Trophy hunting cruel

Only seven per cent of those polled supported trophy hunting, thereby indicating that 93 per cent did not support this.

I note that in The NEWS of Jan.14 there was an article regarding trophy hunting that stated that a poll was done by Insights West saying that only seven per cent of those polled supported trophy hunting, thereby indicating that 93 per cent did not support this.

I, also, am against trophy hunting for many reasons — the cruelty and waste of many animals who are already nearing extinction in many parts of the world.

The loss of habitat, pollution, machines, hunting for food, etc. are all taking their toll on wildlife.

Life, in all its forms, is precious, and should not be ended for someone’s pleasure in killing.

I hope that all people recognize this and that they will not participate in the wanton killing of sentient animals who feel pain as we do. Have you read Silent Spring?

Please take a few moments to request that our provincial government reduce all hunting, including the cruelty of trapping animals.

Until Jan. 31, the public is requested to comment on the proposed changes to the 2016-2018 Hunting and Trapping Regulations by contacting the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations at: http:apps.nrs.gov.bc.ca/pub/ahte/
