Paul Gareth Hanlon, UK The defence by pro-hunters that the dogs will have to be put-down should a ban go ahead is a fallacy. This debate is now closed. The different types of whales. What a damn stupid waste of taxpayers' money even debating this bill.
Some scientists even suggested they were plants. Is it right or wrong for circuses to use animals in their shows? I also lost Turkey's to uncontrolled dogs, but I do not however, hunt dog's. It seems it must be a "class issue" otherwise I can't see why this drags on. So hunting isn't barbaric then?
We live in an age where our clothing comes from sweat shops and we are quite happy to see humans exploited for our own gain. It is about gaining pleasure from the blood drawn of a tortured animal. If people cared that much about animal welfare, then there would be proper pressure on the meat industry to reform.
The modern zoo should act as a place for the preservation of endangered species, a safe house for rescued animals snatched from their habitat by those with malicious intent, and a breeding ground for those that can safely be kept in captivity to help spread a sense of wonder about the natural world to those who would otherwise not have the chance to see anything more interesting than a local labrador.

Then there is the part zoos play in preserving endangered species — I for one would rather the northern white rhino lived in a San Diego Zoo than ceased to exist entirely. There may be more support for a ban if it included fishing and shooting, and indeed, the keeping of caged animals - but of course, these are not considered to be the exclusive domain of the rich.
If the reality falls short of this ideal then reform is called for, not abolition. A ban is not an option that we will tolerate. As game became more of a luxury than a necessity, the stylised pursuit of it also became a luxury.
This ban is long overdue. You cannot retrain a fox hound, hundreds of years of breeding and training have produced a hound which is only really interested in one thing. The idea that there is a fair match between the bull and the matador is laughable. Should we adopt new pets from a shelter instead of buying them from a shop?
Purchasing animal tested cosmetics is wrong. All cultures throughout history have used animals in the context of sport and entertainment, from Roman chariot racing up to present day hunting, racing, and circuses.

Created by the mating of a male Lion with a female Tiger, Ligers tend to far exceed the size of both of their parents and although they share.

Many hunt out of a desire to enjoy hurting the animal. Most hunt out of a desire to get out into the. Also, most people think hunting should be banned because animals are killed.
Well, you should outlaw walking, too, because every time you take a step, you kill 2,, living things. Now, I don't agree with the hunters who just sit in a tree and shoot everything that moves. Jul 16, · Canned hunting is the hunting of animals that have been bred for that purpose.

Although canned hunting of varies species takes place around the world, the lions have become the preferred prey. The number of animals targeted for trophy hunting are at an all-time low.
If hunters truly wanted to conserve these populations, the best way would be to not kill them at all. It's not as though trophy hunting is the only way forward for conservation.
Of course, the biggest rebuttal to the hunting-helps-populations argument is in the numbers.Download
