WILDLIFE KILLING CONTESTS WITH CASH PRIZES – IN A TIME OF MASS EXTINCTION

From the Washington Post: “Dead foxes were piled high in the pickup truck after the hunting contest in Frederick County in January. Men lifted the bloodied animals out of the truck by their legs, dropping them on the ground to be counted. The winner of the contest killed 38 foxes and won about $400, said the undercover investigator for the Humane Society of the United States whose graphic video footage of the event was made public Wednesday…. Such hunting contests are legal in Maryland and 44 other states.”

“That which befalls the sons of men befalls beasts. One thing befalls them. As the one dies, so dies the other. Yes, they have all one breath. So that a man has no preeminence above a beast. For all is vanity.”  — Ecclesiastes 3:19
