Deadman, the kill was clean and legal but so what? The animal was killed for the enjoyment of Matt Hughes and the pleasure of his son. He paid so he could kill those animals which I reckon if you gave me a gun and sent me to africa I could kill without any hunting training and no skill. Point, aim, kill.
I find it hard to see the skill in that to be honest in those particular circumstances and find it hard to see the justification for matt hughes killing that beast(s) or the king of spain killing those elephants a few months ago.

I also know that in the US and Canada people hunt with hounds and have done for hundreds of years, its was never just england and ireland. Thats a pretty standard tradition right? Again chasing shit down and ripping it apart, with the hounds often getting killed during the hunt too. Seems like a lot of death and pain for some animals in order for people to have some enjoyment and test their skills.

And there is a big difference between taking the life of an animal because you gotta eat and taking the life of animal when its for your own sport whether you eat it or not afterwards.

This argument has been going on for the last 30-40 years and I dont expect people who have grown up with the tradition of hunting to agree with me. I just think people who go out to kill animals for sport and enjoy putting that animal through fear, chase, pain etc are soulless to a degree. I doubt the animal cares if the guy chasing it down to takes it life has respect for it. If someone was chasing me down to kill me I certainly wouldnt give a shit.
We are never gona agree on this, good debate anyway...

The fact that you say that tells me that you have never hunted. It is much harder than it looks. Hunting is a father/son activity in farming communities like the one Hughes grew up and lives in.

What Hughes did and what the King of Spain did are completely different.

Hounds here are used for tracking prey. Not killing them. And the hounds themselves are rarely injured much less killed. You really have no idea how people hunt. You literally are arguing against something you have no practical knowledge of.

No there isn't. If the animal is legal, the kill is clean, and the meat used properly there is nothing wrong with it. Except in the minds of people who will gladly eat a cheeseburger but cry when they hear that a deer's been shot.

The problem is your side of the argument has no basis. No knowledge of the subject. No experience with the people you condemn so freely.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

My cat is a terrible person. She thoroughly enjoys maiming squirrels, mice, birds, snakes and occasionally baby rabbits. I've watched her toy with them, handicapping limbs to watch them attempt an escape, only to pounce once more when they have a notion of safety. Even worse, she usually loses interest once she crushes their throats or eviscerates them and they quit making noise or putting up a fight!

She does however usually offer up her gruesome carcass trophy to me, her overlord/god. This flatters my massive ego and thus I allow her to sleep in my home and use the magic sand box of disappearing poop. Maybe Matt Hughes just wants a warm place to stay where he can also hide his poo in the laundry room?

No I havent hunted but I have shot weapons, and while I think there maybe plenty of skill in tracking a deer and being quiet enough to sneak up on it and get your shot off is not easy. However we are talking about open african plains where hunters drive around in jeeps. Your going to tell me that takes a high skill level with such a big target and guides finding them for you? I don't have to be a hunter to form an opinion on that

And dogs do get killed during hunting there has been plenty of incidents if you look online, in fact a case has been filed about it as you can see here.

http://www.outdoorlife.com/blogs/new...hunting-wolves

I read also the average hunting dog dies between 5-7 years of age, they are trained with shock collars
Hounds are used for tracking prey with often the hunter far behind on his GPS. Your saying that when the hounds corner the animal, the just stand there and wait for the hunter to come? They don't attack the prey and the prey (bear, wolf etc) doesn't attack the dogs?
Seems highly unlikely to me

Can you imagine deadman getting chased down for 10 miles with a bunch of people and dogs hunting to kill you? Can you imagine the trauma that presents for an animal and what a horrible experience that is for them? Would you do that to your dog?

I dont need experience in being cruel to and killing animals for my argument to have a basis.

No your powers of imagination are clearly a superior basis for an argument.

This needs closing, it's just opinion followed by shutdown and/or insult for 12 pages.
