation is often seen as a bad thing, but if you look at it from my perspective, then it is actually a good thing. People think of it as holding wild animals captive, but we are actually protecting them from poachers. The purpose of Wildlife Conservation is to protect the animals in danger, which I am in agreement 110%. Other people argue that we shouldn’t have conservations, but they don’t know the harm that can happen to unprotected animals. Now, there are some cons to wildlife conservation, but so many more pros.
His failure to build a new fire is completely dependent on the stiffening of his fingers: "When he touched a twig, he had to look and see whether or not he had hold of it. The wires were pretty well down between him and his finger ends" (21). The harsh weather had shut down a vital part of the man's body, much like a winter storm can knock down a telephone pole and leave a part of a town in
