Can't help thinking of Lincoln's quest to keep the city of NY from spreading poisons in Central Park; bad enough when illegal, just plain stupid when legal.

||Boy oh boy. The hunter wanted to shoot a vulture one day and thought it was funny. Funny? I don't get it. Nothing about the incident or the hunting of small animals from his porch is funny or amusing to me.
I wish there were some standard of responsibility to the environment and respect for living things that one had to pass before getting a hunting license. I don't hunt. Maybe there is and I just don't know about it. I hope that during the year that his license is suspended he rethinks his hunting aspirations and finds another hobby.

||Agreed. I couldn't fathom why shooting from one's back porch should be "Hunting" or "LIcensed Hunting." If one just sits on the porch and shoots at anything going by, I'd say there is no sporting going on at all. I thought if one were hunting, that meant hunting for something in particular, not just random shooting into the air. Well, I don't suppose this guy will figure that out, even while his license is suspended.

||What about Micheal Vics, hanging and drowning at least 8 dogs because they weren't winners in the fighting ring. Killing for the fun of it, Yes? He'll get off with maybe doing a years time, aand paying a huge fine, which he can well afford with no problem :'-(

||I say give Vick the same treatment the dogs were given next time his team loses a game.......
