How can there be any legitimate argument to support canned hunting ? I can't think of anything more inhumane cruel or gutless than to shoot a captive animal. What kind of people are they that can engage in such appalling behaviour that gives an animal no chance whatsoever ? My only conclusion is that they are people who have serious psychopathic personalities and that canned hunting gives them the freedom to express this. That a well respected US hunting organisation The Dallas Safari Club has come out and criticised the practice speaks volumes about the awfulness of it all. Their argument that it deprives the concept of hunting of a fair and level playing field does little for me however. All hunting is an atrocious pastime that has no value on any level I can see. We as humans can surely find it in our hearts and minds the respect that animals deserve by treating them more like we would expect to be treated ourselves and not as a form of murderous entertainment.
