Calling this a "sport" may sound like a fun game, but the animals never volunteer to play. I have a hunch the hunted animals would prefer to happily sit on the sidelines and not be tormented and killed.
There is a moral issue that seems to elude those who get their satisfaction from killing animals at their whim. There are all kinds of atrocities that are legal in some parts of the world that most of us would find appalling.
How could a brave big game hunter be so afraid to show up and address the media and his critics? Are you trembling at the thought of facing those children leaving toy animals at the doorstep of your dental office?
