California May Take Lead in Banning Wildlife Killing Contests

We may just have a chance to take a bit of the fun out of killing. On April 16, the California Fish and Game Commission will hear public testimony before voting on whether to make wildlife killing contests illegal in the state.

I once heard the saying "As goes California, so goes the rest of the nation". It will be true in the case of hunting contests, I am sure.

A noble attempt to slow down the inevitable extinction of wildlife and the imbalance of nature before all is lost. Are there enough left truly dedicated to such a cause ... we'll see won't we.

Anyone who gets pleasure out of taking a life is in urgent need of medical care, they are clearly very seriously unstable and should be locked away so that they don't hurt themselves or anyone else.

So true Howard!

If they kill an animal with no remorse, then they will kill another human without any feelings whatsoever!

REAL men shaking hands congratulating each other on ther "take". Even as a child this was a horror to me.My father never hunted, but had friends who did.
My earliest memory was when I was 6/7 yrs. old. A friend of the family had a bear cub stuffed and it stood in his real estate office with lollypops in its paw. I remember being so scared of it, my parents left me in the car(it was permissable in those days).
