    I don't see the big deal, animals are dying in the wild constantly. Pigeons are everywhere, killing some to prevent them from pooping on peoples cars is worth it to me.

    Kicking animals, tearing their wings apart by hand, destroying property and more animal cruelty?

    I have nothing against hunting for food or fun but if you want to do it the very least thing you can do is to ensure that your prey doesn't suffer and to ensure that you pick it up.

    The way they're doing it is what is wrong NOT the fact that they're killing them.

It was the largest fund-raiser the town had. However animal-rights groups won in court and had the event shut down.

    To date none of those animal-rights groups have offered to help the town of Higens, its volunteer fire company, or the poor there-in.
    Let me shed a tear for the inhabitants of a town that is so lacking in talent and hardworking people that the only way they can get money is through abusing and destroying other life forms.

    Why should the pigeons suffer because some of some human trash that can't get their shit together.

    Not saying all hunters are sociopaths. It takes a special person to want to bash a birds head in on the sole of their boot like that one guy. Those are the ones that I am worried about having access to semi-automatic weapons.
    By your logic anything can be an outlet for sociopaths if used in the right context.

    Otherwise you should not shoot animals for fun.
    You should not hunt wild pigeons for food because they can carry many contaminations. Would you do that with rats?

    Killing random living creatures for no reason whatsoever other than to kill something is still off and slightly disturbing. Hunting for food is another matter.
    This is pretty much my stance as well.

    I think that shooting birds is disgusting, but using copters to shoot videos of people without their permission is even more disgusting.

    If a copter is spying on me and I am not doing anything wrong then that is a problem since they are just stalking me. However that isn't the case here, these guys are sick people killing for fun as such in my mind it is acceptable. If you have nothing to hide then you won't fear being caught on camera :P

    Hey, we agree on something =)

    I have no issue with shooting them as a pest, raising them for sport seems like it would likely create more pests that could get loose and is counter productive... using live animals to vent frustrations is rather worrying to me, torturing animals is quite often an early stage of development for serial killers. Obviously everyone who is cruel to animals doesn't become one or we would have thousands of new serial killers each year but it still bothers me.
    I hunt but its always for two reasons: to keep the population of my prey in check since we killed most of their natural predators and for meat.

    If you shoot an animal, do your best to make it clean and painless, it makes the meat taste better since there isn't as much adrenaline pumping through their system and you wont have to spend as much time trying to find them after they run.

    Hunting for fun is not my style. I'm a animal person so I think this is wrong.
