Dog fighting and cock fighting are banned in the US, but in 19 states, pen hunting is not. NC Wildlife Advocates member John Edwards calls it a "heinous, barbaric blood 'sport'" and wants it banned in NC. Support Rise NC's efforts to outlaw this torture!

Cowardly obnoxious - I could fill a book with adjectives to describe all hunters everywhere. They are all cast out of the same mould - all love to see bloodshed, all love to pit themselves armed to the teeth against an unarmed victim. They are no better than the murderer or rapist who stalks his human victim armed with a knife or gun.

signed. I don't get hunting. Why does anyone want to kill an animal that deserves to live just as much as a human. The psychological profile of serial killers is consistent with the characteristic traits of hunters . . . . so why promote this type of behavior? Killing an innocent soul is about as low as a human can go.

I meant - My petition DOES NOT tell the whole story -- the change petition is more graphic and points out that the defenseless animals are caught in steel traps - and left injured and starving often -- before they are put in the pens to be hunted by packs of dogs.

This org is working extremely hard to get this barbaric practice ended, and they really need 20,000 signatures to get it the attention it needs. Please pass on the petition to all you can. Thanks for all your support!

Hunt pens are not hunting, not sportsmanlike, not about skill, not entertainment, not fun.
They ARE about egregious cruelty, torture and animal abuse by cowards and bullies and incompetent wanna-be hunters. This practice is unconscionable and despicable by those who would trade on the misery and suffering of sentient beings. There is no integrity involved in murdering a tortured, starved animal with overpowering force. This base and shameful practice needs to be stopped immediately.
