There should not be animal killing contests It is vindictive and cruel Children of twelve years of age participate in these contests This is just teaching young people that animals are worth nothing and that its ok to be cruel to animals Plus the more people kill the more they get desensitized to killing next stop is humans I would have thought that the US has enough problems with killing and guns and would be trying to get away from bloodthirsty sports and killing for fun and entertainment This is just again an all out slaughter of defenceless animals

It is completely barbaric and cruel to promote these events or to participate in them. It is no wonder that this country has so many problems when all we do is promote violence in any form, teach our children that it is ok to kill animals for fun and show a complete disregard for life, any life. These events need to be stopped and should in no way be used as fundraisers. That is just dressing up murder for a good cause. They have no redeeming value and they are a discredit to animals and humanity.

No one can escape reaping whatever we sow. We waste these short lifetimes whenever we focus our attention on dominating the material world and the beings that inhabit it. We are guests here and must take the opportunity to meditate within, go Organic Vegan, never harm, humble ourselves, and experience the loving spiritual heights during meditation. Why are so many people so ignorant of this? These sentient lives are being tormented, made extinct, terrified, unfairly abused and killed. We must stop doing this evil.

Noted and signed with comment. This is at least the fourth killing competition I have signed petitions for. What do these people think they are teaching the future generation? Guns, guns, and promote it as fun and entertainment - oh lets go to the killing contest on Saturday, whoopee it will be so much fun. So extremely sad!!

This reminds me of a story I saw on the History Channel. In the earlier 1900's (actually I think it was in the 40's or so), there was a bount on bank robbers of 5000.00 dollars/dead or alive; if caught(thwarted) in the act of commiting an actual bank robbery.

4 men walked into a bank and held it up at gun point. The town ammassed(all armed) so fast on the bank, each citizen hoping to kill one of the bank robbers for the reward.

It was almost funny.
