I keep getting an error message when I go to the petition site. Will try again. Leave the snakes alone and have the hunters kill each other off. It would be a much nicer world!!

Signed. There are people whose only objective in life is to take other creatures' lives - the more the better - and swho can only have fun by killing. Shame on them. They are disgusting and should be killed the way they kill.

It seems there was a split somewhere in the human gene pool, with those possessing the Bubba Burpwad gene always appealing to their most base instincts for bloodlust. Killing animals for entertainment is vile. I hope the rattlers get hefty bites in first. This groups of 'wads deserve it. Now THAT, I can get behind.

So disgusting and heartbreaking.
What did the snakes do wrong? They did not choose to be snakes.
Humans are a million times worst, wish those humans could be hunted down the same way.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

went to one in the 70's. People cluster around like ghouls to watch. Maybe its a form of psychological transferance. Whatever you hate (mother in law) or fear (boss) is getting their "just dessert" in the form of a reptile that no longer defend itself. And you get to eat them. Nothing beats playing with your food, or at least having a little fun tortureing it first.
Don't worry there is always scorpions and Lyme ticks to deal with. Wonder what flavor they come in?

I like Gloria's point about psychological transference. I have read something about why bear-baiting was so popular in sixteenth-century England: that it was a way of trying to cope with the paralyzing fear of the unknown, a creature from the dark forest. But by torturing and murdering animals, people become the thing they fear. Signed and noted, thanks!
