Prairies dog create diversity, destroy them, and you destroy a varied world (p86/87).” In other words she means, killing specie is also killing other species because is a circular, each one of us is in this world for a specific reason. If specific specie is destroyed, therefore, the other species that was relaying on it will progressively die
This sounds like it would be a very sad place to live and if I were not personally living in it I would feel awful for the people that were. Imagine thinking about another society that all had handicaps and you being able to keep that thought in your head and not them. This is why I would not like to live in a utopia like this. In “The Most Dangerous Game” General Zaroff gets bored with hunting animals and decides that he can hunt humans that get trapped on his island. When a world renowned hunter gets caught on his island he decides to treat him like a friend instead of prey.
He only resorted to hunting humans because he was bored with the regular styles of hunting. There was no more thrill in hunting for him, so he tried to find a new challenge for himself. Advancing with this topic, Zaroff could have done a variety of different things to replace hunting to give himself that thrill. For example, he could challenge himself with different styles or methods of hunting. Instead his sport of murdering humans he could also try new weapons to hunt animals with, or maybe even invent new weapons used for hunting.
Over the past years grizzly bear have been going extinct, this is because hunters go out and kill this amazing animal. People claim that hunting these “beast” supply food and others say that they kill for population control. This paper will talk about how there are big game hunters who are causing grizzly bears to become extinct, which means there is no reason for population control on these animals. Hunting for grizzly bears should not be allowed. Grizzly bear hunting is being treated as a sport and should be stopped.
His being hunted like an animal being hunted led him to figure out the value of life. What kept him from giving up during the three days of him being hunted was his new value of life. This value made him want to never become what Zaroff was. Zaroff was a murderer because he enjoyed the challenge of hunting humans over animals, which were no longer a challenge to him. Once Rainsford realized what Zaroff was doing he became afraid of him and refused to hunt with him when he had offered.
“I am still a beast a bay” (80). In the previous quote Rainsford expresses that he still feels that he is being hunted. Killing a man is ok if it is in self-defense. In The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell Rainsford feels that what Zaroff does is murder. Zaroff does not believe what he does is murder but instead that he is giving them a chance.
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 Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell, Rainsford says, “The world is made up of two classes-the hunters and the huntees.” This quote shows than Rainsford believes that human life is clearly more valuable than animal life. This is also shown when he says, “Hunting? Great guns, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder.” He says this in response to finding out that Zaroff hunts humans. Though he has no qualms about killing animals for personal pleasure, Rainsford clearly puts a high value on human life. Zaroff, on the other hand, does not value human life as highly as Rainsford.
When General Zaroff offers Rainsford a chance at a hunting expedition on the island, Rainsford turns down his offer, “Thank you, I’m a hunter, not a murderer.” Rainsford believes that there is a difference between hunting and murder, even though they both involve killing other beings. Once they see someone else doing the same job to a more extreme level, people may begin to doubt for their actions. As General Zaroff tried to convince his guest that they were playing the same game together, Rainsford argued that they were not, just because of the different tastes in prey. This leads to Rainsford’s change in seeing how hunting is dangerous in all
Elijah disregards human lives by treating humans as a motivation for his own satisfaction which results in mental instability. This is seen when the squadron was short on food and Xavier asks Elijah if he is hungry. Elijah responds by saying, “I have found the one thing I am truly talented at and that is killing men. I do not need food when I have this.” (Boyden, 320). This quote signifies that Elijah views killing men as a sport rather than an assigned job.
