I'm currently living in Idaho (about an hour from Yellowstone) and wolves are such a big problem here that the government is actually encouraging hunting them, because they are starting to attack local cattle and whatnot. So actually that guy wasn't really doing anything wrong.

This is the border between 'what's practical' and 'what's ethical'.

The fact that these here might be a problem to the farmers' cattle and whatnot is one thing, but the guy here was a cunt who played upon the basic instincts of a mother wanting to save a child in need, just so he could get a trophy. And he felt proud of it.

That's disgracing every modern hunter in the most despicable way.

I understand what you're saying, but the end result is still the death of the wolf, so why does it really matter HOW he kills it?

Not trying to sound douchey.

You MAY try and see it this way.

The problem is with the hunter and the means used for the kill. There is a certain amount of respect placed with the canine race due to how they make good household pets with the proper amount of care and treatment, seeing as they're more than a bunch of mindless runts. Add that to the moral statemenet that you're not supposed to enjoy killing another living being, and you've got a preeeetty wrong picture over a guy holding up a wolf as a trophy, believing himself to be a man.

But hey, why is this different from killing fish? From killing one of the many other wolves? Why not take some pride in killing such a beautiful and mighty beast since we're doing it anyhow? Well sadly because this guy played the creature on a basic motherly instinct whereas it went to help a tiny, wounded cub. If it was a human then everyone would've tossed the guy into a fire, but since its a wolf, only those who really care for animals have this feeling.

I feel like its the fact that he lured it away using the sound of a crying wolf pup
