Wolves Are Killed Not Harvested
October 11, 2013
“Sport” hunting is a brutal business. It means taking the life of an innocent animal for personal gain. The hunting industry doesn’t like the word kill because it exposes the lie that animals die peacefully after being arrowed, shot, trapped, choked and generally tortured to death. So they sanitize the cruelty of hunting by using euphemisms to describe their evil deeds. Harvest is a favorite.
Harvest: The gathering of a ripened crop
Are wolves ripened crops to be harvested as turnips, green onions, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, pumpkins, squash, bell peppers, grapes, etc? Or are wolves and other living creatures sentient beings who feel pain, who suffer, who bleed, who die?
Admit what you’re doing killers of beauty. You’re not harvesting anything. You’re making a conscious decision to take an innocent animal’s life. Stop sanitizing your actions. We have your number, you kill for sport. You may have the law on your side, laws that were created by people like you, who’ve turned our wildlife into “crops” but you don’t have karma on your side. And I believe in karma, oh yes, karma can be a b@#%h!
