I can absolutely understand and, to be honest, I'm not even sure how to defend that.

The truth is that yes, I do eat foods that required an animal to be killed in order for me to eat it and no, I don't feel bad when I'm eating beef or chicken or whatever else. But there's something very real about seeing David Booth shoot and kill an animal that is perhaps lacking when I'm eating a burger because I didn't actually see the animal get killed.

Maybe the best way to defend my view would be to say that what Booth is doing is not for the purpose of nourishing himself. It's purely for entertainment. There are less destructive and harmful things that he could do if he was looking for an adrenaline rush. Bungee jumping, hiking, boating?? I don't know but I don't agree with killing animals for fun.

It's not a strong argument but I still can't help but judge him for being okay with doing that.

You basically eat animals for fun. There's so many other things you can eat. To say you will never respect David Booth is quite a stretch.

I am likely desensitized to hunting, because I grew up with it, so I have no problem with him hunting.

But, could it be that those who haven't become accustomed to hunting are hyper-sensitized?

The only part I don't like is the garbage baiting. That's like taking advantage of a drunk chick.

Try harder, don't cheat.

I think that if you have enough reserve about Booth's bear hunt, then you should look at the reality of mainstream meat.
Would you rather be a wild bear that met an end, or a pig in a gestation cage?
If Booth's kill was murder, than the grocery stores are selling genocide.

The only type of hunting I disaprove of is hunting for sport, there's absolutly no need for that. Hunting for survival, like for food and hide ect, and also hunting for pest/population control is perfectly fine and acceptable.

And for people bitching about people whining about this while they eat hamburgers and whatnot, animlas like domestic cows and chickens serve no real purpose other than to feed people. They are there solely to be killed to feed humans. As a matter of fact, being a human (as in: being both omnivores and at the top of the food chain) all animals are for eating, plane and simple.

Don't take anything I say seriously! EVER!

Why are you suddenly mentioning vegetarians and then calling them uninformed and ignorant? Did I miss something here, or did a CDCer vegetarian say something stupid? Show me the quote and save yourself.

Likely the same mentality, except hypocrisy in this case.

Can anyone on here prove that he was just trophy hunting?? Did anyone ask what he did with the meat etc??? From the posts I read it seems everyone is judging without all the facts. If I missed a post that showed this, then I apologize but people should not make assumptions.

I asked him myself, he said he blew the carcass up with dynamite in the most loving and cuddly fashion to adhere to PETA standards.

I agree. I haven't yet seen anything that would suggest they just left the bear in the woods to rot(minus the head). And until then, I certainly won't jump to conclusions or verbally berate him.

If only it was a level playing field and the bears would hunt people for sport the same way. Oh how people would change their tune then.

And who determined this purpose? You? Those in the animal agriculture business? God? This purpose you speak of only begs the question.

You sound like certain individuals who on the basis of arbitrary characteristics, marginalized groups of people to mere property status. These peoples purpose, as slaves, was to do whatever their masters said so. But this purpose isn't morally justified.

Being at the top of the food chain means nothing. The law of the jungle is not a moral code. As rational beings, we do what we have the most reason to do. Understanding that animals are beings that can agonize and suffer, as well as experience great joy and pleasure just like you or I, is reason enough to take them into moral consideration.

How we cruelly raise, treat, and slaughter billions of animals in factory farms every year is morally condemnable

There is no sufficient reason to argue otherwise.

Try me.

I knew those comments were familiar when I heard them on the news (having read them here) and couldn't figure out why they wouldn't just attribute them to where they came from. Then I remembered this is CTV and it wouldn't have helped CTV with any credibility in this story. The entire piece pissed me off royally, especially with the lead-in story (which was no accident and was done purely to inflame watchers) of the sows being shot in the Smithers and Hixon area (the latter being not far up the highway from me) leaving cubs to fend for themselves. It was pure inflammatory 'journalism' specifically presented in a certain way in order to inflame people who haven't got a clue about hunting or bears or live in areas where their only interaction with a bear is what they see on CTV 'news' or the television.

Many bear end up dead in North Van , Coqutlam etc , because people leave their garbage out at the wrong time or leave it unsecured.
They are directly responsible for the death of those bear.
Just because you don't like hunting that means nobody should do it ?

I can, and will, continue to eat delicious, delicious meat and no 90lb vegan is going to stop me.

I am a human, humans eat meat, animals are meat, I eat animals.

I don't really care if the animals I eat are tortured in a factory, that's how it is and it 'ain't changing anytime soon. I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

Your opinion is yours to have.

I eat grocery store meat too, so I am not one to chastise.

My post was more a response to the admittedly hypocritical double standard that hockeyville88, and many others (although not as admittedly) have for their meat source.

I don't think the vegetarians and vegans (I don't remember seeing anyone claim to be so... regardless) are the issue in this thread. At least they have a leg to stand on; a stance, if you will. Non-vegetarians who oppose hunting are flip-floppers. I can at least agree to disagree with a vegetarian, but meat eating hunting haters can't agree with themselves, so how could I agree with them?

To be honest, from what I've seen, the vast majority of people that take issue with the picture and video are assuming that #7 didn't eat the meat/should have afforded to eat tortured grocery store meat/should have used a rifle because it is quicker/should have used a knife cause it's more fair... so on and so on. We all know where assuming gets us... It makes asses out of the both of us.

I think there's at least a good chance he ate the meat. He may not have... I don't know. But, to me is the best argument is whether or not he ate it.

BTW, hockeyville88, this isn't an attack on you. You at least seem to recognize that your stance is conflicting.

Pretty funny how defensive hunters are.

It's kind of pointless to argue with people who defend their own actions by pointing out flaws in greater society while they separate themselves from society.

i.e.

non-hunter - "I think hunting is wrong."
hunter - "you eat meat? you're wrong too.... so I am right."

Reminds me of SUV drivers who like to brag about their rides knowing full well someone is going to say something about fuel consumption. Most of them just like arguing and talking down to people.

ACTUALLY I live in West Vancouver and from my understanding the bears that make it down the mountains get tranquilized and re-released at the top of the mountain, unless there is some sort of emergency inwhich they will be killed to prevent danger to people, (even then they will tranquilize if possible). They do not necessarly die. Furthermore, those bears are direct threats to human life (especially kids) so it is somewhat justified. This bear was trapped and then brutally hunted for sport (got shot and was probably suffering for sometime before it actually died), not survival. Just my 2 cents, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. :)

Someone introduce Booth to video games...that way he can shoot as many things as he likes.

bah I can't help but feel so bad for the poor bear! The bear wasn't even a threat to his life...

A big pet peeve of mine is when there are those who truly believe that there are certain animals you can eat and then there are some that you cannot. The exception would be those who follow religious laws.

I don't know why people are getting so worked up over Booth shooting a bear anyway for whatever reason. If I went out and shot a bear just for the hell of it and posted on myface I doubt anybody would care. But just because he's a hockey player (especially for Vancouver) everybody has to crucify him.

I'm not condemning Booth, if hunting is necessary to keep populations under control.

You on the other hand, are an irrational chump.
