Things have been the way they are for so long that most people just accept them. But when you stop and think about it, having hunters be in charge of the wildlife departments is like appointing pedophiles to run the PTA. We must never lose sight of the fact that hunters have ulterior motives for our precious wildlife.
When hunters say they “care” about animals, well, they mean it in a lustful, self-serving sort of way. And when they use words like “love” and “respect,” they sound about as sincere as a spousal abuser, rapist or pedophile referring to the objects of their obsession.
Hunters have no business “managing” wildlife. They can’t seem to understand that the objects of their obsession are sentient beings with needs, wants and life experiences of their own. And every time game departments disrespect Mother Nature by calling for another “management action,” they are renouncing her healing ability and cheating her out of one more chance to restore her time-tested balance.
