2021 questions (37/365)

February 6

What do you think about hunting?

The answer to this question is going to be highly dependent on geographical location, culture, and socioeconomic positioning. As an affluent person who dwells about a mile from the nearest well-stocked supermarket, I don’t need to do it. I don't have livestock to protect and I wasn't raised in a culture that prized hunting skill or ascribed any religious, spiritual, or symbolic meaning to it. If you’re perfectly capable of surviving and obtaining food without hunting, I can’t see the point of setting out on a walk with the sole purpose of killing an animal simply because you can. I definitely don’t understand trophy-hunting. It’s cruel and wasteful.
