Hunters Helping the Hungry Is a Self-Serving Endeavor

In mid-December 2009, Congressman Scott Murphy introduced the Hunters Helping the Hungry Act. It entitles hunters who donate their kill to anti-hunger programs, and those who process the kill, to take a tax deduction.

The same crap happens here; "we need to thin out the deer population and all of the meat will be given to shelters" as if that makes it right!
The blood thirsty ones will use any damn excuse so they can keep on killing!
Look at the bastard in the photo-thinks he is a "big macho man"-he should be told what the hell he is!

Raine no one is forcing anybody to do anything, it is a choice that can be made.

I'm no hunting fan either. However, I don't think feeding venison to the hungry is as horrible as the article says. As far as self-serving tax breaks, this one is just one of many, and definitely not the most damaging.

The one thing that really bothers me, and the article failed to mention, is that hunters will be encouraged to kill more animals by this Act: "Wait a minute... I'll miss out on a tasty piece of venison because I decided to feed it to the hungry. Better kill another one!!"

Too bad Raine doesn't like animals very much, being that people who are vegan, very simply, are against cruelty to animals that is rampant on today's farms, and in hunting, which is not a "sport" until the deer have guns and know how to use them.

Men are Jealous of animals that is why they have to kill them. Think about it. I have studied worked and been a rescurer for many years. I do believe they are jealous. No need to kill like they do food is plenty and animals will take care of themselves. If there is not enough food they will die normally naturally. They balance the earth don't need man to do it.
