Is it necessary to hunt for...
I've been seeing more shows about the envirenment lately, and by no means do I consider myself a tree hugger, but some of them make sense to me. The ones that really catch my attention are about whale hunting. I mean I can watch deer or cows or chickens be butchered, and it doesn't bother me one bit. But when I see the killing of whales it sort of makes me say "What the FooK?" It just seems to me that whales and related animals like dolphins and porpoises should be protected. I guess maybe because they are an animal that has intelligence that it separates them from the rest of the ocean creatures, for me atleast, along with the possibility the could become extinct. And the fact that Americans don't dine on whale blubber, that I know of, well, maybe eskimo's, but that is a separate issue. As far as I know they are supposed to be protected, but Japan, Denmark and I think Norway continue to do it, along with Russia. Japan apparantly has so much whale meat they use it as dog food. And Russia hunts them to feed the Fox and Minks they harvest for fur, which I also think is BS. I know I am being sort of vague here, but I was just wondering what everybody else thought. Also, I put this here because it seemed sort of appropriate, because it has to do with hunting, but I am in no way against hunting. I know for a fact without hunting deer populations would decimate they're food supply and they would eventually starve, and pigs and aligators are becoming a big nuisance and danger to humans and other animals. There are a couple more topics along this I would like to throw out there too.
