The War on Wildlife
U.S. hunters kill 200 million animals each year, and cripple, orphan and harass millions more. Our skies turn into shooting galleries and our woods and fields turn into killing grounds just to provide recreational “fun” for the 6% of the population who hunt.
Hunting advocates claim that the slaughter is necessary to combat overpopulation and prevent starvation. Wildlife “management” policies, however, artificially inflate populations of game animals by promoting the killing of more male than female deer, leaving an abundance of females to reproduce. Policies that eliminate predators also upset nature’s balance.
“We cannot have peace among men whose hearts find delight in killing any living creature.” Rachel Carson
